Defensive Problem
I cash the third heart just in case my partner found the killing lead with two hearts and AQ of diamonds. If partners discards, I will follow his signal. If not, I will probably switch to spades, playing him for the K of spades and Ace of diamonds.
Long Beach
A of d, d ruffed, K of spades, A of clubs throwing a diamond, K,A of hearts and heart ruffed.
Peeking
Yes, what is the problem if all players agree?

Redouble Trouble: Current Standard Expert Practice?

Yet Another Look
Thank you for your research and analysis!
Do you consider this pass forcing?
yes unless white vs red
What do you return?
I like Patrick Laborde's response. As the count of the suit is evident from the bidding, coming back the 5 of spades, in general principles will help partner to find the correct switch (in our case club from Qxx)
