In a team of four match, team A played in a contract - say it was four spades - which was made. in the replay the hand was passed out. Later a card, the ace of spades, was found on the floor at the first table. This, of course, is the reason for the pass out; a player in team B observed that he did not have an opening bid and omitted to count his cards. No doubt a procedural penalty could be incurred by team B but does the board count in the match so that team A get their apparently good result from +420 at one table and 0 at the other? It doesn't seem to be specifically covered by Law 14. Does Law 1 apply, in that the pack was defective as it contained only 51 cards, so the result should be cancelled? As it happens it didn't affect the result of the match.
