As the quarter-finals unfold, this deal might just play a part in the final outcomes.
Here is the action from the match that was featured on VuGraph:

If 4Fiori agreed hearts 5Quadri was presumably exclusion Blackwood.
I opined that you would probably find this sequence on page 42 of Meckwell’s systemnotes on hands that are 6-7-0-0.

I don’t know what 4Quadri meant, but I think NS did well to flatten the deal, don’t you (my cynical colleagues point out that if partner can jump to 6Cuori missing the CuoriAQ10 and the FioriAK then he must have a diamond void, which is a fair point).
With USA1 ahead 179-160 it kept England in the match.
