Analysis by Craig Hemphill

An auction that will be almost universally duplicated among strong notrumpers. Weak notrumpers will play the 4 contract from the West side.

South should select the opening lead of the T from an interior sequence rather then seeking a ruff with the singleton club lead, which gains nothing over the expected trump trick. The spade lead will be a greater challenge for declarer, who will not have a blueprint to the club suit and may well go wrong.
