There was nothing in North's bidding to suggest that he had values that would justify a slam contract. But this time South was lucky, since the North cards supported quite a decent play for six hearts. Most overbidders play their cards well (they have to, to avoid going broke), and South was no exception. He won the ace of diamonds and drew trumps. He could see that he had all 13 tricks if the jack of clubs fell under the Q-K-A. If it didn't, he might need to find either the K-Q of spades or any doubleton spade honor in the East hand. All of those chances improved the probability of the slam succeeding, but declarer wanted even more insurance. And he found it. Instead of playing queen and a club, he led the club nine from his hand and overtook with the 10 in dummy. Naturally East won the jack and returned a diamond. Declarer trumped, overtook the club queen in dummy and was able to discard three losing spades on the good clubs. Although this play sacrificed the best chance for a overtrick, it paid off in today's layout, and the slam was made. But what if East had allowed the club 10 to win the trick? Declarer can now play a spade to his jack. West will win the queen and try to cash a diamond. South will ruff and play the club queen to the A-K. When the club jack does not fall, South can now try another spade finesse. That wins, and the slam is still made. A new book by James Jacoby and his father, the late Oswald Jacoby, is now available at bookstores. It is "Jacoby on Card Games,' published by Pharos Books. © 19«7, NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSN Astrogroph Bernice Bede Osol cfour ^Birthday Friday, Aug. 21,1987 Luck witl play a prominent role in your affairs in the year ahead, just at the time you'll need it the most.
