Hi Dear Mr Wolff
A wonderful hand and it would be absolute delight to execute it on table if at all. The play is essentially same on any other lead except a spade whence life would become simple for declarer. The combinations the cards offer, when perceived properly provide gratification to the mind which makes bridge truly magnificent game

Hi AV,

No doubt we share the same beauty (as do others, especially on site) and will no doubt continue, until, at the very least, older age (perhaps the late forties ????? for some) provide an alibi for sloth. Since I may barely reach that awkward period of my stay, I promise no letting down of my mediocrity.

What a pleasure it is to read your highly welcome views, complete with outstanding, carefully chosen, adjectives. Please, never change, even if ever one word of your posts gets incorrectly printed. You are a king’s and queen’s delight, not to mention an ACE.

Hi Bobby,

The last time I saw something this challenging was in Kelsey and Ottlik’s Adventures in Card Play. Mind you The hands there were single dummy!
