Here, North, with all of his points in the rounded suits and that useful-looking spade
singleton, should have no qualms in jumping to four hearts, despite holding only six
West leads the spade ace, then shifts to a trump. South can win in his hand, ruff a
spade on the board, and, if greedy, cross to his hand with a club, ruff another spade,
play a club to his hand, draw trumps, and claim an overtrick.
It is tough, but East-West would do well to sacrifice in four spades doubled, which
costs only 500.
