Problem


The Auction:

 

West North East South
Pass Pass Pass 1NT
2♣!* 2NT!** Pass 3♣
Pass 3♠ Dbl 3NT
Pass Pass Dbl all pass

 

* Cappeletti

** Lebensohl

You open the auction with 1 NT after West, North and East have passed. West intervenes with 2♣ (Cappelletti 2♣ shows a one-suited hand, usually 6+ cards). North answers with 2NT (Lebensohl 2NT, which forces the opener to bid 3♣). East passes, you bid 3♣ and North switches to 3♠. East doubles. You declare 3NT. East doubles.

West leads the ♣7. Plan your play.
