( HAPPENED? IT...IT'S...f LOOKS LI ( kE ESS BOY Defense scores a bull's-eye By James Jacoby The Danish newspaper Politiken, 100 years old in 1984, continued its anniversary celebration into 1985 by having a "Bridge Hand of the Month" contest. In the winning hand shown today, Danish player Nis Gravlund is featured in the West position for a series of fine defensive plays. His play, though well reasoned, would be missed by many expert players. West made the opening lead of the ace of hearts for a good reason: to take a look at dummy. There was certainly a danger that the diamond suit would provide discards for declarer, so best to take defensive side-suit tricks quickly. When his partner played a discouraging card and declarer unblocked with the heart king, West had no difficulty switching to spades, playing the ace and then the queen. When East allowed the queen of spades to hold the trick, it seemed that he held an entry that would let him quickly cash the spade king. (Without such an entry. East would no doubt have overtaken the queen and played a third spade, since West should not be playing the queen if he held a small spade.) Where could that entry be, except in clubs? So now West led a club to East's ace, which blotted out North's singleton queen. Next came the king of spades, followed by West's ruff of the fourth spade. Since East's guarded club jack had to score a trick eventually, precise defense had exacted the maximum penalty — down three for 300 to the stalwart Danish defenders. = 1986 NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSN.
