West leads the 2. East takes the king and returns the T. Plan the play.

The defense now has 4 top tricks. I concluded that it was less likely the spade suit could be brought home without loss than 9 tricks could be had with 3 hearts, 2 diamonds, 3 spades and a club. I pitched a low spade. My plan was to rely on West to have 2 of the 3 key rounded control cards. Down 1.

The full hand:
