The Auction:
West  North  East  South
pass    pass    pass  1♠
pass    2♠       pass  2NT
pass    3NT    all pass

After three passes, South had to decide whether to open 1NT or 1♠. The question of when to open 1NT with a five-card major produces a lot of different opinions, even among experts. On this occasion, South decided to open 1♠, but did well to introduce notrump into the picture, and finally ended up in 3NT.

West led the ♣10, ducked all the way around. A club was continued to East's queen, ducked again. The ♣K from East was taken perforce with the Ace, and South led a spade to the jack and East's ace. A heart was now returned. What is your plan to score nine tricks?
