Wednesday 08/16 Board 1 Bridge Studio

As south would you bid 2♣ , then 3♠ smolen, planning to pass 3NT if bid?

At every table but one, declarer lost the obvious two aces making five.  At the last table after receiving the Q♣ lead, declarer saw a chance to make six...and took it.  What would you do?

After winning the Q♣ lead with the A♣ ,  the J was led and allowed to win. With only the 10 to worry about declarer set out to make dummy's diamond go away.  K♣ and another club ruffed in dummy.  When clubs broke 3-3 there was no more risk.  A spade to the A♠ , and a fourth club led planning to discard the diamond.  When east ruffed in with the 10 dummy overruffed with the K .  Now a spade to the J♠ and the fifth club.  East helplessly played the A and watched as dummy's lone diamond was discarded.  Making six, and all the match points.  This time the risk was worth itwink
