Example text

West exits with a trump and shows out when you draw the last trump. These cards are left: You could discard a club on the Jack of diamonds, but since you would be ruffkg the second club in the long trump hand, this would not carry you much further. Your only hope (apart from the veiy slight chance of dropping a doubleton Q J of hearts) lies in a squeeze. Since West has turned up with a singleton diamond and only two trumps, there is a good chance of finding him with five hearts and the King of clubs.

South can count eleven tricks in top cards. A 3-3 break in diamonds would produce a twelfth;. failing that, it may be possible to squeeze East in the minor suits, because obviously West has six or seven spades. If South captures the spade lead with the Ace he loses the chance for a squeeze. He reaches this type of ending: The squeeze card, the V 7, turns out t o be a toothless wonder: East discards a club and South has no play for an extra trick. It should be plain that if South 'rectifies the count' by ducking at trick one, East cannot withstand the pressure.

The full deal was: + + You see that, after you have finessed J and discarded a spade on the King d clubs, you squeeze West, who must come down t o K J and V 10 in front of dummy's A 7 and Q 8? Y e a may have noted that the defence was not brilliant,. Consfder West's p~sitionafter V K has held the first trick. Partner's 4 is either a singleton (unlikely) or from Q 4 or Q 9 4. a trick t o the Queen, because with 9 4 East would have begun an echo). As the cards lie, East wins the second trick and switches t o aispade, destroying the entry for a squeeze.
