Honolulu BRP 7NT Lead Discussion
I know that. I'm proposing that when someone exposes an ace, it's as IF they led out of order. I thought I was being clear about that

HNL: Blue Ribbon A!D: MIA
I believe that the only question should have been "did the hesitation show an ace. If so, then defenders are sol. However, that's not the standard, and Ibelieve that with the original polling being legitimate, 7NT down 2. How they justified taking another poll stretches credulity
