KO, imps, 32 boards

2 game forcing

2nt shows 6 spades, not three hearts

3nt non-serious

LHO leads the jack of hearts. RHO will discard a diamond. 

Plan the play. 

 

I admit that this problem didn't actually come up at the table, because 6 wasn't doubled, and the other table bid to 7. (As the other team was a long way behind in the match this wasn't a silly contract, but the 6-0 trump split rather terminated interest in the play.)

 

Mild point of side interest - in this 8-board set, there had already been two grand slams, one was flat and one with 13 top tricks did generate a swing.
