JACOBY ON BRIDGE Expert Lesson On Object Of Bidding By OSWALD "jACOBY Written For NEA Service The nano shown today will seem like sheer insanity to some of my readers. Curiously enough, those an; the very readers who are in need of the lesson taught by the hand. The average bridge player thinks that the object of bidding is to get to a contract that you can make. The expert knows better. The true object of bidding is to win as many points as possible with good cards and to lose as few points as possible with bad cards. The question of who plays the hand is a side issue- NORTH * 53 · 102 WEST B$ EAST 4 6 4 9 8 · V K 1 0 2 V A Q 7 6 + A 9 5 4 K J 8 7 4 3 + A K Q J 4 2 4.9 SOOTH 4107532 V J 9 8 4 *Q6 + 105 Neither s«3e vul.

The was playing as hard as he knew how, since the hand took place in a national. championship tournament Still, here-was a player who bid two no-trump and; didn't win a single trick. What sort of serious bid was that? , Actually, Frey'expected to hear further from the opponents. If he got doubled at two no-trump, he expected to make some other "foolish" bids, winding up at three spades. No serious damage could have been done to North at a contract of three spades. As it turned out, the opponents were the foolish ones, for letting Frey play the hand--even though they managed to win all thirteen tricks against him. The penalty for being down eight tricks undoubted was only 400 points. And Frey didn't mind losing 400 points With the cards held by his partnership. nlf West had gone on with his own bidding, he could have bid *nd mad* « sl«m at clubi.

Those who stopped at five club.s nevertheless won twelve tricks for a score of 420 points. It will be remembered that Frey lost only 400 points, and the difference of 20 points is vital in tournament play. 15 SHOPPING DAYS TO CHRJSMAS Today's Horoscope Today's degree favors the birth of a writer.
