Mondav, July 2, 1956 jr Sattrnmn £'ww Contract Bridge SouUi dealer. East-West vulnerable. The bidding: South West North East I V Dble. Redble. Pass Pass 2 <|» 2 f Pass < v Opening lead—six of hearts. The redouble by North announces a good hand containing .10 or more points, which may be based on defensive or offensive i-alucs. The follow-up bid of two hearts by North, while it does put a ceiling: on the quality of the redouble, guarantees good trump support. It is not & forcing bid, but it asks partner to continue the bidding with a proper hand. South's jump to four hearts was, under the circumstances, clear. South conducted an admirable campaign to make four hearts. It is not so easy to bring off ten tricks even if all four hands are examined. All the more credit, therefore, to the d e c 1 a r e r's By Josephine Culbertson achievement. The bidding had alerted South to the. location of all the important cards held by the defense. Between his own and dummy's hand there were 26 high card points. The remaining 14 points in the deck were marned to be all, or practically all, in West's hand to justify the vulnerable takeout double. Straight play would therefore lead to the loss of a spade, two diamonds, a club— and defeat. The problem was how to counteract the unfavorable position of West's honor cards. South won the trump lead with 'the nine, and took a second round :of trumps in dummy. The queen 'of spades lost to the king, and West exited with a spade, won by dummy's jack. After a third round of spades to declarer's ace, South played the six of clubs. West could not afford to play the ace. because, as can be seen, the queen of. clubs would become a trick on which declarer could later shed a diamond loser. When Die club queen won the trick, South played a low trump to his ace, and cashed the ten of spades, discarding a club from dummy. The king of clubs now put West en lead and in dire straits. There was no salvation. A club lead meant a ruff in dummy, South discarding a losing diamond. A diamond lead woulci make the king of diamonds a trick. Result in either case^-four hearts biu and made.
