South had led a diamond to dummy's king and played tha five of hearts. East had gone up with the ace and forced South with another club. South entered dummy with the ace of diamonds and led a heart to his king. This play was made to guard against- -the: unlikely chance. that East had started with the' singleton ace of hearts. 1 This was unlikely because West's two no-trump call h a d been the unusual no-trump to NORTH 20 AJ106 V J75 . +AK2 •*8654 WEST (D) EAST • ; *Void *Q9753 VQ83 VA6 A £1 T R ? 4 A 1 n £ 9 T *q!

Anyway, S o u t h did 1 e a d hearts and rose with his king. That gave him five tricks in, and he still made three more trumps to go down one. As we said before, East was mighty proud of himself. He chortled and said, "It -to ok real courage to double three spades after you had shown a minor suit had, and I sure defended the hand to the hilt." South said nothing, but West came to life with a few choice comments. He started with: "There is a close line between courage and bravado. You did double three spades and you did set them one trick. On the other hand you might well have doubled them into game. Further- clubs, the bidding would have been passed around to North. He would probably have doubled. If South left the double in,, you might well have made your contract. In any event you would not have gone down more than one trick, but the chances are that South would not have stood for the double. He woulc have gone on to four spades and you could have doubled thai and shown a real profit," "Furthermore," South added "There was no hurry a b o u 1 taking your ace of hearts. II wasn't going. to get away from you. If you had just ducked, the chances are that South would have played his 10 and yot would have collected 500 instead of 200."
