10A --June 20, 1976 Sunday Gazette-Mail Cltirlnfcn, West Virginia Your Bridgework By Jackie WUcox North dealer. Neither side vulnerable. North S K Q J 6 H A 8 4 DQ103 C K J 1 0 West S8 H J 9 5 3 2 DAJ8.5 D 9 7 6 2 " C853 C Q 7 6 South S a l 0 7 5 4 3 2 HD K 4 C A 9 4 2 The bidding: North East South West Int pass 3 spades pass 4 spades pass 6 spades pass pass pass South's jump to six spades was certainly a reasonable call. With first round control of three suits and second round control of diamonds opposite his partner's strong no- trump opening, his chances for 12 tricks seemed bright. West led the heart three and South trumped in his hand. He led a spade to the king, ruffed the eight of hearts and continued with a spade to the queen. Next came a low diamond from the table. If East played the ace, declarer could later discard one club on the queen of diamonds and one on the ace of hearts. If East ducked with the Mrs. Wllcox ace - South would win the king and pitch his remaining diamond on the heart ace. He could now afford to lose one club trick. Unfortunately, West won the king of diamonds with his ace and returned a diamond. South rose with the queen and later misguessed the clubs to go down one. Declarer could have improved his chances with a slightly different approach. He wins the first trick with the ace, discarding his low diamond. He ruffs a heart, leads a spade to the ace, trumps dummy's last heart and leads a spade to the queen. Now comes a diamond to the king. With no hearts remaining in dummy and no diamonds in the South hand West would be end-played in hearts and clubs with a diamond return giving declarer a free finesse. Even if East did hold the diamond jack, South could trump that trick and still have a chance to guess the location of the queen of clubs. My apologies to Bob Allen. I was not aware until recently that he attained the status of Life Master during the recent Charleston Regional Tournament. Congratulations!

One of the true artistic forms of chess is the field of endgame studies and problems. It is in this form that chess provides a vehicle for creative expression. Just as a music composer utilizes sould, instruments, and sequences of notes to create music, the chess player uses the chessboard, chessman, and chess maneuvers to express his ideas. The chess composition may differ considerably from traditional art forms in its content, but it is nevertheless a product of the human mind which is full of beauty, imagination, and vigor. Consequently, it is possible that a chess composition may have as much aesthetic value as an artist's painting. IT IS INTERESTING that the Arab nations discovered chess composition as far back as the ninth century A.D. From this early beginning, there has been many famous chess composers--Lucena, Ray Lopez, Polerio, Saivio, Greco, Cheron, Troitzky, Gorgiev, Bron, and many others. Probably the most fascinating and famous composer was the American, Sam Lloyd, the foremost composer in terms of volume, quality, ingenuity, and sheer devilment in the construction of chess problems. Lloyd was also multitalented in other areas. Aside from being a renown chess composer and chess player,, he was also a magician, ventriloquist, inventor of words and mathematical problems, and America's foremost master of intellectual recreation. He created thousands of puzzles, tricks, and brain teasers. His most famous inventions include the Parcheesi game and the "14-15" puzzle. Since Lloyd's death in I911, no one has been able to come close to topping his re- markablgvfeals. 3. Mrs. B.N. Kissinger and Mrs. L.T.
