Hi Bobby,

Credit is due on the column hand to West for finding that club switch. Declarer’s life is very easy otherwise. I suppose East gets half a brownie point for withholding the CQ too. TOCM would give West one more diamond and SJ98 (or maybe 98x if declarer takes the S finesse) o boot when ruffing diamonds would be an easy way home

Hi Iain,

As you surmised, strength vs. strength should be the theme of this battle. And since TOCM was definitely not invited, especially for the declarer, everything came up roses.

Bridge at a high level, always a good image, survives.

Always thanks for your two cents worth, inflation raising that contribution considerably.
