Join Bridge Winners
Helping an Old Mentor

Bridgewinners I'm calling on you to help me find this problem. My old bridge mentor, Arthur Moore, a long time Ohio Valley player and now NC Triangle player, taught me a lot of bridge but recently found out his playing days are likely done with because of a bad back. He sent me this double dummy problem and would like the source. 

He says about the problem:

"Here is my favorite double double dummy problem which I first encountered in 1962. I was playing bridge in the dorm, and when I returned the hands had been dealt; I might say set up. I wanted to redeal, but the other three, amid smirks and giggles, would not allow it. Partner and I bid to 6h on 1h 4NT 5h 6h.

The opening lead was the Q of diamonds, and everyone told me I would never make it. I played the first two tricks correctly. I was then warned about the trump break and coached through the hand until I made it. I do not know what book it came from, but it is a real hand from top level competition that was made at the table. If anyone were to inform me in what book it could found, I would forever be indebted to that person."

Here is it! I would also be indebeted if anybody knows where it came from!
