Wait and See
Perhaps the correct rule with a tramp stack would be to play a forcing game if you hold a side suit of your own that can be established?
RATE YOUR MIND PAL
Can S make 4 if W underleads A and E returns ?
Another day another brain teaser
Run 5 Hearts pitching Diamond: (1) If W keeps bare K, establish Spade trick (2) If W keeps bare J, play 6th Heart, pitch Spade, cross to A, and endplay W in whatever black suit he discarded from (3) If W keeps bare Q, play 6th Heart and discard Club ...

Joe Roll's bidding problem: --- QJTx x KJ98xxxx
