This is a bridge aphorism for choosing the opening lead against a notrump contract. The logic behind it is that leading a low card from this suit will help to establish it.

Situations in which this applies Edit

  • Leading against notrump with a relatively strong and/or solid suit of five or more cards
  • Or, when holding several high honors to use as entries

Situations in which this does not apply Edit

  • A suit with tenaces or many gaps between the values
  • A suit with no strength
  • When other information has suggested a different suit would be a better lead
  • Cashing a sequence of honours in a slam contract
