East took the trick, but was endplayed. If he led a spade or diamond, it would have been
away from his queen into dummy’s tenace. So he tried the club jack, but declarer ruffed
in his hand (a seventh trump trick) and discarded the spade jack from the dummy. He
claimed two spades, six hearts, two diamonds, one club and the club ruff.
