Question
If the person on my right opens 1 Spade and I have the following in spades
KQJ10
Do I get 100 honors?

Answer
Hi,

If spades ends up being the trump suit then any of the players...declarer, dummy or either defender... who is lucky enough to have 100 honors can get the points for having them. However, spades has to be the final trump suit. Just because someone bid spades during the auction, that is not enough.

I can answer questions on bidding and on cardplay with the caveat that the former may necessarily involve some subjectivity. I have been playing tournament bridge for over 20 years and I have won several regional tournaments.
