Opening lead was H to the HA and a small club returned. Spade led toward the SK. It is counter-intuitive to fly spade ace, let alone unblock the CQ, but one of my juniors recognized the play of SA, club across and spade uppercut.

 

At the other table, on an identical auction and play, East missed the play of the SA but found the DJ on the second round of D. 

 

There is nothing more frustrating or rewarding than coaching junior bridge.
