In a team match, some exuberant bidding lands you in a reasonable spot:

LHO leads the K: 2, 4...? What's your plan? Opps are playing UDCA.

Okay, LHO continues the 5 to the 6, 9, A. You cash the A and ruff a diamond, LHO following 5,7 and RHO following 3,4. Now what?

It would be nice to make it with Kx and AQ offside, by extracting all of LHO's clubs then endplaying him with a heart. However, I can't see a way to do that.

Suppose I duck the club, win the next one, ruff a diamond, ruff a club, cash A, and lead another diamond. If LHO has four clubs, he can ruff in and exit with his last club, giving me a ruff and discard but not giving me another trick. If LHO has only three clubs, that makes him 6223, so he can ruff in and give his partner a spade ruff.

At the moment my best plan is to take a spade finesse.

Edit: I can do it if LHO is 4234: duck the club, win the next one, A, diamond ruff, club ruff, A, diamond ruff, club ruff, diamond ruff, club ruff, exit with a heart.
If future responses could be on topic, i.e. comparing the two suggested systems, rather than some alternative nutjob method, that'd be appreciated, thanks. - MickyB
