Killing lead?

He might drop the K. Picture the play. Lets say A lead, now a switch to a low dummy rises with the Q North plays the A ruffed trumps pulled a led towards the dummy. So far north has turned up with just 4HCP.

After the A a switch to a might put it to east.

Board 11 a further brilliancy :) Someone come to the rescue of the bidding where they reached 5X.

RHO preferred spades after LHO showed 5+ hearts.

That was weird alright.

Well the opponent has forced you above 3NT. Contract 4NT? lead X Dummy comes down with Q10 and you hold A9. As weird a lead as it is. Though I think I got the pips wrong originally. It was Q9 opposite A10.

So the bidding then would be: 2 3 P 4;; 4 5 5 you?

4 is the lowest of three? That means West has gone to the LS with 2 small s.

4 is the start of a mild echo showing 4? Which means west has bid the LS with a singleton or worse three small.

4 is a singleton? which means that the play of the 2 from 23xx is the right play so as to put me on the spot.

Case 1: I need to switch to the A.

Case 2: I need to switch to the A.

Case 3: I need to carry on with a .

Put pressure on the opponents to decide at a higher level. Also my hand had decent 14 HCP.

There wasn't any need to ask such, none present were that sophisticated in bidding systems. 6 was a shot in the dark or a need for an absolute top for them at that stage to come into the reckoning for a good finish.

HINT: After the play my partner was cool about the screw up saying can't blame you.

If I had got this right we would have been 2nd.

At the table I was too involved in banter(with the dummy and the declarer) and didn't even put a thought to my next play. And screwed it up.

Caveat: Dummy asked me as I tabled the A that can I,dummy ask for aces holding just one?

Caveat 2:I made a comment when west bid 6 that seems you have an ace and a void. He just smiled smugly and crossed his hands over his chest.

If west has a void that marks my partner with QJ10xxxx and some points besides.

What I “like” so far is, no one has castigated east for trotting out the old faithful, RCKB.
