I’d like to give a hand played by the pair Kolata – Kandemir, who completed the trials as the winner with a great difference with the runner up.

turkish trials hand 1

Kolata, who won the 7♣ lead from the hand, played his singleton spade, and after winning in dummy with J, continued with the Q♠. West returned a club, which is won with the ace in the dummy, and declarer played the K♠ and then the K When west ducked this, Kolata played two rounds of clubs. When west discarded a heart, he played the Q from the hand and 9 tricks set up when J appared. Even if west discarded a diamond instead of a heart, the position would not have changed and west would have been endplayed when winning a heart, to lead away from his ace of diamonds.
