Cycle Dispute The council also heard a presentation from several motorcyclists who desire to continue using the area near Turner park for bike riding. The council, after hearing complaints from residents in the not shuffle, deal or even cut the cards. This didn't keep Merlin from making some really astounding plays. There was nothing astounding about his king of diamonds lead against three notrump. Anyone likes to lead from king-queen-jack-10. Lancelot ducked. Merlin continued the suit and Lancelot had to win. He promptly played the ace of clubs and continued with the jack. Now Merlin went into a trance. When he came out of the trance he had figured out what to do. He went up with his king and led a heart. This line of play was the only way to defeat the contract. It showed that Merlin had figured out exactly what Lancelot was trying to do or had seen the peerless knight’s hand in his trance. Had Merlin ducked the second club, a third club lead would have set up two tricks In dummy. Had he cashed his diamonds, Lancelot would have discarded his queen of clubs and unblocked the suit for dummy.
