Missing Honors With Jo Ann Lynds

East wins the opening lead with the  K and returns the  2 to the  Q in the West hand.  At trick three, West shifts to the ♠ 6.

1.    Which spade do you play from dummy?  Why?  You win the ♠ A.

2. How do you play the trump suit?

  1. As it appears that  East has underled the  A, he must be doing that in order to get a spade shift.  Therefore, it is pointless to play low from dummy.  You have a better chance to discarding your spade on dummy's fourth club.
  2. Play the  AK.  If the  Q does not fall, play clubs and hope you can discard your losing spade before the player with the  Q can ruff in.  Basically, you are hoping that the player with the  Q has at least three clubs.  Besides if East had the  Q, he might have dug up a bid over 1♠  with 12 high card points.

KEY LESSON POINTERS

  1. WHEN A DEFENSIVE PLAYER MAKES A DARING UNDERLEAD, ASSUME HAS HAS A GOOD REASON AND WORK OUT WHAT IT IS.
  2. CONSIDERING THE HEART SUIT IN ISOLATION, THE PROPER PLAY IS TO RUN THE  9.  HOWEVER, CONSIDERING THE WHOLE HAND, THE BEST PLAY IS TO CASH THE  AK AND THEN PLAY CLUBS.  A COMBINATION PLAY TO INCREASE YOUR CHANCES.
