The Golden Rules of Opening Leads is an excellent book covering a vital but often neglected part of bridge. Some of the oldest golden rules about the game, such as 'fourth highest of your longest and strongest' and 'top of a sequence' govern opening leads. Here you can find all of the rules, with examples relevant to bridge today. If you study this book carefully, you will find that the way to pick killing leads derives from what you hear in the auction and in relating that to what you see in your hand. All bridge players will benefit greatly from reading this book, whether they play rubber bridge or duplicate.
