The new partnership obtained one of the many top scores by setting South three tricks at a one no-trump contract. Chuck opened his fourth best club. He decided that his ace of spades would be worth more if he held it back and waited for someone to lead the suit to him. It sure was! Ira won the first trick with the ace and returned the suit. Chuck's 10 covered declarer's nine and held the trick. A third club knocked out dummy's king. Ira discarded the four of spades. South might well have taken his other four top tricks and conceded down two, but he wanted to try for more. He led a diamond to his ace and a second diamond toward dummy's queen. That queen lost to Ira's king and Ira cashed his jack. South discarded the three of spades and Chuck let the deuce of hearts go. This clearly told Ira to lead a spade and he did just that. Chuck won with the ace and cashed his two good clubs. Poor South had to make two discards. The first was easy. He jettisoned the six of hearts. The last' was a lot harder. He couldn't afford to unguard his queen of spades so he had to throw away one of his three top hearts. Now it was simple for Chuck to put South on lead with a heart and let Ira take the last two tricks with his king and jack of spades. The bidding has been: West North East South 1* IV Pass Pass IN.T. Pass 2* Pass* ?. You, South, hold: 4K6 VA97 •KQ4 +AQJ32 What do you do now? A—Bid three diamonds. TOOT partner doesn't have much of a hand, but he may have enough for game. In any event three diamond* should be safe. TODAY'S QUESTION Instead of passing, your partner has bid two diamonds directly over West?s one heart, "What do you do now? Answer Tomorrow Law for today Q. I was convicted of forgery and did three years plus probation. I've been in no trouble since. When can I vote in elections again? A. There is no set waiting period. Only the governor can restore the right to vote or serve on a jury when a person has been convicted of an infamous crime in Illinois. The right to hold office cannot be restored even by the governor — it is lost forever. —Illinois State Bar Assu.
