The hand this week can be quite easy as long as you count points, particularly the first two tricks. 

West decides to lead the Club 10 and partner wins first trick and plays back the Jack.

Now the hand is an Open book.

East CANNOT have any more points, having shown 5 points by trick two otherwise he would have replied to partnerís Opening bid. After the diamond switch take the trick with dummyís King and play Ace of trumps. You get a nice surprise when Westís King falls singleton.

Play the other top Diamond and ruff a Diamond. Now you can resume drawing trumps. After drawing trumps concede a Spade to West

You will make 1 Spade, 6 Hearts, 2 Diamonds and 1 Diamond ruff in dummy, the short hand.

 

 

You can also watch the following movie to see how the hand pans out. To view this programme you will need  to download htttp://www.haroldschogger.com/bridgevu.setup
