When the agreement is that partner shows attitude ( reverse ) when you lead an ace then D4 must show the K or the Q.
So I continue playing diamonds - the D2.

After this bidding a major lead seems indicated - unless W has a good suit headed by the K.

Would W lead a diamond from Jxxxx(x)? I do not think so.

Would W lead a diamond from Kxxxx(x)? I think so.

So IMO best chance is to play the Q.

This hand is 100% orientated to play in a suit contract. A clear cut 1S for me.

“Psyche” lies a lot about your hand.

“Tactical” lies only a little about your hand.

IMHO it is a tactical bid - waiting to see what will happen.

I agree - but we play the system we play.
Showing heart singelton shows 3 spades in our system. All systems have upsides and downsides.
And 3H after 2NT shows 5 card heartsuit.

I played this deal on BBO today with my partner Flemming Dahl against two rented basic robots.
We bid to 6H - and the robot found the ONLY killing lead - H7!

With minors S could/should have doubled 2S.
So for me 4C is cue with hearts as trump.

If partner has 4 spades I bid 7. Else I pass.

My partner will bid 2NT with 4+ spades - so probably he has only 3 so I pass.

N opened 1H and S showed strong support with 2NT.
N showed diamond singelton with 3D.
And after some cuebids and RKC N became declarer in 6H.

Do not mastermind partner.
