Here’s a slam I butchered.
2. Not very scientific, but sometimes you just take off the white gloves and enter while swinging your ax.
Dummy comes down:
King lead. Alright, this baby needs some work. I can count only ten tricks with a successful hook. I won’t go into detail how I botched the contract, but my opponent threw me a trick-twelve-bone with a ruff and sluff.
It took me some overtime to formulate the most elegant plan. Draw two rounds of trumps ending in dummy. Play a to the Queen and exit with the Ace of and the Ten. This basically wins with the 3-3, King doubleton onside and various 2-4 holdings where East will be endplayed. Those last ones might be a bit difficult to read, though.
I think that’s as much optimization juice you can squeeze from that lemon.
