A curious question about a choice of lead
"The bidding is .....I think we can all agree that the ♥J seems the most likely lead. Partner leads .... out of turn. You lead " Given the condition that "we can all agree" I cannot think of any way of filling in the ellipses (except a barred heart lead, not applicable ...
Ruling help - the whole story
