      Hi Ace,

      Now that would be a neat trick: especially since it's not your
      lead. ;)

      Lol. But if we're worried about this, we shouldn't go alone from 1st
      with JJAK-K, because we might lead the offsuit K by accident. ;)

      Yes, a L lead by your P could be used to snuff out a protected A in
      the opps' hands. But this is also true in the RKQ-A-A hand. No

      Yes, but this is also true in the RKQ-A-A hand. No difference.

      But it doesn't! In none of the scenarios you outlined above would
      having the aces benefit you more than having the kings. Any trump
      will kill an off A just as easily as it kills an off K.

      What you seem to be missing is that if your P has the aces (which is
      where you claim his difference in help lies), they will be removed
      from play when you go alone, thus promoting your kings to boss in
      their respective suits. You won't need your P's aces!

      I'm anxious to see it. If I get a chance, I'll run some more today.
