West discarded the 9 of Spades; Dummy the 8 of Spades; and East the'Deuce oi Diamonds, To trick nine, Declarer led the Queen ol Diamonds, West played'the 7, Dummy the Ace, and East the 8-spot. Mr. McDIarmid refuted the tempting Diamond finesse bec»us« his Ace of Diamonds insured 'game.

Though an Ace-Queen suit is not oijcncd against a trump contract if It can be avoided, the longest suli generally should be led iigalnst a No Trump regardless of what cards It contains, unless that tult has been adversely bid. North's hand became Dummy, and from It Declarer played the u f Spades. Mrs. Strceter, East, ilaycd the 10, and Declarer th^ nek. With the lead in ills OKU land, Declarer was then in a [»- ition to finesse Um Diamonds, of iiich lie hel. delght in his com- liied hands; but he appreciated !mt If the finesse lost, ^Mrs. S'.rccl- r. East, would lead Spades thru Declarer's King-3, and West, holing Ace-Queen as was clearly sliown y the cards played to the first rick, would bo able to capture De- ] lavcr's high Spade and then run he entire suit, saving game. A inesse lost to.

Even it Declarer had not won this fmcssp, h» still would have been in position .0 take three Club tricks, and East- would not..have beeii in the lead, riicso three Club tricks, with tlie Sjiaile ajid one Heart already won. the three more Hearts he was i ;ure (o win, and tlie Ace of Dia- j monds, 'Wiirc .all he needed for ;auie.

Dummy's next lead was llic Trey of Hearts, to which Enit followed with Ihe 10, South willi tecting the King of Diamonds, Mi Shepard, West, took care to-diy card the 9 of Spades on the ac, of Hearts,- playing the 9 inste'ai of the Deuce to give the imprej> sion that he had had only a foui- card Spade suit originally; Mrs Stree'er, - appreciating that he. partner was trying to make Declarer misplace the King-of Diamonds, did her part by discarding the Deuce of- Diamonds- on this trick. On the, next trick Mr. Shep- arrt..contlnueti his deceptive,.tactics when the Queen of Dlaijioi)d3:w«s led by playing the 7, not the, Trey But Declarer did not' swahow tne bait offered him by his adversaries H did look to him as it Mr. Shepard had the King of Diamonds, bui the business of the Declarer is to wliv a game when he can ... not to FEBRUARY 12, 1930 'Isk .It for "a possible or probiblu lam ... so he refused the finsssc.
