Example text

The concept of the suit-preference signal is very easy and yet many pairs make use of this tool only when giving ruffs. In this chapter, we will illustrate some other scenarios in which you can use suit-preference signals. There are many of them, and this is far from being a complete treatise on the subject. We hope it will provide food for thought. Suit-preference signals when following suit When declarer leads a suit in which you hold only small cards, your first task is to tell partner your count.

If instead you held strong spades and clearly wanted a spade switch, your first discard would be a club. With the luxury of a second discard, you would next throw a diamond. If you wanted a club switch, you would throw a spade then a diamond. You could even suggest a diamond continuation, by throwing once from each black suit. e. where your strength lies. That information is transmitted by which suit or suit(s) that you discard. You can therefore select your spot card from the chosen suit to give count.

For this reason, you will usually need a count signal when you lead from a long suit. Look at the next deal from the West position: ♠Q73 ♥A8 ♦764 ♣ A K 10 7 2 ♠85 ♥K652 ♦AK953 ♣94 N E W S ♠964 ♥ Q 10 9 3 ♦Q82 ♣Q85 ♠ A K J 10 2 ♥J74 ♦ J 10 ♣J63 You lead a top diamond against four spades. Suppose you choose to lead the ace, to request an attitude signal. East will follow with the eight, declarer with the ten. You continue with the king, on which partner completes his echo with the two and declarer plays the jack.
