Opening lead was the heart king, six, three, ace. Declarer played spade two, eight, ace and heart four. The club king was ruffed by north with the spade nine. Play of spade queen forced the spade king. The club jack was covered by queen, ace and north discarded the diamond four. Club eight, diamond four, ten and six. Declarer now out of winners played the diamond nine, ace, seven and ten. Sabourin led heart nine, seven, ten and eight.
