West led his Singleton Club and Declarer won in Dummy and played Ace and another Trump (to extract West of his Trumps) and led a Third Trump, East won his King and made a safe exit of his Fourth Trump. (Declarer throwing a Club from Dummy). Knowing from the bidding that East held no Hearts.

Declarers next move was to lead a Club to Dummy's Nine.

East won the Knave but was endplayed.

The lead of either minor would promote an extra trick-in practice, he chose a third Club.

Winning in Dummy with the Ten, it was now a simple match for Declarer to lead the King of Hearts.

West won the Ace and switched to a Diamond, but the Declarer hopped up with the King.

Cashed the Knave of Hearts and remaining top Clubs, then led over to his Ace of Diamonds taking the last trick with the Queen of Hearts.

Ten tricks and game made.
