with a view to ascertulniiiK Just what
tho hands should luno been worth with

Tho result was thu conclusion that the
N nnd S end of It had thlnRS pr.ttv
much their own way und that If lhe
hid their cards up to what they were
worth and refused to bid them neyonu .
that point, utilizing their strength to
defend themselves atralnst their oppo

clRtot deals should haie h.-en 1.7.11 plus.
On tho other side of the table, tlieie-,
fore, the best any 15 and W pair had a ,
rleht to mak- would be 1.731 minus, and
any smaller los would Indlcato that the
N and S pairs op.osid to them had b.en
too Rcnerous or had thrown away opportunities.
The actual result was that tne niRHrst
score mado by any pair slttlns N and S 1

made by nny i: and W pair was SO"
