did not shift to spades, so you have time to draw trumps and
take all those nice club tricks. Only problem is trump control.
trumps are 4-2, you need to give up a trump trick while you still
have a trump in dummy to ruff a third diamond lead. The best line
to ruff the second trick and lead a low heart from your hand. This
keeps control of the trumps. Win any return and claim 11 tricks
trumps are no worse than 4-2. Well played! Over and out.
