This is NOT a bridge column from the newspaper, but instead from a book by Mike Lawrence.
As East you hold:
do you bid and what is your plan?
I did NOT get either of the book's two solutions. I would have bid 2 Diamonds. After my partner's second bid, I would have bid 4 No Trump, asking for Aces. I would have positioned the final contract in either No Trump or Spades depending on my partner's second, and his third bids. I'm sure I'm wrong, but I can't understand the book's two solutions.
You can view the book's two solutions by clicking 'HERE'.
