BE AT THE CONTROLS WITH WE. VOU SEE, THINGS POU SO CROWDED WHEW THEY ARE ORGANIZED YOU WANT THE TRUTH SNAKE TALES» by Sots Road map for an end play By James Jacoby I like weak two-bids, but I freely admit that their use can occasionally backfire. Here is a case in point. West had a suit with strong intermediate cards, and his seven high-card points were enough for a weak two-bid. His opponents then proceeded to slam. Although the declarer failed, his approach was reasonable. He won the opening lead, drew trumps ending in dummy, cashed the other high diamond and then played a low club, ducking it into West's hand. His hope was that West held a singleton club and would now have to lead away from his heart king. West naturally won the club 10 and simply played the king right back. Now South had to eventually lose a heart trick. Declarer should do better. Knowing that West's weak two-bid showed 6-11 high-card points, he should piay West for the club king. Accordingly, at trick two he should lay down the ace of clubs. Now, after drawing trumps and playing the other high diamond, he ducks a club into the king. West must now either lead away from the heart king or give declarer a sluff and ruff in diamonds. Astute readers will wonder what happens -if West unblocks the club king when declarer plays the ace. In that event, declarer proceeds as before. When declarer plays the second club from dummy, East will have to put up the jack (otherwise West is stuf fed-in with the 10). The queen will now take the jack and 10, the seven will force out the nine, and dummy's club eight wiii take care of declarer's losing heart.
