My esteemed opponent on OK Bridge showed why he had expert ratings when he wrapped up 12 tricks with little effort.

After winning the Club Ace he returned to hand with a top trump before ruffing his remaining Diamond in hand with the Jack. He now drew trumps and more trumps and in fact all the trumps and I sitting West had to eventually release a Spade. With me holding club control and 4 spades there was nothing I could do about it and I was well and truly squeezed as he proceeded to make two overtricks.

 

You can also view  watch the following movie to see how the hand pans out. (You need bridgvu.exe programme  and it is available free from   http://www.haroldschogger.com/videos.html or BridgeBase programme on your machine already to view it )
