A K 8 3 . 7 The bidding: SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST 1 . 2 . 2 . 3 . 4 . All pass Opening lead: 5 of . The vulnerability kept East- West from competing to five clubs. East won the opening club lead with the ace and shifted to a low trump. West captured South’s king with the ace and led the king of clubs, ruffed by South. Declarer, not knowing about the friendly 2- 2 trump split, was worried that he might have four losers — two spades, one club and one diamond. A 4- 3 split of the outstanding diamonds was more likely than a successful heart finesse, so he led a low diamond to the board’s queen, a diamond back to his ace and ruffed a low diamond with the last trump in dummy. Needing to get back to his hand, declarer cashed the ace of hearts and continued with a low heart. East falsecarded beautifully by playing the king of hearts on the second round of the suit, and declarer confidently ruffed with the 10 of spades. He was mortified when West over- ruffed with the jack and led his last diamond for East to ruff for the setting trick. Declarer’s goal on this deal had been 10 tricks, not 11, and he lost sight of that goal. South should have ignored the clever play of the king of hearts and ruffed with his queen of spades. He could then continue with the 10 of spades and the defenders would not be able to hurt him.
