Lei's assume queen of you're in five clubs and West leads the queen of hearts followed by the jack. You ruff and, after cashing three rounds of trumps and four diamonds, lead a spade which Wesl plays Ihe three. You are now at the crucial joint of the hand. I f ' y o u think Wesl has the queen you should ilay the jack from dummy,.hut T you think Wesl has the ace you should play the king from dummy. Situations like this occur frequently, and of ourse there's 10 magic formula to solve :hem. However, there is practically always a clue of some sort lo grasp at. The declarer who lakes the game seriously has to find this clue, and he may solve Ihe problem here by applying the same principle as the village idiot- who found a losl horso by asking himself: "Where would T go if I were a horse?" South asks himself what lib would have bid after two passes had he been East and held five or six hearls headed by the A-IC and the ace of spades on the side. He would surely have opened the bidding third hand with a heart on such a holding, rather than pass. Accordingly, S o u t h must assume that East does not have the ace of spades and he should play the king from dummy rather than the jack. It is not a matter of tossing a coin in the air, nor is it a matter of profound and convoluted deduc- lion. It's jusl plain common horse sense!
