The bidding is so normal that every pair in the field would reach the same four- spade contract but while some went down one trick and others made exactly four odd, Winkman managed to make an overtrick. It is easy enough to go down after the 10 of clubs opening. You play the queen or jack from dummy. East takes his king and plays ace and another heart. West is in with the king and if he leads a second club, South will have to lose a diamond in addition to the three tricks already taken by the defense. If West shifts to the king of diamonds, South will make his contract by simply running off all his spades. The last spade lead will squeeze West out of either his club protection or his high diamonds and South won't have to lose a diamond trick. Here is how Winkman made the overtrick. It isn't a matter of anything except ability to make an unusual decision at trick one. Winkman ducked the 10 of clubs in both hands. His reason was that he had decided that West would not have led away from the king of clubs into North's club bid. Therefore, the king of clubs was marked in the East hand and Winkman wanted to let West stay in lead. West could have held declarer to 10 tricks by shifting to a heart or just continuing with clubs but West wasn't looking at his partner's cards. The one thing West was sure of was that his partner was holding the unguarded king of clubs and that it would drop on the next club So West shifted to the kfiigrof diamonds. Winkman drew trumps; ran off dummy's club in order to discard both his losing hearts and conceded a trick to the queen of diamonds. At Mamaia on the Black Sea, Rumanians have built 30 new glass-faced hotels lining a broad sandy beach. WeeMy Wealth Tip The air Inside most homes Is probably as polluted as the air 1 outside, says a report in Modern Medicine. Outside air gets inside the home. To it is added the smoke and fumes of cooking; and heating appliances, chlorine escapes from boiling water, and now we, have the added host of chemicals from spray cans —• cleaners, deodorants, hair sprays, lacquers, bleaches, pesticides, and air 'fresheners'.
