The defense cannot be denied a club trick subsequently. West however made the somewhat natural opening of the Jack of diamonds from his com plete sequence and South was Given a fighting s Ace of diamonds won the first trick and the Dum my was entered with the Queen of Spades in order to Cash the King and Queen of diamonds so that South might dispose of his two hearts. This leaves him in position to restrict his loss on the Deal to one club trick by returning to his hand to Lea the ten of clubs thru West. West had been doing som thinking and when his opponent began to discard hearts it became obvious that East held the Ace of that suit and what was More to the Point that a vital trick had now gotten away from the defense. West cast about for a Way to get the trick Back and presently he hit upon an ingenious plan. On the King of diamonds he followed suit with the nine and then on the Queen he continued his false card by dropping the ten. Since his sequence of play Shad deliberately established Dummy s eight of diamonds Ashe master card in the suit he hoped to create the impression in Declarer s mind that he had started with Only three Dia monds.

If he passed the ten of clubs and it lost to a Singleton Honor in the East hand then a Diamond re turn might enable West to score the setting trick on an Over Ruff with the remaining Trump accordingly put up the Ace of clubs in the expectation of finding the Normal two one division in that suit. When East showed out the slam went up in the air and West s Cleve false cards paid off a handsome dividend., Horoscope Estrellita b to n d i e of dear now i m worried that f Shell Tell everybody in town of course it s not my fault i can keep a Sec feet now please Agnes Don t breathe a word of it to anyone it s just that the people i Tell them to Are such Blabbermouth 8-9 for Friday aug. 11 Don t make drastic change Snow especially in the .
