South began with 1-Club, North bid 1-Heart, South 3-Clubs, North 3-Dlamonds, South 3-Spadoa, North 4-Cuiba since his partner's two bids of that suit before showing the spades indicated a six-four distribution. South then uÂ«ed the Blackwood convention, one with 6-Dia- then hopped to bidding 4-No trump to ask about hia partner's aces. North showed two with 5-Hearts. South next asked about kings with 5-No trump. North showed "" monds. South 7-Clubs. West saw fit to double tills, whereupon North went to 7-No trump, Â£.na West also doubled that. When the heart 10 was led, South took stock. There was absolutely no doubling material in the defenders' hands except the missing five ' clubs, in South's estimation. So he won the hrart trick in his closed hand, finessed the club 8, and so made his contract He would have been defeated positively if West had not doubled.
