New Prize Leads Quiz

OPENING leads are often subjective and

vir tual ly any opening lead can be successful

some of the time. However, bridge is in

many ways a game of percentages and

there fore certain leads will gain more often

than others. In each issue you will be given

three hands and the bidding on each, and

you are asked to choose your opening leads

from those proposed by our Quizmaster.

Answers will be in the next issue. In each

problem you are on lead as West.
