Bmb Club White 30

Week 0203 : 13th May 2024



A play used, as the name implies, to cut communications between the opposing hands usually to destroy an enemy entry needed to give his partner a ruff.

For example:

As South, you play in 4♠ after East opened 1 and West raised hearts. East overtakes West’s K lead with the A and switches to the ♣2. East’s plan is clear – to get in with the ♠A, put West in with the Q and score a club ruff.

To snip communications between the opposing hands, you win the club, cross to the A and throw your remaining heart on the Q when East covers with his marked K.
