West leads the Two of Clubs to East’s Knave and Declarers Ace - too late.

If Declarer wins the Ace and plays to ruff Clubs or draw Trumps (West will win the Second Trump and lead a Club) the Declarer will go one down.

Declarer must duck the Club to retain control.

East continues with the Club, ruff in Dummy and force out the Ace of Hearts.

West ducks the Queen of Hearts and win the Second Heart with the Ace.

Best defence for West is to switch to a Spade.

Declarer wins Dummy’s Ace and lead a Diamond.

East wins and plays a second Spade.

Win in Dummy. ruff a Diamond, draw West’s remaining Trump then run Dummy’s Spades.

Contract made..
