Problem


The Auction:

 

West North East South
    1 Pass
1 Pass 1NT 2♣
2 3♣ Dbl all pass

 

This was a competitive auction, although the final contract is a humble partscore. East opened with 1, West responded with 1, North passed and East bid 1NT. As no one is vulnerable you seized the opportunity to chime in and bid clubs. West answered with 2, North raised to 3♣ and East doubled.

West leads the ♠4. Plan the play to score nine tricks.

Clubs will supply six tricks and as you have two aces, you only need to find one extra trick. Setting up spades or hearts should provide this trick.
