2020 Play Problem #1
The great Pietro Berlusconi had a great talent for concocting difficult and beautiful hands. One of his hands will be our first hand of 2020.
You opened 1 Club because that is what you do with your balanced hands (1 Diamond is unbalanced), and so you are at the helm at 6 Clubs. West, somewhat surprisingly, led the Queen of Hearts. When you decide to draw trumps, you will follow the odds in the trump suit (since West showed a long spade suit) and start by cashing dummy's honor, guarding against a void in West -- and that is what you find. East has Qxx of clubs.
Take it from there.
