Surely a player of your bridge skills is familiar with most or all of the following tips you are about to read. But is your partner?
Fact #25 on Defense
In general the lead of a low card shows strength and the lead of a relatively high spot card shows weakness.
If partner leads a low card in one suit, gets in and shifts to a low card (showing strength) in another suit, partner wants a return in the second suit. If partner shifts to a high card in the second suit (top of nothing perhaps), he is asking for a return in the first suit. Got it?
Fact #26 on Defense
When partner leads low from length and dummy has small cards, third hand plays high. However, if third hand has two or three equal high cards, third hand plays the lower or lowest equal. (From K10x, play the king, from KQx, play the queen, from KQJ(x), play the jack.)
