Sometimes we have multiple non-equivalent threat cards, and we can finesse against multiple opponent cards.

Here our queen is a threat against the king, and out ten is a threat against the jack.

Lead 4 and play 10.

Unless East produced the K, later lead the 6 and play Q.

We will make 2+ tricks in the suit unless East has both missing honours – a 75% chance.
