Analysis by Raad Bunni

West may try to SAK in 3, and N/S my push further to 3s. Ruff the opening lead, play a to A and ruff another . Play Q losing to K and East may try another trump to cut on your ruffs. What you will end up losing is 1, 1, 1, and 1 that you you lose at the end.

Analysis by Robert Todd

West opens 2 and North passes. East probably double checks that he's sorted his hand correctly, and then bids Ogust or Feature ask, and South passes. West shows a bad hand but a good suit (2 of top 3 should be a good suit even if red), and so East has to decide just how pushy to get with this. He has all those outside controls and a huge fit, but that doesn't mean there aren't outside losers, especially since partner showed a bad hand. It may be hard for East to pass up, and and he might bid 6, but lots of players will just be in 4.
Everything is smiles today - the K falls first even if declarer is contemplating a finesse and the can be set up with a successful finesse and one round of ruffing to take care of the loser, so really declarer has all the tricks!
