Opening lead - king of dimTIonds.
SOlTIehow he lTIUst arrange to take
two more trump finesses and also get
rid of his club loser on dUlTIlTIY'S ten
South therefore leads a low heart
and, after West follows low, finesses
the ten! This is, of course, an unusual
play, sinee South has three heart
tricks without a finesse. Yet the
finesse is justified not only because
West is likely to have the jack on the
bidding, but also because South needs
three entries to dUlTImy - not just
two - to aceOlTIplish his mission.
As expected, the ten of hearts
wins, putting declarer well on the
way to his goal. He takes a second
trulTIp finesse, leads the nine of hearts
to the queen and takes a third trump
finesse. The ace of trumps then picks
up East's king, after which the king-
of-hearts lead to dummy's ace allows
South to discard his club loser on the
ten of diamonds.
It is true that South would have
failed to make the contract if East had
held the jack of hearts. In fact, he
would have gone down two instead
of one by finessing the ten. But this
would not in any way change the
inherent correctness of the finesse,
which under the circumstances
offered the only real chance offinish-
ing with 10 tricks.
Unusual circumstances some-
times call for unusual plays. For
example, consider this deal where
West leads the K-A and another dia-
mond. East ruffs and returns a club,
covered by the queen, king and ace.
Declarer now leads a spade to the
queen, and, when West shows out,
South has a difficult problem to solve.
Tomorrow: Trump managelTIent.
