Matchpoints. West leads the 2. You win with dummy's jack as East plays the 6.  You get off to a bad start by leading a heart to the jack and queen. West continues with the 5, East plays the 3, and you win with the queen. You cash the K, and East pitches the 2.

On the assumption that East has at least five clubs, what is your best play for 11 tricks that does not risk holding yourself to fewer than 10?
