THIRD AND FIFTH LEADS

A convention whereby, from long suits without an honour sequence, you lead the third highest card from three and four card suits and lead the fifth highest from longer holdings.

It is quite common to play third and fifth leads in suits your partner has bid. This is because you are much more likely to lead from a three-card suit if partner has bid it.
