Excellent Squeeze - by Peter Bircher
Excellent Squeeze - by Peter Bircher

This gem cropped up on BBO on the Sunshine Coast BBO on the 24 October 

After north had opened 1NT, he declared in 6NT (Yes, I know 6♣  is cold) 

Assuming East does not lead a give-away spade, making 12 tricks on a neutral club lead is quite a challenge

You knock out the ♣A but before cashing the clubs, which may be needed later for transport, you test diamonds. When east discards a spade on the 3rd diamond you cash the A-K of spades and run the clubs. Before the last club is cashed, with the lead in dummy, this is the 4-card ending:

               ♠  5

                          ♠  Q                         
  Q87                  J95             

              ♣  J

When declarer cashes the ♣J, west has to hold on to the  J, so throws a heart

Having done its job, north can now throw the  6

East is under pressure having to hold on to the ♠Q so also pitches a heart

The  10 now becomes trick 12
