Jacoby On Bridge 'String' Hands Win Points At Tourney By OSWALD JACOBY Written Tor NBA Service Bridge fans who have never played In a tournament may be puzzled when they read about the "swing" hands in the Vanderbilt Cup Tournament, which begins in New York tomorrow night. It is less puzzling if you remember that the Vanderbilt is a contest for bridge teams of four players per team. Let's suppose that in one of these contests a team of four women is playing against a team of four men. The women would occupy the North and South seats at one table, with men in thfe East and West seats. In another room the arrangement would be different, with the other two women occupying the East and West seats, and the two men North and South. Cresap Homemakers will meet at 9:30 tomorrow morning at the home of Mrs. Edward Lewis, Winchester Road.

PHONE 5968 An unusual example of a swing, shown in today's hand, decided the championship in the 1947 Vanderbilt Cup Tournament. The victorious team made a profit with the North-South cards in one room and another profit with the East-West cards in the other room. In the first room South played the hand at six hearts doubled. opened the ace of .spades, and South ruffed. He laid down the ace and king of clubs, rufferl a club in dummy with the nine nf hearts, and then led the king of hearts from dummy. East could take the ace of hearts, but then South could claim the rest. The slam was worth a score of 1660 points in this room. In the other room tha bidding began in much the same way. When West, bid five spades, however. North doubled—and South allowed the double lo stand. The contract of five spades, played by, could have been defeated if North had opened a club. Instead, North opened the king of hearts, and West made the contract., began by taking the first trick with the ace of hearts. He drew three rounds of trumps and then took five diamond tricks, discardine two. club. 1 ; in the process. He could thru give up one heart and one •rump, scorine 850 points for making his contract.. The winning team got 1660 point,? in the first room and R50 points In the second room for a "swing" of 2510 points.
