This hand came from a recent Gold Cup Match and both teams rose to the challenge of getting their 10 tricks and its all a matter of counting winners and losers properly.

Initially you have 5 Spade winners, 2 Heart  winners and 1 Diamond winner totalling 8.

You are looking at least one loser in each suit except trumps. What you mustnít do is create an extra loser in Diamonds . After the pre-empt the ®7 is looking very much like a singleton.

Both declarers went up with the Ace at trick 1, drew trumps and went after the Hearts. When the Hearts broke 3:3 the thirteenth Heart provided a place to dump a Diamond loser from hand.

Declarer made 5 trumps, 2 Hearts 1 Diamond 1 established Diamond (only as the suit didnít break well) and the thirteenth Heart.

 

 

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