Tricky Play / bid situation for reader to solve

When you cannot rectify count for a simple squeeze, strip squeeze might help

A simple squeeze has some basic requirements. One of those is that there shouldn't be any trick to lose. If everyone holds 6 cards, you should need to make all those six tricks. If you need to make five tricks with six cards remaining, you need to lose a trick early, win whatever defenders return, and then go for the simple squeeze. If, for some reason, you cannot afford to lose a trick that way, you need to look for some other technical play instead of a simple squeeze.
