How to play 6!H and win or lose the Bermuda Bowl
I wasn't aware of this "exchange" between South and West suggesting but not guaranteeing the K in East. The last point about the 10 holding the trick when the RHO owns KJ5 is a valid one, and it definitely switches the odds in favor of the ten from hand ...
How to play 6!H and win or lose the Bermuda Bowl
David, as I've explained above, against my defensive scheme both declarer lines are equally good regardless of the size of the card contributed by the RHO. That is the very purpose of the proposed scheme. Over the !K5 from the RHO the ten would be best against a defender ...

He did bid and lead clubs.

Really brave would be the 9 from K95 when the partner could hold JT. But this is not a part of the scheme proposed above. Note, that this scheme is waterproof - it does hold the success rate of the declarer to his due, whatever he does.

Michael & David, it is being said that the defenders should often randomize. The purpose is to make declarer indifferent between his two best lines, thereby minimizing his maximal available rate of success. The prime example of this principle is the ten from ten-small one time in six, behind the declarer ...

Konrad,the opening lead was the 9. Michal, the double must have indicated a two-suiter, but was explained on BBO as showing clubs only.
How to play 6!H and win or lose the Bermuda Bowl
I did. It matters not what is at all possible, but rather what declarer wishes to take into account. By my reckoning, false-carding of the Q doesn't merit consideration. Hence, declarer is planning to finesse the Q over East which requires a 3-2 split of the trumps. More interesting ...

Indeed, this consideration could have swayed Simon towards 10 if after two grueling weeks he no perseverance left to study all ins and outs of the situation.
Michael Rosenberg on a Grand Slam
Agree. In fact it is a very complicated setting, both in theory and in practice. To begin with, going 2 or 3 down makes no difference against 6 at the other table. Thus, whenever the declarer holding Q9x is planning to play the queen he can as well postpone ...
