Telling the Truth about Trump

I’d named spades as trump and had 90 points meld, a marriage in trump, pinochle (jack of diamonds/queen of spades) and a nine of spades.  I had double 10 in trump, but no aces in the suit.  The bid was 210 and as my partner had 20 points meld, we needed to make 100 in tricks.  Ordinarily this shouldn’t have been difficult, but my partner had no spades, no trump.  We didn’t make bid.  We went bust or ‘set’ as we commonly say in my family.   Too bad for us, but those were the cards we were dealt.
