I, North, had no idea if it could be slam, but the boards were srted out so you are suspicious.

After the -lead Truus draw trumps twice, played A K and to the A.

Next came J ruff and A, and down came Q from West.

Truus thought that West maybe was short in , and because West also was short in a -finess was useless. So she played to the K, and ended with 6 +1.

I started with Q, 3e from above and also a -signal.

Because South played 3 the first trick I missed 2, therefore South was encouraging.

After K and A I continued with . The declarer played 4 times , on which I discarded 2 . Then came 9 and I had no choice. A and West has two tricks in clubs.

A and East can score 4 -tricks.

It doesn’t help, 3NT +1 is the result.

This squeeze can allways be executed, unless you are in time with the -suit.

So the lead of a small , and after declarer plays persist again in playing gives you in time a -trick. So start from your length, normal isn’t it?

Then you beat the pairs who reached and made 4.

Greetings from Louis, the dutch player.
