Q1064

Trick1: A

Trick2: 4 to A

Trick3: ruff

What now in Trick4?

The solution is simple, I saw it directly after this board was played.

Trick4: ruff with A

Trick5: ruff.

You loose K and 2 -tricks.

If you play in trick 4 K you can discard a .

Now East can defend well.

At once a small is for West.

West can play 2, and now the 2nd -ruff is disappeared.

Not difficult. West opened, and North showed already A.

At our table East first played A, and the contract was made.

The solution of the first board.

Q86

If 7 in dummy is played, which does South play?

If 9 in dummy is played, which does South play?

It’s pairs, you must prevent overtricks as opponent.

If you play Q the K wins the trick.

Declarer can play to the J.

He makes 5 -, 3, 1-, 2-tricks is 3NT +2.

If you play after 7 the 8 declarer only makes 1 -trick.

Also after 9 playing 8 (high is encouriging).

Also when you agreed to play distribution you can play after 9 the 6.

Low high is odd.

Conclusion: 3rd man high is not always the correct play.

I think the assumption North has a picture, and East also (bidding 3NT) you can make this up. East must have something like:

A 10 or A 5 or A 4 or A 3 or K 10 or K 5 or K 4 or K 3

Wit hall these holdings playing Q is losing bridge.

Greeting from Louis, the Dutch player.
