Double Dummy Problem #1

This problem was given to me by a friend who told me it was from a book. If anyone knows the name of the book and the author, please email me so I can properly give credit to the author.

Try to make 3N on the Q of hearts lead.
Note: If you play the K of clubs, it will be ducked. If you then continue with a spade to the Q , RHO will follow with the 9 of spades. Then if you play Q of clubs to the A, win the heart return, cash A of diamonds, K of spades, Q of spades, RHO will play 10 of spades and J of spades under the K and Q, foiling your attempt to throw him in.

Double Dummy Problem #2

I'm told that this hand was played (and made) by Michael Rosenberg AT THE TABLE - without the benefit of seeing the east-west hands! Michael, however, denies having played it at the table. He says he knows the hand well because Fred Gitelman gave it to him as a problem and he solved it correctly.

Try to make 6H on the J of spades lead.
Note: The actual auction is unknown. It IS known that east bid spades and west raised spades during north-south's strong auction to 6H.
