JUST BRIDGE...


 LET'S MAKE A DEAL

 

by Beverly Kraft -Eric Kokish

 

  Regular readers of The Bridge Beat may remember a theme we broached a few weeks ago - the idea of trading one loser for another in order to advance the play to a favourable conclusion.

Opening Lead:
J

 West, whose idea of obstructive tactics did not seem to include an appreciation of the institution of vulnerability led the
J against South's 4. East won the A and switched to 10. Take it from here, declarer wanna-be's.

 At the table declarer won the
A, drew trumps with the ace and king, and led a diamond towards her hand. East won the A and returned a heart, but declarer had spotted a small chance much earlier and was now headed for the home stretch.

 She won the
K, cashed the K, and ruffed a heart. Then she played dummy's third diamond. East had to cover and declarer discarded a club, refusing to ruff. East, out of black cards (West's weak jump overcall in clubs had revealed the lie of that suit), had to play one of the red suits. Declarer, who had none of those in either hand, discarded her last club and ruffed in dummy. The forced ruff-and-discard, brought about by trading a club loser for a diamond loser, had allowed declarer to make a contract that seemed doomed to defeat at the third trick.

 Declarer was Australian, Kylie Robb who was 15 years old at the time. Perhaps it should come as no surprise that a declarer from Down Under would find a variation on an upside down line of play. Did you find Kylie's line?
