Social bridge, nothing at stake but bragging rights. Toughest form of the game.

1 was 4+ cards, maybe canape, strong club and strong no trump method. 3 may have been foolhardy.

Spade to the ace, three rounds of clubs. Two rounds of hearts, two more rounds of clubs. This was the second stepping-stone squeeze I have operated at the table, but until now I had never seen one in fact or fiction where the victim had to yield three tricks after the squeeze.

In what vaguely counter-intuitive way could East have done better?
