So says Marvin Gaye.

I just watched a video where Zia - with 19HCP says (at 7:00 min. in) "Well, I know I should open a club, but I'm opening 2N."
So with 24 instead of 25, I opened 3NT.
My passed hand robot, clearly bruised with his encounter with Zia, figured that 7 was almost the same as 8 and bid 6NT.
It turns out to be makeable on the lead, and when I step through it, I still can't work it out.
The other person in the challenge went -2 in 7C, so I only lost 2 IMPs, but it's annoying not understanding where I went wrong.
West leads the J, which it turns out allows the contract to make.

Here's the full deal

non est deus ex machina; även maskiner behöver lite kärlek, J'ai toujours misé sur l'étrange gentillesse des robots.

The lead allows you to play on AK on trick 2 & 3 and then enter dummy with finesse, or force finesse so 4413 are tricks. percentage play not though. the drop of 8 from east makes this happen. now if west led 4th high with 3 :)
