Fv yme orcasionally runs , 1 1 o the vexing problem of ,', ;i"-sing a two-way finesse for a losing queen. As a typical ilii'ir.ition, let's consider .' nidi's problem in this deal, Ii''-i all be has to do to make he slain is g".ess the location of JiP qniHn of diamonds. West lends the ten of hearts, vi.n in dummy with the queen, declarer commences his ,nlventure by playing three oiinds of trumps and three inre rounds of hearts. M,) v rotnes the moment of ivth when South must decide Toraoorrow whether East or West is more likely to have the queen of diamonds. If South finesses in the right direction, he is sure of making six, and may even make seven. But if he finesses in the wrong direction, he is sure to go down, losing a diamond and a club. South cannot feel certain of making the slam, but he should play West for the queen of diamonds. In the course of winning the first seven tricks, South learns that West started with two spades and two hearts, whereas East started with three spades and four hearts. West was therefore originally dealt nine unknown cards that might have included the queen of diamonds, while East was dealt only six unknown cards that might have included the queen. It follows logically that West is more likely to have been dealt the queen than East, and declarer should therefore choose the percentage play of finessing through West. In line with this, South should lead the ace of diamonds at trick eight, unblocking the ten from dummy, and continue with the nine, letting it ride. When thejiine wins, South repeats the finesse and winds up making all the tricks as a result of having chosen the proper percentage play. Bidding quiz.

Oh boy, did I get response. Here are two letters that render the de-bale a standoff. "After giving birth to three boys, I finally p it a girl on my fourth try. At first, she did the sweet little things I longed to see. Mi1 played coy, put her hands to her face v .! n she laughed, and batted her eyes like Miss Congeniality. ' ihen she turned 14 months and she slun k like Hurricane Stacy. When she discovered she could no longer sail down the favorite outfit for four months. How do you ignore a long dress with a ripped ruffle, holes in the elbow and a Burger King crown? How would you handle it if you were in the supermarket and the loudspeaker announced, 'ATTENTION SHOPPERS. We have a small child in Produce wearing a long pink dress with a gauze apron, glittery shoes and a Burger King crown'? Our third child was born recently. Another girl. I told the orderly to pass maternity and go straight to geriatrics. I rest my case which is the only rest I've had in six years." Truce. The other challenge came from a woman who said, "You don't know what you're talking about. With boys you always know where you stand. You yell upstairs, 'What's all that thumping about?' and you get an honest reply, 'Joey threw the cat down the clothes chute. It was cool.' "When my daughter is upstairs playing Barbie, I yell, 'What are you girls doing?' She answers sweetly, 'Nothing.' "I have to find out for myself that they're making cookies out of my new bath powder and a $12.50 jar of moisturizer. "Her pediatrician advised me to 'not notice' when she insisted on wearing her banister and make my hair stand on end, she turned to streaking. I'd dress her ever so sweetly and go do the breakfast dishes. Before one glass was washed, she'd strip, unlock the door, and start cruising the neighborhood. One day, the dry cleaner made a delivery and said, 'My goodness, I hardly recognized Stacy with her clothes on." "As she got older, she opened her brother's head with a bottle opener for 'taking her dolls' and called the school principal Baretta. "I am pregnant again. I sleep with a football under my pillow each night." Erma Bombeck J
