Harry Smith's Lockdown teams. In the other room, South made 5 but I found a losing line in 5 X. If declarer escapes a lead, there are lots of winning lines in this interesting contract but GIB reveals double-dummy surprizes. I ruffed a , ruffed a and cashed A. (Click Next to peruse the position).
A. Now I ruffed a , which led to defeat . To ensure success, from that position, declarer must play a red card.
B. If you don't cash A; but instead ruff another and another , then GIB says, you should exit with 6.

good problem, nige1. hand is excellent learning technique for crossruff. however, despite two aces west must always lead a trump against any contract bid like this. its not as easy a hand to play as it first looks. not sure why east is doubling :o
