Your best chance is that West is 2227 and you can reach the established long . A nice variation occurs when West as it actually happens has three s. After establishing  suit you reach the dummy in trumps and play a . Why? First, 7321 pattern is about four times more likely than 7222. Second, even if West was 7222 you break even with those who didn't make your imaginative play - 11 tricks are assured by plausibly assuming that hand with AK, Q and K would open 1. This is very important - if your coup has a safety net, it's even a better play! So after reaching dummy in trumps you play a good  and East is cooked. In actual tourney, you are the only one to score 12 tricks.
