On this deal, a skilled declarer achieved a strange top against us.
2 with 2 overtricks on the super-Moysian fit.
Declarer (South) won the lead cashed AK and led a to LHO's A. Declarer ruffed the return and led . LHO mistakenly played low and dummy;s 9 won the trick. Now ruff. finesse, ruff, K, ruff.
Thus, declarer made 1 x , 2 x , 2 x and 5 x !

Rub of the green. 2 might not be so attractive if South found East with a 9-10 point hand. Tip your cap to declarer for the play, but the bid is a bad one that panned out

I don't consider play low from KJ74 a mistake. You are looking at 2 sure tricks in the suit, and I'm not throwing one of them away because of a possible finesse of the 9.

Presumably 2H showed hearts and a minor?

X = PEN,
2 = ART. Both Ms (Landy).
Other suit-bids = NAT

Now I have rather less sympathy for the 2H bid.

Sir,something appears rather weird.How come 2H bid was made on a 4 carder suit.Why did they play in 2H and not 3NT.It appears a wee bit surprising that with the given hand North who is certainly worth a bid kept quiet.(over 2H).

It's odd that there is no way of safely showing a 4-card major. I can understand not wanting to give up the penalty double over weak NT, but one could use 2 for a 4-card major plus a 5-card minor and 2 for both majors, for instance.
