Note the score. Would you go alone? What do you think about the 4th lead?

Please help me. How do you post the picture of the original hands?

Edit:I have uploaded the image

Please help me. How do you post the picture of the original hands? I usually use an iPad.

Down 9-7 vs random opponents, yes I go alone and go for the gusto. However, in our game, where I think everyone donates, calling is the best play. I made the same mistake a week ago or so. I went alone down 9-7 or 9-6 with a very weak hand and the instant I did it I realized this is not the game texture to make such a play. I was lucky I didn't go set. That said, even in this game texture I would still go alone with strong hands that can't go set, the kind of hands your P can't help you, just in case, and also to keep S1 on his toes to make sure he keeps donating.

The 4th lead is unequivocally correct. There's still a higher trump out in the wild, and spades has already been led. A spade double lead has a great chance of bringing that higher trump out or walking.

When Don double led the spade, I played off becuz it was still logically possible for my P to have the 9C in her hand, and it's possible she could have the AS altho she shouldn't have that card becuz if she did the correct play for her would've been to double lead that card on the 2nd trick (but you never know). Playing off was our team's only chance at a euchre.

Don't know the answer to this one. Hopefully Don helps out here.

I have added more info on uploading images on Apple devices in the annoucement above.

I totally agree with Wes's assessment of the hand. At 9 to 7 I had to try. Nothing to lose and a win if successful.

What position am I in here? If I'm We-South, then yeah, I'm gonna try this as a loner. If I'm north then no.

If I'm West (I'm guessing that's the position in question) then it's a toss-up. I probably won't try it.

In this particular scenario, it looks like north is the one going alone. No, I won't try it. That's a pretty weak hand.

Dlan (Dl-East) went alone as the dealer down 9-7 with:

(Card_K-C) (Card_J-C) (Card_10-C) (Card_10-S) (Card_9-S)
