South had a much better play by cashing bis tricks and reducing East to three cards. First, East must have started with the heart ace to justify his opening bid. He was was also odds-on to hold five spades. Which three cards would be able to hold? After winning the diamond return declarer could play his remaining high diamonds discarding two hearts from the board. The clubs would be run leaving the following cards: North4 K J The bidding: East South 1 spade pass pass 1 nt pass 3 nt 4 4 4 West pass pass pass North double 2 nt pass West Immaterial East 4 Q 7 * A Q A -- passThe correct play of today's hand hinged on applying a little logic. The bidding provided a clear cut picture of East's holding but South neglected to take full advantage of the information. East opened the bidding with one spade and after two passes North balanced with a double. South's no- trump response promised around eight to 10 high card points. North raised i n v i t i n g to game and South accepted as he held top values for his bid. West led the deuce of spades, declarer played low from dummy and East's 10 forced the ace. A low diamond to the Mrs. Wilcox queen i ost to tne ace am j East continued diamonds. South noted that if he could set up one more spade without East cashing the ace of hearts he could win five clubs, three spades and three diamonds for a total of 11 tricks. He now led his low spade to the jack. East won the queen and gave some thought to his next play. From the bidding South was marked with around 10 points. This left room for only one point in his partner's hand so he promptly cashed the South + 8 4 ' V 3 2 When the club four is led East has a choice of discarding a spade making the K-J both good or pitching the heart queen. In this case declarer leads the king of hearts and East is forced to return a spade into the K-J. LAST WEEK'S WINNERS SUNDAY NICHT DUPLICATE Club Teurnament NORTH-SOUTH 1.
