LEAD WITH THE ACES

- ©2021 Dist. By Andrews McMeel Syndicatio­n for UFS

ANSWER: Pass while you still stand a chance of getting a plus score (or avoiding a large penalty, at least). This looks like a misfit hand, and those are apt to prove disappoint­ing in the trick-taking department. Even against a trump lead, it is not too much to hope that partner has five clubs and can arrange a ruff in your hand.
