May Challenge Hand

This month's Challenge hand is about finding that ninth trick, because you have only eight at the outset. Which suit should you start working on? Spades or clubs? It's a hand with a few choices. Most people would play on spades first, but is there something you could try before that?

Give it a go, and let me know how you played the hand. There’s a video to help and I’ll talk you through the hand there. Click the "?" for hints too.

(Please note that the computer will insist that you play a diamond to the king at trick two - this was necessary to stop East from misdefending)

Good luck!
