The diagrammed hand, played during a money rubber bridge game, turned into a nightmare for East-West. The nightmare was caused by East's greed and it cost him dearly. East can defeat seven hearts. He has no chance whatever against seven notrump. The first double, disastrous but understandable, catapulted North- South into an unbeatable seven notrump. North had bid seven hearts without scientifically exploring for the best contract. He checked for aces with Blackwood and that was all. East's double brought him to his senses. Why would East double? It could only mean he had at least one trump trick. North bid seven notrump, the contract he should have been in all along. East's second double stemmed from frustration and immaturity. Common sense is very important in bridge, as it is with everything else. Doubling seven hearts could, at most, gain 100 points. Instead it drove North to seven notrump and cost East-West the 2,930 points North-South won on the redoubled grand slam plus the 100 points they surely would have scored for defeating seven hearts undoubted. When opponents wind up in an inferior contract, it is silly to chase them out of it with a double. (NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSN.) (For a copy of JACOBY MODERN, send $1 to: "Win at Bridge," care of this newspaper, P.O. Box 489, Radio City Station, New York, N. Y. 10019.) Horoscope Bernice Bede Osol September 27, 1978 LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Again today you must take care how you spend your money, especially on untested projects. Reserve ihe day for listening, studying and observing. Find out to whom you're romantically suited by sending for your copy of Astro-Graph Letter. Mail 50 cents for each and a long, seif-addressed, stamped envelope to Astro-Graph, P.O. Box 489, Radio City Station, N.Y. 10019. Be sure to specify birth sign. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) An unexpected roadblock could halt a personally important goal today. However, that inner resolve of yours quietly finds an alternate route. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21( Friends will come to your aid and buoy your spirits when you momentarily find yourself down in the dumps. It'll be impossible to remain blue. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Continue to keep friends and business dealings separated today. Although you may be tempted to do otherwise, the two won't mix well. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Impulsive, erratic agreements must not be made today. Your success depends upon knowledge gained through research or experience. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Safety precautions should not be ignored for the sake of expediency today. Carefully follow all such procedures to guarantee success. ARIES (March 21-April 19) In attempting to gratify a whim today, you could impulsively indulge in foolish, costly behavior. Avoid trouble. Consciously strive to maintain high standards. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You may have a tough time getting going today because of several false starts. Through persever- ence and second tries success does come. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You're uninterested in doing things for yourself today and are careless with personal chores. Doing something for or with someone else is quite another story. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Because you feel you've worked hard and deserve to treat yourself, you may impulsively buy the first things you see. Your purchases could be senseless. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Much to your embarrassment you could display a temper today if things don't quickly go your way. Otherwise, you're a pretty charming person. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) This is not one of those days to follow your hunches. Ignore that inner voice. Rely solely upon your logical evaluations. (NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSN.)
