General plan.
Ah. The third round of hearts is not needed to get the relevant count information. I missed that.

In your four-card ending you have: -- -- Kx 105 opposite -- -- AJx 8 (The clubs might be Ax opposite J) Now if LHO is down to Qx he wins the queen and plays back his high club, holding you to 10 tricks, I think. Playing for the squeeze guarantees eleven tricks, since ...
