South lost control of the play It wasn't his fault however "just keep your eje on East and see how he waited for the right moment to strike the decisive blow West opened the king of dia- Jtnonds, and South ruffed with the six South next led the eight of YOU* TAST« ENJOY ATREAT- he other is doing 7 " When the opponents hoaits towards dummy s king, hop- infi to land in dummy for the club finesse East let dummy win the tuck. If he took I he ace of hearls East could return a diamond, but South would discard instead of rulfmg West would take the second defensive tuck with the ace of diamonds and return a spade Dummy would win with the nee of spades to lead a club South would take the queen and ace of clubs and ruff a third club in dummj East could then over-ruff for the thud defensive trick, but the rest would be South s When dummy won the second tiick with the king of hearts, declarer took the club finesse, cashed the ace of clubs and ruffed a club m dummy with the five of hearts Once more East bided his time He refused to over-ruff If East makes the mistake of over-iuffing, South makes the con- tiact East returns a diamond, and South discards West takes the ace of diamonds and returns a spade. Dummy wins and returns the seven of hearts, and East can take only the ace of hearts When East refused to over-ruff, declaier returned the seven of i hearts from the dummy This was the moment for which East had been waiting He stepped up with the ace of hearts and put dummy m by returning a spade Now declarer couldn t get out of dummy except bv ruffing a spade or a diamond This brought htm down *o one trump, while East still had two trumps South then discovered that he had lost control of he hand No matter how he wriggled and squirmed he could win only nine tricks. 1,5 Depicted insect 8 These creatures travel in a long 12 Rake 13 Meadow 14 Tart 15 Central 16 Repoies IB Finish 19 Indian rnulbem 20AUues 22Depait 23 Remove 25 Woody plant 27Fmt m.m 28 OiRan"; of heauiiK 2 9 ' P w c h State" 30To (prefix) 31 It pity-. otliei insects 32 Note of hutle 33 Walked 35Citv m SBShatpcn 39 Nclw. 01 k 40 Pionoun 41 Wastes time ru ea 48 Knork 50 Rodents 51 High pnesl 52 Pate 54 Soak flax 55 Empty 56 Care for 57 Middle (comb, f o r m ) SBFoimeily 1 Armed fleet 2 Distuibed 3 Mire 4 Biblical pronoun 5 To the sheltered side 6 Cape 7 Makes lace edging 8 Musical note S Chill 10 Delay $ 11 Dasheen 16 Railroad (nb ) 17 Direction (ab ) 20 Required 21 Ocean liners 24 Body of water 26 City in Wisconsin 33 Craving for liquids 34 Turn 36 Type style 37 Mock 42 Exclamation 43 It is found in climates 44 Suffer (Scot 45 Permits 46 Plural suffix 49 Writing tool 51 Eternity 53 Paid (ab ) 55 Verso (ab ) Quit* A Boy 3 M 8 28 IB 10 II YM BUGS BUNNI Mental Giant H7 I GET A TAKT OUTA \ \wt-teRE HE CAN'T FINP IT/ THAT BUSH LOOK* LIKE HEY' EL-MEJ?

Then, depending on the nature of jour own hand, you decide whether to freeze the pack and play offensivelj or whether to assume the defensive When there are seveial melds on the table, and very few caids in an opponents hand, vou should have no trouble m finding sate discaids A freeze is usually indicated, unless one opponent has kept his full hand and may therefore become a menace. If--the opponents are good plajr- ers and therefore meld only what is unavoidable, you must give up the idea of competing for the discard pile You cant fight against a hand of 20 cards when you have only II cards of your own Your course is to play for out. Get rid of cards that were contained m that first pack You can never make good use of those cards, and there is no advantage in cluttering your hand with them You must make room for caids that have a chance to develop into canastas--or at least one canasta Even if you cannot mak« the count, jourself, you must try to keep caids that will fit your partner's likeh nieldt and vou must hope that he can eventually accumulate enough to make the initial meld Mi Jacoby is unable to answer individual questions on Canasta fiom readers However, he will in. elude the most frequently asked questions in his column.
