Ted's Bridge World The Master Play

#9: Maui Wowie


You and your partner, needing to kill some time on Hawaii's famous isle, find yourselves at the Tuesday Evening duplicate in the beachfront (aren't they all?) community of Kihei.

Partner finds the good lead of the 9.  You play off three rounds of trumps as partner follows to the second one, then discards the 2.  Declarer wins in hand and runs the J, west playing the nine and dummy the three.

Plan the defense, and be forewarned: your communication skills will need to be state-of-the-art.
