We had a poor auction to six hearts (my fault, I could have done more with the diamond void, but got too conservative).  There was nothing to the play - trump the diamond lead, draw trumps, and claim, establishing the clubs, with a marked finesse should they be 4-0.  

 

Apologizing, I looked at the Bridgemate, and we had 100%.  Huh??

Nationwide, 1010 was worth 92%.  Huh??

 

In our club, three pairs bid to slam, one in clubs.  One pair played 3NT, making five.  The rest played in a heart game.  No one in hearts took thirteen tricks.  Huh??  No one in game even managed 12 tricks.  The pair in the silly 3NT+2 scored quite well.  Huh??

 

So, can someone explain this one to me.  How is this possible?
