In Hand A your high cards are in your long suits. They will help you develop length tricks. This is a good hand for playing, so open 1H despite holding only 10 High Card Points. You also want a heart lead from partner should you end up defending. Hand B is a far more defensive hand, with HCPs concentrated in your short suits. You should pass. ——————————————————————————————————4/4—— Complete local events listings 440 BIG SCREEN p460 Go Green Digitiser TV guide TV tonight
