Against vulnerable opponents West finds the sacrifice tempting since East’s jump to three hearts promises length in hearts some distribution and little defease However sacrifices do not come cheaply And whatever the penalty the opponents remain vulnerable and therefore favorites to win the rubber When Dr John Fisher held West ’s cards he opted to defend against the vulnerable game If you agree with Dr Fisher’s decision how would you defend after your heart king cashes and partner plays a noncommittal five? Dr Fisher realized that whatever tricks his side could win in trumps or diamonds could not disappear What could go away on dummy’s diamonds was a trick in clubs Obviously a dub shift was vital at trick two but which dub to lead? Dr Fisher chose the club queen! Dummy’s king would win a club trick whidiever dub he led so why not concede it early rather than late? This confident shift destroyed Souths game Dummy's king won but when East won his trump ace his dub return trapjted South’s jack and South suffered a one-trick seL Note that leading the ace and another dub at tricks two and three won’t do South’s only option is to finesse to his jack and instead of one down he scores 10 tricks FRIJOLES (free-HO-leez) In Southwestern US WORD beans grown for food Average mark 24 words Tune i i u r limit 45 minutes Can you find 43 or more words in FRIJOLES?
