Clubs only played since trick 7 which everyone following C.
Trick 8 GIB W shows out.
But GIB E for some reason ducks at trick 8!

At least GIB is consistent she does the same at another table.

Gig has an annoying habit near the end. Gib likes to take it's sure trick as late as possible when it doesn't matter.
But Gib is sometimes wrong like in this case where it does matter and it never get's it's sure trick.

I suspect Gib got screwed up by the ratty preempt thinking you have spade trick (not that that is a reason to duck just speculating) but it is hard to figure out the inner workings of Gib.

Looks like an expert play to cover J and play a diamond to guarantee a 2nd club trick. I give GIB full credit for not unblocking K under the ace and setting up a chance to beat the contract.
