Count Your Winners – Hand 2

As with the previous hand, we are in notrump, so lets start by counting our winners.

This time we’re in 6NT and it might look at first like this will be an easy hand to play with the chance even of picking up an extra trick. But, when we find out there is an unfortunately 5-1 spade split, we have to re-evaluate our plan. Now we can only count 11 winners. Where else can we look for our 12th trick?

Is there a better bet than the 50/50 heart finesse?

Watch the video and then try playing through the hand below:
