"The worst play I have ever seen"
No recourse? I'll ruff and lead a spade honour. (A heart exit then ruff high when dummy plays diamonds also works.)
"The worst play I have ever seen"
Playing four rounds of clubs, East pitching diamonds, is ok. Declarer has to lose two trumps and a heart. But it doesn't work if East is 4612 with the same honours. That might be ruled out by the auction, depending on how passive East can be. Since East ought ...

Yesterday I held Qxx Ax Qx KQ10xxx at favourable vulnerability, on the auction 1D(from partner)-P-2C(not GF)-2H, 2S-3H-? As usual I didn't know what to do, so I doubled. LHO (behind screens) asked what double meant, and I told him "not take-out", which I thought a ...
