Inc Lose one early to keep control By James Jacoby When South bid three hearts, he was simply looking for the best game contract. When North cue-bid the club ace, it was easy for South to show the diamond ace. North then moved closer to slam by jumping to five spades. South now accepted the invitation with his bid of six. Six spades was not that great a contract. For starters, a bad split in either spades or hearts would be tough to handle. Undaunted, the declarer won the diamond ace and ruffed a diamond, came to the ace of hearts and ruffed another diamond, and then pulled trumps. Next came a finesse of the heart jack. When that lost, the defenders cashed the diamond king to set the hand. The declarer made the right play if the contract were seven spades, but in six he can afford to sacrifice a heart trick early, before trumps are pulled. It's certainly right to ruff a diamond at trick two. Then, when declarer plays a heart, he should play low from both hands. If the heart suit divides 32, there is now no need for the heart finesse. Whatever the defenders return, South will come to his hand with the heart ace, trump one more diamond and then draw the opposing trumps. The remaining good hearts will then take care of the losing diamond and club left in his hand. Our early lessons taught us about taking finesses. Now that we are expert, we've learned how to avoid them. «l»l« NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSN. i i PIPNT know vow) 1HI9 »MAUU1 rAY HAMS'* frA*V. WS'IW THE TECHNICAL APVI»OR» FROM McKEE INPU9TRIB*.
