The Auction:

all pass

On today's deal, which took place in a Swiss team-of-four event, the spotlight is on the South hand. South has a difficult balancing decision to make, whether to make a takeout double or to balance with 1. Both calls have equal merit, and at the table South chose to bid 1. North-South did well to eventually reach 4♠ via the auction shown.

The A is led (opponents lead Ace from Ace-King), East follows with the three. Plan the play after West switches to the ♣3 at trick two.
