West led the five of Clubs to East's King.

Declarer won the Ace, unblocked the Knave of Diamonds, ruffed a Club, then played a top Diamond.

East ruffed with the Six and Declarer overruffed with the eight and played the Ten of Trumps.

East won the Ace and led the Nine of Clubs.

West beat Declarers Knave with the Queen, cashed the Ten and then switched to a Spade.

Declarer had to finesse, but East won the King down One.

Winning trick One was the cause of Declarer's doom.

If he lets East hold the King of Clubs (Key play), he makes overtrick.

Best for East, with no good move is a Second Club.

But Declarer ruffs in Dummy, crosses to the Knave of Diamonds and leads the King of Trumps.

East wins the Ace but is powerless to prevent Declarer from regaining the lead, drawing remaining Trumps, then leading over to the Ace of Spades to cash the Diamonds.

Game made, plus One.
