Kantar doesn't always win a national championship, but he always comes home with dbzens of good hands.

West leads the three of diamonds and East puts up the queen. What do you do after taking the ace? One thing not to do^is look at your partner. He'll be- glaring at you for going down. The trouble is that the queen of'spades isn't where you think it is. No matter how you take the spade finesse, you'll lose the queen. So if East wins a trick with the queen of spades, he'll return a diamond to the jack. Back comes a heart and you're down one. Take back your first play of the ace of diamonds. East wins the first trick and returns a diamond to your ace. Now West cannot get in with a diamond. Since your plan, is to keep West out of the lead, you must play the trumps carefully. Take the ace of trumps and then try a finesse with the jack. Ooops! Now it turns out that West has four trumps to the queen. He will get in with a trump in time to lead a heart through dummy. Take back the ace of spades. Begin the trumps by leading the 10.from your hand. When this holds, take a finesse with the jaek, cash the king of spades and ruff a diamond. (You know that West.started with three or more diamonds, but he might be" : void of clubs.) Then draw the last trump and run the clubs. Did Kantar play the hand this way at the last national championship? Do I ask you about your income tax return? DAILY QUESTION ,i.As dealer, you hold: Spades 4, fiearts A, Q, 10, Diamonds K, $_10, 9, 2, Clubs 9, 8, 7, 6. What do you say? '^ANSWER: Bid one diamond. This borderline hand is worth £n opening bid largely because t£ the two red 10s. If they were ·phanged to low cards, you Anight cautiously decide to pass Jhis hand. « A POCKET GUIDE TO BRIDGE is available.
