Problem


The Auction:

 

West North East South
Pass Pass Pass 1
Pass 1♠ Pass 2♣
Pass 2♦! Pass 2♠
Pass 3NT Pass Pass

 

You are North and after your game-forcing bid of 2 – Fourth Suit Forcing – South replies with 2♠ indicating 3-card support for spades.

You declare 3 NT and East leads the J to dummy’s Ace. How are you going to make it?

This hand is tricky. It can be played in several ways: by either trying to trick the opponents not to take a trick that’s rightly theirs or by cleverly handling your longest suit & letting the opponents gain the lead at appropriate moments.
