Passive Defense Situations when declarer is in a suit contract: Partner gives us clear lead direction Partner opened/overcalled a major suit (5+) Partner doubled the opponent's artificial bid (Stayman, Transfer, cuebid) Trump lead reduces opponents ruffing ability Safe sequence lead is best (Ace from Ace-King, top of sequence, etc.) Opponents have minimal strength (partscore) Partner not likely to hold a helpful honor (bust) Declarer (Right Hand Opponent) bid strongly but not in a slam suit contract Opens 1 Notrump (15-17), rebids 2 Notrump (18-19), opens 2 NT (20-21) Opener reverses as: 1C -- 1H; 2D...
