Minor point, but if the defense a) shifts toa H at trick 2, or b) starts with 3 rounds of S, or c) leads anything but a S at trick 1, then S must draw only 2 rounds of trump, being careful to win one round in hand and one in dummy, and then play CA, finesse CJ, ruff a C, and finally draw the last trump winning in dummy.

Hi David,

Yes, of course, with you being what you have always been, a superior natural bridge technician, making sure you will always, (hand willing), wind up in the right hand, at the right time, in order to bear the fruits of your effort.

Thanks for reminding all of us, that without that necessary talent, either natural or learned, (you will emulate the beautiful lady of being all dressed up, but nowhere to go). In bridge expressly, set!
