Do Not underlead a non-trump ace in a trump contract. There are some conditions where you can justify under leading an ace but probably not at trick one. Until you can be very very certain that you will not be giving up a trick, don't do this. Your partner will be very happy to be able to know that you don't have an ace when you lead a suit against a trump contract. Harvey Bernstein
