X-Def 06

This deal comes from an On Line session on Monday 3/4/23. Some good lessons for the defence. But before I show you the full deal let me show you just the North hand and ask you some questions.

Dealer East NS Vul


After two passes, West opens 1H.

  1. What is your bid?
  2. If you bid 1S, and East bids 2H passed to you, and (presumably) you pass, what do you lead and why?

Your reasoning when answering these questions is important, so please give me some answers (mailto: villyn@xtra.co.nz), they will help you yourself and other readers as well. But of course you may want to keep your ‘secrets’ for yourself, why help your competitors?
