WHEN DUMMY’S SUIT LOOKS THREATENING NORTH

In bridge, if you have to change suits, do it rapidly. In today’s deal, South is in five hearts. Q 10 9 5 3 2 SOUTH KJ86
West leads the spade king. South wins with his ace, draws trumps in two rounds (West A65
discarding a low club), and returns a spade. After East completes a high-low with his KQ9843
doubleton, what should West do? AJ
In the bidding, North’s jump to three hearts was pre-emptive. With game-invitational

favor. Then, when South bid game, West sacrificed in five clubs. Since South did not The Bidding:

At trick five, West was not sure what to do. If East had the club ace, leading that suit 5 Hearts Pass Pass Pass K Spades
would have likely resulted in down two. Here, though, it would have cost the contract.
Instead, West shifted to a diamond, which gave the defenders two spades and one
diamond. But if it turned out that South had the ace-queen of diamonds, when West got
in with his spade queen, he would have tried a club. Assuming East had the ace, this
defense would have cost only an undertrick.
