New players are often impressed by an expert's ability to claim as declarer early in the play. Experts are also very good at knowing when not to claim. In these situations the expert knows that he has no technical chance to win an extra trick. The defense doesn't always know this, however. Declarer can often take advantage of this situation by creating an illusion that results in an extra trick. This week's deal is an example of this type of play.
