Opening 6H in Atlanta

I had a bridge hand today at the Atlanta ACBL Nationals which I opened 6H:


Dummy came down with JTxx — KQxxx Kxxx.

On the opening lead of the Diamond Ace, it was easy to make 7.

Same contract at other table after lots more bidding, but the bidding helped the opening lead and they made only 6. (After a Diamond control bid, it’s clearer not to lead the Diamond Ace!)
