South's rebid after the two club take-out take-out take-out is the one in question. question. When I saw the hand played in a recent tournament. one South actually chose to raise partner to three clubs, and while technically such action cannot be labeled wrong, strategically must be looked upon as an error. After the raise Norm had to choose between trying for game in the minor or risking the spaae situation in the shorter cut, via three no trump. He chose the latter, whereupon the opponents cashed the first five spaae tricks. The recommended bid by South is two no trump which North, of course, will be happy to raise -to -to three, a contract which no lead by West can defeat Actually West will lead the six of hearts, and declarer should not yield to the temptation of finessing. With nine tricks in sight and the king of spades open to attack should East obtain the lead, grabbing tactics are indicated.

North's proper response, holding 10 high card points is three no trump. Once again the direct method proves superior, and South is charged with a demerit for opening with one diamond.
