This Deal features a play that a easy enough to appreciate after the hand is Over but one that is frequently overlooked in actual practice. When the Deal occurred South won the opening Diamond Lead with the Ace and played the Ace and another Trump to the King. He next led Dummy a Queen of clubs and when East followed Low let it ride. West won with the lung and returned a Low Diamond to partners King. East then shifted to a Spade whereupon the defense scored two Spade tricks for Down one. While it is True that South was unlucky to find West with both the King of clubs and Ace of Spades the fact remains that South was responsible for his own demise. Had he refused to take the Ace of diamonds at trick one he would have overcome the unfriendly lie of the cards. The purpose of ducking West a Queen of diamonds at the outset is to prevent him from later putting his partner on Lead with a Diamond. By severing this vital line of communication Between the defenders Declarer assures the contract even though the club finesse loses and the Spade Ace is offside. Lets say West continues with a Diamond at trick two. Declarer wins draws Trumps As before and tries the club finesse. West takes his King but is helpless. A Diamond return presents South with a Ruff and discard cashing the Spade Ace establishes South a King and a club return permits Declarer to discard two Spades on Dummy a clubs. All roads thus Lead to at least ten tricks. Note that if East elects to play his King on West a Queen at trick one South can counter by taking his Ace at once. The presence of Dummy a ten insures that East will at no Point gain the Lead to threaten Declarer a King of Spades. C 1996 King features Syndicate. Inc.
