A-12 Alton Evening Telegraph Thursday, Jan. 7,1971 Jacoby on bridge By OSWALD & JAMES JACOBY KORTIt A K 10 6 3 ¥Q3 4542 ^10853 WEST EAST 487 VJ9875 4KQJ6 VKI042 4107 4K9642 SOUTH (I>) 4AQ542 4A983 + AJ Kone vulnerable "West North East Sonto Pass 2 A Pass Pass Pass Pass Opening lead— 4 10 . 44 J i m Jacoby and his teammates, the World's Champion Dallas Aces, continued their remarkable string of tournament successes by tying with the newly formed team of internationalists George Rapee and BUI Grieve of New York, Peter Fender and Grant Base of San Francisco and Tony Dionisis of New York playing with Harlow Lewis of Philadelphia in the 1970 Reisinger team game. Today's hand shows George using excellent technique at a four-spade contract. He looked over dummy and saw that his problem would be to avoid losing a heart trick. If he could get either opponent to lead from the king he -would be all right. Otherwise, he had to find a way to discard a heart from one hand or the other. One place would be his fourth diamond, but that looked doubtful since the 10- spot lead appeared to be the top of a doubleton. Anyway, George ducked the first diamond, but won the second when West continued the suit. The ace of spades and a spade to dummy's king accounted for all the adverse trumps. Now George was ready to try a new suit. Clubs! He led dummy's three- spot and stuck in his jack after East played the seven. West won and led a club right back. He had nothing better to do since he was sure he could not afford to lead from his king of hearts. East had to play the queen, whereupon dummy's 10 of clubs gave George a parking place for his six of hearts. Nothing sensational, but most expert play isn't sensational. It merely consists of giving the cards a chance to work for you. The bidding has been: Vest North East Sottfe 24' You, South, hold: .*K6 VA97 4KQ4 What do you do now? A— Bid two hearts.
