Plan Before You Play

In NoTrumps Count your winning tricks. Spades:3, Hearts:2, Diamonds:1, Clubs:2. You need to develop at least 1 more winner to make your contract. Clubs looks to be your strongest suit for this. Maybe finesse west for the QC

The Play

A spade lead. Now maybe you can get an extra spade trick with the 10S, yes! Lead out the KC and then JC, cover the QC and then 10C and 4C are high. Lead out 2D and the 10D is good, Play AS, KS QS, AH, KH notice the JH is discarded so the 10H is high! The last diamond goes to the opponents.
