How do you play the spades?
Well, I was just responding to Chris' comment about finding he had three spades losers. The best way to avoid that is to start small to the nine and then lead back towards dummy. IMO, it's also the best way to play for one loser. If the seven appears ...
How do you play the spades?
I'm with David Corn. The intra-finesse is best. Start with low to the nine and then low to the eight. It holds the losers to two in all cases where West has four trumps.

Who should have used Key Card
My understanding is that they got to slam so he wants to use keycard to avoid it. [i]South... bid 5 spades asking about diamond control[/i] and North said yes.
Who should have used Key Card
Indeed.
Who should have used Key Card
To me, the primary meaning of 4 is that the hand belongs to us. As such, it announces that slam is a possibility and the opponents are not going to be allowed to play 5 undoubled. It does not promise a control. As such, I don't feel ...
