Trivia question answer

Last week in this post I posed a trivia question. If you haven't seen it yet, go check it now. There's a hint below the fold of the original post, and further hints in the comments.

Now for some final hints, with the answer below the fold.

1. As suggested by the lead and some strange features of the play (most notably North signaling with the ♣7), this deal was played at Whist.

2. The character's initials were H.H.

Answer: Horatio Hornblower, in _Beat to Quarters_. For what it's worth, I'm a huge fan of the whole series.
