South is declarer at 6S.
West’s opening lead is the S2.
South wins and draws as many trumps as he wants.
East will ­hold his CA until the CK is played.
How can South play to guarantee the slam?

  • I presume that this is intended as a double-dummy play problem?!

    In which case, I have got it! :) I won't spoil it for others by giving the answer here,
  • Yes, it is double dummy. Playing for the CA onside is the correct single dummy play since EW never bid.
