The Auction:

West North East South
1♠ 2♠ Pass 3NT
All Pass      

* Limit raise or better in clubs

You reach 3NT after West overcalled in spades. The 2 is led, East plays the King and you duck. East continues with the 3. Plan the play (clubs are 3-2, with West having 2).

You have only 8 tricks in the form of 5 clubs, 1 diamond, 1 heart and 1 spade. If you try for a diamond trick, the defense threatens to score 3 hearts, 1 spade and 1 diamond. You need clubs to be 3-2 for the contract to stand a chance. Since West is a favorite to hold the K for his overcall, you might be able to embarrass him by leading all your clubs.
