Everybody,

Here's a deal (rotated) that occurred at a sectional tournament this past weekend.


Dealer: East
Vulnerable: North-South

North
S: K 10 9 5 4
H: Q 10 5 3 2
D: A 9
C: 9

West East
S: A 8 3 2 S: Q 7 6
H: K 4 H: 6
D: J 4 D: K Q 8 6 5
C: K J 7 6 4 C: Q 8 3 2

South
S: J
H: A J 9 8 7
D: 10 7 3 2
C: A 10 5


The auction at my table:

     North    East      South     West
Pass 1H 2C
Pass 4H Pass Pass
Pass


West, of course, led the 6 of clubs, on which East produced the queen over Dummy's 9 and South won with the Ace. Now, the ruse: South continued with the seven of hearts (!), so West naturally assumed, from the bidding and the play, that East must have a singleton ace. Alas, the seven held the second trick. Declarer then led the Ace, felling a very shocked West's king. The defense subsequently scored the ace of spades and a diamond, but +650 garnered 17.76 of 23 available match points.

Norm.
