JACOBY ON BRIDGE South looked over dummy unenthusiastically. He could count 12 top tricks and needed a club- diamond squeeze for his 13th. He drew three rounds of trumps as a matter of course and noted that if West were long in the minors there would be a rather simple squeeze against him, T)ut the bidding indicated that East, not West, .was going to hold the minor suits right behind dummy. He noted next that he could handle five clubs and four diamonds in the East hand by cashing the ace and king of diamonds. Getting back to his own hand with a second heart and running his last three trumps. His last little diamond and North's last little club would squeeze East. i South tried this play, but West | defeated him by hanging on to his three clubs so that the nine spot stopped that suit and enabled East to guard the diamonds. North was rather critical. He said, "If you want to gamble on seven you should learn how to play the hand first. The proper squeeze technique would have made your contract for you." North was right. See if you can figure out the winning play before going on. • • The winning play Is a crisscross ruffing squeeze, if you NORTH 4753 »AK65 + AK74 WEST (D) EAST <M *862 VQJ109353 If 74 » Q 8 * J 10 9 7 4,985 +QJ106 SOUTH 4AKQJ109 VAK • 432 432 North-South vulnerable West North East South 3V Dble Pass 44k Pass 4N.T.
