GIB executed this endplay in the Daylong yesterday:



In a contract, South is on lead and wins 5 of the 6 remaining tricks.

Just a regular squeeze-endplay (strip squeeze) on East? Either he gives up his club or gets endplayed with the bare HA to lead from CQ.

Looks like a pretty standard trump squeeze on East. Lead a trump and discard 7 from dummy. If East pitches a club, AK sets up the jack. If East pitches a heart, a heart is ducked, and a heart ruff sets up the king and you have a club entry to cash the heart.

Any reason to play this way and not just lead up to the K?

I agree with both ahydra and johnu that it's either a strip squeeze, or a trump squeeze depending on how you play.

Two for the price of one: now that's a Bargain Squeeze :)

Agree with Ahydra: simple squeeze strip.
Cash 2 s, throwing 2 s
If RHO discards A, then cash K.
If RHO discards a , then cash 3 s.
Otherwise play a to end-play RHO.

The trump squeeze works with fewer high-cards but requires more play

Yes, at the table East had over called 1NT,
and I think was marked with 7+hcp at this point.
