Another deal from a second round Higson Cup knock out match.
After East opened one diamond, West made a pre-emptive raise to three diamonds, North doubled for take out and aggressively raised South's three spades to game.
Prospects did not look good on the queen of clubs lead, declarer needed East to only have two clubs unless the queen and jack of spades were doubleton.
Declarer ducked the club queen and the jack that followed, won by East with the ace. East now forced dummy to ruff a diamond. South now thought that he needed the hearts to break to make the contract, so played ace and king of hearts followed by a third one which he ruffed with the ten, just in case. When West was unable to overruff South played the king and ace of spades and was able to ruff the fourth heart. Fortunately South had unblocked the nine of clubs on the second round of clubs (without realising why this would be necessary) so now he could play a club to the eight. East was helpless, he could ruff a plain suit winner at some point, but then dummy was good.
