I would rank the 5 as aggressive.
The K super aggressive. If you suspect long clubs and stiff Q on your left. Funnily on this it works as a Merrimac.
Heart lead in the middle.
Dia lead passive.
On this hand other leads work better than the 5.

They would have done better this time than many in our club.

Isn't East more likely to have 4 hearts and 3 spades just he did here? Making a spade lead questionable.

East is in a terrible position.
Ironically, West will get more than 1 trick by leading the K than the 5.
Or consider not leading spades at all.

My opp was declarer here. He ended up with 10 tricks. So I tried to construct a thought process that he might have tried at trick 1.

I was sympathizing with your comment, not disagreeing.
Are you comparing people that would lead the 5 to LOL's?

I was hoping this would be about the defense and declarer play. Can I ask indulgence for this to be about south in 3N however the auction was?

Sorry about that.
It might be overwhelming looking at this with a naked eye.
But I think it's rewarding and useful.

LOL. Isn't partner likely to have more hearts than spades?
If you're going to be squeezed on dummy's clubs, it might be nice to have spades to discard rather than dias or hearts.

Could 3 reasonably be natural - doubt about spade stopper for NT?

I'm definitely not passing 3.
Now somebody else can sort out the rest of this.

I don't like this auction much.
Was 4 a slam try?

I think it is a mistake to not bid 1N immediately on this hand. Funny thing about bridge sometimes: you can get very interesting results trying mitigate possibly something that you have done not the best way you could have.

Lynn, I think it is hard to post certain comments without coming across as being pompous.

I'm voting for guard.
I don't think it's really clash.
Or stepping stone. Sorry just endplay.

This problem doesn't look at all like it's asking Lynn how high and mighty he thinks he is for abstaining.

People present polls.
Yes of course something may have happened due to something less than ideal.

If everything was ideal, there would be no polls.

I think this poll deserves an answer other than “I don't make mistakes and others shouldn't either”.

Opening 2 was awful.
However, partner has no suit to bid?
FG. Where?
Looks like masochism to pass.

What kind of game is this???
I have tell the opps exactly what I'm doing.
I promise to the opps instead of my partner.
They have no better rights than my partner?
Ed, do I have quit this game to be never subjected to the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard of?

Partner is bidding 3 looking for a fit or somehow just temporizing so we can bid 3N? Or did 3 endplay him?

Lho must have some pts somewhere besides the KJ.

Extra values?
Why? Dangerous to think we might not have a place at the 2 level over 2.
Surely club shortness is enough for partner's t/o double.
