Minibridge
Lose that Ace now
N-S have 27 points and E-W have 13 points(total=40)
S chooses game in No Trumps and needs to make 9 tricks
W leads K Clubs (top of sequence)
S must be brave and lose the A S right away.
S then makes 3S, 2H, 3D and 1 club trick=9
Cross ruffing -minibridge
E-W have 27 points, N-S have 13 points.
E-W choose Game in Hearts.
They need 10 tricks, so can only lose 3 tricks.
They use their trumps separately. E ruffs clubs and W ruffs spades.
This is one of the few times when you do not take trumps out.
You need them all yourself.
