I wonder whether it is better for Vorhand to lead H8 or maybe S8 to the first trick rather than playing a trump? Maybe this improves the chance of making Schneider? Vorhand will still win the game however bad the distribution.

At our table Martin simply announced Grand Hand without waiting for any bidding. We could have insisted on going through the normal bidding process, which could in theory have allowed the other two players to pass information by their choice of bids, but we decided to allow Martin's spontaneous annoucement and recorded it as a bid of 72.

I also thought H8 lead gives a better chance of Schneider. I wouldn't lead S8 because I may need it to try and win a trick if H8 concedes 21pts.
