"Grandmother Knows"

 

Submitted by Lloyd Knickle

 

This month's Backpage Bridge is a hand that Lloyd Knickle’s Grandmother showed him many years ago.

 

How would you play it?

 

The bid is 7 hearts by south.  The lead is the King of Clubs by west.  Lloyd insists that the east hand is typical of one George holds when he is Lloyd’s partner.
