Ted's Bridge World Problems

South to make 6
Opening Lead: K

Everyone knows about the dreaded ruff-sluff, but were you prepared for the unlikely ruff-ruff?  Twice?

The heart lead is ruffed low in both hands!  A spade is led, covering East's card.  Declarer now cashes the A-K, then plays ace and a club.

The forced heart return again is ruffed in both hands, keeping the lead in dummy.  Declarer now runs dummy's diamonds, discarding clubs.  Whenever east ruffs, south overruffs and draws the trumps.
