With a seat 2 order I'd favor leading the clubs. You don't want a potential stopper to get trumped in by seat 2 or Dealer while either or is throwing off making the rest of your potential off suit bad as well as your partners.

I like the trump from dealer showing the Queen first. Since the 10 of diamonds was ordered up. I also like the Ace of diamond lead back. To force out the left or right and tell your partner you still have the 10 of diamonds back for a last trump. S1 plays the left, seat 2 plays the right. Then leads back trump. I honestly don't like a trump lead back here from Seat 2. If he had a suit that's been played potential boss card or an unplayed Ace. I would then favor the trump lead. Here you pretty much essentially strip your partner the rest of trump out of their hands. With coming back in Jack of spades, it's not going to take a trick so Seat 2 gives up on getting two in the hand and settles for one in my opinion.

What do I think, opponents had six trumps and still only made one point.

It made no sense at all for S2 to lead the KD on trick 3. Why, because S1 has no more trump and all he did was drain trump from his partner. The lead was the Spade on trick 3 for a SWEEP.

I think the questionable plays were covered 100%

Let’s consider a Tc lead by S1. Should S2 play 2nd hand low and throw off his Js? Or is trumping and leading his Right, the better play?

Okay, lets roll the tape again:
AH is led and after S4 wins the first trick, he should have led his TD. All all would have been a Sweep. Leading the AD to trick 2 with both bowers unknown was a major mistake. You know that at least one bower will be played.

2nd hand low play, I don't see that with this hand.

Yes on a club lead ditch the jack of spades. If a heart lead trump it.

dealer showed they had 3 trumps. why s2 leads trumps on 3rd trick is mystery and cost a sweep chance.

I wouldn't have led that ace on the first trick. Second seat is very likely to be void in next and if he's not then the dealer probably is. Leading the AH is just asking to get trumped and lose your only potential stopper.

I would have led the 10C hoping that the Ace would fall, giving me two boss cards.
