He was very proud of the way h e guessed the end position." Jim: "You say he was a pretty good player. Obviously, he wasn't a very good player because he wouldn't have needed to guess the end position." Oswald: "That's correct West won the ace and king of hearts and shifted to the four of diamonds in spite of his partner's high-low in hearts. South played the ace of diamonds. Then he ran off all his trumps while discarding down to the queen of diamonds and ace-queen of clubs in dummy. East, discarding in back of dummy wound up holding the king- eight of diamonds and the singleton king of clubs. It was up to South to decide if East had blanked the diamond king and kept the club king guarded. South did make the right decision." Jim: "Most of our readers will have seen ,that South could have avoided that final guess if he had just used the R in the code word ARCH." Oswald: "R stands for Review the bidding. If South had reviewed the bidding he would have seen that West had dealt and passed when holding six hearts to the four top honors. This would mark East with both minor-suit kings." Jim: "The sure thing play would be to lead dummy's last heart at trick four to make sure that East didn't hold another card in that suit. Then South could draw trumps, lead his second diamond and play dummy's nine. East would be between that rock and a hard place with no lead to help him." 28 The bidding has been: West North East South J* IV 1N.T. Pass ?
