NS: 0 EW: 0

 

EW are playing standard (right-side up) signals.  NS play 2/1, without Namyats.

 

Trick 1: K-A-8-4

Trick 2: 2-3-A-5

Trick 3: K-A-7-8

Trick 4: 6-K-4-6

Declarer then has just a heart and diamond to lose, making 4.

W contends that E shouldn't lead a club at trick 4 because N played a club at trick 2, and that N, having opened 4, is unlikely to have the A.  E contends that W should have given count in clubs on trick 2.

How should E/W be apportioned the blame for letting this contract through?
