The problem was that Fishy didn't know what to
discard on the A. If hearts were 3-3 or the
jack was doubleton, he should discard a spade.
However, if the Q was singleton or doubleton,
he should discard a heart. And if the Q was
with East any number of times, and J was
fourth, he should discard a heart.

Harry solved much of the problem by ruffing the
opening lead and playing the A, looking for the
jack. No luck. His next play was the A looking
for the queen. Still no luck. Next the K. Still
no jack. Now the K! Success. Finally. The
Q fell from East. Knowing his J was a winner,
Fishy crossed to the A and discarded a heart
on the A, ruffed a diamond back to his hand,
drew trump and made the grand.

Had the Q not appeared, Fishbein would cross
to the A and discard the J on the A hoping
hearts were 3-3.
