Problem


The Auction:

West North East South
  1♠ Pass 1NT
Pass 2NT Pass 4
Pass 4NT Pass 5
all pass      

North opens the auction with 1♠, South responds with 1NT. North’s rebid – 2NT shows 17-19 HCP, so it is not surprising that South bids 4. What is a bit surprising is that North asks for the aces next with 4NT. South answers 5, which becomes the final declaration.

We invite you to take the seat of South. Can you see a road to 11 tricks? West leads the ♣Q.

Contract: 5S

Vulnerable: none
