To take four tricks, lead the queen for a finesse. If West covers, win the ace, cash the jack and lead the 8. This succeeds when the suit is 3-3, when East holds 10-x, 9-x, or 10-9, or when West holds K-9, K-10 or 10-9.

Leading low to the
queen is not as
good, since there
are five K-x
doubletons for
East versus six
10-x or 9-x
doubletons. In
addition, the K-9
or K-10 doubleton
in the West hand
can only be
neutralized by
leading the queen.
