The opponents' card isn't marked, but they say they play standard. Now what? Ok, double dummy you claim 11 tricks, but what if the hearts are 4-0 (10% of the time)? Play SK at trick one and you go down AT LEAST two tricks, with nine winners you can untangle off the top when NO GAME HAS ANY PLAY

Ok, I could have made 5N (4N without any risk at all) but +600 should be good, since NO GAME HAS ANY PLAY Enjoy your well earned 7.5 matchpoints on a 25 top. I hate matchpoints...
