The obvious danger is that South has the king of clubs and North the ace of diamonds, in which case, after you ruffed the iieart and took the losing club finesse, the defense might cash three'diamonds to inflict a one- trick defeat. The best / way of preventing this from happening is by discarding a club on the ace of hearts. This unusual play virtually assures the contract. It makes the hand regardless of the location of the king of clubs and ace of diamonds. Let's suppose that North makes the neutral return of a trump at trick two. You win it, cash the ace of clubs, and continue with the queen. If South follows with the king, you ruff and are now assured of eleven tricks. If South follows low, you discard a diamond and are assured of ten tricks, even though North has the king. The club discard at trick one offers the tremendous advantage of per mitting a later club finesse that can lose only to North, the non- dangerous opponent. 2. Take the ace of spades, draw two rounds of trumps, and play a diamond from dummy, finessing the nine. If the nine wins, enter dummy with a trump and repeat the finesse. If the diamonds are divided 3-3 or 4-2, you make the contract by discarding three -spades from dummy and ruffing the ten of spades. It would be wrong to cash the A-K of diamonds, planning to ruff a diamond in dummy. Ac- :ually, once the queen does not fall after playing the A-K, it would become impossible to make the contract, since there would no longer be a chance of avoiding a spade loser. Cashing the A-K of diamonds wins only when the queen falls on the first or second round; finessing immediately for the queen offers a far greater chance of success. Note that it would be wrong to cash the ace of diamonds and then finesse the nine. This method of play would fail if South had four dia monds to the queen.
