Warning! This is a really tough squeeze. This hand occurred September 13, 2006 in club play. The play, as described, occurred at my table.
The contract is 3. You may pretend you are in 5 -- that makes things more interesting. The opening lead is the king of hearts. You win the ace.
You play a club towards your hand and the singleton king appears on your right. You draw trumps. Now you lead a heart towards the jack. Lefty rises with the queen and leads the ace of diamonds, which you ruff. The situation is now
If you go to the board and ruff a diamond, which doesn't hurt and might help, nothing interesting happens.
