Bridge problem: On the Way to Glory
Your hand sitting South
Dealer North. Love all.
(*) Landy (major two-suiter).
Lead: Ace of ♥.
First, South only wants to play in 5♦… Constrained and forced by the 5♥ bid, not doubled by the Opener, South tries his luck in 6♦ to avoid too big a swing. He will find out that the opponent has no way of beating this contract if he brings this deal to a successful conclusion.
All fine and Dandy but in real life east would almost certainly cash the Ace spades against a suited slam
Hmm… so if east cashes the ace, what does east lead? Looks like east has no winning options. The contract makes.
