McKKNNKY Secretary American Bridge League A quick Irick Is a high card which vill, In practically every Instance, ake a trick on the first or second ound of play in that suit. Occa- ionally, of course, our aces will be rumped on the first round, but .his is so rare that we should not allow it to influence our high card trick values, therefor can ace U always counted as a quick trick. An ace, king can be counted upon o take the first and second round of that suit, therefore it is valued as two quick tricks. A king or the queen will force out the ace and the other will take- the second round. When a high card has better than a 60-60 chance to win a trick on the first or second round in the play of that cult, it Is counted as one-half trick. A guarded king Is given, the value of one-half trick. It wll bo interesting to note that, table that at no lime arc more' advisable to put. too much addeJ tour k tags, which, are valued as: than two tricks counted In any one , value to finesse combination'; It wo quick IrlcKS, over a period of suit.

An ace, i the first three tricks, but generally bidding ' queen is given the value of one and this typ- of hand is hold with on- ' Yoll < one-half tricks as the only time the queen will lose Is when the king is on the JeH of it. The simplest table for quick tricks Is as follows: Ace, lung ,Ace, queen, Jack Ac*, quern Ate Klnj, qu«n Hat, x Queen, Jack, x or more smaU card, When a four!
