Declarer won the Trump lead and counted Eleven top tricks.

He drew all the Trumps discarding Spades from Dummy, cashed Ace-King of Diamonds, discarding a Spade from hand, cashed the King of Hearts, finessed the Knave and when it held the trick, claimed his contract for the loss of One Spade.

Declarer should have thought of Diamond split.

If the break even then there was no need of Heart finesse as his losers will be discarded on Diamonds.

In this case Diamond would not split so he has to finesse the Knave of Hearts.
