Just as in most double- dummy problems, the solution Isn't difficult once you've s«en It. If you'd like to work out the answer for yourself, stop reading right here; otherwise, here it Is: The whole point is that you have to do something to prevent the defense from creating the overrun position in diamonds late in the play. Therefore, assuming that the first two leads are the ace and another diamond, you ruff the second one and play a club and trump it In dummy. Now you lead the third round of diamonds, East playing the king, and on it you discard the two of hearts. That gives the defense its second trick, but the only other trick they can get after that Is the ace of spades. East Is out of diamonds and unable to make a return that wlB embarrass you in any way. The purpose behind these plays was to remove a threatening card (the king of diamonds) from East's hand and at the same time discard a heart which hod to be lost in any case. It Is not important that yott wind up losing two diamond tricks instead of a heart and a diamond—what la important i« that you lose only one trump trick instead of two. •ottroAY Monmtra 7:50 (2) MornlnR Devotional 8:00 ( 2 ) World ot Adventure 8:20 (2) Sign On 8:25 (13) Sign on, Anlhrm, Prnyc (2) Heliglous News 8-30 (2) Oral Roberts (13) The Puipit 8:40 (11) Sunday Hymn 8:45 (11) The Living Word 8:00 ( 2 ) The Christophers (11) Lump Unto My Tttt (13) Early Bird Theatre 9:30 t 2) This is Tne Answe (11) Look Up and Live 0:00 ( 2 ) This Ii The Life (11) Camera Three (13) Houston Home Show 0:30 ( 2 ) Frontiers of Faith (11) Washington Conversation (13) Gulf Coast Jamboree 0:55 (11) News with Ned Calmer 1:00 ( 2 ) Soulh Main Baptist C (11) Sunday School of the Air (13) First Methodist Church 1:30 (1.1) Your Area Churches 2:00 ( 2 ) Builder's Showcase (11) Hollywood Playhouse (13) Warm-Up 2:30 (2) Great Voices from Great Books— m) Houston Colt .45'* vi.
