Your 1 opening is precision style, 2+ diamonds, 11-13 if balanced.

You and partner and RHO are strong players, LHO is a novice - you may feel that is confirmed by the 3 bid, but I have no comment. That is simply what happened.

You play Rusinow leads, 4th best from interest, UDCA. You lead the queen of hearts (agreed lead from this holding, partner's signal likely to be upside down attitude for the jack). Trick one goes Q 2 5 3.

PLEASE READ WHAT FOLLOWS: I am going to try something different, with a bit of the honor system involved (that means no cheating!) If it works badly then consider it a failed experiment.

If you would play anything other than another high heart now, please scroll to the bottom fast so you don't see anything, and choose a trick 2 answer below before reading any further. If you would continue with a high heart, scroll down slowly to see trick 2.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Trick 2: Heart ace (or king if you prefer), 8 4 6. If you would play anything other than another high heart now, please scroll to the bottom fast so you don't see anything, then choose a trick 3 answer below before reading any further. If you would continue with a high heart, scroll down to the end to see trick 3.
