Inc. 26 Knowing when to strip By James Jacoby Suppose you were an undercover agent sneaking into a nudist colony. Naturally you'd strip. When you're declarer with plenty of trumps and entries to both hands, try to remember to do the same thing. It can't hurt and may help. Declarer trumped the opening lead and played ace and a diamond. West continued clubs. Declarer ruffed and played another diamond. When that suit failed to split, declarer eventually had to play the heart suit for himself. Because of the unfavorable location of the heart jack, he had to lose two heart tricks and his contract. Stripping the dummy of the club suit before playing diamonds would have solved declarer's problem. Here is the correct sequence of plays. At trick two, declarer plays a low spade to dummy's eight. He then trumps a second club. A spade to dummy's ace is followed by a ruff of dummy's last club. Only then does South play ace and a diamond, on which West plays the queen. The defenders are now helpless. East cannot overtake with the king and play the jack because that will make dummy's fourth diamond a winner. If West is left on lead, he must either play away from the ace of hearts or must play another club, allowing declarer to ruff in dummy while discarding a loser from his hand. Notice that this strategy is correct because you welcome the defenders' attacking the heart suit. If your hearts were weaker, like A-x-x opposite J-x- x, you v/ould play differently, since your best hope would be that the diamond suit was splitting and that the defenders would not switch to hearts. f ltt> NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSN.
