NOVEMBER 2, 1955 FIVE Jacobfj On Bridge Weak Two-Bkl Has Pilf alls BY OSWALD JACOBY Written (or NBA Service One of the advantages of the "weak" two-bid is that it temp's even expert opponents to do foolish things. When today's hand was played in the national championships, a couple of months ago, West certainly knew enough to pass the hand out at two diamonds, but he yielded to th'e temptation to take action. From then on it was hard to stop East from acting. East passed the d_ouble of two diamonds, electing - to play for Beautiful Line PERSONALIZED Christmas Cards Make Your Selection Now! — THE — SIEGLER'S GAS AND OIL HEATERS WARM MORNING COAL HEATERS FOR CASH THE CHEAPEST .

Now Myron Field, whose team eventually won and will go to Paris in January to play for the world, championship, rescued himself in hearts. East doubled with satisfaction and waited for the slaughter to begin. NORTH (C) AJ63 ¥2 • AKJ1087 *873 WEST EAST 4K985 V83 • 53 + AQ1054 SOUTH AAQ VAJ7 49 6'4 2 *K962 410742 VKQ109654 Both sides vul.

East would take two spades, enter the West hand with a club, discard on the king of spades, and Consult our . REALTY SERVICE: . Liberty St. 1st Floor DIAL PA 4-0880 •— ruff a fourth spade. The ace of trumps would be the setting trick. • West had no way of knowing what it would fake to set the contract. The bidding hinted that East had good diamonds, so West led the five of diamonds. Field won it in dummy and cashed another high diamond to discard the singleton club. He then led the trump from dummy and finessed the ten from his hand when East played low. The contract was now home, but Field was in the market for overtricks. He led the king r ot hearts to force out the ace, ruffed a club return, drew the last trump, and led a low spade. West played low, and Field played a low spade 'rom dummy. Tiiis fine play was based on sound reasoning. If the spades were 3-3, it didn't atter whether dummy played high or low. If the spades were 4-2, which was more probable, the best chance to bring in the ten of spades eventually was to play low from dummy in the hope that East had only two high spades. Declarer could give up two spades to East and use dummy's jack to force out West's high spade. There was just time enough to bring in the ten of spades as an overtrick, and South scored 990 points on a hand that the opponents could have passed at t\\ o diamonds.
