FAVOK THE FITTER CONFRONTED WITH a choice between two suite for your aide's final contract- -one of them an immense string In your own hand and the other one in which you have a splendid fit for your partner's bid, there should be little argument. Except upon the rarest of occasions, you are better off to let him play it. The main reason is that it affords 3. lot of entries to both hands, and a safe way to go bock and forth conveniently. Another Is that you thereby obviate the danger of a defensive ruff of that suit. A third IB that it offers the possibility of a cross-ruff if that be found advisable after the opcnir.g lead.

North began the bidding of tills deal with 1-Club, East bid 1-Heart, South 2-Diamonds, West passed and North bid 4-Clubs, to compel a game. South took this out Into 4-Dlarnonds and North, having his fine fit for the diamond suit, decided there should surely be a slam In the hand. He consequently called 6. Clubs. West had sense enough to keep his own counsel, Instead of doubling. Guessing from the bidding that the second round of hearts would be ruffed, and that North was surely prepared for a lead of that suit, East decided to try the unorthodox lead ol the diamond 10. West of course trumped this. Steered away from a heart return by the fact that his partner had clearly considered his own suit hopeless, West decided lo return a trump. He had the great good fortune of finding his partner with the ace, and therefore got a chance to ruff a second diamond, putting the declarer down two tricks. North's bidding was sound up to his very last call, which should have been 6-Dlamonds Instead of 6-CIUbs. An overtrick was waiting- at diamonds. Tomorrow's Problem * Q 10 9 V Q J 8 ,4 K 9 3 4.
