Inc A chance to be brilliant By James Jacoby With favorable vulnerability the player in third seat will sometimes make a weak two-bid with only a five- card suit, as East did. South overcalled with two no-trump, showing his balanced 17 high-card points, and North was happy to raise to game. i Botfi declarer and defender were on their toes early. East put in the 10 of hearts, but declarer ducked. East continued with the queen and South won the king. It would now be fatal for declarer to attempt to force out the club ace, so he played K-Q and another diamond, finessing the 10 when •< West showed up with four to the jack. As the play of diamonds continued, East had to make four discards, and he let all of his clubs go. That gave South a blueprint. East had started with five hearts and only one diamond, and he had discarded four clubs. He must have three spades left, obviously headed by the king. So declarer took a spade finesse and exited with a heart. East could do no better than take his remaining heart tricks and then lead away from the K-10 of spades. All of this could have been countered by an unusual "brilliancy" by West. If, on the second high diamond played by South, West wastes the jack, then declarer will be inclined to overtake in dummy to establish an extra entry there. This will allow declarer to take a second spade finesse. When East shows out after declarer overtakes his diamond queen, South will realize that he has been taken in by an •extremely farsighted play by West. A new book by James Jacoby and his father, the late Oswald Jacoby; is now available at bookstores. lt,is "Jacoby on Card Games." published by Pharos Books. © 19(7.

If you take th*m for granted and are not fully appreciative, the privileges you're accorded might be withdrawn. VWOO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) In a commercial dealing today, it's best to be a bit skeptical instead of believing everything you are told by One who wants to make a deal with you. Know where to look 1 for romance and you'll find it. The Astro-Graph Matchmaker set instantly reveals which signs are romantically perfect for you. Mail S2 to. Matchmaker, P.O. Box 91428, Cleveland, OH 441013428. LNMA (S*pt. 23-Oct. 23) Don't let an associate make an important decision for you today. If you're too lackadaisical to protect your own interests, you may have to pay the piper. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Mov. 22) Problems you may have to overcome today could be of your own making. The aspects indicate you might fail to use your customary industriousness. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Be careful today that you are not drawn into a petty i political situation: Two friends may try to get the best of one another. Both may make you their scapegoat. CAPRICORN (OK. 22-J»n. 19) "Pride goeth before a fall," says an old proverb. Sticky situations can be avoided today if you don't let your ego override your innate good sense. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-F»b. 19) In order to further your ends today, you may make some big promises to people who help you. Unfortunately, you'll be taken literally and be expected to produce later. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Your compassion for the underdog makes you rather vulnerable today. You might be drawn into something where another's excuses become your liabilities. ARIES (March 21-April 19) Judgments you make today may lean toward what you want them to be instead of what they should be, This is a sound operal- ing premise. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) In an anxious attempt to expedite a difficult matter today, you might take shortcuts that are impractical and create more problems than they solve. GEMINI (May 21-Jun« 20) Overindulgence is something to be mindful of today. Good things will be doubly appreciated if you partake of them in small quantities. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Wishy- washy decisions will not inspire subordinates today. If you want to impress those in your charge, be decisive and firm. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Be careful today that you're not too boastful .about something you've recently accomplished. It will sound better if you let others toot your horn. © 1»«7.
