Alton Evening telegraph Tuesday, Dec. 29, 1970 Jacoby on bridge By OSWALD & JAMES JACOBY NORTH 4K53 VJ9642 4K72 _ _ TRBST EAS1 QJ10 SOUTH AAJ9642 VA10 J A4& A6- Bart-West Wfoierafcte west Kotfh East Sonfh Pass Pass Pass Opening lead— 4 Q The late George Kaufman . was one of America's greatest .playwrights. He was also an avid bridge player. He added many touches of humor to the game — not by his play — but by his remarks. When , speaking of today's Souih, George remarked, "There are two ways to tell when he has a good hand. First, his face lights up. Second, he does something wrong with it." There was nothing wrong with South's bidding, although his partner was nervous when he saw that South was thinking about slam. His play to trick one was also correct. He .won the .diamond lead with his ace, Trick two. was a different story. He led a spade to dummy's king. At this point the contract had gone to that land from whence no traveler returns. The combination fo the sure trump loser and four hearts to the king-queen in the West hand was too much for him. Let's see how he could have made the hand. He should, take his ace of spades at trick two. Then he should follow up by playing ace and 10 of hearts. West" would be" in with the queen and would play the Jack of diamonds. South would now lead the jack of hearts from dummy. East would discard and South would discard his last diamond. West would have nothing better to do than to take his king and lead a third diamond. South^ would ruff that, enter dummy with the king of trumps which had been preserved for that very purpose and discard his six of clubs on dummy's nine of hearts. Suppose trumps and hearts broke some other way. Just check the possibilities. As long as trumps don't break 4-0 the hand is home. The bidding has been: West North East South 1* 1¥ 1* 'Pass ? You, South, Hold: TVhat do you do now? A— Bid two no-trump. Your hand is almost made for ffifo bid. TODAY'S QUESTION Your partner continues to three d*qrmmfe 'What do you do now? Answer Tomorrow Law for today Q. Many years ago I had a child out of wedlock. The father is now financially comfortable. If he should die without a will, is my child entitled to a share of his estate? A. No. Illinois law makes an illegitimate child an heir of his mother and of any maternal ancestor — unless the parents marry and the father acknowledges the child as his own, However, if the father so chooses, be could mm the child as 3 State Bar Msn.
