Partner leads the Ace and a spade all following. At trick 3 you play the King.

Partner plays the 2. Your defensive agreements are upside down attitude,

standard count. There is no special agreement agreement differentiating

signalling when leading the Ace or King in the middle of the hand. Obviously

you should play the other high diamond if it is going to cash, a spade otherwise.

Which one? Why?
