West led a Trump won by the Declarer in hand.

If Declarer draws Trumps and tries to score an extra trick in Clubs the bad split dooms him.

Better is to broach Clubs early with a Fourth round in Dummy.

But Ace and another Club sees East win and return a Second Trump and when West wins the Third Club and leads a Third Trump, Declarer is again held to his Nine tricks.

The solution is a Dummy reversal.

Win the Trump lead high in hand and play Ace and another Diamond.

The defence wins and play a Second Trump.

Win in Dummy and ruff a Diamond, play Ace of Hearts, Heart to the King and ruff a Heart then cross to the Ace of Clubs and ruff a Fourth Diamond.

Three ruffs in hand, Three Trumps in Dummy, plus Four top side - suit winners make Ten tricks.

Game made and a near top.
