North opened horo with 1-Dla- mond, South bid 2-Clubs and North forced with S-Dfcmwmds-- or, at least, it was a force unless South's hand barely held enough for his flrst bid. When South bid 3-No trump, North asked about aces with the Blackwood 4-No trump and South showed one with 5-Diaraonds. North next asked about kings with 5-No trump and South showed none with 6-C!ubs. Sounfi logic for West would be about as follows: My own hand is worthless, so I should lead what figures to be the best help to my partner In setting, this contract. The opponents' suifcs of diamonds and clubs are out o£ the question. My own spades are hopeless. I must lead a heart. j Had West done mat the contract would have been ' set. For East would have taken one trick in hearts and one in clubs. But West didn't. He led the fourth-best of his own suit, spades. The declarer won It in dummy, led a club, and sii lost only one trick, to the club K, as the diamond suit set up on a lucky break. Tomorrow's.
