Partner leads a spade, you win with the honor of your choice, and declarer follows.  These opponents will definitely have a 6-card suit for a weak 2 opening.  Partner's spade spot and the bidding make it virtually certain that declarer has a singleton spade.  So, you can assume that declarer has 6 hearts and 1 spade.

What do you return at trick 2.  And, most important, WHY.  Be very specific about the hand you are playing for and the reason for your choice.

I'll post the answer in a couple of days.
