Last year an article appeared in Popular Bridgde in which Edwin Kantar reported on hands played during the 1974 Bridge Week in Los Angeles. Over 8,000 tables of bridge buffs competed in the tournament and Kantar was the declarer in today's deal. North's questionable raise to three no- trump was based on his confidence in Kantar's play of the hand. West's lead of the heart deuce (instead of his fourth highest) indicated his inability to count. Kantar commented that one of them was right. On the opening lead declarer played low from the board and East's seven forced the queen. Next came a diamond to the ace and a diamond back, covered by the jack and queen. West discarded the deuce of spades. A third diamond lost to the king as West pitched a heart. East exited with a spade to dummy's ace. Declarer then played a fourth diamond, both opponents shedding spades leaving this position: North 4- . ¥ J 8 6 + 10 4 Q J 5 West East 4 J 4 K 10 9 ¥ A 10 9 ? - · - ' ' * 4 A 84 4 1 0 9 6 2 South 4 Q 7 ¥ Q5 , A 4 K 7 3 Kantar ended with: "I led the queen of clubs which was allowed to hold. I continued with a second club/which East won and exited with a third, setting up a long club for East. Now I was helpless, as West could always get to East with a spade. Had West won the first club I would have made the hand as I would have been able to set up my ninth trick in hearts. Worse, If after winning the queen of .clubs I had played my good diamond, discarding a heart, West would have been strangely squeezed in three suits."
