♠ QJ74
♣ AK1093
♠ -
♣ 542


The Auction:

West North East South
  1NT 2* Pass
2♠ Pass Pass 3
Dbl Pass Pass Pass

* Cappelleti

North started with 1NT, East overcalled 2– Cappelleti – 11 HCP, 4+ spades and 4+ hearts. South passed. West responded 2♠. North, who held four spades, passed. East passed too. South came to life and bid 3.

After a bit of thinking – as East/West had found a fit, an 8-card suit of spades, West doubled.

West led the 4. How can South win 9 tricks?

Vul: Both

Contract: 3Dbl by South.

South must obviously pay close attention to trump distribution.
