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.
