Analysis by Raad Bunni

After A lead West will ponder where to go from here. He will play another trump, win it with 4, Now a low and finesse the Q, when that holds cash the A. Now play a to the A and ruff a . Try a finessing the K which losses to West A. Claim making 4.

Analysis by Robert Todd

North passes (rearrange the location of the 11 points and it could be an opener), East passes, and South opens 1 (maybe 1NT, but this is possibly too good for that.) West passes and North likely bypasses the to just show the limit raise in - possibly with a Drury 2. South just takes that to game, not giving the opponents any more info. If South does open 1NT, North transfers to and they play 4.
With South as declarer, the defense can't get both of their tricks, so declarer should lose just 1 and 1 (although that does need the defense to just take the A, which they may not, and declarer could make 12 tricks.)
