Poor bidding leads to fun hands

On board 17 of the third match yesterday, our opponents made 5 by squeezing West in the minors (after a slight misdefence).  So this board provided revenge!


The 3 was led round to the K.

K was cashed then 2 to the A followed by 2-7-8-J.

South then cashed the A and led the Q to the K.

Declarer then drew the last trump and played 4 producing this position

North is now squeezed on the forced heart return followed by cashing the last trump pitching 5 from dummy.

Probably not the best line but produced a cute result.

Making 4 was duplicated by two other pairs.
