Ing The right time to win the ace By James Jacoby It's hard to know when to violate the bridge habits of a lifetime. Back in college we would chant at each other, "Aces are meant to take kings" — a good rule to follow in promoting smaller cards to winning status. But correct defensive strategy can call for ignoring this principle on occasion. Today's auction ended up with South playing five hearts doubled. West led the spade king. Declarer won dum- • my's ace and immediately played a diamond back to his king. West took the ace and continued spades. Declarer ruffed, cashed the ace of hearts (dropping East's queen), cashed the queen of diamonds and ruffed a low diamond with dummy's nine of hearts. He now played a second heart to force out the king. The only tricks that came to the defenders were the diamond ace and the heart king, and South made his doubled contract. Needless to say, West can do better. The key to defeating the contract is simply to allow the king of diamonds to hold the trick when that suit is first led. If a second diamond is led, West will take the ace and give his partner a ruff with the heart queen. If declarer plays the ace of hearts before the second round of diamonds. West will win the diamond ace and play king and another heart, preventing a little diamond from being ruffed in dummy. A new book by James Jacoby and his father, the late Oswald Jacoby. is now available at bookstores, ft is "Jacoby on Card Games. ~ published by Pharos Books. © 1987.
