LEAD WITH THE ACES

Houston Chronicle - - PUZZLES & TV -

AN­SWER: You could make a case for bid­ding two spades, since you have de­nied three­card sup­port al­ready (switch the ma­jors, and that case be­comes even bet­ter). How­ever, since you are fac­ing a card-show­ing dou­ble with an em­pha­sis on take­out, I would sim­ply bid three clubs, get­ting your mi­nor-suit pat­tern across as ef­fi­ciently as pos­si­ble. There may be room to show spade sup­port later.
