West is interested in a slam, but with two top losers in diamonds it would be premature to use Blackwood. West wants the two red Aces and the DK. How should he proceed?

West continues with a cue-bid of 5C. Since West has already shown first-round control of clubs, this shows second-round control - the CK or a singleton CA. It also denies the HA. East now continues with a cue-bid of 5D, showing second-round diamond control. West tries 6C, just in ca3e East has the HA as well, but knowing the HA is missing East signs off. ——————————————————————————————————3/6—— Fifty Plus index 670 ALL THE LATEST CHESS MOVES p478 Your Life Fun & Games Digitiser Grooves

PRESS REVEAL It is a better chance to find your Left-hand opponent with DQ-x-x-x (-x) than Dx-x-x-x. So instead of banging out DA-K hoping for DQ-x doubleton or the suit to break 3-3, play DA followed by D2 towards DJ-6. ——————————————————————————————————4/6—— Fifty Plus index 670 ALL THE LATEST CHESS MOVES p478 Your Life Fun & Games Digitiser Grooves
