Analysis by Raad Bunni

You win the A. Many South will not make this hand without help from the opponents. South can win the K, play AK, finding the 3/2 split, now South plays the K and a small . East wins the Q and will return his J. As South you should duck. If East holds the trick he will probably switch to a low .Look how i played it. Not easy. 2, 5, 2

Analysis by Robert Todd

East opens 1 and South overcalls 1. West has a tough call - he doubles, not having enough to bid 2 as a forcing bid here, or bids 1NT, or bids 3 (which has the advantage of blocking the opponents' as yet undiscovered fit), and then North likely just passes since partner is only an overcall (but may need to come in later since he does have 2 Aces!) That's also probably enough to just buy the whole shebang.
This is a lovely place to play - declarer loses 1 and 1, and a ruff if the defense finds it or the defense just leaves declarer to deal with himself, he loses another.
