You are SOUTH declaring 3NT.

However, you receive the 4 lead from EAST.

Your options are:

  • Accept the lead, and either person can declare (presumably you select which hand is dummy? Directors, anyone?)
  • Reject the lead, demand a heart lead from WEST
  • Reject the lead, ban a heart lead from WEST.
  • (Added) Allow West to lead anything, and have 4 as a (major) penalty card.
Accept lead; Be declarer
Accept lead; Be dummy
Reject lead; Demand heart
Reject lead; Ban heart
Allow West to lead anything, keep 4 as penalty card
Correction, found another option. Good to learn the rules.

Sorry, to answer polls. Registered users can vote in polls, and can also browse other users' public votes! and participate in the discussion.
