It looks right to us to ruff a , play a spade and plan on ruffing a spade back to hand, to ruff the last diamond. Eventually crossing to the A to draw the last trump.

Moss led a up to the k, the defense returned a , and then when spades broke 5-2 Moss could not get back to his hand enough times to ruff diamonds and draw trumps without being over-ruffed. So he went down 1.

The other table stopped in game, so what could have been an 11 imp pick up for Diamond, was another 11 imps to Fleisher. They are up 40 to 1 in the set leading 222 to 186 in the match.
