After the great successes of the Blue team, Averelli, Belladonna and Garozzo played in a lot of exhibition matches, sometimes as part of "Omar Sharif's Bridge Circus" [or some such name]. There was one tour, according to Garozzo, which was a riotous success. Everyone came to see them play, and they cheered everything. Garozzo reached 3NT, which requires a finesse against a king: Garozzo finessed, the crowd cheered and clapped: what a wonderful player, he took a finesse!
Eventually Avarelli picked up a balanced 12count. Pass pass to him, he opened 1, playing Roman Club. After Garozzo's negative 1, he rebids 1 and this is passed out. Now comes the play. The crowd is restive. Where are the grand slams? How can their idols make game on a triple repeating squeeze if they are in 1? So, for the first time that day, a hand is played out in total silence.

This was the position with West on lead:

Well, not quite: fortunately there is one person in the room who can recognise a miracle when it happens in front of him. Well played, partner, says Garozzo!!
