Rusinow leads

Rusinow leads is a bridge convention used as part of defensive carding. Rusinow leads are commonly used only on the opening lead against a suit contract.

In accordance with the convention the second highest honour card is led from touching honours against a suit contract. So from KQ94 a player using the Rusinow Lead convention would lead the Q. This eliminates the ambiguity of the lead of the King against a suit contract where the partner of the leader may not be clear whether his partner has the Ace or the Queen.
