Analysis by Robert Todd

South opens 1 (upgrading this to a 1 - 2NT rebid hand), and West overcalls 1. North tries 1NT, which East passes, and so South readjusts his plans and just bids 3NT.
Sadly for declarer, West also has the outside entry of the A (although if West did not, he would duck the opening lead) to go with his , so North can only come to 8 tricks (6, 1, and 1) before the defense gets their 5 tricks. If West had the K as well, then on the run of the ,West would get squeezed out of a winner and North could make the contract.
