1♠ P 1NT P
2♠ P P P

North opens 1♠ to start the bidding, East passes and South responds with 1NT showing 6-9 HCP without a spade fit. West also passes and North rebids 2♠ which represents 6+ spades but fewer than 16 points. This bid ends the auction as neither East nor West want to compete over 2♠ and South has no interest in game so also passes this out. East starts the defence with a low diamond lead – as North what is your plan in this partscore?
