Opening Lead Out Of Turn - Laws 50D, 53 and 54
If the wrong defender makes an opening lead, the TD offers declarer the choice to accept the lead or treat the card as a major penalty card. All options should be explained before the choice is made, and declarer may not consult partner when choosing.
If declarer wishes to accept the lead, there are two choices:-
Note - if declarer begins to spread their hand after the lead and exposes any card, they must accept the lead and become the dummy.
If declarer does not wish to accept the lead, s/he may treat the card led as a major penalty card.
