Problem


The Auction:

 

West North East South
  1 Pass 1♠
1NT!* 2 Pass 4NT
Pass 5 Pass 6♠
all pass      

 

* Sandwich 1NT

North opens the auction with 1, South responds with 1♠. West chimes in a Sandwich 1NT, this overcall shows a distribution of 5-5 in the two unbid suits – diamonds and clubs. South asks for aces. North`s answer – 5 shows two aces. South declares 6♠.

We invite you to take the South seat – can you take 12 tricks?

West leads the ♣5.

Contract: 6♠S

Vulnerable: North/South

The most common reason to postpone pulling trumps is the need to ruff losers in dummy.
