In 4, East-West can hold their losers to one spade, one heart, and one club depending whether the K is on or not, but they have to be careful in crossing between hands. On a diamond lead, East wins the stiff A and declarer’s primary goal is to set up the club suit to pitch heart losers.

The theme of this hand is to set up the side suit and then draw trump. If we draw trump first, we’ll be unable to handle ruffing losers and setting up tricks. So low spade to the king and then club ten. We’ll see everyone follow (if we lose this trick, we need trumps to break). North will play second hand low. It doesn’t matter if West has at least two clubs, but if West has only one, the king gives up one trick. Another club to the jack. Now because we haven't lost a club we can afford a safety play in spades. If spades are 3-2 we’re going to lose just one spade after playing the spade Ace. If they are 4-1 however, if we cash the A, the hand with four spades might be able to ruff the A with their boss trump and pull dummy’s last trump. We can guard against this by playing the A from dummy before the A. If South follows, we pitch our heart. If South ruffs, they’re ruffing with a high trump, so we still pitch a heart. This line loses an extra trick if trumps are 3-2 the wrong way (doubleton spade hand getting a ruff), but safeguards against 4-1 spades. Taking a club finesse is also dangerous if trumps are 3-2, club finesse fails, and North-South play heart to the ace and heart ruff with the short trump hand ruffing the heart. But the auction makes it seem very unlikely that the short heart hand also has short spades.

Four-three Moysian fits are delicate. Maintaining trump suit control is always a theme in suit contracts, so with one less trump than ideal, one must be extra careful. On this particular hand, trump control will mean making sure North-South don't get ruffs in the side suits. Holding five low diamonds, South will make a 4th best diamond lead; it’s passive and partner might be over-ruffing dummy at some point during the defense.
If South had started with five good diamonds, they would consider a trump lead. Declarer will win the ace. Having control in all the suits and no clear entry to the board, declarer should opt to attempt to draw trump rather than allow the defense to set up ruffs in one of declarer’s side suits by playing A and Q at tricks two and three. South will win the K and return their highest diamond (suit preference for hearts). North will win the K and play back 4th best heart to South’s ace. South will play back a low diamond, East will pitch a club, North will ruff with their last trump. East pitches because if North has a trump left, it's higher than the 8 on the board. Now North will return a low club and force East to guess the club position. If they play low, the defense will score two clubs and a club ruff for seven tricks. If declarer guesses to play the king, the defense will score no more club tricks, instead just one more trump trick for a total of five tricks. East will play their last diamond, pitching dummy’s last club. Now, a low club to ruff on the board. East will play the KQ pitching the remaining club from their hand. Dummy is now forced to play another heart which will promote the trump in South's hand. It’s easy to make a mistake by playing a heart at trick two instead. If East does this, South will go up with the ace and continue diamonds to their partner’s king. North will lead back a low club, forcing declarer to try to guess the club position. If they go wrong and play low, the defense will score a total of eight tricks. One heart, one diamond, two diamond ruffs, two clubs, two club ruffs. Playing a heart at trick two isn't just wrong because it works so poorly on this hand, there are many layouts where you'd survive playing a heart; it’s wrong to do so because you gain nothing and potentially lose a lot.
