Inc. Changes in midstream By James Jacoby Sometimes you have a choice of finesses to make your contract. If you play a card that a defender would normally cover with an honor, and that defender plays low, you may rightly judge that the defender docs not have that honor. So you might fall back on the other finesse. Here is an interesting deal in which declarer Larry Cohen, playing in the prestigious Cavendish Pairs in New York last May, used just such a strategy. Eut he then decided not to take any finesses. Larry's opponent was Canada's Joe Silver, winner of the event in 1985. Silver led the queen of spades, won by declarer's king. Declarer played a heart to dummy's king and a heart back to his ace, and then led his club queen. Silver followed with the seven without a tremor. Cohen trusted his opponent's demeanor and rose with dummy's ace. He now played out his remaining high hearts; discarding two diamonds from his hand. Joe Silver had to make three discards, and he threw away two small diamonds and then the eight of clubs. Of course declarer could now try a diamond finesse for his contract, but he felt that West was holding the diamond king. So he led the spade seven from dummy. If East put up the eight, he would cover with the 10. If East played low, the seven would lose to West's nine. Either way, West could cash out only four spade tricks before having to lead away from the K-J of diamonds to give Larry his contract.
