Even though the declarer would know on the lead of the third heart that his RHO had ducked a ruffing finesse and remained with the HK,

the committee essentially forced him to play a loser on a loser to go down one.

Even if declarer did lose track of the S9  I see no way for him not to make his eleven tricks

Someone please help me understand that the committee got this right... it looks wrong to me.
