Declarer play problem
Yes, they can lead three rounds of diamonds (after KC to AC). But you are far from dead. After ruffing the third round in Dummy, you can revert to the H finesse: H to J, AH, TH ruffed in Dummy (9S), JS, club to hand, draw trump and KH: 6 ...
Declarer play problem
Also works with Jx in clubs. Note that you have to lead a club at trick two so that you can cash the second round of clubs before two more rounds of trumps ending in Dummy. If you play anotherhigh spade at trick two, they can win the AC and ...
Declarer play problem
Oh, IMPs, neither.
Did someone ask for more Declarer play problems?
Sorry. Scoring is Imps. As to leading a D to the K, well, is that play much better than 50%? Can’t we do better? And, while I am back, I post a play problem and readers start critiquing the bidding. Are we all so devoted to carping? The bididng ...

Where is that "very easy" 6NT post?
Peter Fredin is a super-nova, maybe a Type II super-nova. Best to be at another table when he explodes. It seems he has a very simple approach to the 6NT hand that makes stripping South to the AS for a throwin with Jxxx in Hs obvious. I am eager to ...
Jumping the Gun (WBF World Electronic Bridge Championship)
The chess world, yes, FIDE, is currently holding an online world championship event, Fischer-random speed chess. They had 9 matches between 8 players last weekend to select two players for a finals in Oslo. With serious prize money and well-known GMs. These matches lasted about four hours apiece and all ...
Warning: this is a hard play problem.
Yes, winning the JH and leading low towards the 9 again is fine and simpler. Thanks to all for the help. I will try to make the next one really hard. And, yes, any lead except a spade defeats 3NT.
