The defence surprised me until I heard their post mortem which I admit sounded identical to many I have had with my partners:

West Robot:  Did you notice that you ducked the 6 holding AKQJ9 with the 10 on the board??

East Robot:  Forget that why didn't you give me a Heart ruff?  I led an obvious singleton. You know we have no suit preference agreements so you can ignore my low club back.

West:   Oh Sorry.  So you ducked the Diamond just to punish me?

East:    No,  You led a typically random 6.  I knew declarer had a singleton, so there was a 67% chance your 6 would win and you would wake up and give me my damn ruff!
