Would the best auction be 2-2-2-3-4-4-4NT-5-6?

Well, I'm not unlimited, being a passed hand, but there is still plenty of bidding room to explore for the slam. If I had splintered, I hope he would have started looking further than the shutout 4 bid. I agree with the part where my partner should have done something to make sure slam was reached. Thanks Mr. Allan!

I do play Kickback in with some partners, but not with the one where this hand occurred. Nonetheless, that is very helpful. Thanks Mr. Moese!

I almost did that, but I wasn't sure how my partner would take it. Thanks for the advice Mr. Diamond!

That's true. Do you suggest that my partner bid 3 over 3, since I am showing extras by bidding slowly? Thanks Mr. Adams!

That's a good point. I don't mind declaring, but it seems that every logical finesse is off. At least the robot is better at the finessing part. It's just everything else that the robot does that becomes really bad.

I looked into jumping, but the description did not fit my hand. I guess 4NT would have been a better bid.

I almost bid 3NT, but thought I was too strong with that hand. I also considered going straight to 6H, but then if W has all the remaining points, that's in trouble also. If GIB can make it, they should. As you said, no reason for that lead. He knows the K is either singleton or doubleton.
