Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Is the defence clear?
South's error is being onlead. Well, perhaps not. Declarer might have QJx AQJ10xxx xx x. Just take your K, lead to partner's A and expect the trump promotion. Winning the K and leading a is insane.

Straight out of the twilight zone -- 3 of the 4 compass points.
Flawed Multi
I would submit that on this hand it was especially easy to nail them since they essayed the three level. What is South doing bidding 3N? What a ridiculous call. Why is it that nobody ever seems to want to double for a penalty : they see people open this kind ...

New suit forcing/non-forcing?
"...doubling with 5-4-3-1 isn't attractive". Really? They quite likely have a seven card fit or even six. Your side quite likely has only a seven card fit. They are in -- cheap at half the price even if it makes. I would not be surprised if it went down ...
