East led the 4th best C, to the jack, three, queen. David now played the diamonds from the top and when the queen came down he claimed nine tricks.

East led the nine of spade, covered by the queen, king and ace. David played three of diamond, two, ace and seven. Two of club, queen, king and six. Now nine of club established the suit for five trick and when the spade broke four-four David could claim nine tricks one more time!

We had an almost average day earning another 44 VP to bring our total up to 88 VP for the event. The Team is in good spirit and looks forward to another exciting day tomorrow.
