Bid and Play 6NT

Updated: Oct 2, 2022

1. West is the dealer. Bid the E/W hands.

2. West is the declarer in 6NT with a heart lead:

2.1 Which suit should West play in trick 2? Why?

2.2 How should West handle diamonds? What can go wrong? How can West solve the problem?

Gino's suggestion and explanation

1. 2NT-6NT

2.1 Play Spades to force out the SA.

2.2 Declarer must play 1 or 2 top diamonds:

  • If both opponents follow, the jack will drop.

  • If North does not follow, South holds the Jxxx(x). Enter East to make a marked finesse against South's DJ.

  • If South does not follow, the contract is doomed. Do not worry about it. You bid well but caught an unlucky break.

The whole deal:
