[cardplaycomments]|1|Partner's !s6 will be fourth highest of their longest and strongest suit. Play the !s10, not the !sJ or the !sQ. Partner will notice that your !s10 drew declarer's !sA. When they win the !dA, they should play a low spade, then you will take four spade tricks and the !dA, but if they play the !sK, you must unblock your !sQ, to enjoy four spade winners.
