Declarer claims, saying dummy is good (diamonds and clubs). After the
hands a put back in the board, but before starting the next hand, the
defense contests the claim, noting that clubs are blocked and declarer
will end up in his hand.
So what happens? It depends now on what declarer has in his hand. The
question is, in case of doubt, which is certainly the case tonight, who
gets the benefit of the doubt?
The rules seem clear that it is defending side. Even though they kind of
created the problem.
So, it can be do the defenders advantage, if they want to dispute a
claim, to wait until the hands are shuffled and put back in the board?
