Declarer, then knew- that, he need not lose a Spade trick, but thai he must lose a Diamond unless the fourth Spade in Dummy's hand could be made a winner, or unless he could force West to make a fatal discard. Declarer reasoned it probable that West held four Spades, and it was also probable that he had the King of Diamonds; therefore a squeeze might be effective. To trick seven Declarer led tha 6 of Clubs from his own hand: East discartted the Trey of Hearts; Dummy p'ayed the King of Gluts; and West discarded the 6 of Hearts. Declarer continued trumps with Dummy's 9 of Clubs; West discarded tho Trey of Diamonds; closed hand won the trick with the 10 of Clubs- and East discarded the 7 of Dial I monds.
