WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 4, 1963 Jacoby On Bridge No Snnriflcn Blrt Needed BY OSWALD .TACOBV Ncwnpivper Enterprise Assn. The K»mc wns duplicate and West's opening dlnmond lead was expensive because It allowed South to make an overtrick at his six club contract. NORTH <D) « 45 VK1054 • K.632 + K1086 WEST EAST • KJ873 4AQ10942 V0832 VJ76 • 108 •J95 + Q9 +J SOUTH ¥ AQ • AQ74 • A75432 North and South vulnerable North Eaii South West Pass Pass 1 * Pass 1 • Pass 3 • Pass 3 V Pass 4+ Pass 6 Pass Pass Opening lead—• 10 Kast wns very bitter about the lend. He pointed out that not only had North bid a diamond, but that South had given him a jump raise and that both opponents had refrained from bidding spades on their way to the slam. West had no answer. He really had made a bad opening lead, but later on when the scores were tabulated West had his own little say. It •eemed that only two South players hnd played six clubs. Some stopped at five and in all other instances East and West had sacrificed at six spades down five tricks. West felt strongly that East should have overcalled North's diamond with one spade. West would have raised defensively and the stage would have been set for the six spade sacrifice. There is no question but West was right. East was not vulnerable. He had a good six card spade suit. Spade suits should be bid when there is a good opportunity and East had that good opportunity. Incidentally, North deserves considerable credit for his six club bid. He didn't have any aces, but he was able to infer from the bidding that South would have three of them. Obviously, South didn't have a spade stopper. He bad not gone to three no-trump over North's three hearts. In that case South missed all the kings. He just could not have bid so strongly without those three aces.
