I  wondered how effective the alleged Fantoni-Nunes vertical and horizontal signalling might be.  This is Board 4 from Monaco v Gordon of R8 2015 Spingold. If 3 was led horizontally, then on winning A does it becomes significantly easier to find the actual shift to A and another? (Rather than trying for a diamond ruff)

At the other table, Zimmerman passed 3NT and so it was +700 and 12 imps to Monaco on the board. (Personally, I would bid 4 - we lost a big semi-final after 2NT-3, 3-3NT, P because our player thought the question being asked was do you have a 4333 shape when the question being asked was do you have three spades.)
