At these tables, therefore, the West player opened the nine of clubs. Dummy won with the king of clubs and returned the jack of hearts for ?t pretended finesse. West therefore got his ace of hearts and could exit safely with another club. In each of these cases the slam was set when South misRuesscd the trumps. In short some declarers made the slam by careful · thought. And some defenders defeated the slam by givintj the declarer nothing to think about. ·JACOBY ON CANASTA 5 Essential being 6 Bugle call 7 Iroquoian Indian 8 Brilliant colors 9 Universal language 10 Ailments 11 Oriental 12 Keep 17 Rough lava 25 Nested boxes 26 Halt! 27 Chickens document experts are. The they vary some- how good the answer is that what, just as some big league baseball players are better than others. All of the experts are pretty good, however, chiefly because they have trained them- · selves to think clearly and carefully at the bridge table. Today's hand, played at a recent national championship, shows the sort of thinking that goes on when expert meets expert. The hand was played at many tables, and in most cases South got to six diamonds. This was a very reasonable contract, of course, depending only on "finding" the queen of diamonds. At some tables the West player opened the ace of hearts. At these tables, the South player reasoned something like this: "Why did West open an ace against the slam contract? Did he have reason to believe that his ace would go to sleep if he failed to take it at once? Or did he have a possible trump trick, and was he therefore cashing a side ace to make sure of setting the slam?" : -In each of these cases South felt iairly sure that West had no sound reason for feeling nervous about his ace of hearts. Each of them therefore decided to finesse through West for the queen of diamonds. Thf finesse succeeded, and the slam was made. At * few tab}es, West was sure that to open the ace of hearts ·would cause South to guess the location of the queen of diamonds. North's jump to five diamonds indicated that a high diamond would turn up in the dummy, so West WHEN TO TAKE DISCARD PILE By OSWALD JACOBY Written For NEA Scrvic/s "The player at your right discards a card that you can meld," states a San Francisco correspondent. Under what circumstances is it wise for you to draw from the stock pile instead of taking the discard pile? 1 ' It is very often the right play when the discard pile contains only four or six cards. It is usually the right play when the discard pile contains only two cards. Notice the even numbers. M you have picked up the discard pile last, it will contain four cards when it comes around to you again. If your partner has picked up the discard pile last, it will contain two cards when it comes to you for the, first time, and six cards when it comes to you the next time. In general, you refuse to take the discard pile only when your side is in such control of the situation that you expect to get it later on anyhow. This means that you or your partner has taxen the pile last. It is quite different if the opponents have picked up the pile last. Then you are eager to get even a small number of cards so as to meld and either compete for the pile or meld out quickly. This means that you would' pick up a discard pile of three, five, or seven cards. You might even pick up a discard pile of only one card. These principles apply only when at least one side has melded. At the very beginning of a hand, before either side has melded, you are seldom interested in a discard pile of only one or two cards. But you are interested as soon as that pile contains four or more cards. After all, a first pile of four cards. may allow you to make the initial meld and still retain ten or eleven cards in your hand. It almost never is wise to pass up a discard pile of eight or more cards. A possible exception occurs when both opponents are down to only three or four cards and are obviously struggling to go out and are being forced to make dangerous discards. In this situation you pick up the discard pile only when it contains some very useful cards. Otherwise, 13 Pauses 14 Interstices 15 Shade tree 16 Palatable 18 Type of boat 19 Neaps (ab.)
