Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Peg Kaplan's lead problem: QJ QJ96 97 QJ542
Why would E pull to 6NT with that hand?
Play 7NT
I think cashing hearts first is superior. If west has the long heart the contract is likely via cashing Q then diamonds. There will be a double squeeze when east has the diamonds and some chance otherwise. When east has the heart length there is a chance of a triple ...
Robert Schachter's bidding problem: 4 AJ75 53 QJT743
Also I was wondering if declarer had four trumps might he call 5NT as a kind of last train bid or is that too obscure?
Robert Schachter's bidding problem: 4 AJ75 53 QJT743

Ace of clubs pitching the heart queen. King of heats followed by ace of spades and ace of hearts pitching a spade. Then club ruff followed by king and a small spade ruffing. Then club ruff followed by spade ruff.
Best Line of play in 5Diamond
They may be able to organize a spade ruff once you start playing trumps.
