You answered No, the contract was not made. I am afraid thatI have to agreewith that. If you play out the trump at the first opportunity, I think you will be down 2, and if you don't do that, but do some trumping of Hearts, I think you will be down 1. 3 No Trump also is going to be down 1.
Never mind. This is what happens in Bridge and makes it such a fascinating game. Now we have to decide how to score this. The contract was 4 Spades, Doubled and Vulnerable and 9 tricks were made.
36. What Score do East and West get above the line?
