Hi Everyone!

I have my last card game question and I am having some trouble I'm hoping you guys can help me with!  So basically given four cards, I'm supposed to return the card with the biggest value.  
The question is:

In a trick-taking card game, four players each play one card in turn. The trick is taken by the highest card played in the suit of the first card. (Ace counts as the highest card, and for simplicity, there are no jokers, trump suits or bowers that some card games have.) Write a method String winningCard(String play) that returns the card that won the trick, when the play to the trick is given as an 8-character string such as “5hKc2dJh”. For this example hand, this method would return “Jh”.

Here is my code!

Please be sure to wrap any posted code in code tags.

Do you have any specific java programming questions?
