Jacoby on brid By IHm NOIITH 1053 __ WEST AQ1085 KAftV SOBSH (D) ¥A52 4KQJ7 North-South West North East South 3N.T. Opening lead— It was the last board of the last duplicate of the year. Y and Z who had renewed their old partnership after 40 years away from the card table needed a good score on the last board to top the field. When Z opened with two no- trump Y looked at his two queens and raised happily to game. He hoped that Z would have the 21 or 22 points needed for a two no -trump opening in JACOBY MODERN, but he wasn't worried. He knew the old auction expert would make the hand if there was any way to do so. • Z had the full 22 points but Y's queen of -hearts disappeared into thin air after East covered it with the king at trick one. Z let East hold that trick and allowed West to hold the second heart, but was forced to win the third lead of that suit. He led out his king of diamonds in the hope that the ace would cover it, but East was smart enough to let the king; hold that trick and the queen the next one. 'East did win the third diamond and returned a spade. Z won the spade lead, cashed his last diamond and finally had to start on the club suit. He considered playing his last high spade and leading a third spade in hope of an end play, but he didn't think that .would work. Instead Z went after the clubs using a rapier rather than a bludgeon. He played the jack and overtook with dummy's queen. East couldnt' afford to win. He would be setting up the rest of the suit for dummy so East ducked. Now Z led and finessed the club 10 to wind up with three clubs, three diamonds, two spades, one heart and his contract. 31 • The bidding has been: West North • East South. 1*' IV 1* Pass 2N.T.
