S2-R1 should not be passing this hand. L+1+A when you only block 1 out of 3 2nd rd suits is a must call.

As played I also think S2 should throw off the KC on that garbage TD lead but I can't prove that.

If S2 doesn't do that I think trump low-send high is best with L+1. In the actual hand he did trump low but then he didn't lead the Left to the maker. A fundamental mistake.

The pass is fine the play is not, by seat 2.
You allow your partner to go alone down 6 -8. If it's gets back to you. You have plenty of options to make a call. Not leading trump after trumping in on first trick is bad. Always show your partner the left in this situation. Then come back with the ace.

I'll admit I actually forgot to look at the score. I'm almost certain this is a call at say 0-0, 6-6, etc. Down 6-8 I'm not sure because the cost of the dealer passing does go down as S1-R2 loners are only worth 2 pts now and yea once in awhile we will unintentionally block a S4 game winning loner. All that taken into account I would still bet passing this hand is wrong even at 6-8.

Also, I missed it the first time around but up 8-6, S1 needs to donate with no trump no aces.
