Hard Luck Louie played this deal at the club’s Saturday night duplicate and ran into his usual bad luck. East won the opening spade lead with the ace and returned the 3 of spades, as a suit preference signal for clubs. West ruffed and duly shifted to the queen of clubs, king, ace, and East cashed the jack of clubs before reverting to spades. Louie did the best he could by ruffing with the queen of hearts and cashing the ace of hearts, felling the king. He now had a choice — pick up the trumps by finessing against West’s known 10, leaving him with a club loser, or ruff the last club and give up a trump trick. Down one either way, leaving Louie to once again rant about his poor luck. Lucky Larry played the same contract with the same opening lead. When East played his ace of spades, however, Larry smoothly played his king. East, convinced that West held the remaining spade, shifted to diamonds and Larry had a chance. He won the diamond in dummy and led a heart, capturing the king with his ace. A low trump to dummy’s nine was followed by the jack of trumps and a diamond back to his hand. Larry cashed the queen of hearts, drawing the last trump, then the king of diamonds, and exited with a spade to East’s eight. East tried to get off play by leading the queen of spades. Larry discarded a club rather than ruffing, and East had to give dummy either the 10 of spades or the king of clubs. Well done!
