Board 21 session 1 Tollemache qualifier Nov 2018.
Dealer E E-W vulnerable.
North showed the majors after West had opened one diamond and then drove to game with his powerful hand. East indicated that the contract might not make.
How do you play on the lead of a small club?
The double suggests that the trumps are not breaking and that you have three trumps to lose. The defenders are also threatening to take a club trick.
You need to find East with four spades along with his four trumps. Cash the ace of hearts and then play spades throwing your club losers, then ruff a club.
