The Auction:
West   North   East   South
                       1♠      2
2♠       5        all pass

The 11th World Computer-Bridge Championship recently took place from October 4-9 in Shanghai, China along with the World Championships. Bridge Baron reached the finals, losing to WBridge5 of France. More details about the competition can be found here.

This week's deal is modified from a deal that took place in a round robin match between Bridge Baron and Sharkbridge. The auction was not quite elegant, particularly since 3NT is cold and 5 appears to have no play, but Sharkbridge found a nice line of play.

The opening lead was the ♠3, taken perforce in dummy with the ace. The percentage play of a diamond to the ace brought down the king from West, thereby crossing the first hurdle. Plan the rest of the play.
