1N (All Pass)
North-South got to 1N from the North seat after Meg overcalled 1H. She got off to a spectacular start with the ten of spades (playing attitude leads), starting the unblock. (You can see that if she leads a spade spot card, the suit blocks and we get only three spades.) I won with the king, dropping the jack, and continued with the ace, dropping the queen. Now a heart through, declarer ducking, partner playing the ten, and declarer winning the ace (it's probably the right play to duck the ten of hearts, but we would untangle our tricks anyway). A club finesse was taken to partner's king. She shot her last spade through the eight to my 97. I took two spades and led hearts through again. We took four spades, four hearts, a club, and a diamond, for +400 the hard way.
