A lead problem from the Manchester League, St Titus vs Team Mayhem.
Love All. IMPs Dealer South
North South were playing Precision so one spade showed five spades and a maximum of 15 points. Four clubs was a control bid agreeing spades and four hearts was a control bid denying a diamond control. What do you lead?
The St Titus player led the six of diamonds. The full deal was as below.
Can South be blamed for suspecting a singleton lead? She won the diamond ace and played a club to hand, relying on the trump finesse to make her contract. One off and 14 IMPs to St Titus.
