Partner opens a diamond and it goes: 1D-3H-3S-P-4S-AP.

West leads the J of hearts. You hope East thinks that his partner has the 10 of hearts so you play low from dummy. (If you play the queen the 10 sets up, but East then knows that partner is now void in hearts) East plays low and you win the Ace. You take the trump finnese and it loses. :( East understandably plays the 10 of diamonds.

What's your next move?

Win the king, and draw trumps ending in dummy. Then play a low heart, and East again plays low expecting West to have the 10. You win the 10 (shocking) and run trumps, then  play a diamond to the ace and East is squuezed.

If he pitches a club, the Ace of clubs and the Queen of clubs brings your trick total to ten.

If insteads he pitches the heart, then throw him in with a heart for him to lead into the tenace.
