A deal from the EBU Montenegro congress.
John Holland sitting North found the best lead for the defence, the four of clubs.
Declarer won with the ace and played three rounds of spades ditching a club while John ruffed with the seven of hearts. John now played a club to Raymond Semp's king and Raymond played a fourth spade, ruffed by declarer with the ten while John threw a diamond. Declarer now crossed to the king of diamonds and played a trump to the queen and king. Now another club from John was ruffed by Raymond with the jack and overruffed with the ace leaving John's nine as a winner. Nice defence and clearly declarer could have guessed better, but John was surprised to make three trump tricks from a holding of K97.
Thanks to John Holland for reporting this deal
