As South you're playing in 6NT. Lead 10 ♣.

 

6 5

Q 7 6

A K 9 7 3

K 6 5

 

 

A Q 3

A 3

Q J 8 6

A Q J 3

 


Solution:

 

With 11 tricks off the top, your chances are with ♠ and ♥.

 

If you rely on finessing the ♠ to the Q, you'll go off if the K is off side.

Rather, play a small towards the Q; this is an indirect finesse.

 

If the ♥K is with West, you'll make 12 tricks;

if not, then you've still got a chance with the ♠ finesse.

 

Give yourself a 75% chance rather than 50%.
