FORCING DEFENCE

A strategy whereby the defenders keep playing cards that declarer must ruff until declarer runs out of trumps and the defenders gain control.

South plays in 5. West leads a spade at trick one and continues spades after getting in with the A and ♣K. Having started with two trumps more than West, ruffing three times means that declarer ends up with one trump fewer and the contract fails.
