Inc Taking precautions By James Jacoby The sudden leap to six no-trump by North was a bit tempestuous. It would not have been at all remarkable for South to have a solid club suit and a heart stopper consisting of the Q-J, for example, in which event the contract might be immediately set. But declarer's actual hand presented quite a good play for 12 tricks at no-trump. Unfortunately South botched the play. See if you would have done the same. Declarer won the heart king and played the club king, ducked all around as dummy shed a heart. Another high club next, also ducked, as declarer let another heart go in dummy. Now the third club was taken by the ace, and wouldn't you, just like declarer, play dummy's low spade? With East showing out now in clubs, declarer has to go after diamonds and, ugly to behold, East has four to the jack. Of course the spades do behave, but it is too late to go back and retain the fourth spade in dummy, and so most probably you, like today's declarer, are set a trick. What's the answer? Before going after the club suit, declarer should play dummy's diamond king and then the queen in his hand. If diamonds split, there will never be any problem. If not, declarer will know to keep all four spades in dummy just in case the club suit also is going to divide badly. Since the clubs do break badly, that little bit of foresight pays a handsome dividend. After bad luck in botlt minor suits, it seems fair that spades split 3-3 with the queen located favorably. And finally, that's enough to make the slam. *19M NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSN.
