This suit combination came up at Bramhall & Cheadle the other week.

S J432
S AQ108

You have plenty of entries to both hands, how do you play?


If you start with the jack you will lose a trick when East has the singleton king and West 9765.
So start with a small card from dummy and finesse the queen (or ten). 
If that holds return to dummy and play the jack.  This will still pick up K9xx with East.
