1: transfer to H 2: denies 4 spade cards and ask to chose between 3NT and 4 3: good fit in hearts

Lead: 6

Declarer won the first trick with dummy’sJ and drew three rounds of trumps, watching West discard a diamond. Cashed the Q, and saw West play the3, realizing that he only had two clubs and probably 5 diamond cards because of his discard in the last trump. Possible distribution 4-2-5-2

Declarer played another trump watching West discard a spade and afterwards run the clubs. West discarded two spades and a diamond. At that moment Donati knew West only had one spade and diamonds, so he ruffed a spade to take West’s last spade (scape card).

Now declarer was able to play the8 from dummy, East played the 10, Donati the Q, and poor West won with the K (endplay), and he had to return a diamond giving declarer the rest of the tricks.
