Moonraker, a James Bond novel. The hand is given below:

Drax is given the imposing East cards, a point counter's dream come true. At this juncture in the evening, the betting between the adversaries has become fierce and the stakes are high. Bond pretends to be intoxicated in order to

As you can see, dummy did not have much, but it was exactly what the spy ordered. The ♦ J lead was ruffed in dummy. However, no other lead would have affected the outcome. At trick two. Bond led a trump from dummy and covered East's 9 with his 10. He ruffed another diamond, removing East's last honour. Another trump finesse followed and all that remained was to pull East's trump king. Bond then led the ♦ Q, capturing West's 10. All of Drax's honours were totally useless in the face of declarer's minor-suit winners!

The moral of the story is - many players are deeply infected with "point countitis" but point count is only one factor in hand evaluation.
