You play Muiderberg ('Dutch') twos, i.e. Lucas twos where the second suit has to be a minor for both 2 and 2. As dealer your hand looks perfect for a vulnerable 2 - at least 5-5, ok intermediates and honours all in the two suits. Unfortunately partner's hand leaves much to be desired. There we are.

This is a multiple teams movement at a local club night, so IMPs scoring.

Having found yourself here, how do you mitigate the damage? You get the lead of the diamond 7 (standard leads). How do you plan the play?
