The defenders are doing the same thing as declarer when trying to take tricks. Making a defenders’ plan is just as important for them as for declarer at the beginning of each hand.
The quality and length of your suit, where you’re sitting at the table, and the vulnerability are all to be considered when deciding whether to preempt.
Learn how to manage when the opponents open a weak two-bid.
