    If playing on cross-ruff lines, cashing only one club before leading towards the second high club makes on some layouts where west has a singleton club.

    Bill’s line requires spades not to be 4-0 and clubs 4-2, but doesn’t require a low diamond ruff to hold.

      Not quite. If spades are 4-0, I will make if clubs are 3-3.

      Still, your line looks better, needing practically nothing? You could possibly switch to my line if East plays the diamond klng at trick 1.

    My trump suit seems to have some quality. I ruff a diamond at trick two and cash the CAK, then HA, diamond ruff, heart ruff small, diamond ruff, heart ruffed with the SA to make sure of getting the last diamond ruff, and concede a trick to the S10. I can’t figure out the probabilities, but this looks good.
