Case Viii








A

9 of diamonds (turn-up),
Knave of hearts,
Queen of spades,
Queen, 9 of hearts.

D B

Ace, queen, 10 of clubs, Ace, king, 10 of diamonds,
King of hearts, Ace, 10 of spades.
9 of spades.

C

Queen, 7, 8 of diamonds,
Ace, 8 of hearts.

Score, game-all and four-all.

_First Trick._--B very properly orders up, and leads the ace of
diamonds; C follows with the seven, D throws the ten of clubs, and A
takes with left bower.

_Second Trick._--A leads queen of spades, B covers with the ace, and C
wins the trick with the eight of diamonds, D playing the nine of spades.

_Third Trick._--C leads the eight of hearts, D plays king of hearts, A
plays nine of hearts, and B throws ten of spades (not a sure winner) on
his partner's trick.

_Fourth Trick._--D leads ace of clubs, A ruffs with the nine of
diamonds, B covers with the ten, and C wins the trick and scores a
euchre with the queen of trumps.

REMARKS.--C makes the coup by leading the eight instead of the ace of
hearts. C recognized the fact, after the fall of the cards in the second
round, that B must have had three trumps to order with, and they must
have been the ace, king, ten; and after he had taken the second trick
he must throw the lead into D's hand, thereby making his queen against
the king, ten.
