Four players tried to make this contract after the JC lead. All four failed. Meanwhile, a pair, left nameless, bid 7NT and made on a finesse for the QH. Ok, bridge is not fair.

The 7S Declarers all won the AC in hand, and drew two rounds of trumps with the A and K before trying the hearts. Is this correct? Then, after ruffing the third round of hearts, cashing the JS and trying to get back to Dummy with the KC, East ruffed...he had discarded a club on the third round of hearts.

 

Is this the correct line? Since four experts chose it, who am I to say? I will note that, of the four, only Kranyak cashed the AH early. This seems correct as a singleton QH would have been useful information.
