Re: Spades-palooza [Dial-up Warning. Many images within.]
Only higher spades will beat a spade. Did you perhaps accidentally miss that one was a spade because clubs was the leading suit?

Think of it this way: Cards are valued:

(cards not of leading suit and not spades) < 2-10 of leading suit < J Q K A of leading suit < 2-10 of spades < J Q K A of spades.

And, of course, removing the last two bits if spades is the leading suit :)

edit: removed incorrect "n't"
