Once again, no score. There was a bit of excitement during the play. Since the King of Clubs is amongst three cards, a finesse or two ruffs - either line yields an extra Club trick.

Deal 62: No Exchange.

Total : INDIA BLUES: 129               
          FORMIDABLES: 127

"After Diamond lead and if it is continued, the hand can make 11 tricks on a simple cross ruff"
