Give declarer Kxx KQxx Kx Kxxx . If we don't cash partners A right now, partner will be squeezed out of it. I follow instructions and return a low spade (from an honor).

One common situation is to have a nine card fit missing the queen. By law of empty spaces, one opponent has more known cards than the other. I know that at all the other tables they are going to bang down the AK. Nine never has replaced thinking.

So I can bang down the AK and get my average or I can finesse which will either win or not. If I get an average I can win the game on other boards. I guess I don't have any answers, just restating the problem.

Ace of spades. If the king is drops your contract is cold.
If the king is still out diamond to the queen and ruff a heart. Now two rounds of diamonds pitching the last heart.

If the spades break 3-0 ruffing a heart is giving up. So after diamond to the queen, run the queen of clubs and if you are still alive pitch your hearts on the ace of clubs and the third diamond.

Don't unblock the K. Maybe west continues diamonds.

They did seem to figure out the difficulty was the offshape 1NT opener.Alter the result to four hearts down two, the most likely result without the GCC illegal bid.

At the table I try 6NT over 6. She has to have a bunch of jacks to go with the K AK. Or the queen of clubs Maybe she has six hearts. I don't know about the singleton club.

On the diamond lead (unbid suit?) it is just about cold. Unblock the Q. First round finesse of the J. Unless it loses to the singleton queen, I have four hearts, four spades, three diamonds, and a club. If it does lose to the singleton queen, I have a diamond spade squeeze.

At the other table they were playing 6. Bidding not known so I gave mine. Thought it is an interesting play problem. And not sure which is the best contract for Imps.

Yes, still thinking about 6NT. Maybe the spades break horribly but I have 12 tricks without them.

Ron was the first and for a long time the only nationally known expert I played against. At a regular club game in Skokie. I got two zeros for my effort and no real story. I thought all the professional players were like him. My partner knew Ron from the Chicago Board of Trade. In Chicago a lot of the best bridge players trade options.
