How do you win the rook?
Start with R13, 12, 7, 10 until you get out the Rook. Then play out your smallest winning trump if the player to your right played a trump on the last trick. If he didn’t then you should play starting with the 14 on down. This gives your partner a chance to discard points if he runs out of trump.
