Scottish Academy (abbr.) 52 Over (poet.) (c)I986 by NEA. Inc Don't discard till you're sure By James Jacoby Bidding all the way to seven hearts was a bit much. Perhaps South expected dummy to have a more robust spade suit in view of the strong opening bid of two clubs. Although I like opening the North hand with a strong two-bid (artificial or not), many experts would prefer an initial bid of only one spade. Like it or not, you find yourself in seven hearts. Cover the East-West hands with your thumbs and plan the play. Declarer played four rounds of trump, discarding two small diamonds from dummy. He reasoned that there was a good chance that the spade suit would come home for him. All he needed to find was a 3-3 spade split, or a doubleton queen of spades in either hand. If he relied on the diamond finesse instead, he would need the king onside plus a 3-2 diamond split. Alas, because East held four spades to the queen, the contract was doomed on declarer's line of play. Declarer can actually combine both lines of play with little risk. After playing two rounds of hearts, he should then play A-K of spades and ruff a spade. If the spade queen drops, he can safely draw trumps, throwing diamonds from dummy. But with the spade suit not coming in, he can now pull trumps while throwing useless spades from dummy, and then fall back on the diamond finesse. The key to the proper play is not forcing dummy to discard before you know which suit you must rely upon to make your contract. '1986 NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSN.
