In a sectional pairs event, you are West.   Opponents are playing 2 over 1 & you are defending with standard count & attitude w/primary signal to the opening lead generally being attitude.

You lead the K, dummy plays the A, partner the 5 and declarer the 2.  

Poll Question:  What are partner's possible club holdings?   

Bonus Question (No poll -- but would love you comments):  Trick 2 is 2, 3, J, to your Q.  What should West do now?

 

This is a count situation: East is either singleton 5 or J75.
This is a count situation: if East is not a singleton, he could be J75 or J5 (choosing not to waste the J).
This is an attitude situation: East could be any holding -- partner may be asking you to find a shift if you get in again.
Whatever the situation, East can only be 5, J5, J75 (partner would have played the 7 if he holds doubleton 75.)
