Defense From the Bermuda Bowl
If East attacks Spades immediately, it would not do well, but how many players do you know that would lead a Spade from QJx on the fly? Most will lead a diamond honor, and following a discouraging signal from West, switch to a round suit. That allows North to start ...
Defense From the Bermuda Bowl
Looks to me that 2 would be the best contract for N/S.
Bill March's lead problem: T854 Q953 K975 5
Partner has a limited hand, with little known about his distribution. Why give Declarer any assistance trying to figure out the hand? Let him do all the work by leading the one suit where he rates to have all the controls.
Banished to the Couch

The Huntsman Games
The Huntsman Games fall into a special class of games called SPC (State/Province/Country) games. They are not a true Sectional tournament, but rather a special championship allotted to award silver masterpoints. They are similar to the Illinois and British Columbia Senior Olympics bridge events.
"You got it wrong."
David, this comment definitely deserves a love button rather than just a like.
Deja Vu All Over Again
At least you didn't go down two on the second hand, following a club lead and then a ruff.
