Opening lead - 2 of spades.
How would you proceed?
(N/S playing Precision)
North might have bid 2♣ over south's 1NT (18-19). If south ducks a spade, wins the second spade with the ace and trumps a spade in dummy, he can lead a club to the queen and duck a club. This line of play will lead to +110.
In NT, south held up the spade acuntil the third round, south unblocked the heart honors and led a club to the king and ace. East took the remaining spades and switched to the diamond king. When south ducked, east had only one safe exit, the jack of clubs. All souths who played this hand in 1NT went down one trick.
When south works on clubs, suppose he leads the queen on clubs from hi hand. East has no good play. If he wins the ace of clubs, the king becomes an entry to the good heart. Alternately, if east plays the jack of clubs instead, south leads a second club and ducks in dummy. East must win the ace and run the spade suit. However, south now had 8 tricks, a spade, four hearts, a diamond and two clubs for +120.
