Acol Bidding

You have 2 biddable minor suits open your longest one 1D, partner responds with your short suit 1H, and you rebid clubs. With no major suit fit, partner North bids 3NT- All Pass.

Plan Before You Play

Win all your high cards but the finesse for the QC promotes the jack of clubs into a winning card.

The Play

East leads the unbid suit a spade, win with KS lead the KC and then 5C playing JC from dummy. Play AC and then 7C. Play QS, then AS QD,and a low diamond to AD, KD noticing all the diamonds are out, so play 9D and 8D, they can have the last trick.

Comment

Making 12 tricks. If opponents lead a heart you cannot make 12 tricks.

The above commentary is intended as a guideline only. As with any Bridge hand there are many ways to bid and play any hand.
