MPs, all vul

8xxx 9xx Jx Qxxx

You deal, LHO opens 2NT (20-22), opps bid

2NT-3C puppet stayman
3D one 4cM - 4H "natural, 6 hearts"
all pass

I asked if RHO is 3=6, "probably". Opps are not experienced players.

What would you lead?

Thanks,

ahydra

It's MPs so even if the opponents can make the contract, the last thing you want to do is give away overtricks. Partner has some points in his/her hand, and whilst a lead away from the Q might be profitable, declarer is likely to be short in some suit, and its more likely to be s. The J lead looks best, and on a good day partner has honours too and you may also get a ruff on the third round.

Actually, all leads could be justified and no suit seems « obviously wrong ». DJ could easily backfire but is more likely to « force » dummy’s honors than a neutral H that won’t give anything away but loses a tempo. S might help develop dummy’s suit while p rates to be short there, and is the lead I like the least. C could establish a trick for us but rates to be declarer’s short suit...
At MPs, I’ll go for the neutral and let my non-experienced opp blow a trick by his’own 🤣🤣

Are they beginners and just guessing? An agreement to show 6 hearts and wrong side the contract here is dumb to say the least.
