Never mind the theory, study the results. This deal from the Generali European Championships saw East pre-empting in some fashion and South, little suspecting that Six Diamonds might be the best spot, overcalled with Four Hearts.
West led the 24 to the three, king and ace. Some declarers tried to ruff a losing club immediately, and this worked badly when West ruffed in with !6, led a spade, ruffed the next club return and (to add insult to injury) gave East a spade ruff, leading to two down.
Obviously not an outlandish try but, if you are prepared to rely on the diamond finesse being right, the simple approach of taking the club and following with the ace and queen of hearts seems to work a great deal better.Reuse content
