♠ A7
♣ 42
♠ 8632
♣ 73


The Auction:

West North East South
    1 Dbl
3♣ 3 Pass 4
Pass Pass Pass  

East started the auction with 1. South, feeling brave with 11 HCP and two 4-card majors, doubled for takeout. West called 3♣. North overcalled – 3, South declared 4.

Although North and South found a fit and have a 10-card suit of hearts, there seem to be four losers – one in spades, two in clubs and one in diamonds.  How can North win 10 tricks?

East leads the ♠K.

Dealer: East

Vul: none

Contract: 4by North

There is no way to avoid losing a trick in spades and two in clubs. North should concentrate on saving the diamonds.
