Play Problem 007
The James Bond Hand - by Ian Fleming

This is the famous hand that featured in Moonraker.  007 was playing a high stakes game of bridge with the evil Hugo Drax who had somewhat of a reputation for cheating. However on this occasion it was James Bond who 'fixed' the cards and then opened (!) 7 Clubs.  Drax doubled:  Bond redoubled.

You don't need to know the plot of this book and subsequent film to work out whether Bond's contract could be brought down.
