Holding QJ AK9xxx. Qx Axx you briefly wonder if opponents are stealing but go quietly.

A top heart seems clear and dummy tables a bit of a surprise:

T9876543. Qxx. X.  J

3 tricks are clear, but partner will need a specific card to beat this one If declarer has their bid.

Partner follows with J at trick one (right side up count/attitude, not that it matters given NT opening).

A , K next (both follow).

Now time to see if partner has the key card, the trump deuce!

Indeed they do , and declarer is forced to overruff with high trump promoting the setting trick.

Would this be called a lowercut?
