South can foil thie plot by cutting communication between East and West; he must prevent West from'gaining the lead. After winning the club return at the second trick declarer myst cash the top spades and lead the riine of spades. When West plays low, declarer discards dummy's remaining diamond. EXCHANGE OF TRICKS East wins an unexpected spade trick but is robbed of an diamond trick. Moreover, he is robbed of the club ruff since West cannot gain the lead. South can comfortably draw trumps and run the clubs. South might get away with this coup even if West had a spade honor. When South leads the nine of spades it looks as -though he intends to ruff in dummy. If West has a spade honor and fails to play it, South may achieve an impossible as well as nameless coup. DAILY iQUESTION As dealer, yoU hold: Spades A10, Hearts J 9 8 4, Diamonds J 4, Clubs K Q iO 8 4. What do yoii say? ANSWER: Pass. You have an optional opening bid, but should pass because your long suit is a minor and because too much of your strength is in the form of jacks. Change both jacks to low cards and give yourself A-Q instead of A-10 of spades, and you would open the bidding with one club. IT U;A5 A TWELVE ^ JNCH RULER? I SEE,..
