Bidding Commentary: The bidding goes
West              North                East             South
1C                   P                         1D                P
1H                  P                          1S                 P
3S                   P                          4S                All Pass
East-West reach a 4S contract with East as declarer.

Lead & Defense Commentary: The K of clubs is the standard lead; however, the contract cannot be made if South leads a trump or if a heart is led and North returns a trump.
Play Commentary: There are not enough winners to make the contract if trumps are played early. East must trump cards in the two long suits and make the contract via a crossruff.
