Challenge v BillyFung2
BilllyFung2 wrapped up a pedestrian Moysian 4, overcoming the 5-1 trump break.
GIB and I punted 6. Down one, on a trump lead. I win the challenge, if I fluke this contract but got nowhere near the successful line.
I've simplified the deal, weakening the N-S hands, to bring into stark relief, a remarkable line to make this precarious contract, at double-dummy, on any lead.
Can you see it?

Ruff a spade, club to the Q pick the trumps up and W comes down to 4 hearts, club A and a spade, when you play the last trump he has to divest himself of the spade, meaning you can duck a club to his bare A and score the K and 3 hearts.

CyberYeti and Manudude03 cracked it.
Win A, finesse 8, lead a to Q, finesse Q, ruff a , finesse T. and cash A, drawing East's last trump.
Now, finesse J and cash A, revealing the split.
This inspired play establishes the distribution of defenders' hands, which allows declarer to continue double-dummy (or claim).
West has been triple squeezed out of his s.
Finally, in this 4 card ending, A operates a positional-squeeze on West in the round suits, without the count.
Dummy keeps the suit that West abandons and declarer plays it.
