West led the Ten of Diamonds and Dummy won the King.

East signalling his doubleton by playing the Knave.

Declarer needed some luck.

Trumps 3-2 and the Club finesse on side.

His clever line of play ensured that no more fortune was required on the assumption, East held no more than two Diamonds.

Declarer led out three rounds of Trumps, giving East his winner.

East led a Second Diamond, Dummys Ace winning and Declarer cashed the Ace of Hearts, discarding a Diamond, ruffed a Heart, successfully finessed the Knave of Clubs, ruffed another Heart, then led out his two remaining Trumps.

West found himself squeezed.

Throw all his Diamonds and Dummy's third Diamond is promoted.

So West led to bare his King of Clubs.

No good.

Dummy's Diamond was discarded and low Club led.

West's King was taken by Dummy's Ace and his Queen took the last trick.

Slam made.
