East discarded the three of hearts and then the seven of clubs. South next led a club to dummy's queen and ran the hearts. Declarer and West each discarded a diamond on the third heart. South next threw the ten of clubs; and West, the jack of clubs, Now South foolishly tried the diamond finesse. West took the queen of diamonds and the ace of clubs to defeat the contract. SHOULD LEAD CLUB At the end, declarer should make the contract by leading a club instead of trying the diamond finesse.. West would have to take the ace of clubs and lead diamonds, giving South a free finesse. West should casually discard a second diamond instead of the jack of clubs. South then goes down if he leads a club or tries the diamond finesse. South can still malcethe contract if he leads out the king and ace of diamonds, relying on the queen to be unguarded after West's two discards, but this sort of play is easier to talk about than to make at the table.
