If West wins the second spade and “had a diamond to play, the suit would be breaking evenly. You could win, cash the last diamond … come to a ninth trick no matter …”

If the diamonds break evenly, per the text above, does that not already declarer give two spades + four diamonds + three clubs for nine tricks?

Hi Jim2
How do you plan to cash spade in hand? Quite an instructive column
