In that kind of situation you should start by ruling out very bad leads. A spade lead (declarer's suit) is highly likely to concede a cheap trick So will a club lead (dummy's suit) if, for example, dummy has CA-Q-10-x-x and declarer CK-x. A singleton trump is unattractive, so that only leaves a diamond. Even though leading an unsupported Ace is dangerous, DA is the lead least likely to be fatal. ——————————————————————————————————2/6—— It's Your Life! 410 TELETEXT BRIDGE BY ELENA JERONIMIDIS EDITOR OF BRIDGE PLUS GoGreen Digitiser TV guide TV tonight
