* 1 in this sequence 4 is weaker than 3.
First trick K, 5,4,A…how do you play? As the lead isnt a trump, you have the opportunity to do 10 tricks with a cross-ruff (4 trumps each hand, A and A).
But beware of timing. It is imperative to start with the A and another spade before playing A and diamond ruffed.
If you reverse the order, you wont be able to ruff the last spade in the hand, due to lack of communication.
