Dealer N Game All.
Another deal from the Tollemache qualifier.
You play three diamonds after the opponents have competed in spades.
West leads a low spade to East's ace, who then returns the spade queen, overtaken by West who then leads the jack of spades with East following.
You ruff the third spade and draw trumps in two rounds.
How do you play now?

It is fairly likely that West has the club ace, but it is better to play the king of hearts followed by the jack and let this run if not covered.
East will then be on play and have to lead a heart or club conceding a trick.
You will only go off if West has the queen and ten of hearts and East has the ace of clubs.
The full deal was as below, so finessing the heart jack or club king would have worked and gained an overtrick
