It is the same In bridge. A handful of kings, queens and jaolts can be .a whole .lot better than one which contains a couple .of aces and then drops down to email spot cards. (Dealer: West. North-South vulnerable. } At every table of a duplicate game, South made a fourth-hand opening of 1-Spade on this deal. Then things varied. At one tablo a North player who likes aces didn't think vory much of hia cards. He bid a mere 1-No trump and South passed, for bottom score -- pretty bad bidding for both partners. In another case, North responded with 2-No trump and hia willful partner Jumped to 4-Spades. Still another development came In North responding to the l-Spad6 with 2- Clubs. When South then rabid at 2- Spades, North hopped into 3-No trump arid was allowed to play it there. Top score came at .the table where, after North's 2-Cluba, South bid 2-No trump and North 3-No trump, not necessarily, better bidding than that of the pair Just before mentioned, but this South gave the hand a better play and got a little help too. i West led the heart 3 to the A, and East switched to a club to the A. Then West switched again to the diamond 6, the J A. Followed then the heart K, diamond K; heart J and five spades. As the last was played, West had to choose either his diamond Q as a discard or a club from the Q-J. If the former, dummy's 9 would be set up, so'he picked a club and the club K-10 made the last two tricks, for five-odd. · · » Tomorrow's Problem A K10 T A A V 10 3 « K Q 10 9 6 * K Q 4 3 (Dealer: North.

Why is it better in some respects to bid only 2-Dlamonds in the South in response to North's 1-Heart, and why better in some respects to bid 3-Dlamonds ? . 1939, Kinr F«tai« Sjndicitr. Inc.
