You must communicate the good news to partner by making clear and unambiguous a signal as possible. The correct card to play is the SQ, which denies the SK and promises the SJ (and probably the S10).

West will know to continue with SK and another spade. ——————————————————————————————————2/6—— Chess 478 Fun & Galds 450 BAMBER WANTS SOME ANSWERS p458 Chess Fun & Games Digitiser Grooves
