Double-Dummy
(You may look at all 4 hands, but you must assume best defense)

You are in 5 xx

Lead: Q

Make it.

Difficult





Perfect solutions were received from egon and olegd.
These are their OKB names. Egon's solution follows:




REVERSE DUMMY, using west's stiff heart king as an "entry"!

Play 3 times spade, pitching club ace and ruff 3rd.   Club to king, ruff club, diamond to king, ruff one more club.

Now you play a heart and let west keep it.   He now must play a black suit which you ruff in south and use heart ace as an entry to ruff last club.   Your diamond jack takes last trick, making 5!

Jørn

PS! Single dummy next?





Well done, Jørn!!!
