4 NT Pass 6 NT All Pass LEAD:
South starts with 10 top tricks: two spades, three hearts, three diamonds and two clubs. Q Clubs
Declarer needs to win four spade tricks — but how?
Playing the king followed by the ace will work when the suit splits 3-3 or there is a queen-

doubleton or queen-doubleton. So this must be better.

club, but when the spade king drops West’s jack, declarer can claim. His odds are just over
61 percent — much better than the mere 39 percent for cashing the ace and king.
