In the Monday afternoon club game, this hand was played 8 times, with half the pairs in 4 and half not.  None of the declarers lost to the queen of hearts.  At this particular table, the play went as you can see with the Next button, setting the stage for a trick that surprised both the declarer and one defender.  What was it?

As you can see, declarer (visualizing East with the 10 and 8 of clubs) advanced the 7, which won the trick - to the surprise of South and West alike.

Club bridge can be fun.
