Here’s a deal I just cannot keep to myself. René played this one on a pairs night at BC Star. That also justifies his bidding… kind of.

East led the Ace of and switched to a for West’s Ace. Two more rounds of , and look what happens to East. He’s squeezed in some weird kind of way! He can miss one , but the third round of just kills him, he has to let go of his guard.

It hurts to have too many trumps, doesn’t it? René ended up with eight tricks, losing three a trump and just one . Nice!
