But first, a note about the bidding. Although South had a decent five-card heart suit, it would have been dangerous for him to overcall at the two-level. If the opponents had the balance of power and had the heart suit locked up, the penalty could be quite severe. Of course it would be different if the opposing opening bid were one heart and South's K-Q-7-5-3 were in spades. Then a one-spade overcall would be correct. After North's two-spade cue-bid response to South's takeout double. South was delighted to bid three hearts, which was raised to four. The opening lead went to dummy's spade ace. Since the bidding marked East with the outstanding key cards, it was easy for Careful Charlie to figure out that the right play in trumps was to lead the jack first. Only East could hold the heart ace, so only East might have all four trumps. East grabbed the ace, cashed a spade and returned a club. Charlie won in dummy and played a low heart. East put in the eight and Charlie won the queen. Now Charlie had to return to dummy to play another heart. Place card-pusher Willy Nilly in that spot and he would surely try another club. Not Charlie! He played the king of diamonds. When East ducked, Charlie played the jack of diamonds. He knew East had the ace of diamonds for his opening, and he knew that when East took the ace he would have to furnish declarer with an entry to dummy to make the final play in the trump suit.
