You do realise that the double dummy result of discarding a spade is down 4?
Discarding a diamond might have been interesting.
There's no need to risk -4. Discard as you did, but when North exits with a heart, just cash the red suits ending in dummy, then lead a spade. That works regardless of how the spade honours are distributed.
The defence could have prevented this by cashing two spades and then exiting in a red suit.
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
