PUTTING OFF THE INEVITABLE

TEAMS.
DEALER NORTH, NONE VUL.

Sitting South, you pick up this 12-count:

♠ A7643
 A52
 A43
♣ 92

The auction:

WNES
111♠
Pass2Pass2
Pass2♠Pass4♠

When North repeats his Diamonds (2), your Ace third is worth its weight in gold, which explains your cue-bid of 2. When North tells you that he has three Spades, you logically leap to 4♠.
As was predictable, West leads a Heart, more precisely the 10…

Contract: 4 Spades.
Lead: 10. East plays the Queen.
