Hand of the week

How do you bid these hands?

How do you play in 5D by South?

2S is CRO showing two suits of the same colour ie in this case Hearts and Diamonds.

5D by South is based on the probability of a crossruff situation - South is void in Hearts which partner has promised, North looks likely to be void in spades as West has bid them and East has supported.

Play goes:

  1. KS lead ruffed in dummy.
  2. AH and KH, South discards 2 clubs.
  3. AC on which West plays the KC, looks like a singleton.
  4. Small Heart ruffed by S.
  5. 10 and 9 Hearts in North are now masters.  South now has 5 tricks and has not played trumps yet.
  6. AD and KD, on which East shows out so QD in West's hand is a master.
  7. South leads a spade to ruff in dummy and then leads the master Hearts and discards spades.
  8. The last 4 cards are:

  North                    South               West

♠ -                          98                    Q 10 7

97                         -                       -

-                        10 5                    Q

♣ 6 3                    -                        -

On the 9H lead  South discards a spade and West ruffs and then cashes their master spade. South wins 2 more tricks making the contract.

However at trick 6 instead of playing A and KD South should play another spade to ruff in dummy before drawing one round of diamonds and then ruffing another spade and then playing on hearts. This line of play makes 12 tricks. See Monday 23rd October Board 24 and try Play it again.
