East cashes a thirteenth spade. How do you discard from your own hand and from dummy? ,A problem will arise only if West has J x x x of diamonds. If East has the four diamonds there will be a marked finesse, so you must be reluctant to throw 0 10. A club looks safe, but there is a drawback in this because you must expect the Ace of hearts t o be forced out on the next lead. Then if clubs are 4-1 the suit will be blocked. The card you can spare best is a heart. Presumably' West has K J, so your V Q is not a valuable card in any event.
If you duck a club East may win and return a club, knocking out the Ace. If you give up a spade, discarding a club instead of ruffing, West will play a third spade, extinguishing the onecard menace. A throw-in, then? lead J at trick eleven, forcing a return from the King of clubs. No, that does not work either, because after you have played off your winners in the red suits (necessary t o arrive at the three-card ending) you will have no entry t o dummy. In the end you may decide t o play West for a doubleton King of clubs.
However, you ate in a grand slam, so this is not the moment t o play without looking round every corner. West would harhly have led from Q 10 9 against a grand slam in notrumps, so you must consider whether there could be any advantage in going up with 4 K, t o improve your entry position. A problem will arise only if East has four diamonds; if West has 0 J 10-x x you can pick them up-by the standard safety play of beginning with a low diamond t o the Ace. If East has the four diamonds, you will have at best twelve tricks on top, assuming as you must that both Queen finesses are right.
