We have shown the Jacoby Modern method in the box with North giving a strong but nonforcing limit jump raise. How about the play of the hand? South should take the spade finesse. You finesse for the king when you hold 10 cards in the suit. Tltt finesse loses and let's assume that west continues hearts. S^uth has lost a trump trick and will lose a club trick eventually. How can he get away with the loss of just one trick in diamonds? One may to eliminate all clubs and hearts from the combined hands and then play ace and a second diamond. That will win if there is a singleton honor or a doubleton king-queen. It will also win if either defender holds an honor and one small. If so, he will be end-played and forced to give declarer a ruff and discard. Neither play will work, but that doesn't mean that South shouldn't make his contract. The correct way to play diamonds is to work with the clubs. South simply leads a low club from dummy. If East is smart enough to hop up with the kind and lead a diamond, South plays low. West takes his king, but South has a finesse agaist the queen. If East plays low South will lead another club when next on lead and discard a diamond from dummy. Later on, he will discard another diamond on the club that has been set up and never lose even one diamond trick. The bidding has been: Vint North East South 1* 14 Pass 2N.T.
