Bridge Deal of the Week (January 31 2018)Click here for Archives / Discussion Boards
South started with 1♥. West passed. North responded 2♣. South jumped to 3♥ (at least 6 hearts and +14 HCP). North, who had a 2-card support for South`s hearts and 15 HCP asked for aces with 4NT. South responded 5♠ – 2 keycards and the trump queen. North declared 6♥.
West led the ♦A and won the first trick (trick 1).
Despite the great 9-card trump suit and 29 HCP this small slam is not chiseled in stone. The declarer misses the ♦A and has a loser in spades. What tactics would you suggest to the declarer to win 12 tricks?
Contract: 6♥ by South

The declarer must force the opponents to discard enough times to promote one of his losers into a winner.
