North South bid up to a small slam in spades after East had overcalled a natural two diamonds over North's one notrump opener.
West led the six of diamonds, won by declarer Phil Taylor in hand. He took the spade finesse to find that he seemingly had an inescapable trump loser.
With the club finesse likely to be wrong the contract looks doomed, but Phil was able to play for a rare ending.
He took another trump finesse, then three rounds of each red suit ruffing in hand. Now king, ace and a third club left East on play in the position below.
Whichever red suit East plays, South trumps and West's trump trick disappears.
This ending is called a smother play.
