Hi Everyone,

However, not said till now, the winning defensive line is far from obvious and would be highly
unlikely to be found unless someone can point out why not. It becomes very difficult for East to play his partner for specifically, the ace of hearts, but is it?

Would it have anything to do with South potentially bidding differently if holding the heart ace?

Once the dummy hits the table, clearly the heart ace isn’t there. If South held it, would South have likely bid something more than 2 D over North’s 2 C raise?

So therefore, East might assume West has the heart ace?
