A A marlowei: dont like the choice much at these colors, and not keen on going for a ruff with natural trum tricks. weakness of the sades is a big concern for assing the X also.. K.... js_ch: it coudl be imorant to cash the clubs now.. js_ch: orth has seen his artner lay the lowest two ossible diamonds on the first two rounds - surely a club signal marlowei: not that he needed a signal to know clubs was the hoe of the defense..

T.. #1 :: T,,A, # ::,K,, # :: A,,, marlowei: no doubt the orous suit was a concern for. it should also be added that having the ace in your suit is not ideal for reemtion, because it dramatically alters your J..

A.. Q marlowei: on the auction he can assume D ace onside, and on the lack of club lead he can assume does not have a stiff. so he can lay trums and then a low club js_ch: Bakhshi can lace artner with the K and one other high card. If the K he might need to cash quickly - 1 -

13 marlowei: to trums in hand i mean.. A..

He might lay clubs before all the trums are drawn to allow for that js_ch: agreed.. A js_ch: although it is not without risk as Kxx of clubs could win and give his artner a ruff.. Q.. T A marlowei: not sure why he would xcash ace first js_ch: does this have the same risks but gain with a singleton K? marlowei: there is no risk in losing to a stiff king once two trums are drawn....
