Today's hand is selected from the first set of 16. West opens the five of clubs, and East 'takes the queen and ace of clubs, following with a third club. South's Jack wins the third round of clubs, of course.

Expecting no trouble, he leads a low trump to dummy's king. West's discard reveals, the sad truth about the trumps. There is frave danger that South will lose two trump tricks. South must abandon trumps at once in order to run the diamonds. On. the third and four diamonds South discards low hearts. Fortunately, East must follow suit. Dummy next takes the ace of hearts and now East is down to four trumps and so is South. A low heart is led from dummy, and East is obliged to ruff with the •even of spades. Does South over- ruff with the jack? That would lose the contract. No matter how South continued, he would then lose two trump tricks. South must under-ruff with the four of spades. Now East must lead from his queen-nine-eight of spades. No matter how he squirms he must yield the last three tricks to declarer. A very ingenious idea, in my opinion. 9—The bidding has been: South West North East 1 Heart 1 Spade Pass Pass You South, hold: Spade 2, Hearts A-K-J-9-4, Diamonds K - 8 - 5 - 3, Clubs A-J-7. What do you do? A—Double. This is a takeout double, of course, asking your partner to bid his best suit. If he is quite strong in' spades, he will pass for penalties. Otherwise he will bid. •i TODAY'S QUESTION The bidding is the same as in the question just answered. You, South, hold: Spade 2, Hearts A-K-J-9-4, Diamonds K-Q-8-5-3, Clubs K-7. What do you do?
