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

You are dealt the unimpressive South hand in a pair event. West opens 1♣, partner makes a takeout double, RHO bids 1 and you pass. West bids 1♠, partner doubles to show a good hand, East returns to his partner's first bid suit by bidding 2♣. Your hand has still not improved, so you pass again. West preemptively raises the level by bidding 3♣ which evokes yet another double from partner! RHO passes, you are forced to find a call and bid 3. LHO passes and partner pauses to consider the possibility of game, before reluctantly passing. Suddenly, you end up declaring the hand with your zero count. Who would have guessed!

West leads the ♣A and East plays an encouraging Ten. West switches to the 4 to start trick 2. Plan the play.
