Leads ...

. . . provide significant clues about where key cards lie!

♠   ♣ 

There are only 3 reasons not to lead partner's suit . . .

1.  you don't hold any cards in their suit

2.  you have a fabulous suit of your own

3.  you don't want to partner them next week!

The Opening Lead Dilemma

He was told never to lead away from a King and so he never did.  One day he passed away and found himself in a bridge game. He was on lead against 4♠  holding: 

♠ Kx,  Kxx,  Kxxx, ♣ Kxxx.

Right then and there he knew where he was!
