Commenting on your “aside” and your column from Monday last week, ruff-sluffs can be appropriate when not only declarer can ruff or sluff but when partner is also void in the suit led and so may be able to make a critical ruff or sluff.

Hi David,

Of course, right you are, and, at least to some, even a more perceptive play to make, when one’s visualization allows partner to do it for you.

Although, at your very high level, that fact would be quite natural and easily recognized, but not so for most likely (99+%), but, in any case, we should have found a way to do so.

However, much thanks to you for pointing it out.
