One of the cutest hands I've seen in a while. Try not to use GIB, but can 4 (by North) always be made vs best defence?

Bridge-director fuzzy logic says that it can be made, but actual play is another matter.
Cute hand indeed.

As my wife will attest, I am not always good at following instructions: I initially analyzed this as played by South, and don't think it can be beaten from that side.

I don't see how east being on lead helps, so my take is that the contract is cold, played double-dummy. East might help declarer out, in real life, by bidding at some point.....say either by opening 1N or by bidding 1N after South opens and the auction goes 1H P 1S 1N

Personally, I can't see getting to 4S, but that's beside the point.

To put a focus on a specific line, I'll put this in spoilers if anyone is still trying to work out if it always makes. I managed to make it at the table with some help (yes I did push it too hard as North).
