You are playing 4S and LHO leads the A followed by the T. Your plan?

From what I see, W does not have both honors or he would have led one. He did not lead so I expect him to hold at least 2 of them. So I expect W to hold something like 0256 (if he has 1255 better for me) It will probably come down to guessing who has the Q if that is the case but I will play E to have it I guess.

I cover T with the J of because I can not afford East to discard a diamond on T Posted Image I need him to follow the diamonds as I ruff.

A- E ruffs J with 6 : Then I over ruff and ruff a diamond to dummy, come to hand with finesse and ruff another play 3rd .
a1- If E discards a on 3rd I ruff and play 4th and ruff in dummy, E over ruffs.(their 2nd trick) and if he plays he has AQ left, if he plays I win in dummy and play and claim.
a2-If E ruffs with T on 3rd , I discard a (loser on loser) and play a spade from dummy when in with K.

B-If E discards a on J : So do I. and rest is same as before.
