Franco! As you mention above, it is better to eliminate the possibility of playing for the red suits to break: QJ973.....10862 Q10..........J642 6543........- A9............KJ874 I have given South only 102 of clubs - the 10 is important, but the 9 is not needed. Or rather - South's ...
Matchpoint Defense Problem
If declarer has Axx 9x QJTx AKQx, the 10 won't necessarily defeat the contract. Declarer can win the J and take his 3 diamond tricks. What do you discard on the last diamond? A much more likely hand for declarer is Axx 9x QJTxx AKx. Yes, partner's 9 ...
Enlist the Aid
♠AJxxx ♥xx ♦Qxx ♣Qxx would presumably have been a 2 call instead of a double. But give him a minorsuit Jack instead of a small spade and Kit's point is still valid.
Is the defence clear?
A spade costs (and a trump gains) if it costs you a trump trick to ruff a diamond in front of dummy. Give declarer Kx AKJ8762 xxx x "Only" two down if you switch to a spade or continue diamonds, but 3 down if you switch to a trump. And ...
Is the defence clear?
But the danger hand is not QJx, but Q10x. Fairly automatic to unblock the 10 now, just in case. Not to mention that declarer could have Q54.
Is the defence clear?
It is completely clear that partner has the A. Without this card, he would have known that any diamond loser will go away on the clubs, so would not have switched to a trump. Thus, South switched to a club (or continued diamonds) at the table and collected +100 when ...
Doubt over Subsequent attack
“Upside down original count” equals “standard current count” At trick 2, yes. But not necessarily at trick 3. With standard count, you just look at what you have left and lead back the same card you would have led at trick 1 if this was your original holding. With Upside-down ...
Flawed Multi
But it makes no difference whether West rises with both honors or not. You need another entry to dummy to play clubs to your best advantage, and you have a heart entry (if you want) no matter what West does.
Flawed Multi
It seems to me that declarer blundered by not overtaking J in dummy. Maybe he was convinced that East had the A and was going to cash the spades? Overtaking the J lets declarer play clubs twice from dummy without risk, and there are still enough entries to set up ...
Is There Any Special Name for This?
For this line to succeed, you needed hearts 3-3. But since you have the J, you should also make it if West has less than 3 hearts. AK, K, KQJ, . This line has the added advantage that West might now mistakenly play a diamond, sparing you the club guess.
