Inc Partner's carding is the best clue By James Jacoby Sometimes the bidding should give a defender a clue to the best defense. If the defender is oblivious to such a clue, he should then be guided by his partner's suggestions in the defensive carding. Against South's four-spade contract West led the diamond king and East played the seven. West continued with the ace and queen. East following with the deuce and eight. Declarer ruffed and immediately played a low club. Without much consideration West played the nine, and dummy's queen won the trick. Declarer now cashed dummy's A-Q-J of spades, came to his hand with the 10 of hearts and cashed the spade king, picking up East's remaining spade. Three more rounds of hearts gave South 10 tricks and his game contract. West should hope that his partner has as much as four spades to the 10. If that is the case, the contract can be defeated if West simply takes the ace of clubs right away and plays another diamond. If dummy ruffs with a spade honor, East's 10 is promoted to a winner. Ifi declarer pitches from dummy in order to ruff in his hand. East discards a heart and later makes a long trump trick. If West can't figure all this out, he should be guided by the fact that his partner was encouraging diamond continuations by his high-low with the 8-7-2 in the suit." 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. © 1S87.
