Middle Game Hand
Club game, October 10, 2006. Your hand:
Lefty opens 1NT (15-17 HCP), Righty bids 2H (transfer), Lefty bids 2S, and Righty finishes off the auction with a bid of 4S. Eschewing the unobvious, you lead your singleton club. It is a middling card -- maybe the six. Dummy comes down with:
Declarer wins the Q, partner playing small. Declarer unblocks the AK of hearts, then leads a club to the ace in his hand. You can ruff.
Assuming reasonable play by declarer (which is the point of the middle game), how much do you know about the hand?
