With West's blunder, opponents make a Contract

 

Coastweek -- In the following hand Declarer misplayed the hand but survived due to defenders mistake.





     
DEALER:         SOUTH               EAST-WEST          VULNERABLE        BIDDING:

                  A Q 9 8 5                      
                                                 
                                                 


Declarer ruffed West's opening lead of Ace of Hearts, cashed the Ace and Queen of Clubs, then led a Diamond to Dummy's Ace and a Second Diamond.

East discarded a Spade and West won the Knave.

West cashed the King of Diamonds and East discarded another Spade.

West continued with the King of Hearts and Declarer ruffed, East following with the Queen.

Declarer cashed the Ace of Spades discarding Dummy's last Heart.

Crossed to the King of Clubs drawing East's Knave.

Then ran the Diamonds.

Eleven tricks and game made.

It would have been a different matter if East had discarded his Queen of Hearts on one of West's Two Diamond winners.

Then the ensuing King of Hearts lead from West would have promoted East's Knave of Trumps.

Declarer should just have cashed the Ace of Clubs before broaching Diamonds.

In that case the contract would have been unbeatable.
