This was the decisive last hand, BBO Forums down by 3, Versace on your left, JEC on your right. Opening lead is the T to the J and ruffed, and you play the A, getting the Q, 8, and 2. What line do you take now?

I'm guessing if you do that, East will win, lead to the ace of spades, and get a spade ruff; in which case, you need to just play out your diamonds straight away.

What do you think West is doubling on? He presumably has Axxxx and T9xxx, at most J. Would he really double with just stiff Q? He must have KQ, so he thinks he has 2 sure tricks, and was hoping for at least one trick in partner's hand.

So a second club is the way to go.

Yeah, the two winning positions are if they have a singleton trump Q, or if they have KQ tight. If the former, you must play out your diamonds, using them as faux trump to get rid of the ruff potential, if the latter you must put another trump on the table. Looking at the opening lead, it looks like Versace was missing the AKQJ of hearts, and we know his spades aren't great either, so he might have just been doubling to warn against the 5 level (not sure if they are in a forcing pass situation), or because he has KQ tight and an ace. Restricted choice argues one way, the bidding the other. Partner did very well, I thought, to get it right; I'm pretty sure I would have talked myself into the losing line.

On the other hand, there's the possibility that it was a bluff, hoping to get declarer to go wrong. Since you're already in game, it risks at most 4 IMPs, less if the other table isn't in game (assuming you're not making an overtrick).
