Case Ix








A

Queen of clubs (turn-up),
Right and left bowers,
Queen, knave of diamonds.

D B

9 of clubs, Ace, king of clubs,
10 of diamonds, Ace, king, 7 of diamonds.

_Second Trick._--B leads the seven of diamonds, D trumps with the nine

_Third Trick._--No matter what D leads, A is euchred.

B here makes the coup by recognizing what A must have for a trump-hand,
and leads his small and losing diamond, making it imperative for his
partner to ruff, thereby putting the lead through A, and establishing
the euchre.
