Bajir wrote Yes! Trust your gut!
Bajir wrote Same thinking, same result @graybill! It's so easy, playing with the computer, to just focus on my own best suit without worrying about what lead partner might expect/hope for. Worked out well this time saving the spades for later.

Bajir wrote Oh that's a tricky one. With so many missing trumps, how did you plan your play? I decided to do as much cross ruffing as possible, but went down 2.

Bajir wrote Eeek! Can I ask why you raised to 3♣?
Bajir wrote Interesting! Your gut told you not to respond?

Bajir wrote Thanks for figuring out how to bring them down with this hand @baygon2014! But I still don't understand *why* we would we lead the ♠Q here? East has bid spades twice and clubs are the unbid suit (and our best and longest) - why not lead a club?

Bajir wrote @kbalagopal - I went for it too. Oh well. If things broke a little differently we would have been sitting at the top of the heap. Next time.

Bajir wrote Thanks @tas02! Is there a good reason for doing that? If not leading back a diamond, why lead a spade instead of a heart?

Bajir wrote Yup. A shellacking. Trounced. Walloped. A few more I can think of which are not fit to print. :)

Bajir wrote Good question @socks - after partner's overcall, I bid 3 and partner brought us up to 3NT. Worked out well this time.
Bajir wrote I was able to win 10 tricks in 3NT after winning the 3rd trick with the Q, I played 4 rounds of diamonds then switched to spades to win 5 more rounds there. Hope that helps!

Bajir wrote @purpleheart @janemart thanks for sharing your thinking, guys! right there with you. one down - even doubled, seems a worthwhile sacrifice, right?

Bajir wrote Thank you for figuring that out @purpleheart! I lead clubs but wondered if I should be leading the unbid suit.

Bajir wrote Wow surprised with this result. Didn't want to pass so responded 1NT showing 6-9 HCP. We ended up winning 11 only because they didn't rattle through the heart suit. Lucky, but I'll take it!
