South starts with six top tricks: two spades, one heart, one diamond and two clubs.
It looks obvious to duck a club, assuming that the suit will split 3-2 and provide five
winners. But what if this is a 32.17 percent deal when clubs are not 3-2?

Just in case it is, South should first cash the diamond ace. If that collects only low cards,
he continues with a club and ducks in the dummy, hoping for the 3-2 break. Here,
though, the diamond jack falls, so declarer continues diamonds to take two spades, one
heart, four diamonds and two clubs.
