DONT GET TOO EXCITED SOME PLAYERS go emotional whenever a pre-emptive bid Is made against them. They treat it as a personal affront, as If their opponents had no right to prevent them from making a game that has been dealt to them. And, as If with vindictive fury, they go ahead and bid their own suit anyway j seeming to presume that their partner has 'whatever is needed to (produce the game. As a consequence, they take some fearful seta, even when neither side could have made a game. game, in the other major suit, he called 4-Spades. Wasn't that a luscious morsel for North to double? Even though he knew from his partner's call that he would have to take all of the setting tricks himself. Poor benighted West lost seven tricks, three in the trump suit, two in diamonds, and two in clubs, so wag set four tricks, 1100 points. The saddest thing about it was that South could not have made hia contract, even with that very fine dummy which North would have laid down for him. A trick would have been lost in each suit if West had seen fit merely to double the 4-Hearts or else play against it un- doubled, as some players would have done, fearing that some of their high cards would have been trumped. Tomorrow's Problem V Q 10 9 7 6 5 4 3 1 * S 5 * 8 (Dealer: South. East-West vulnerable. ) If ever a player had a hand perfectly suited to pre-emptive bidding, it was South on this deal. T?tq hand was so woefully worthless at anything except hearts that the defense against the opponents' bid would devolve entirely upon hia partner. So he opened with 4-Hearts. West was the positive type of player who hates to be silenced. Acting almost as If tho hostile shutout guaranteed hia side possessed a 4, A K Q 9 V A K J 8 6 4 4 A K 3 4, None (Dealer: South. Both sides vulnerable.) After South's 2-Hearts and North's 2-No trump, why should South now bid 3-Spadea instead of rebidding his six-card suit first? 1P3£ br Krng Feihim Syndicate. IDC.
