APRIL 12 1934 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE NINE Tips on Contract SET OF 4,000 By Tom O'NcIl A striking example of the danger of rescue bids when vulnerable comes from the Marine and Field club of Brooklyn. A vulnerable overcall was tie first of a chain of events which led to a penalty of 4,000 points--a set of five redoubled vulnerable. The result was much to the advantage of John E. Buhl, who opened the bidding, for he and partner wound up the rubber with a grand slam. Here was the hand: "WEST 4 N O N E + K Q I 0 9 7 4 2 * A K 0 8 5 SOUTH +NONE + NONE + 6 G 5 S + 9 7 6 4 North opened the bidding with one spade, and East offered two diamonds. It wasn't such a bad bid, but there really was no hurry for East to enter the auction before hearing bow things fared with the opposition. South doubled. It was quite a close double, but he relied on his void of spades and ability to ruff bis partner's low spades and the strength of the heart suit. In addition he hoped by the double to discourage North from rebiddlng unless strong. West leaped to the rescue with three clubs, a bad bid. The clubs were hardly of independent strength. West had no diamonds, in case the club offer should not fit Bast's hand. There was no occasion to rescue the diamond double unless East, by an s. o. s. redouble should ask for help. North and East passed and South promptly smacked the three-club bid. Then West made a grave error. Confident that East's diamond overcall was as good as an original bid, and, believing that he could discard on East's diamonds some of hia own losers, he redoubled. West took only four tricks and those with clubs. North made the brilliant opening of the heart eight, reasoning that South must have a heart suit. The heart queen, played on the knave, took the first trick, the heart ace the second, the heart ten the third, and then North trumped a heart. · North led a spade and, as he sus- pected, found his partner void. After trumping, South led his last heart. Thinking that the double marked South with the higher clubs missing from his own hand. West ruffed the heart deuce with the club eight and North overruffed with the ten-spot. Another spade was shot back for South to trump. Out of hearts, South figured that North must have the ace of diamonds to have justified his opened bid. A diamond was led. West trumped. Then he took tricks with his three top clubs and had to lead away from his king of spades, losing two tricks in that suit at the end. In the ensuing' arguments between East and West the latter pointed, out that had East passed the bid of one spade South would have bid two hearts, and North and South would have wound up in trouble at any contract. South agreed that he would have bid two hearts in fear and trembling' because he had no spades. His sensing of misfit hands all around was what caused him to double. Of course East would not have been as badly off in two diamonds as West was with three clubs. The president needn't worry so long as his mistakes seem dreadful only to those who don't like him.-Cedar Rapids Gazette. Mlt. AND MBS. UAGLK UONOKED AT FAKE WELL Mr. and Mrs. J. H.
