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.

King, 7 of spades,

7 of hearts.



C



Score, A C one; B D three; and one game. A plays alone.



_First Trick._--B leads the ace of diamonds, D plays the ten, and A the

knave.



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

of clubs, and A plays the queen of diamonds.



_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.
