BeUy Miller and A PASS IS A GAMBLE A.T ALMOST EVERY stage of the game, whatever you do Is to some extent a gamble, either a aonserva- tivi, sound one or a long shot. Even a pass is a bet that this action will pay you bigger profits than some other course you might pursue There are even times when a pass Is the extreme of a U/ng shot, depending on the opponents to follow It with some kind of I a bid which will give you a higlnfr score than otherwise seems in sight- It by passing, which he did. When East also saw fit to pass and South bid 2-Diamonds, the opponents were off the dangerous .limb. Of course, a better move by South would have been a takeout or informatory double, which North could have passed, but South didn't think of that. When the 2-Diamondb reached North, he felt sure that East would not let it drop there whan his partner had made a vulnerable ovvrcall. So North decided to pass and wait for a chance ttf take a crack at some hoped-for bid. East passed, and South was In a terrible contract, going down two for a clear bottom score. Most North-South pairs bid naturally and made a No trump game on the deal. Tomorrow's Problem FREEMAN C. MILLER Freeman C.

East-West vulnerable.) North and South had been having a very Indifferent g-air.e up to the time that this deal came to theni in a tournament. So North was Itching- to do something unusual which would produce a big top score for his side. South opened the bidding with 1-Diamond and West stuck his neck out with a very bad vulnerable overcall of 1 - Spade. Here was North's chance. If he doubled this, no takeout by the vulnerable opponents could have saved them from disaster. North was bent on bigger game, however, and thought he could lure (Dealer: East Neither side vulnerable.)
