LEAD OUT OF TURN

You are declarer. Your right hand opponent makes

a lead out of turn, the director gives you five

options:

1 Accept the lead out of turn and play the hand

yourself

2 Accept the lead out of turn and let your partner

play the hand

3 Refuse the lead and require that the partner leads

the penalty card suit - the opening lead is picked

up and the defender can now play any card on his

partner's lead.

4 Refuse the lead and prohibit the partner from

leading the penalty card suit - the opening lead is

picked up and the defender can now play any card

on his partner's lead. The partner is prohibited

from leading the penalty card suit for as long as

he retains the lead.

5 Refuse the lead and allow the partner to lead

anything he wants to - the lead out of turn

remains face up on the table as a Major Penalty

Card and must be played at the first legal

opportunity.

Which option do you take, sitting SOUTH holding

these cards after the auction given and when your

RHO makes the lead out of turn given. Five marks

for each correct answer.
