They open 1 on your right and you bid 5 at unfavorable. You get the Q lead. Plan the play

This hand reinforces an old adage. Take time before playing to trick one. Fight the urge to play low from dummyand ruff in hand. If you ruff in hand, South will eventually get on lead with a diamond trick andswitch to a heart through the King.Unlucky. Down 1.

Except that it is notunlucky. The contract should be made.

As you do not what South to get in, play the K at trick one, and when North plays the Ace,discard your losing diamond on it. Now unblock the A and use your trumpentries to ruff the diamonds out and discard two losing hearts to make 5.
