West led a low spade which was allowed to run to East’sJ, and East returned a heart won by North’sQ. A low club went to the queen and King, and the8 was taken by theA. East exited with another heart and franco entered dummy with theJ (East discarded a heart) in order to lead a diamond to theQ andA. A second spade lead came from West and Franco showed his quality going up with theA, cashing the last club, exiting with a spade to force East to lead away from hisJ to the10 on the table. Franco thus made one spade, three hearts, two diamonds, three clubs and his contract. In the other room the final contract was 2NT , just made.
