I'd probably win the ace and table a low heart before the opps have any idea what is going on. Likely to survive this even when there is a stiff diamond as they misread what is going on.

The ACBL's (Secret?) Arbitration Agreement
administrative suspension if the acbl wins.. see CDR 4.3.4
Change of Pace Query: Your Option?
