Hi Bobby,

A few weeks ago my partner spurned such a “rookie” play at T1 in a suit contract (with Kx oppsite 10xx in hand or something similar) and played for RHO to get it wrong with AJxx(x) r similar by ducking. LHO, a keen but weak player, had underled an Ace at Trick 1!

I saw the funny side rather mre than he did.

Hi Iain,

It should never be miss understood that the one player there is no winning defense against is your own partner.
