West leads the H5: four - eight - ace and South returns the C7: three (reverse count) - king - ace. How would you continue as East?

After the auction given and the heart lead to the ace and club to the king and ace, East, switched to the D3!

West took the DA and returned the D7. South rose with the DK and played the S7 to the jack and queen. West played another diamond and East ruffed with the SK. South over-ruffed, but now West's S9 was the setting trick. Nicely done, Bobby Wolff, East. The defence was not found at the other table.
