Leading through assistance. When to continue with trumps.
King of hearts (turn-up),
Queen of hearts,
Queen, knave of spades,
Queen of clubs.
8, 9, 10 of diamonds, Knave, 8 of hearts,
10 of clubs, Ace of clubs,
7 of hearts. King, 9 of spades.
Knave of diamonds,
Ace of hearts,
Ace, 8 of spades,
7 of diamonds.
Score, love-all. C assists.
REMARKS.--B leads the right through the assisting hand, C plays the ace,
D the seven, and A should play the king. If A plays the queen to give
information to his partner, B should at once continue with the eight of
hearts, and thus effect a euchre. If A plays the king, B's natural play
would be to lead the ace of clubs, whereby A and C make their point.
Few cases arise when you should conceal information from your partner,
but this is one of them.
