A slam is laydown. I posted two bidding polls; first, with a decision for N when 4 comes to him; second, with a decision to S when 4 is passed to him. According to the first poll as of today (https://bridgewinners.com/article/view/bidding-problem-2-e128kr0oe9/), 38% of pollers elect 4. In the second poll (https://bridgewinners.com/article/view/bidding-problem-2-wxue0upbv5/), 76% elects to pass after the choice of 4. According to standard arithmetic, that implies that a random BW reader would miss this this slam at a 29% rate playing with him(her)self. For the record, since the bot's 4 could be anything, I thought further inquiry was warranted.
