Alje's Tips for Tops

Last week we looked at what to lead when neither you nor your partner entered the bidding. Naturally, your choice of lead will change if you or your partner bids a suit during the auction. So let’s look at what to lead in situations – your partner has bid but you haven’t supported his suit, and your partner has bid and you have supported his suit. 

First, suggested leads when partner bids and you don’t:

  • Lead low from 3 cards even if you have an honour (except the Ace)
  • Lead the top of a doubleton

If you have supported partner’s suit:

  • Lead the top of 3 or 4 low cards
  • Lead low from 3 to an honour (if you have the Ace, lead it)
  • Lead 4th best from 4 or more cards including an honour
  • Lead the top of touching honours

Finally – in order of preference – what to lead against a NT contract (assuming partner did not bid):

  • Fourth best (unless you have a 3-card honour sequence) from 5+-card suit
  • A 3-card honour sequence like KQJ or QJ9
  • A 4-card suit WITHOUT the Ace or King
  • A worthless 3-card suit
  • A worthless doubleton
  • A broken honour sequence
  • A 4-card suit WITH either the Ace or King

Note that unlike suit contracts, it’s fine to lead away from an Ace when defending a NT contract.
