How would you play 4S, after an auction like 1NT-(Cappelletti 2H)-2NT(some lebensohl)-3C-3S-4S?Q was led.

After the lead, GIB ruffed heart once, ruffed clubs twice to shorten the trump length to strip South, so that in the end, South had all trumps left, and had to ruff pd's natural diamond trick, and was endplayed!
It played like double dummy. I have no idea what made GIB to choose this line. Perhaps after the Cappelletti, GIB played the overcaller for some distribution, and South for trump length.

So the endplay wouldn't work (on the lead of the Q) if South had a spade less and a club more.

Nice!
