Can you guess what contract was reached?

West, who has a 6-card suit of hearts, starts the bidding. East has a solid suit of six diamonds, which count for six tricks and 3-card support for hearts. East also has a singleton spade, which might encourage East to bid quite high – if West/East could secure the contract and North/South start by leading spades two times, West could regain the lead, pull the trumps and run the diamonds.

North holds seven clubs starting with the ♣A and has a singleton diamond. South has 16 HCP, an 8-card suit of spades and two singletons – hearts and clubs. Together North/South hold 10 spades and 8 clubs, but finding an entry point to North`s hand might pose a problem. Will North support South with only two spades? How high will South bid with three diamond losers?
