The auction has shown that the opponents have ended in 3NT with about 25/26 points ands partner has no more than 2/3 . Therefore partner has very little to contribute to the defence so getting your suits going will take some time. Therefore you need to lead your Spade Ace and see what is going on. Once you lead your Ace, your partner comes to life and encourages with the 8. Now you manage to take the first five tricks before declarer gets a look in.

With any other lead (such as 4th highest) declarer easily wraps up 9 tricks

You can also view  watch the following movie to see how the hand pans out. (You need bridgvu.exe programme  or BridgeBase programme on your machine already to view it ) and it is available free from
