West cashed the Ace of Hearts and switched to a Club.

East won and led a low Heart.

West ruffing with the Ten,

A second Club was ruffed, then Declarer cashed the Ace of Trumps, West dropping the Queen.

PRC would suggest that East held the Knave of Spades.

However Declarer thought of the shape of East's hand.

He had Five Hearts and was certain to have Five Clubs and Three Spades which meant that he was void in Diamonds.

Would he not have returned a high Heart at trick three as a suit preference signal for Diamond?

And would he not have bid on to Five Clubs - which he would make?

PRC had to be ignored.

Declarer cashed the King of Trumps.

West's Knave was felled and Declarer cashed his red-suit.

Game made.
