West leads K and it is not difficult to see that South is threatened with the loss of a club and three heart tricks. He would like to be able to establish club winners without letting East in to play a heart through the King.
This is neatly accomplished by playing a low diamond for dummy on the first trick. Say that two high tumps from hand, then Ace and King of clubs and a club ruff, he returns to dummy with K and discards two hearts on the established clubs, making an overtirck.
