Another spade to the ace: then Of the four Montrealers, Jack the heart ace, and when West showed out, the contract became hopeless. The question was: How could South have made the slam contract? Answer: When the spade oueen held the trick, and West was known to have started with king-small. South might well consider the possibility that West was void of hearts, since he obviously had great length in the minors. In any case it Couldn't cost anything for fcouth to lead the club queen Gersho had the best score, 6-6, M. Moss, R. LeBel and Dr. T. Popov. More than a dozen women took part and Mrs. Sonia Graf Steven son, with the highest score among them, earned the U.S.A. Women s Open Title. There were half a dozen married couples competing and Mr. and Mrs. Guala, of N.Y., with the highest combined score were awarded a special prize. A Notable Anthology "THE GOLDEN TREASURY OF throueh West at Trick 4. The club CHESS", complied by editors of king was marked with West, but Chess; Review, Harvey House, he might not have the club jack. Irvington-on-Hudson, N.Y., 326 pp., West would cover the queen, of! photos, $3.95 course, and the ace would win. Then it would be time to pick up West's trump king and test the hearts by cashing the ace. If West followed suit, it would be easy to set up a long heart by ruffing, but with West showing out, declarer's only chance would be to run the rest of the trumps in the hope of squeezing East. Since East actually had the club jack, this squeeze would come off East would have to give up his heart stopped or that club jack. A ..mir.imw H VS4 PROBLEM NO. 543 W. J.

It is one of those "nothing - to - lose" plays which sometimes pay off handsomely. Tha Bidding Questions 1. With only your side vulnerable and with the opponents passing throughout, your partner opens with one spade and you respond with two hearts. Partner now jumps to three spades. What call do you make on: I S4 HAK6532 DKQJ9 CQ5 The correct call is four diamonds. A slam is a distinct possibility, and that slam can easily be at diamonds instead of any other denomination.
