ATB/UBTJ - hand from sectional swiss

from a match yesterday's sectional swiss team, please assess blame appropriately.  If you feel additional choice(s) are needed, please mention and I can add.

yes, you can comment about the bidding if you like, but that is what actually occurred at the table.  If desired you can factor the bidding into your blame choice... 

play at our table:  (sorry, I have not figured out how to do a 'movie' inside the hand construction...)

Trick 1:  A lead by West (E/W lead A from AK), East played the 9 (UDCA carding)

Trick 2, West switched to a low to the Q and K.

Trick 3, low led by South, West played the Jack.

Trick 4, West cashes A

Trick 5, West plays 3rd , ruffed in dummy.

Trick 6, to Q.

Then A.  Result, +300 for E/W, lose 9 imps to the +680 at the other table (4H making 6 on friendly red suit lies).  E/W can get +800 (2 diamonds, 2 hearts, 1 club and 2 club ruffs), or at least +500 even w/o the club ruffs if they get 1 trump, 2 diamonds, 2 hearts and club) which would reduce the loss to 5 imps.
