Lesson Nine: Promoting the Tricks

Knocking out High Card.

Our Contract is 9 No Trump. We have 2 Hearts, 3 Diamonds, 1 Club, do you see where we can get 3 more? In Spades!

West will play Queen of Hearts, we can win with King of Hearts and play a Spade right away!

If we don’t play Spade suit right away – we might loose Control and opponents would be able to promote extra tricks for themselves.

At trick two, we should play King of Spade. Do not afraid to loose that trick at the beginning – you would have to loose it sooner or later.

If no one played an Ace of Spades, we should continue playing with Queen of Spades and Jack of Spades until West would be forced to play his/her Ace. But now we already have 3 Spades for total 9 tricks.
