No, it makes sense. I don't need to see any more examples.

I supposed it was something where you had to know your partner and how they play. But, also, I see where the situations you and Dustin presented would give you an opportunity to take more tricks.

I guess my comments are based on pick-up partner playing, because that's mostly what I've done over the past couple of years.

Thanks for your time and patience.

Your Pard....

May simply hold a singleton K. Play under and SEE if Pard leads out w/ another D. If not, it was the only D they had.

This will put 'you' in a position to lead D once you get the lead and hopefully P will throw off leaving their Spades to be used later in the hand to effect a set.

u cant conquer a free man, the most u can do is kill him.
