Alje's Friday Feedback

Every East/West played in some number of hearts on Board 23 Friday. Of those, 12 pairs collected 11 tricks or more even though North/South were entitled to 3 defensive tricks. So what went wrong (or, if you were sitting East/West, what went right?). On 14 occasions, East played the hand, putting North on lead. Against a suit contract, the lead of the ♠Q seems right (against a NT contract you would lead a 4th best spade or a diamond but vs. a suit contract it’s best to lead the queen, hoping to set up a trick before declarer can get rid any losers in the suit). In fact, most did lead the ♠Q, presumably covered by the ♠K and won by South’s ♠A. That immediately puts South at the crossroads. Looking a dummy’s club suit, she should realize that even if partner holds the club king, it can be finessed, providing a parking spot for all of declarer’s losers. It would be simple to return a spade, let partner win his jack and then decide how to proceed. But what if declarer has a stiff spade? She will ruff, pull trumps and finesse the ♣K if she has to, discarding her diamond losers. Surely it’s best to cash the ♦A first. If declarer has the ♦K, she was always winning it so nothing is lost. And you can always shift back to a spade if partner signals that he doesn’t like diamonds. Here, you are rewarded for your thoughtfulness when partner signals (by playing the ♦6), that he likes diamonds. You play a second diamond, partner wins the ♦K and you collect 15 matchpoints. Try to cash a second spade first and you get only 4.
