Declarer wins the SK, crosses to hand and runs the CJ. East wins and returns a spade and the contract makes.

With that as a background, imagine you are a junior on the USA U-26 team sitting east and your NPC (that would be me) is declarer in 3N after opening 1N and partner overcalling 2S. The opening lead is the SQ, declarer wins the SK, crosses to hand and plays a club to the J and your queen.
