This was the play to the first 4 tricks

A  low low low

Q low low

A  low  club pitch low

Q  low  club pitch K

A  low  low  ?

Right or wrong you've cut defensive communication and a club guess by shedding your clubs on the hearts

Is it best to ruff the A and play A and a spade or

pitch a diamond on the A, win the next lead in dummy and play for the K onside doubleton

If your Flt A LHO leads a trump you are probably going down.  He would only make this lead if it was right.

 

The line you've taken has identified LHO with the A, K and A.  Would LHO have passed the opening bid if also holding the K?
