Thursday 04/26 Board 10 Bridge Studio

I'm back! On this hand South leads the A and switches to the K♠ .  Looking at dummy, sooo many trump 6 should be easy.  But wait... there is too much balance and only one spade discard available in dummy.  How can you prevent a second loser in spades?

Take a breath.... remember the fundamental conditions for a squeeze; rectify count (you have 11 winners and have lost one trick, check!); identify a threat card( J♠ , only the outstanding Q♠ is higher, probably held by south), have a suit of sufficeint length that one opponent must protect their length (in this case Clubs). Time to execute.  Win the A♠ and run all the hearts ending in dummy. After the last heart is played dummy will hold ♠ J7 ♣ 86; declarer will hold ♣ AKQ4.  South unfortunately must keep 5 cards, Q♠ and foyr clubs to the J.  Forced to discard a club, south allows the 4♣ to be declarers 12th trick.
