Brain-teaser for 42 Players

Luis Flavio Nunes, webmaster for, a Brazilian 42 web site written in Portuguese, contributed this sample 42 hand puzzle:

You bid 31 and won the bid.  Six is the trump.

After three tricks, you and your partner have scored 8 points, and your opponents none.

These are the unplayed dominos going into the fourth trick:
Your hand:        
Left opponent:
Your Partner:
Right opponent:  

It's your lead.  How can the remainder of this hand be played so you make your bid?
(There's only one way.)

Give up?  Here's the solution.

Do another brain teaser?

Thanks, Luis.
