Step 8: Winning a Hand With a Trump Card
This step explains how to win a hand with a trump card that is not the right or left bower.
Example 1: Diamonds are trump and led. Players 2 and 3 follow suit and also lay diamonds, while the dealer does not have a diamond and plays a club instead. Because player 2 laid the highest trump card, they win the trick.
Example 2: Clubs are trump and diamonds are led. Players 2 and 3 both lay diamonds to follow suit. The dealer, however, does not have a diamond and trumps with the ten of clubs to win the trick.
