I'm the West that doubled 5 Spades! I "earned" that bottom! Alan Hedegard
.
Couldn't somebody have bid the Slam???

Lesson!
Don't Underlead an Ace against a suit contract.
You could lose to a King Singleton! Lead the Ace of Hearts or another suit.
Don't underlead the Ace of Diamonds either.

The lead of "top of a run" (even tho it's only 2 long would have been better.)

I "earned" that bottom!! Alan
