At the table, South bid 2 (CAPP = 1-suiter),
and over partner's 2 relay, South bid 3 !!!

North, Dag of Norway (DagJ) bid 4 valuing his two aces and 3-card support.


The lead was the spade 4. Declarer went up with the ace, finessed the heart 9, another heart to hand, and passed the club knave. Misdefence. The spade king came back. Ruff, and the club 10 conceded for 5-up.

90.48% awaits you if you do that.
