Any comments, given agreements embedded, on the auction?  

At any rate, you are declaring 4.  You receive a lead of the T, won by your A.

You play the Q next.  (Do you?)  The LOL to your left plays the T in tempo.  Fearing losing to the K on your right and suffering a club ruff at the next trick followed by later losing to the K and holding yourself to ten tricks, you panic and rise with the A.  (Do you?)  You now finesse the J, losing to K.  Holding yourself to +650.

Edited on 10-6-18 to correct the reporting to show the actual auction at the table.
