Playing 6S by South, West gets off to sneaky
HJ lead.  Rising HA, South will discard heart
loser on successful club finesse.  However
upon drawing trumps, East discards heart on 
third spade, but immediately corrects to
spade.  Now South feels inclined to play low
heart to Q since East's heart is a penalty card.
Bad luck, 1 down.
So, in OZ, no problem, laughed away, but I
presume that in other countries, the "could
have known" law would be wheeled out
rather quickly.  With what result?

Cheers,
