In brief: Mitral valve

Mitral closes first followed by tricuspid (s1) then aortic followed by pulmonic (s2).

In brief: Triscupid valve

As the heart contracts, the tricuspid valve is able to close before the mitral valve because it faces a lower systemic venous pressure compared to a slightly higher pulmonary venous pressure faced by the mitral valve.
