The Swiss Teams Event at the Chester Congress at Deva Bridge Club this month featured a number of interesting slam deals.
On this deal South had an enormous hand and, although partner opened in his void suit, managed to reach the good heart slam. Ostensibly this is on bringing in the club suit for one loser, either the club finesse right or clubs breaking 3-3. West led a heart won by the Ace in dummy. Declarer took the club finesse which lost and West persevered with another heart. Now a club break is the main hope, but it costs nothing to run a lot of red suit winners, someone may throw a club or ...
After running all the hearts South played the top diamonds from hand and crossed to the diamond Ace. This was the end position, on the last diamond West was squeezed out of his club winner and the slam made. Very neat, but if West had ducked smoothly when declarer took the club finesse at trick two, declarer would surely have gone down by using the diamond ace entry to repeat the club finesse (the contract is makeable double dummy by a strip squeeze on West).
