Ifcgardless of partner's holding, he must do one of two things—lake cm, or make a penalty pass. The weaker Hie hand Is the more reason'for him taking out, but as you ;>avc definitely told him that your hand contains three and ons-half high card tricks, he may make, a penalty pass if he feels that It is better to accept a large penalty rathor than try for game.
