TIP OF THE WEEK: When you trying to establish a suit with King and 2 small in dummy and 4 cards in the suit in your hand; try leading low to the King.  If your RHO does not take the trick it is likely that LHO hold the Ace.  Now play low back to your hand and ducking.  You know LHO has the Ace, so play for it to be doubleton.
