That applies to bridge. The trick is in setting the level of your contract neither too A J 10 7

opponents’ cards lie. KJ9
In this week’s deal, how should the auction go after South opens one club, and North
responds one heart? If South gets to the elevated level of six spades, how should he Dealer: South; Vulnerable: East-West
play after West starts with the ace and another diamond?
South, despite his heart singleton, should rebid two spades. With 19 high-card points,
he must force. Then North should either raise to three spades (which is stronger than SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST OPENING

quietly rebids three clubs.) Over three spades, South should control-bid four clubs, ?? LEAD:
North would control-bid four hearts, and the contract would be either six spades or (if A Diamonds
North-South use Roman Key Card Blackwood) perhaps only five spades when South
learns a key card (an ace or the spade king) and the spade queen are missing.
In six spades, South should not be influenced by West’s lead into thinking that he has
the spade queen. West’s lead is normal after any sensible sequence. The percentage
play is to finesse spades through East because declarer can pick up queen-fourth. Win
trick two with the diamond queen, cash the spade king, play a spade to the jack and,
assuming the finesse wins and West follows suit, draw the last trump and claim.
