 PLEASE NOTE THIS CORRECTION:

 After West's 2S opening, partner bid 4S.  All passed.

Out-of Turn Lead: the D3.

Your choice?

1. You may accept the lead from the wrong hand and see dummy before playing in proper sequence from your own hand.

2. You may accept the lead and become the dummy. (If declarer exposes one or more cards, he must spread his hand, becoming dummy).

3. You may require the lead – one time only from the proper opening leader – of the suit that was improperly led, and the penalty card is returned to the offender’s hand.

4. You may prohibit the lead – from the proper leader for as long as he holds the lead – of the suit that was improperly led, and the penalty card is returned to the offender’s hand.

5. You may leave the improperly led card on the table to remain a penalty card. The opening leader can lead as he chooses. If the correct opening leader retains or regains the lead, however, and his partner still has the penalty card, you will, each time before the defender leads, have the choice of exercising option 3, option 4 or option 5.
