Rhone 4600 for a WANT AD Taker EVENING TIMES, CUMBERLAND, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 1952 FIVE • JACOBY ON BRIDGE Think Before You Start Hand's Play By OSWALD JACOBY Written for NEA Service The approach of the team tournament for the Vanderbilt Cup, scheduled to begin late next week in New Yoric, reminds me of a hand played by the cup donor, Harold S. VanderbUt. As most bridge players know, Vanderbilt "invented 1 contract bridge during an ocean voyage in November, 1925, and he has also been one of the outstanding players of the game since that time. In the hand shown today, played by Vanderbilt some years ago in a tournament played for his own cup. West led the ten of diamonds. An Immediate finesse would have been fatal, since East would have taken the king of. diamonds and returned the queen of clubs. strength because he know; that you could not bid freely over one spade. TODAY'S QUESTION The bidding is the same as Jn the! question just answered. You, Ssuth.i hold: Spades 9-4-2, Hearts 6-3, Dia-; monds Q-8-3, Clubs J-8-5-4-2. What' do you do?

East naturally played low, and Vanderbilt discarded his remaining diamond. West won with the queen of epades and returned his last spade to kill dummy's ten. East ruffed, and Vanderbilt overruffed -with the jack. He continued with a low trump to dummy's nine in order to lead the queen of diamonds through East. East covered with the king of diamonds, and Vanderbilt ruffed Tvith the king of hearts. He could then lead his last low trump • to dummy's ten in order to cash the jack of diamonds. Since this enabled him to discard a club, Vanderbilt tost only two club tricks and the queen of spades and therefore made his contract. Q—The bidding has been: North East South West 1 Heart 1 Spade Pass Pass; Double Pass ? You, South, hold: Spades K-J-6, Hearts 9-4-2, Diamonds Q-10-7, Clubs J-8-5-4. What do you do?
