One board that cost us the Tournament

Playing in what is now becoming one of our favourite tournaments, played for the last 5 years and once winners,three times second and once fourth.

This board cost us dearly and i still feel aggrieved and hard done by.

Doesn't feel like a bad overcall to me

Questioning the opposition i was told X was take-out 

Opening lead A followed by another then 2 rounds  and a  switch (everyone knows this is a singleton) Contract is now not looking promising!!!

How would you have played the hand after this auction? (Full hand on next page)

I played East for all the Hearts or at least four of them to the KJTx

Coming undone by the actual layout managed to go 3 off for a very poor score and missed first place by a mere 23 MPs

Did i play it badly or was i just done by the openers pass. (he said he had nowhere to go) 2 looked like a fair bid.
