The Club suit is the established trump suit. When South leads the Ace of Clubs, South discards from dummy a red-suit loser, either a Heart or Diamond.

East becomes squeezed in three suits and must discard either a Heart or a Diamond.

When South next leads the King of Clubs, West discards a card from the suit, which his partner has not discarded. If East discards a Heart, then West must discard a Diamond. If East discards a Diamond, then West must discard a Heart.

South discards the second red-suit loser from the dummy.

East discards from the red suit which he has already unguarded, either a Heart or a Diamond, but becomes trump-squeezed by a lead to that Ace by South to that red-suit.
