Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
-590: assign the blame
Pass would not have been forcing.
Help settle an argument please
Partner wins K and continues the suit (he needs to have 9). Declarer has no entry for a squeeze.

I think declarer's hand is xxx KJxx AQ10x A10. We need to play a club to protect partner from being endplayed. If we play a diamond, declarer can rise ace, cross to a spade, and exit in clubs to get two diamond tricks or a ruff and discard.
I forgot. Is there any chance to recover?
Yes agreed. I think that once the alternative explanation is that partner missorted his hand, I should be allowed to check my memory for a system forget. But I can see merit in David's approach also - it makes for a clean game. Really I just wanted some clarity about ...

Permissible enquiry?
No. During the play the three active players seek to determine how the hidden cards are distributed between the two hidden hands. Declarer is entitled to any information the defenders had before they took their cards out of the board which might help them make that determination. What dummy thinks ...
Is this a guess?
Partner is very unlikely to have a singleton diamond at this vulnerability. And it can't be necessary to switch to hearts - if partner's got A he'll make it before declarer gets to discard clubs. So the choice is between a spade and A. A is necessary to ...
