North-South playiing 2/1 game force.  They had not discussed the meaning of 3 jump reverse over 1, thus North could not rebid 3.  Both players would have expected a 4 rebid by opener to be a splinter.

They also were not playing any type of Lebensohl or Ingberman over a reverse.  3 was an artificial game force.

Which player gets more blame for missing slam?  (The K was offside, but spades were 2-2, so 12 tricks scored easily.)

South gets more blame primarily due to the 3 bid
South gets more blame primarily for passing 4
North gets more blame primarily due to the 2 bid
North gets more blame primarily due to the 4 bid
Roughly equal blame for both players
Slam isn't that great a contract, so no big deal missing this slam
