Poll - 2nd round, your partner in 3rd seat names trump

Post by Dlan » Mon Dec 10, 2018 11:18 am

Your sitting in first seat. On second round bidding, your partner names CLUBS trump.

You hold (Card_A-D) (Card_K-D) (Card_K-S) (Card_10-H) (Card_10-C)

What is your first lead and why?

Are there there situations where you would change your answer depending on the turn-down?

Maybe I'm missing something here but that's what I would do.

partner makes trump, you lead trump if you got one-------always! It's the play with the highest probability to a sucessful result. Any missing information from the senario in question is irellevant. Trust and respect your partners call from 3rd seat. At least once! lol

Lead the 10-C. You always lead trump when 3rd seat calls in first round. In second, it's not as critical but still I'd generally lead trump since that's the best thing to do when your team calls anyway (to pull the trump out of the enemy hands).

Depending on the other factors that you feel are important, if there are any, lead trump, especially if you are hoping to make any ace or aces you have helpful to your partner, then lead trump to your partner and give him a chance to rely on you for a high card contribution to the effort, later. If your play doesn't work out then blame your partner for some imaginary wrongdoing that anyone should have been able to see lurking in the future. Then run and hide at game's end unless your team wins, in which case, you
explain to your partner that you were on CRACK and didn't mean what you said.
