� � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � �������������������������� ������������������������ � ��������������������������� ���� Marmaduke ® By Brad Anderson HOROSCOPE /JERALDINE SAUNDERS ARIES (March 21-April 19): You’ve got big dreams and the energy at hand to work to achieve them. But others may resent it if you jump in too quickly and leave them behind. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Wisdom could give way to impulse under these stars. Today is a good time to make new buddies or strike up a conversation with a stranger. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Judgment and analysis are lacking, so there is a tendency to just chatter away without making a point. Break off from those you want to leave behind or meet with people where commitment is not an issue. CANCER (June 21-July 22): You have your finger right on the pulse of the future and can visualize how to achieve long-term security and tranquility. Put your thoughts down on paper because they may be important. Expect the unexpected from friends. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Taking a walk on the wild side and fearlessly experimenting with the unusual can surprise your devoted mate. You may wish to break free of restraints but he or she may be unwilling to compromise. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Promises made today might not be kept because a lot of hot air is in the air . People mean well but are not interested in commitment. Shifting friendships can move you into new and better circles, so follow the lead of your most trusted companions. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): It is a perfect day to break off a relationship or start one that is not meant to last. If you are searching for true romance, wait until tomorrow to hook up with that charmer you have your eye on. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Misinformation and a lack of commitment can plague this day, so do your own thing without input from others. By tomorrow, romance will have a chance to blossom — so if you are looking for love you may find it waiting patiently for your attention. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Too much chatter leaves little room for thought. Don’t rely on promises made today or expect that a new acquaintance will still be your best friend tomorrow. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Improve yourself by paying attention to the opinions of others. Even in the midst of inane babble you can hear some kernels of truth. AQ UARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You may thirst to be the center of attention and yearn to get out and about. Don’t slam the door shut behind you if you go off exploring alone, since your significant other may not let you back in. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Be a bit skeptical of those who promise you the world, as it might not be theirs to give. You are in a romantic and sensitive mood, but love will flow more serenely tomorrow. IF NOVEMBER 27 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: The direction of your life is in the throes of change and, like Dorothy, you could land in Oz. She had Toto, but you have trusted friends to keep you company and guard you from harm. Hang onto solid values and grab onto the brass ring of an opportunity that has recently come your way. More opportunities and help will come your way before Christmas that could entail more shifts in February when you will be compelled to complete important changes. Change can be good if you wish to improve your life so it is time to leave the past behind. ACES ON BRIDGE /BOBBY WOLFF Four of the world’s top teams were battling it out for the Reisinger Trophy, the main event of the New Orleans Nationals. Malcolm Brachman’s squad overtook all of the other squads in the final furlong, but in retrospect this deal from the middle of the final set was the critical one. Eddie Wold struck a significant blow for his team on this deal, defending against an optimistic contract of six spades after a complex auction. The normal opening lead was the club jack, after which the slam would no doubt have succeeded. But Wold chose a deceptive club 10, suggesting that his partner held the jack. Declarer’s belief that this lead was normal led to his ultimate downfall. He won with dummy’s king, preserving the possibility of subsequently finessing the nine. He now led to his spade king, then finessed dummy’s jack, losing to East’s queen. Back came a diamond. After winning with dummy’s queen, declarer finessed the heart queen successfully. He crossed to the spade ace and at the moment of truth led a club to his nine. When Wold unexpectedly produced the jack and led a diamond, the slam failed by two tricks. (Since the clubs were blocked and dummy had no further entry, a diamond had to be lost at the finish.) If South had made his slam, as he could have done in various ways, his team would have won the Reisinger title, and the Brachman team would have been third.
