An expert defender would not let a diamond go and would hold South to his contract, but an expert South would find a way to develop a squeeze against East. He would cash three rounds of trumps as a starter. • Then he would give up a club trick in order to prepare for the possible squeeze, He might give it up by playing ace and j*ei? of clubs, but a more elegant line would be the submarine play of the club jack first, In either case South would have a /urtn< er plan which would be to play and ruff a third spade in case the defense didn't lead the third spade for him. He could accomplish this by leading a diamond to dummy, Then he would cash hfe tost trump or trumps and come down to two diamonds, a high one and deuce, In dummy itnd three diamonds to the queen lii h|j own hmd.
