TWENTY-TWO EVENING TIMES, CUMBERLAND, MD. FRIDAY, DECEMBER 2, 1955 Dial PA-2-4600 for a WANT AD Taker Jacoby On Bridge By OSWALD JACOBY West is still wondering what happened to him in the hand shown today. He expected to collect a small fortune from his vulnerable • opponents, but events turned out quite differently. South used the jump to three clubs to show a strong hand. Many experts~use this kind of jump bid as a sort of .shut-out, but even such players never make a jump overcall on a really bad hand when vulnerable against nonvulnerable opponents.

West was happy to pass and thus convert the double into a penalty double. He expected his partner to take about three defensive tricks, and he expected that his . trump length would provide about jjf; three other tricks. ^.i West opened the eight of spades, and South ruffed at once. Declarer led a heart to dummy's queen, and East won with the ace. When East now returned the queen of diamonds/it was clear that East did not have a trump. South therefore knew the.whole story. South won the diamond 'return with the ace. cashed tha king of hearts, and ruffed his last heart with dummy's only trump. He returned by ruffing a spade, led a diamond to dummy's king, and led another spade from the dummy By this time; as South knew, West was down to his six trumps. South therefore ruffed the spade with the king of trumps. - West helplessly contributed a small club to the trick. South now led a diamond, and West was forced to ruff. West had to lead a trump, giving declarer a free finesse. South now led - his last diamond, forcing West to ruff again. West then had to give declarer the last two tricks with another free trump finesse. -When the smoke had cleared South had made 10 tricks, fulfilling his contract with an overtrick. .
