Hi Bobby,

Taking T1 in dummy then leading the C10 to CA works too but what a trappy little hand. Only 4-0 trumps onside are a problem plus east having 1-1 in the majors assuming there is no first round major suit ruff.

Regards, Iain

Hi Iain,

Yes it is, but trappy is better than crappy, allowing the unblock in clubs to be necessary for success. While discussing card combinations can be testy, seeing them and thus living them
is helpful in applying them.

Causing both of us much thought, but well worth its knowledge, should it be necessary to win either money or an important tournament match.

Always thanks for both your humor and your contributions to our wonderful game and for the kindred souls who, like we, love it.
