Catherine was sitting North and Susanna was South for England. Susanna reasoned that she had too many clubs for that to be a fruitful line of attack so decided to lead a diamond (9D) to try and get partner in to cash spades and give her a ruff - very well done indeed - Catherine won the AD, cashed the AS and KS and gave her partner a ruff for a swing to England as next door N/S bid to 5Cx going one off.

The curse of Scotland struck again...
