Against three no-trump, West leads the king and queen of spades, which you duck, but you have to win the third round of the suit. Of course you place West with the diamond ace for his opening bid, so you know not to play a diamond right away. But you have only eight top tricks, so where do you look for that ninth trick? Seems reasonable, doesn't it, to also give the opening bidder the heart king? OK, so you play a heart to the queen. What a disappointment! East wins the king and leads a diamond to his partner's ace. That sets you two tricks. Don't jump out of your chair now, but this is a contract that you really should make. What is required is just a little bit of looking ahead. Upon winning the third spade, you discarded a heart from dummy. Now picture what cards everyone will be left holding if you now run your six club tricks. Dummy will have the A-Q of hearts and the K-7 of diamonds. You will have four red cards, including the diamond queen. But what about opener West? If he ever lets a spade go, you can set up a diamond trick by forcing his ace, since he cannot then have two spades to set you. And so perforce West will throw the diamond jack and four small hearts as you run the club suit. It becomes easy after that to play the heart ace. dropping East's king and making the contract.
