Contract 6S by W
A, trumped in dummy.
AK pulled opponents trumps, 2/2. Declarer claimed with the following statement:
The rest are mine. I have
K then over to dummy's clubs pitching three diamonds on the clubs.
96532. Because of the statement, "pitching the three diamonds on dummy's clubs," must declarer pitch the last diamond on RHO's
9 instead of ruffing? The last diamond could then be ruffed in dummy to score 6S+1.
Thank you so much for your help.
