 Q 5 J 9 8 3 2

South opened 1NT and North raised to 3NT. West leads the 3.

Problem 1: Declarer plays the queen from dummy. East covers with the king and South wins with the ace. Who has the ten?

Problem 2: Declarer plays the 5 from dummy, ten from East and South wins with the ace. Who has the king?

Solution 2: If the situation were like this:

 Q 5 J 9 8 3 2 K 10 4 A 7 6
