Dick on Defence 2

You are the fabulous, much missed since his death a few years ago, Lionel Wright. After RHO opponent opens 4D you double, merely card showing, holding this lot:

sKJ52
h1QJ964
d1AJ
cA10

All pass and there you are, defending 4D doubled. You are playing against the US, so it’d probably be best to kick off with a good lead….you wouldn’t necessarily get any second chances.

    I suppose the textbook lead would be a trump, but it’s not appealing to me. No lead appears to be without substantial risk. In that case, I’m inclined to bang out ace and a club.

    Ace of clubs, hoping for a ruff or promotion.

    i’m surprised that someone from the US plays a 4 of a minor opening as a pre-empt in a minor

    its a horrible problem – all we know for sure is that people leading the queen of hearts arent result merchants – in real life its probably an easy ace of clubs
