Bridge Corner – April 20, 2017

Hello and welcome to the Tidewater Bridge Unit (TBU).
Opening Leads at Notrump – Quiz. The bidding has been: 1NT – 3NT. What do you lead when you hold:

1. ♠ A986 ♥ QJ95 ♦ 82 ♣ 875
2. ♠ Q972 ♥ 75 ♦ K2 ♣ A8763
3. ♠ QJ107 ♥76 ♦ K3 ♣ AJ1064
4. ♠ 72 ♥ QJ1073 ♦ K72 ♣ A82


1. Lead the ♥Q, the top of the broken sequence.

2. Lead the ♣6, fourth from your longest and strongest suit. You hope partner has help in clubs and declarer doesn’t have many clubs so you can take your long tricks.

3. Lead the ♣10 from the interior sequence. The ♠Q would also rate as a good lead. However, after you push out declarer’s ♠A and ♠K, you may win only one or two tricks. You hope the clubs will give you three or four tricks.

4. This is an easy one – lead the top of a sequence.
