Unlike the players in the USBC2 open final, you decide not to save against their slam, reasoning that opponents don't have to have guessed right.  You lead K and are pleased when it holds the trick.  Partner's 7 denies any clear preference between the blacks: he may give standard count in his choice of middling spot card if he thinks it appropriate.

What do you lead at trick two?
