SouLh's discard >n tills last diamond lead may well be the. four of hearts, while West can. safely discard a small club. Dummy returns a heart and West finesses the queen. West has now won six tricks, and has only two more in sight, as North will run his spades as soon as declarer loses the lead. So, inasmuch as West cannot possibly lose his two aces, he leads the spade himself, hoping that North has four good ones (North cannot hold more than four because his original lead of the five showed either four or five). Now If North wins with his good spades, South Is squeezed, nnd by following South discards declarer must win an extra trick in either hearts or clubs. Of course, the squeeze is prevented if North refrains from leading his last spade, in other words refuses to apply the squetzc to his partner.
