South plays 6, lead small . (Sorry I do not know the auction)

You have a percentage line in both scenarios.

How can it possibly hurt to cash the 2nd trump, if trumps are 2-1 ? But yes, other than that you got it right Nige1 Posted Image

It NEVER helps to play any suit before starting to draw trumps. It might (rarely I admit) give a surprise ruff to the opps they do not deserve.

I think if trumps are 3-0 it is better to stop cashing trumps. K and ruff high. Now cash A and cash 2nd trump and 3rd trump ending in dummy and play 2nd club towards QJx in hand.

yes indeed that play caters to Kx clubs off side and only loses if the 2nd round of spades get ruffed a GREAT trade off. WHOknowswhathappened to Kx off side in my analysis when trumps break 30
