PA6E-8 Sheinwold On Bridge MAKE YOUR CONTRACT WITH DOUBLETON ACE ;.; By ALFRED SHEINWOLD Earlier in the week we went back 14 years to see how an expert muffed a simple safety play in a world championship. We didn't have to look so far and so hard. Experts miss simple plays all the time.

European Team Championships, declarer won .the first trick with the king of clubs and led a 'spade to: dummy's queen. 'So far, so good.; Declarer fell- 'from grace when he returned ^a. 'spade from ..dummy,; losing., the king to West's ace. Back" carne a club to the /Sout]i-.led a diamond to dum- ·my^ king -and returned a heart .to the -queen. Then he led anoth- 'er heart, losing dummy's' king to the, ape; 'The. defenders, took their two' ; 'club -tricks' 'and then East returned -a :Spade to dum- : my's jack'. South had'Two. tricks in.: each suit and needed a 3-3 break in either spades ,or hearts.. When neither suit broke favorably he was down one. :.Of course, you have seen ;the simple play that brings the con-" tract home. When dummy's queen holds the first spade trick, the odds are very high that West has the ace. Declarer should plan to lead spades again from his.own hand, . . To get to , his own hand, · d,e- clarer leads a low heart from dummy to his own queen. Now he leads another 'low spade. West is obliged to -play the' 'ace and declarer still has his own king and dummy's jack, making three spade tricks instead of only two. · ,, - . . . South can make;, three tricks in either major suit by. leading low cards twice toward the hand with two honors. .This works not only if the suit breaks 3-3, but if 'second hand has the doubleton ace. The play is well known both In Norway and Great Britain. Experts miss plays that they know as well as plays that they don't know. DAILY QUESTION Partner opens with 1-NT (16 to 18 points) and the next player bids two hearts. You hold: Spade-A 5; ; Hearts ,1(1/9, 8; 6, D ?i- monds Q 7: : .4,. ', Club's J 7 5 3. What do you say? . . ANSWER: .Double, unless your opponent is famous for his conservative bidding. Your side has more high cards and more trumps than the other side; you should be able to beat two hearts, and you may collect a very sizable penalty. A POCKET GUIDE TO BRIDGE is available.
