Here’s the rub, you have to pay attention to the card your partner signals !!!!!!!! Partner can SIGNAL THEIR BRAINS OUT TO NO AVAIL IF YOU DO NOT PAY ATTENTION “ESPECIALLY WHEN THE FIRST SIGNAL GIVEN IN BRIDGE IS ON THE LEAD CARD”!!!!!
WE WILL DISCUSS SIGNALLING WHEN OPPONENTS IN SUIT CONTRACTS:
OPPONENT SOUTH IS IN 4 ♠️
WEST – Your partner leads the ACE OF HEARTS ♥️ – this promises the KING ♥️
DUMMY COMES DOWN AND THERE ARE 3 low hearts
What do you think your partner needs to know BEFORE CONTINUING WITH THE KING????
Who has the QUEEN OF HEARTS?
YOUR JOB IN EAST IS TO LET PARTNER KNOW WHETHER TO CONTINUE WITH THE KING OR SWITCH TO ANOTHER SUIT?????
If you have three hearts including the QUEEN playing a six of hearts or higher indicates you have the Queen.
Playing a low card 5 or lower indicates you do not have the QUEEN.
NOW, PARTNER CAN HOLD ONTO THE KING, UNTIL YOU GET THE LEAD AT WHICH TIME YOU WILL PLAY YOUR HIGHEST HEART ❤️ TO FORCE OUT DECLARER’s Queen (which is now trapped between you and partner ) so your partner WEST CAN CAPTURE IT!
Now, I can hear all the rumbling – what if the only cards I have are 5 AND UNDER and I also the QUEEN.
FOR ONE THING, YOUR PARTNER MUST TURN AND LOOK AT THE HEARTS IN DUMMY AND LOOK AT THE HEARTS IN THEIR HAND AS SOMETIMES THEY CAN SEE YOUR FIVE OF HEARTS MAY BE THE HIGHEST IN YOUR HAND. IF THE 2, 3, 4 are not visible, the 5 may be your highest to signal!
SHOWING ATTITUDE IS THE FIRST SIGNAL GIVEN!
