'V. The New*, Frederick, Md., Monday, December 3, 1951 ON BRIDGE JACOBY Sound Reasoning Won This Trick By OSWALD JACOBY Written For NEA Service With the national bridge tournament now in full swing in Detroit, I am reminded of a band played by Clarence Strouse, of Los Angeles, at last year's national championships. West opened the nine of hearts and Strouse had a short debate with himself about wnether or not to risk the finesse. If West had a legitimate opening bid. he surely held the king of hearts and the queen of spades together with the missing high diamonds. But if that were the case, what could East hold for his bid of one heart? So Strouse finally decided thai East held the king of hearts and that West's opening Wd had been some kind of psychic. Hence he put up dummy's ace of hearts to win the first trick. The big problem was how to handle the long spades, and what WORTH 98 wes* « A 1 0 7 6 2 V 9 5 4 BAST V K 1 0 8 7 S 41052 8O65M · K 7 4 *Q.T 10832 West Nwrtfe 1« 6S Double I V 2 4 Pass 2 V Pa*s 3* Pass 3*' Pass 3N.T, Pass 4V Pass 5* Pass ** P*» »·«« Pass 5p«afe9g to discard on dummy's long suit II four spade tricks could be won. South could obtain three discards, and he could get rid of all of his diamonds If only three spade tricks could be won, South could obtain only two discards, and then hp uotild have to get rid of the two rp- maming hearts and play the diamonds in the hopr that Easi held the ace The percentage play to grt four spade tricks is to fin^sFe the jack at once. Instead. Strouse drew one round of trumps with the queen of clubs at thp second trick and then took the acp of spades and ruffed with the jack of rlnbs Next he led a club to d u m m y s ace. drawing East's last trump Whrn he then led the king of spades from dummy, Strousn had Bewtsrc* Coughs From Common Colds That HANG ON Creomnlsion relieves promptly because it joes right to the scat of the trouble to help loosen and expel germ laden phlegm and aid nature to soothe and heal raw, tender, inflamed bronchial locmferaBCS. Guaranteed to please you or money refunded. Creomulsion haa stood the test of millions of users. CREOMULSION half decided to discard a heart. East had to follow suit with the queen of spades, however, and declarer could therefor* afford to change his plans. He could now cash the king jack, and eight of spades, discarding three diamonds from his own hand. Then he could ?ivc up one heart 'trick, and claim the rest The chief point of the successful line of play was that West's opening bid was so obviously psychic that it didn't necessarily locate the ace of diamonds in the West hand South could afford to refuse the heart and spade finesses, testinE the spade suit without risking the loss of a trick. If the spade failed to produce, South could fall back on a diamond lead from dummy toward his king. JACOBY ON CANASTA DISCARD PILE RULE IS CONFUSING By OSWALD JACOBY/ Written For NEA S*rvlc« Questions, oou new and old, continue to pour in. In some cases I recognize the question before I have finished the first sentence of the letter. The problem is an old friend, one that I've answered a few hundred times already, and 1 know that 1 can relax and answer it in my sleep For example, people arr MiH asking the familiar question about (skin* the first discard pil* for mn Initial moid with a natural card and a wild card. Mr. and Mrs John OOP put down two nces and two jokers to make the initial mcld-^- and then trie* to take the discarded six with one natural six and one deuce. This is not legal The rule is that you are allowed to take the djscard pile w i t h ' o n e natural card and a wild card only if your side has made the initial meld at a previous turn. Sometimes this rule is misunderstood in a new and different way. For example, John Doe puts down two aces and two deuces and wants to take the discarded queen with two queens and one deuce. This is perfectly legal. There is nothing wrong with using one or more wild card? ir your initial meld. Thp important point is to have at least two natural cards that match the top card of the discard pile. Another familiar question has to do with black threes. " Are you allowed to discard." people want to know, "after melding out with three or four black threes?" The answer is a decided yes. Whenever you meld out--regardless of the black threes--you may either discard or not, «s you please, tou .till have that choice when you meld out with black threes. A less familiar question has to do with melding twelve cards for the initial meld. The count wa« 120 points, and the discard pile was topped by a king.. The player put down his entire hand--three kings, four queens, and four jacks, counting 320 points with the top card of the discard pile. Was it legal to meld the «ntire hand, and to rely on the cards of the discard pile for a discard and some cards to keep in the hand? YPS. That is perfectly legal. ThPre must be at least two cards under that king in the discard pile. The player must be able to discard one card and to keep at least one card in her hand to play on with. Mr. Jacoby is unable to answer individual questions on Canasta from readers, However, h^e will include the most frequently asked questions m his column. Silver City, one of the 'most picturesque of the ghost towns in Idaho, once was the center of the nation's second-ranking silver- producing area.
