When it is used immediately over a natural minor suit opening bid, ideally it should show five cards in both majors. Despite the irregularity of North's bid, the result should have been satisfactory. Unfortunately declarer slipped. West led a trump. Seeing an opportunity to eliminate a quick diamond loser, declarer won the heart jack in dummy and played a club. West took South's king with his ace and continued with a second heart. Only now did declarer go after the spade suit. But when West won the spade king and played a diamond, South could not muster enough tricks to make his contract. Ruffing a minor suit loser would enable him to get to dummy so that he could ruff out one spade, but returning to dummy a second time uses up the last trump entry. Although he could then ruff one more spade, setting up that suit, there was no way to get back there to enjoy those tricks. The solution is now obvious. To make 10 tricks, declarer must establish the spade suit by leading a spade immediately at trick two. Now West's second heart lead is won in dummy and a spade is ruffed. With two trump entries left in dummy, declarer can get back to trump another spade and return again to cash three good spade tricks. In his greedy rush to rid dummy of a diamond loser, declarer failed to plan the play to give himself a reasonable chance to make the contract. None of us would make that mistake, would ,9 we!
