A wise man once said it's not enough to give good advice, you have to follow it as well.

yeah s3 advice is 'hit high lead low' no matter who led or called, esp on 2nd round action. every chair had a callable hand in my eyes, with only 0-2 on the scoreboard.

As I analyze this hand,I see things differently:
R1S1-R1S4 passing is in order.

R2S1 passes a good order in hearts, but they have a euchre hand in red. So, passing and playing for 2 seems reasonable. Spades (Next) is weak but the Ah provides significant protection from a Next Loner.

R2S2 passing is the most questionable play. 3 trump in Green, a Green Singleton Ace and a void is a +EVo.

R2S3 pass is appropriate. R2S4 ordering in Reverse is a good order, IMO.

Street 1 the As lead is appropriate and all plays are forced.

Street 2 the Qc lead makes sense, play the 2nd green suit. But, I like the Singleton “Black” Ah lead, in this situation. The Singleton A either walks or draws a trump.

Street 3 S3’s 9d is debatable. Playing the R makes sense seeing all the cards. I don’t know if it is all that obvious, in the game situation. That is above my “play-grade.” Please advise.

Street 4’s play of the L is debatable. A sweep has been stopped. Why not play low? S1 needs P to take a trick or hope that their Qd is boss.

My conclusion is the only non-defensible play is R2S2’s pass. The other plays are debatable or there are important card-playing strategies, that deserve additional explanations.

Yep, all that plus:

In a hand where you hold the left and the maker doesn't play the right while having the opportunity to do so, there is a strong chance your partner has that other bar.
