If a player does not have A♠, K♠, or Q♠, it is to that player's advantage to lead spades to try to force Q♠ onto another player. This is also referred to as "smoking the Lady/Queen", in reference to the combat action of creating smoke in a closed area so that any enemy combatants hiding there would be forced to come out into the open (the Q♠ is forced to be played by its bearer, thus causing the Q♠'s points to be taken by that bearer, and thus evaded by the player actuating the smoking). A player who has A♠ or K♠ but not Q♠, and with a large number of other spades, may feel that he is insulated from being forced to play A♠ or K♠ in any subsequent smoking play, and thus could also participate in smoking. Even the player that has the Q♠, provided he similarly has a lot of other spades may decide to "smoke himself" to empty all the other players of their spades, thus ironically insulating himself from being smoked in the future – or perhaps to get the game into the situation in which another player(s) has a "dry" (i. e. , solitary) spade that is A♠ or K♠, in which case he could start a trick with Q♠ in full knowledge that some other player has this dry A♠ or K♠ and will be forced to play it, taking the Q♠'s points.
