April 2018 – Lead Out Of Turn

(Porthcawl Bridge Club)

Contract 4 by South

West leadsJ, and East covers dummy’s king with her ace. Declarer ruffs with 2. East doesn’t see the ruff (she thought the 2 was the 2), and now plays the Q. South knowing that he has won the previous trick, and also not noticing East’s Q, now plays K.
