South in today’s deal was Swedish
expert Jorgen Lindqvist. Thanks for
this deal goes to the great Swedish
player P.O. Sundelin. Sundelin,
reputably, has pulled off many
swindles during his long career.
West found the inspired lead of
his singleton trump. East grabbed

this with his ace and led a second
trump. This defense denied South the
two club ruffs in dummy that would
have made the contract easy. Even if
the opponents’ hearts split 4-3, there
were not enough dummy entries to
ruff out the suit and get back for
the established long heart. Lindqvist
decided to try for a deceptive play.
Lindqvist won the second trump
in his hand and led a low club away
from his ace! The defenders won and
played diamonds. Lindqvist ruffed
the second diamond, ruffed a club
in dummy, and then ruffed another
diamond. He then ran all the rest
of his spades coming down to a
three-card ending. Both defenders
“knew” that their partner held the
ace of clubs, so East came down to
two hearts and the singleton king of
clubs. West also kept two hearts and
only one club. South cashed his ace
of clubs and his other club before
claiming the last trick with dummy’s
ace of hearts. Call the police!
