Hand six represented a triumph for the bidding methods used by Mrs. Stone and Mrs. Bailey, playing simple Standard \merican. Thus Mrs. Bailey was inot erupted to open the North hand .villi two hearts. They were not jsing weak two bids. Had she opened a weak two leart bid chances are that she A 'ould have played the hand here and gone down one. Thus it was up to Mrs. Smith to open in fourth seat and she made the simple call of one spade in accordance with the rule of opening the higher ranking of two five card suits. Many players make an exception and open a club in preference to a spade with this type of hand'. We don't know just where the ladies would have played the hand after a club opening. Anyway, after Mrs. Stone opened with one spade, it was up to Mrs. Bailey to act. We don't I 'ecommend a pass with her hand. Neither do we i'ecom­ mend a bid of two hearts. The modern theory is that you don't bid a new suit at the two level with less than 10 high card points, therefore the North hand calls for a one no- trump response. Mrs. Bailey decided against bidding. Had she responded one no- trump they might well have wound up at two spades or higher. It is all rather academic because one spade became the final contract and Mrs. Stone proceeded! to make three odd for what would have been a really excellent score in rubber bridge, match points, IMPS or a telephone match. It could be lied but il couldn't be beaten.
