Tcday we have an- rt.hcr example from a team flf four match where one de- clarer made his five club contract whereas his coun- terpart went down to defeat. North's two diamond over- call is a cue bid and is forc- ing to game. When he rebid two spades after South re- sponded with two hearts, the latter vas obliged to bid again. North relieved his partner of further pressure by raising three clubs direct- ly to five.

Althn the latter could have safely forced out one of dummy's trumps by return- ing a diamond, he in- stead 1.0 exit with s nsart to North's king. South was obliged to use up his remaining trump by lead- ing a club back to the ten so he could put the ten nC spades thru for a finesse in that suit. West covered with the king and North played the ace. The queen and jack were cashed in an attempt to split out the suit. When West discarded a diamond on the third spade. East's nine be- came established as the set- ting trick. At the other table, declarer adopted a more careful ap- proach. Of the two outstand- ing honors in the black suits, he was more inclined to place the king of spades with West rather than the queen of the basis of the lafter's opening bid. Assum- ing that Ihe spade finesse would succeed, he resolved to take measures to protect himself against a four-two division in spades. After playing Ihc ace nf clubs at trick two, he contin- i'od with the deuce fraining from cashing the king. East put up the queen of clubs and returned a dia- mond. South played the ten, West covered with the jack and dummy ruffed with the jack of clubs. The eight of trumps was now overtaken by the ten so that declarer could lead the ten of spades. West covered with the king, as at the other table. And after the A-Q-J were cashed. South retained a trump to ruff out East's nine. The North hand was now established and the only tricks lost on the deal were one diamond and one, club. Observe that had the clubs divided two-two. South would have surrendered a trick that he did not have to lose, however his contract would still be safe because Ihe ten of clubs provides third round access to takn the spade fi- nesse and declarer retains a trump to ruff out the fourth spade to establish dummy's long card in the suit. bats.

For some reason they look to sipping the blood of their vic- I tims and gave up all other foods. As a general rule, na- lure allows unused parts of a body to waste away.
