Inc Not quite good enough By James Jacoby It hurts me to fault Willy Nilly for the way he played today's slam, because he exercised so much more skill than usual. He won dummy's ace of clubs, drew two rounds of trumps and then played dummy's A-K of hearts (to protect against East holding the doub- ieton queen). He then ruffed a club and K 'ayed toward dummy's J-7 of hearts. e would establish a good trick whenever the suit divided or West held the quejr. Unfortunately East had the Q- lOfand South had to fall back on the diamond finesse. When that also lost, poor Willy had lost another contract that Careful Charlie would have made. Of course Charlie is a player who always respects the value of seven- spots. What would he have done? Charlie would have won the club ace and ruffed a club with a high trump. He would have played a spade to dummy's eight and ruffed another club high. Next he would have led a spade to dummy's 10 and ruffed the last club from dummy. Charlie would then have played a heart toward dummy. If West played the five or six, he would have simply inserted the seven. Of course West had the eight to play. So declarer would have won dummy's ace and returned to his hand with a trump. Now another heart. When West played the nine, Charlie would have finessed the jack. East would have won the queen and have either led back into the dummy's K-7 or tried diamonds, going into dummy's A-Q. Either way, declarer would have made 12 tricks. 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. © It87.
