Playing a regional KO, the following suit combination made its appearance in a 4 contract:


A (dummy).... Q9xxxxx.

On the first round of hearts the 10 appeared from lefty. Most experienced declarers know to lead low on the second round because restricted choice makes the K10 doubleton nearly twice as likely as J10 doubleton, and those are the (seemingly) only relevant positions.

However, an expert lefty MUST falsecard from J10x on the first heart lead. This in no way affects declarer's play on the second round of the suit. But this means the K will come fluttering down occasionally- on the right! 

A little kicker.
