THE SWORD OF DAMOCLES

TEAMS.
DEALER WEST – E/W VUL.

Here is your hand as West:

♠ 8
 AQ104
 875
♣ AKQ87

You open 1♣ and the auction goes into overdrive:

WNES
1♣DblePass1♠
Dble4♠

Your singleton Spade and 15HCP were enough to inspire a take-out Double at your second turn, but North abruptly ended the sequence. Expecting to discover a dummy with high potential, you lead the Ace of Clubs and are not disappointed:

Contract: 4 Spades by South.
Lead: Ace of Clubs (the 4 from East, the 9 from South).
