BARCLAY ON BRIDGE By S h e p a r d B a r c l a y "The Authority on Authorities 1 ' FEAR HOT POTATOES DURING THE DAYS of auction, the expression "hot potato" was applied to those hands which are such terrible misfits that whichever aide gets the contract is sure to be burnt. Good bidders always keep their eyes open to discern the danger that these deals extend. Not only are they careful to avoid the punishment that lurks in them, but they like to see the opponents burn their fingers.

Naturally both suits got bid by somebody at every table In the duplicate where this deal arose. The course of the auction was governed largely by whether or not South opened the bidding first. It he did. his side bid diamonds. If he did not. East bid them. In one case West started with 1-Heart, East bid 2-Diamonds, West 2-Hearts, East 3-Diamonds and South doubled. West took out to 3-Hearts, which North doubled. East now, showing a six-four distribution, bid 3-Spodeg. That was Copjtitht. 1SJ9. KiDE Jie nearest to a fit the side could imd, bat even this was set three tncks. South made a third-hand opener of 1-Diamond at one table. West bid 1-Heart, North, doubled, East called 1-Spade, and South here bid 2-Diamonds. Taking this as a confession that the original bid was weak, North passed, and the side made exactly 2-Diamonds. One pair got into 4-Diarnonds in the Kast, for a set of flve tricks, one West player was set at 2-Hearts not doubled, and one South made 3-Diamonds. Just why no North- South pair reached 3-No trump is hard to figure, for there are many sequences of sound bidding that could produce that contract But nobody did. Perhaps it was due to a aort of jinx that seems to iaover around these queer misfit deals which nearly everybody bids in a way different from everybody else.
