Bridge Problem 3: Answer North 8763 A743 72 AQ3 West 5 QJ953 Q1054 1087 East KQJ1092 10 J96 J96 South A4 K86 AK83 K542 Dealer: EastVul: Neither E S W N 2 DBL P 3 P 4 P 5 P P P Opening lead: 5 South must win the A, take two top trumps in dummy, cash the AK and ruff a diamond, return to hand with the heart king, and draw the last round of trump (they break). Now a spade play puts East on lead with nothing but spades left (if East ducks the spade, declarer has 11 tricks). When East plays another spade, South discards a heart from hand. Now the next spade from East can be ruffed by South and West is squeezed, having to give declarer the game-going trick in one of the red suits. No other way of rectifying the count for the squeeze will work. Ducking a heart to West before trumps are drawn allows East to get a heart ruff. Ducking a heart to West after trumps are drawn -- which means after the diamond ruff -- allows West to cash the fourth diamond or play a heart, eliminating the last entry to dummy.
