Club Game.  Pairs.  Against a pro and a client, the client is declarer.  10 led to my ace.  I shift to the 6. If partner has king or queen of clubs I can give her a ruff or maybe ace of trump.  Declarer wins the king draw trump go to the board. 10 of clubs.  I can duck smoothly because I have count.  Long hesitation.  Runs the ten down one.  

The pro says if partner had the ace she would have played it the first round.  Would she?  We'll never know.  Kit conclusively showed high percentage play is low to the king then low to the queen.  If both opponents duck smoothly on the first round.  Maybe that happens in Kit's Korner but in real life?
