hand of the day

everton

Hi all,
 
Zhao Guoping, aka Zapple, is a Singapore bridge expert and an interesting bridge theorist, so
I was pleased when he accepted my invitation to play in Monday's abalucy tournament.  We played well throughout but had the misfortune to have our table opponents achieve some excellent results, including bidding two unbeatable slams, against us, and finished 14th of 20 pairs.
 
Zapple played this hand beautifully to hold it to down 1, a reasonable result when the
opponents can take 9 or 10 tricks in spades.

My double was a responsive double saying I have the values to compete, but no clearcut bid.
Zapple bid his 5 card heart suit and that ended the auction.  With the heart and club honours
badly placed the contract is doomed.  In fact declarer is at risk of going down 2, losing
a spade, two trumps and three clubs.  Zapple played a classic strip & end play. 
 
The opening lead was a spade to the ace.  North continued the suit & Zapple ruffed.  He played
a diamond to dummy to try the heart finesse which lost to the Q.  Another spade was ruffed
with the jack (note the preservation of a dummy entry by ruffing high).
 
This was the position now:
 
    North
    S QT6       
    H A           
    D 5           
    C Q65          
 
  West    East (Zapple)
  S                  S             
  H 92              H K8        
  D K94            D QJ8         
  C T93            C K84          
 
    South
    S           
    H 75          
    D T7          
    C AJ72         
 
Zapple played the trump king to North's ace.  A spade lead would give a ruff and sluff, a club
lead would set up a club trick for declarer, so North switched to a diamond.  But Zapple had a
sure counter.  From the bidding and play he had a complete count of the hand.  He drew the last
trump, and ran the diamonds stripping the last cards in that suit.  North discarded all his
spades confirming the count in that suit.  Now Zapple ran the club 10 to South's jack,
endplaying him in clubs for his 8th trick.
