A favourite maxim of card play that, following the lead of a small card, the second hand to play to the trick should play his lowest card of the suit led.

If South leads low, West must duck, saving the ace to capture the queen. Equally, if the lead is low from the North hand, East must play low or South could cover the jack with the queen and later finesse the nine.
