Escape 1x Down Four

It started as a routine third seat opening:

East
AJ107
K10
K63
J764

Who would not open 1?

After two passes, there came an expected double at balancing seat. It was passed out.

This turns out to be a very unlucky day. Running to 1 or 1 could have salvaged for down two which should be a good result since N/S had 12 tricks in hearts, whether they get there is a different story. But, sitting west, would anyone take a chance like this?

In case you are wondering, this was from BBO, where the robot passed it out.
