Who Wins Trick 1? Part 2


quiz-pic

"Thank you partner, play low." This simple phrase is the bane of my teaching existence. "Thank you, play low" means that you haven't bothered to make a plan because you're going on autopilot. In this quiz (you can take part 1 here), think before you play or you'll regret it. 

You are South, declaring on the auction below. The opening lead is the ♠2 (You ask, and they are playing fourth-best leads). What is your play at trick one?
