(69) Opening Leads: Leads in Partner's Suit

Hi All - 

This week we focus on a part of the game that might seem simple but is worth spending some time thinking about - leading partner's suit.  When I'm playing all over the country (against everyone from inexperienced to professional players)  I frequently declare hands where one defender leads the suit their partner opened, but when I ask about the lead I am amazed how many partnerships do not have good agreements about what partner is supposed to lead from different holdings.   

Our goal is to make certain that we have good understandings and agreements in these situations and that we make use of the information that is available to us.

As always, I hope you enjoy the lessons and feel free to email us with comments or questions.  If you have friends that you think would enjoy being added to the email list either send us their email or have them get in touch with us.

Take Care,
