Can we agree that regardless of the rights and wrongs of the theory, it is wrong for anyone to ask this question just before a crucial guess. It places the defender in a totally invidious position.

Maybe convention cards should have a box for leading style to avoid being asked at difficult moments.

Need to force declarer so he can't enjoy long hearts

Speaking personally, I would feel very uncomfortable getting a top in this way. After all I already had two shots at a good result. First defend better, and second it was pure luck that declarer held three clubs. As to defending, it was obvious what had occurred when dummy went down. Unless the opening lead was terminal to the defence's chances, they had enough opportunity at the time. All in all a rather sorry tale, compounded by the lawyers blathering on above. Give me justice anytime.

Is it any wonder that so many events are decided by committee. What a shame.

Hi Nicolas. Many thanks for the analysis, it was fascinating. If you have anything else, I would love to hear it, either on the site or by private message, I leave that to your discretion. Further I promise to buy a copy when next in the States. All the best.

Good to know my leading is bad enough to avert suspicion. I assume Robson is better than me, given the angle of your post Nic. I suspect someone who led trumps more often (not my style) would give less tricks away, but would it be effective in the long run. Anyway, well done on the research.

It is dangerous to get too excited about opening leads, as a passive leader will “find” partner more often than an aggressive one. With or without help.

Hard to imagine one would reopen with 3S on that

If he has AKQxxxx, Qxxx, K10, - I think you have to discard. A ruff and any exit allows declarer to draw one trump, ruff a heart and lead to D10. A discard cuts off dummy. On a fourth heart, you go in with SJ and get out with CA. Bizarre.
