Sorry, I don't get it. You took the finesse when it was marked with West by the point count?

Why is Q marked with West??? 2 showed 6-10 total points and West has already shown 6 HCP. Notwithstanding total points and HCP, West doesn't need anything else in points to have bid 2.

East not ruffing with the 10 would be a mistake if West had QJ which would promote a trump trick. Double dummy, declarer won't misguess spades so that looks like an insufficient simulation that led to a bug in the play.

"Michaels -- 3- ; 3- ; 5+ ; 5+ ; 9+ total points; forcing"

I wouldn't know how to handle the range.
