Pass AH Pass ' ' Opening lead — • J South refused the first two spade tricks but won the third with dummy's ace. South now had nine sure tricks: one spade, two hearts, two diamonds and four clubs. Seeing no problem. South took the top clubs and gave up a club. East took the queen of clubs,and his last spade and then led a heart,,to dummy's ace. 4 Too late, declarer saw that he could not get to his hand for the king pf hearts. Dummy eventually lost a diamond trick, and South was down one. "I've never seen you play so well," North remarked silkily. "You must have been taking lessorii^."'' '' AVOIDS COMPLIMENT , South could avoid this doubtful compliment. After taking the ace of spades he should give up a club immediately. At worst, the defenders can take one club and three spades. Regardless of the return,' South can get to his hand with a high club after taking dummy's ace of hearts. He then cashes the king of hearts and any high club that may remain in his hand, and takes the rest with dummy's high diamonds and good clubs. DAILY QUESTION Partner opens with one heart, and the next player passes. YOU hold: Spades 7 4, Hearts K 9 5 3, Diamonds J 6 4 2, Clubs A K 4. What do you say? ANSWER: Bid three hearts. This forcing raise promises strong trump support of at least four cards with 13 to 16 points, counting disti'ibution as well as high cards. In this case you have 11 pointsjn high cards and 1 point for the doubleton; but you may also count one additional point for the high card in partner's bid suit.
