In order to successfully perform the operation of elimination upon your adversaries, three conditions are necessary. 1. The declarer must be able to win all but one of the remaining Irlcks. 2. At the lllh trick, the declarer must, be able to play a winning card from ono hand and at that time have an entry card in the other. 3. The declarer must hold in either one of his two hands a card which Is the second highest remaining in that, suit. Thati this deal should be played! at hearts cannot be questioned,' The hand was submitted in. the contest as an illustration of either tho squeeze or the stripping play, To my mind, however. It more naturally lends itficlf to the squeeze. Tile theory of the stripping play is to otrip the hands of certain suits and force opponent to lead tho one and In the stripping proceu West leads that losing diamond which East trumps. On the lead of tho third club. South Is forced Into the lead, and compelled to open spades up to East's major tenace. That looks «sy, and ecorw g»mo successfully, but only became Souti holds the queen, jack and 10 of club* and cannot eecape the lead at the fatal moment. Let's see tho other side ol the picture! Cannot that small diamond in west's hand be kept to force South into fatal discards? If the squeeze is to be applied, the first eight tricks can be accounted for by East by leading out all of the trumps. East will then have left his spades and clubs, commanding each, South, forced to hold his diamond against West's threat, will have room for only four other cards. Apply the squeeze, and South is forced to unguard his c!ube or spades or discard his good diamond. In any one ol the three cases, he is fatally hurt. If he attempts to protect his spade he Is stripped of his two remaining clubs, thrown In with the diamond and comes a cropper by having spades at the close. (Copyright, 1531, NBA Service, Inc.)
