BARCLAY ON BRIDGE B y S h e p a r d B a r c l a y ·The Authority on Authorities" PJLAYING PBOBABZLMIES ALL OBSERVANT players have learned that the holder oJ a weak hand is likely to make a short-suit lead against a no trump contract, In the hope that he may hit upon the long suit ot his partner, who probably haa some side re-entries for it. Conversely, someone who has made a length-showing fourth-best lead is likely to have high cards for re-entries right in his own hand. Bearing- that in mind can guide the declarer in his selection of the way to play any particular suit, counting the long-suit leader ae more likely than his partner to hold any particular high card. A K J 6 4 Q 10 S 5 5 (Dealer: North. North-South vulnerable), South got into a No trump game contract on this deal by the fairly ximple procedure o£ North's 1-Spade bid. Ills own 2-Cluba, North's - 2- Spades, Soutli's 2-No trump and UorLYs o-No trump. When West led the lieait 2, South promptly placed four cards of the suit in his hand, but more important in this case reckoned that any single high honor was a bit more likely to bc ncld by him than by East. When East played the Q on the dummy's low card, that made it still more likely that East lacked any particular high, honor. After South took the first trick with the heart K, he played over to the club A, then led the club 4 back. East played the 2, and South faced the critical play of the hand. If West had the K, the 10 was the correct choice; if the J, the Q, wouM be better. Reckoning: the K probably with West, South played the 10, which forced the K. West offered the A and another heart, then South ran game by the simple expedient of being successful with the spade finesse. If South had played the Q on that second round club trick, he would have been set either two or three tricks, depending on what he did next time he was in the lead.
