6S DD-problem
I think you're getting dummy and declarer mixed up in there somewhere.
6S DD-problem
Why not win the lead in hand and play ace and a heart? South has to play another trump, else there are twelve tricks on a cross-ruff. Cash K, ruff a heart. Now AQ, throwing small clubs from dummy, club to the ace and ruff another heart. Now dummy is ...

3 merely shows spade length in a game hand. what would you bid with QJ109xx x xx AKxx?
A field day for the heat
