2:  Precision

East led the 5 if diamonds to West's ace.  There was a long thought (agreed by all) before the 10 of diamonds return.  Declarer covered with the queen.  East won the king, and shifted to the queen of hearts.  The contract went down 1.  The director was called after the hand was completed.

Obviously if East continues diamonds the contract makes.

The result at the other table was 3 making 4, +130 for N-S.

If you are the director, what would you make the IMP score on the board?
