32 Bridge Bulletin December 2016 LEADS The standard leads are indicated in bold. If you and your partner have no special agreements, there isn’t much to be filled in here. Standard will be presumed. If you do some - thing fancy (like 10 or 9 leads to show 0 or 2 higher), you would have to circle such a special agreement by marking the card (not in bold) that your partnership would lead. Notice that under “versus Suits,” A K x has no bold. Just circle the card you would lead; “standard” these days is to lead the ace. For Length Leads, standard would be 4th Best against both suits and notrump. Mark your agreement accordingly. If you do something else, such as 3rd/5th Best against suits or Attitude against notrump, you would mark that instead. Unless you’ve played many years and have an equally experienced partner, I suggest settling on “Standard” in this area. The advantages of fancier methods are negligible. For the “Primary signal to part - would be “Attitude.” SLAM CONVENTIONS You can check the “Gerber” box, but I recommend using it only if the prior bid was 1NT or 2NT. Gerber is a 4  bid which asks for aces. Since it is in black, Gerber is not Alertable; nor are the responses. For 4NT, mark either “Blackwood” if you play plain-old aces. If you use RKC (Roman Keycard Blackwood) with the old-fashioned responses where 5  = 0 or 3 and 5  = 1 or 4, check RKC. If you use the more modern responses of 5  = 1 or 4 and 5  = 0 or 3, check the 1430 box. Note : What - ever you play, make sure your partner is playing it the same way! No kind of Blackwood nor any responses to it are Alertable. Interference in Blackwood auctions is so rare that it isn’t really practical for newer players, so you can ignore the last line of this section.

Check both boxes next to “Standard” (under “vs SUITS” and under “vs NT”). This would mean that high means you like it (or an even number as in hi-lo with a doubleton) and that low means you don’t like it (or an odd number of cards if giving a count signal). There is no need to mark anything else in this section. Yes, there are some good nonstandard methods available here – most experts use them – but until you’ve played bridge for many years, it is impractical to use anything other than standard.
