(It would be a silly bid with 5-4-4 distribution and a spade void.) The jump to six spades was also well judged. Despite the minimal point count, North had what South needed, aces and kings. Against an average West, 12 tricks are easy. Declarer wins a club lead and ruffs a club, discards two hearts on the diamonds, ruffs a diamond and ruffs another club. The only loser is the trump king. At our table, West found the devastating lead of the two of clubs. I gave it a shot by winning in dummy and ruffing a diamond. A club ruff was followed by the two high diamonds, discarding a heart and a club, then another diamond ruff. If the diamonds had been 4-4, I could have cashed the spade ace and discarded a heart on the fifth diamond. Alas they were not. I await your advice, Edgar. This game is too tough if you have to be lucky and good. You are my favorite player of all time. Your magazine, The Bridge World, is must reading for serious students of the game. That is why I am sending you the enclosed deal to find out what went wrong. You may recognize the North-South hands. They were also dealt in the Challenge the Champs feature in the August issue. My partner and I had an auction identical to one of the pairs in the contest who scored 10 out of 10 points for reaching the excellent spade slam. Unfortunately, all we got was zero matchpoints on the deal. First, three bids merit discussion. Two spades is clearly the best response with the South hand. It is more important to jump shift with a good hand and an independent suit like that than it is to jump shift with 19 high card points. You can always force to slam later with the latter hand type. This jump shift gave North a chance to cooperate in the slam search. North cooperated beautifully. Four clubs was a cuebid in support BY MIKE OECHSLER Enquirer Contributor East-West vulnerable; North deals.
