North has 3 or 5 and 2 , you can deduct this from your conventions.

We play high-low odd and low-high even.

North has played high-low and low-high.

What must South do now? Let the J hold or overtake with Q and play the last ?

A beautiful defence from Sava

Trick1: 4 -3 - A - Q

What to continue?

10. It winns when North has A of K, singleton and 2 .

Partner plays on this board A and 2.

After that: taken with A, and now comes the -ruff, then the -ruff.

West has a 6-card .

If you let partner ruff a at trick 2 he never will be reached twice to give you the -ruff.

The plan of declare when the is ruffed at trick 2:

to the Q, cross to dummy with , finess J.

Because when South plays the third , North cannot ruff.

Board 13.

Declarer has a 6-card with Q J 9 x x x and a 3-card .

If declarer has a 3-card he plays in trick 2 from dummy.

Because he has only 1 . Then he can ruff himself twice in dummy.

Now he tries to get rid of his on the .

So if you took Q play .

If you don’t overtake partner takes A.

If you overtake Q and play declarer makes 5 +1.

Did you asked yourself why West never played it 3?

This was the card that was in the possession of North.

West had:

6 5

Q J 9 x x x
