A Simple Question
Routine is simple: In rapid succession, ace of spades, king of clubs, queen of spades. If that doesn't work, I point to the door shouting "Look who's here!" as I switch the spade queen to a club. Might not establish a revoke, but exposed cards do just as ...

Ace or shortness. Partner assumes ace, so may bid 3NT without a stopper, but opener bids further with shortness.

Assuming an automatic honor from JTx, it's an exact tossup when vacant spaces are 7:11. Ratios less than 7/11 favor the finesse; greater favor the drop. This can be verified at:

At IMPs would be clear to win SA, HK and lead a spade (cold with spades 3-2 or four on your right) which seems fine at BAM as well.
Another huge finish for 15-year old Finn Kolesnik
Besides Finn's keen bridge, I am impressed by his adult manner, respectfulness -- and well-dressed too. Great upbringing!

I'd even chip in the 8 cents if you'd just learn to spell it.
One-Notrump Opening v Three of a Minor Rebid v Two-Notrump Rebid
Option 2 resembles bridge. Unfortunately some players do not.
