What Card to Play Second in a Bridge Hand - 01/12/2013
In determining the card to play second in hand, you will find it a great assistance to ask yourself why the dealer is leading that suit. You can usually infer from the dummy's cards and your own hand what the dealer must hold to have led the suit. Cover an honour with an honour. This should always be done holding a perfect or an imperfect fourchette (a card higher and a card lower than the one led). An honour should be covered when by so doing you hope to make a card good in your partner's hand. Don't cover holding a K, Q, or J three times guarded, unless your next best card is a nine or better. Don't hesitate. By hesitation a player often shows the dealer how to play his cards. Play quickly, and if there is any doubt as to your play, play the lowest card you hold. If the dummy has a tenace over your cards or can take any card you hold, play low; let the dealer do the guessing. Holding any two or more honours in sequence, play the lowest honour of the sequence. A K        K Q Q J            J 10 Beat the dummy. When the dealer leads, it is usually advisable to play a card higher than the best in the dummy. If you hold ace and others of the suit which the dummy leads, and the trumps are all against you, play your ace second in hand. If you wait, your ace may be trumped.
