Declarer won the Club lead, crossed to the Queen of Diamonds and led the Knave of Hearts.

East covered and West had to score Two Trump tricks to defeat the Slam.

The correct line, having won the Club and crossed to Dummy in Diamonds, is to lead a low Heart.

East's King is beaten by the Ace and a low Heart is led.

West must duck or Declarer will draw his remaining Trumps and cash his Spades.

Dummy's Knave of Hearts having scored, Declarer can not play a third Heart or West will win and cash Club tricks.

Instead Declarer crossed to the King of Spades, ruffs a Club and cashes the Ace and Queen of Spades, discarding his last Club.

West has to follow to all three Spades.

Declarer crosses to the King of Diamond and lead the Ten of Hearts.

West wins the Queen, but Declarer can win his return, draw his last Trump and claim.
