I had mercifully forgotten that the first time I got to apply the "play the card you are known to have" declarer lead low to the AQX and won the Queen. I had started with Kxx.

They returned to hand, led another one, I played the King and pard dropped the now stiff Jack. Thanks for reminding me :blink:

On defence: declarer pulls off a strip and endplay and holds the equivalent of A109 opposite Kxx and your side has QJxxxx. You have to break the suit, holding any of Qxx Jxx or QJx.

From either of Qxx or Jxx you must lead the honour, and from QJx, you should randomize your honour lead.

Not sure if this holding fits the thread.

When holding J9xx with the opps holding say A8xx in dummy, to your right, and KQ10x in hand (akin to the B1/B2 positions in OP) if declarer leads the K from hand, and partner follows low, you play the 9 to create the losing option, as OP suggested. However, declarer should always go to dummy first, in another suit, and lead from dummy. You play the 9, and partner will occasionally play the stiff 10.

I thought I'd post that as a counter to what is now a very well-known falsecard...indeed, if as declarer you hold KQ7x opposite dummy's A8xx, and have a knowledgable rho, always start, if possible, with low from dummy.

Sometimes covering catters for both holdings


Yes, in my case covering could not have cost.
