This deal is from the recent NBL round 4 match.
West led the spade ten ducked to the jack, the queen of spades was returned with declarer discarding a club and winning with the king in dummy.
With only eight tricks and little prospect of a ninth declarer resorted to the tried and trusted technique of running his long suit and hoping that the defence went astray.
On the diamonds West threw the seven of spades, a club and two low hearts, dummy discarded spades and East a club. The ace of hearts followed by another heart led to this end position with East on lead.
Now declarer can always succeed. The most challenging defence is for East to play the club king which declarer can either duck or win and play a spade to endplay West. In practice East played the nine and six of hearts which made it easy for declarer.
To beat the contract West must keep one more heart and one less club and East must keep three clubs.
