Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Permissible enquiry?
I tend to lead passively against players who won't necessarily find the best line if left to their own devices, and aggressively against declarers who I think play the hands well. I'm also likely to pick the lead I think most likely to be made by the majority ...
Bridge Software?

"Director, declarer had no problem but did not give away his holding!"
It is complete insanity to ask a kibitzer. They often have an affiliation to the players they kibitz. And can completely side with their version of events without consciously lying. It is like asking a Steeler's fan if Franco Harris' "immaculate reception" really was a catch
