The. fall of West's J-10 of ilubs on the A-K makes your nine, a trick, and when you proceed to cash it West discards a ow heart. You are now at the crossroads of the hand because your only real chance lies in roceeding on the basis that Vest's original, distribution was i-4-5-2. If he has any other'dis- .ribution, you ; simply can't make the hand. In line with this, you cash the' ace of spades before thrusting West into the,lead.with a.diaV mond. All your assumptions turn put well, because, after West finishes cashing iiis f o u r diamond tricks, he is forced to return a heart away from his K-3-8. Dummy, at thi.vpoint, consists of the doubleton Q-J of hearts and the queen of clubs, while your last three cards ara the- A-7-3 of hearts. The forced heart return permits you to score the remaining tricks, and so you come breezing horiie with the contract -- all as a result of top-notch card .reading and, lest we forget, more than a modicum of good luck.
