Analysis by Craig Hemphill

Sometimes the cards are just so favorable for declarer that an abundance of unexpected tricks just flow into the coffers. Here the trump queen pops up, the heart king is onside, and the club suit behaves. Ten tricks, despite 11 HCP opposite 9 HCP and with just a 5-3 fit.

There just isn't any way to anticipate outcomes of every deal in bridge. If there were, part of the fascination would be gone. Keep bidding the percentage games, don't fret the occasional odds-against miss.
