Ruff some s, set up some s. I hope we don't go more than 1 off and that 5 is making, as 6 looks adventurous...

I think I can always make this contract as long as W is 2155 and has the A. Is it worth playing for this ?

ruff
ruff
8 to J
ruff
Q to A
trump won in hand
ruff
ruff
Cash trumps and spades

If the A flies in first time, I will win the trump return, ruff a club and play Q overtaking if it's not ruffed, then back to the above.
