You reach 6 clubs from south and receive the lead of the diamond 9. You duck. RHO wins the Q and returns a small club. Given that the diamond is a doubleton or top of nothing, what is your choice of lines - do you play for some squeeze or do you try to simply ruff a 3rd heart?

What about a ruffing finesse of the diamond?

Frankly, it didn't occur to me. Blind spot. Thanks.
