1. Slam Try In Spades.

West led the King of Hearts and Decarer won his Ace.

He ruffed a Heart.

East following with Ten.

He crossed to the King of Clubs and ruffed a Heart with the Nine of Spades.

Unfortunately, East overruffed with the King and returned a Trump.

Declarer was now a Trump short in Dummy and had to go one down.

Losing the Knave of Hearts at the end.

Unlucky though he was that East overruffed the Third Heart.

He might have been warned by East's Ten of Hearts on the second round.

In any case, it cannot cost South to ruff the Third Heart with the Ace of Spades.

He cashed the Ace and Queen of Clubs, discarding his Diamond loser.

He plays the Ace of Diamonds and ruffs a Diamond with Two of Spades and leads the Knave of Hears ruffing with Dummy's Nine.

It does not matter that East can overruff the Fourth Heart as Declarer's last four cards are the Queen, Knave, Ten and Seven of Spades, all winners.
