The hand shown today was bid and played by two Canadian experts in our 1949 national cham- · pionshlp, and it has stayed in my mind for two years because of the very neat bidding point involved. At rnost tables South decided to risk a contract of three n trump. North usually raised clubs, and South then took the plunge in the hope that the opponents would . open the' wrong suit or that even their opening lead would not give thenx more than four immediate tricks. Whenever three no-trump was tried, it went down. A spade opening was pretty automatic from either side of the table, and it always provided five immediate tricks to set the three no-trump ' contract. At one table, Mimi Roncarelli, of Montreal, held the South hand and decided to try for game by making the invitational bid of three clubs John Wiser, also of Montreal, responded with three hearts to show the location of his side strength. . This was a highly informative bid--not only for what it said but also for what it failed to say. Wiser promised heart strength with his bid, but he also denied spade strength. If he had held strength in two suits, he would have gone to three no-trump instead of three hearts. Miss Roncarelli saw the handwriting on the waU. Her partner saitf he had no spade strength; and she had pone inkier own hand. A 1 no-trump contract, was clearly a bad gamble. Hence she bid the finme in clubs instead. The defenders misht hrive taken two spade tricks, but. West ninde the somewhat understandable openinp of a trump. Now declarer could draw trumps, cash the top diamonds and cuter dummy with a trump to discard a spade OH the established ten of diamonds. Later on. the success of the heart finesse gave declarer twelve tricks for* a well-earned top.
