The Auction:
West   North   East   South
           21      pass      3♣2
all pass

1 - short diamonds, 11-15 HCP, length in other three suits
2 - sign-off

This week's deal is like a chess problem in the focus is on the end game. West leads the ♣A trying to cut down dummy's ruffing power, and manages to crash his partner's king. A club is led to East's queen. The next few tricks are as follows:

Trick 3 - East plays a diamond to dummy's ace
Trick 4 - ♠K to East's ♠A
Trick 5 - J to the K, pitching a heart from dummy
Trick 6 - spade to the 10 and East's queen
Trick 7 - 10 led, ruffed with the ♣J in dummy.
Trick 8 - ♠J cashed, discarding a heart from hand.

The task on hand is to take the rest of the tricks.
