40 Points

and you still cannot make all thirteen tricks

 

 

On the following “contrived” hand even though North South have all 40 High Card Points it is not possible to make 13 tricks. The club suit is blocked and eventually West will make a Diamond assuming he doesn’t throw one away while declarer is cashing 8 winners in the other suits before touching Diamonds.
