This deal is from the Eastbourne pre-tournament pairs.
Raymond Semp (West) led the singleton club, won in dummy. Declarer now played a trump which John Holland won with the ace.
John now found the fine play of the ten of spades, covered with the king and won by Raymond with the ace.
Raymond now underlead his spade honours to give John the lead with the nine of spades and John was able to give Raymond a club ruff, the ace of diamonds now beat the contract by one. This neat cooperative defence earned John and Raymond a good score.
Only one pair found the making contract of four spades by East-West but they managed to go off.
Thanks to Raymond Semp for reporting this deal
