I J A handy play for a rainy day By James Jacoby On a good day, today's declarer would score up the heart slam with an overtrick. He would win dummy's ace of spades, draw trumps and then play on clubs. If the club jack came down, he could throw his spade loser on the fourth club and take a diamond finesse for 13 tricks. But the experienced player knows that there are not that many good days at the bridge table. Forget the overtrick, but look for the best percentage play to get your 12 tricks. After a little study, even the novice knows about elimination plays. You draw trumps, eliminate a suit or two. and then put one of the defenders on lead so that anything he plays for you will be helpful. It's easy to set up such a play when you have plenty of trumps. It's also possible to set up a partial elimination, and that's the secret of success with the current deal. Declarer should win dummy's ace of spades, play a heart back to his 10 and another heart to dummy's queen. That leaves a trump still outstanding with the defenders. Now let declarer play a second spade. West wins the queen, and since he does not have a trump to play, he must either continue spades, allowing declarer to trump in dummy while discarding a loser from his hand, or lead a minor-suit card, which will assure 12 tricks another way. Notice that declarer had nothing to lose with this play — it simply gave him a sure shot whenever West started with only two hearts. 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. © 1917. NEWSPAPER ENTKRPRtSE ASS.N.
