Acol Bidding

Open your major suit - partner raises you to 1NT 6-9 HCP and 2 cards in each suit, you bid to 3S showing good points and a 5 card suit, inviting partner to bid game if they have the higher end of the 6-9 points. Partner bids game.

Plan Before You Play

Dummy goes down and you count your losers. AC, AD, KD and maybe the QH if the heart finesse doesn't work out. So draw trumps, and finesse the QH hoping it is in easts hand

The Play

Lose to AD, win QD, draw 3 rounds of trumps, lead 10C from hand, win club return in dummy, lead KH, the lead low heart to hands JH, play the rest of your winners in your hand.
