With no interference, you bid your way to 6.  The lead is the A, followed by the  2 (East plays the 3).  You win the with the Ace and play the 6 to the King (LHO plays 10), the 3 back to the Ace (LHO pitches a Spade), finesse the 9, and draw the last trump with the Q.  You cash the A and both follow with small cards.  At this point, I cashed the K and the last club, playing for a Heart-diamond squeeze if either hand held the Q and 4 Diamonds.  It turned out that the Diamonds were 3-2 all along, so it didn't matter.

After reading the comments on this thread: http://bridgewinners.com/article/view/play-in-7nt-2/ it made me rethink how I played the hand. Specifically, what's the best percentage play?

 

 

The Heart-Diamond Squeeze
Try Diamonds first and then finesse in Hearts if necessary
