Named after my friend and compatriot David Liu who once found himself in a 6 contract, trivially making except on a 5-0 trump split.  On the inevitable 5-0 split, his opponent has to underruff along the way.  Otherwise (s)he ruffs its partner's trick at trick 11 and has to lead into Dave's tenace.

Playing in a club pair with a new partner, the bidding gets a little out of hand.  A lot out of hand.  Here I am 4. They start with two heart trick north pitching an odd/even 4.  Then a trump to the 9-Queen.  I play club to the king winning.  A learning about the trump break.  On the J next north pitches another club not best while  I ruff it.  Play off four rounds of diamonds.  On the club next, north has to ruff her partner's ace and then lead into my K10.

 

What do all y'all think of me posting hands in its natural environment errors and all?  Should I take it to the intermediate folder?  The defensive error is in spirit with the original Liu coup which needed a defensive error as well.
