After seven tricks I had a complete count of the hand. Click Next button to see the first seven tricks.

Now there are three different successful lines!

1. The squeeze --- Play Q and East is squeezed in the black suits on the forced diamond return.

2. The strip squeeze --- Cash A and then endplay East in spades for a club play.

3. The endplay --- Duck a spade and East has to open up spades or give dummy two club tricks.
