Saturday's common game.
By the way I agree. I thought the line was best because you could decide what to do later on in the hand -- but also because anyone can take a finesse but a trump squeeze is not an everyday occurrence. (My impression that non-simultaneous double squeezes tend to work in ...
How does one go about this?
cashing the A and then A before playing a trump rates to remove the exit card from a player with a singleton club. Opening leader can still easily have a singleton club and not lead it.
Saturday's common game.
Not surprisingly, Michael Rosenberg has it exactly right. Note that RHO will (because he is human) pitch a small spade from his five-card suit on the fourth trump, and if he had 4-1-5-3 he would doubtless discard a diamond on the fourth club. Either way you have an inferential count ...

Deportment -- who's at fault?
Or she might just need more help and you are too arrogant or supercilious to help her.
Deportment -- who's at fault?
Agree with the comments upthread. I often do the same thing and realize indirectly I'm confusing my opponents unnecessarily.
Wednesday’s common game 2
Strongly disagree with Kieran re his point two. With D+S and a hand planning to move over a weak action from partner I like 1-1-1-1NT-2NT or 1-1-1-2-3 or even 1-1-1-2-2NT I know that isn't winning tactics ...
