Not Impossible.
yyALTER MALOWAN, secretary of
the Regency Club in New York,
is noted for his bidding optimism, and
nothing gives him greater pleasure
than to reach an "Impassible" con
tract and then fulfill it by means
of brilliantly daring play plus a few
favorable breaks.

Mr. Malowan.
The bidding:
North East South West
1 4 Pass 1 A Pass
2 NT Pass 3 ¥ Pass
4 ¥ Pass 6¥ Pass
Pass Pass
Looking over the North and South
hands, it Is obvious that the slam
should not be bid since North and
South have two losing spade tricks
about which apparently nothing can
be done. Also, while Mr. Malowan’*
jump to six hearts was a slight over
bid, we do feel that his partner is
somewhat to blame. If we had held
the North hand, we would definitely
not have bid two no trump on the sec
ond round, but instead would have
contented ourselves with a bid of two
hearts. As it was. Mr. Malowan
figured from the two no-trump bid
that his partner would surely hold
either the ace or king of spades.
West opened the 10 of diamonds.
Mr. Malowan, after winning with the
queen, looked over dummy. Instead
of giving up, he decided to see what
he could do. Obviously there was no
place to put the two spades in dummy,
and he started to see what could be
done with the six in his own hand.
One could go on the ace of diamonds,
two more on high clubs, and a fourth
on the 10 if the club finesse should
be successful. This would still leave
him two spades in his own hand,
but maybe an elimination .play would
aIIah. 4 ~ ...» J j:_i a
cordingly, Instead of giving up and
accepting down one, Mr. Malowan
went about malting his contract in
the following manner:
First, three rounds of hearts ex
hausted the opponents’ trumps. Then
Mr. Malowan cashed the king of dia
monds in his own hand, led a club,
finessed the 10 and discarded three
spades on the ace, king, queen of
clubs and a fourth on the ace of dia
monds. He then led one of the low
spades from dummy. The unfortunate
East player won with his singleton
ace and was now forced to lead a
diamond, whereupon Mr. Malowan dis
carded the one remaining spade in
his own hand and trumped in dummy,
thereby making his contract.
