Puzzle Time

Hi all

Greg showed me this deal, it’s from the All Western Regional in Santa Clara. Deep Finesse’s analysis on the printout said that eleven tricks in are possible, even on a lead. First solution in the comments gets eternal glory.

On a side note, would you open the South hand, and if so, what?

  1. Ruff the .
    Club to A.
    Run the Q of Diamonds, continue with a 2nd (doesn’t matter whether E covers)
    if W ruffs the 2nd ruff the black card he plays next.
    (a) Ruff a 3rd with the Q of Hearts and finesse in Hearts.
    Cash the other good and play till eternal glory :-)
    if W refuses to ruff the 2nd then go-to (a)
