Radio Bridge Analysis
Being a Report of Bidding and Play Over the Air from KWWG Follower* of thi* season's Radio Hridge Games, the latest of which was broadcast Tuesday, from Station KWWG here, arc carrying away lrom each presentation a definite Knowl edge of how to recognize and handle one or more Bridge situations which are muffed hv the average player. In this week’s game the demonstra tion was given hv the play of Mrs. A. R. Coffin, of Indianapolis, a cham pionship player of the American ^ hist League. Her partner was E. J. Tobin, of Chicago, also a league champion. The hands were: Wilbur C. White head. dealer, south: Spades, Q, 10, 3; * hearts, 0. 5, 2: diamond*. K. Q. 9; flubs, K. Q. 10. fi, Mr. Tobin, west: spade*. J. 8* heart*. J. 9: diamonds. A, J. f>. A. 2: clubs. 5. 4. 3, 2; hearts. A, K. Q, 10, 7, 4; diamonds, lrt, dubs. A, J. Mr. Whitehead dealer opened the bidding (first hand of rubber i with one club. Even though his club suit consisted of but four cards his hand "a* too strong to pass. Mr. Tobin, west, passed. Although his d imnml suit was of five card*, it contained only on quick trick, which, wthout any high-card support in side suits, is not sufficient for even a fol lowing or defensive hid. Mr. Work. North, with a Yarborough, of course ha dto pass. Mrs. Coffin, east, with a magnifi cent hand, hid one heart. There was nothing to he a complished by a ‘higher hid. Mrs. Coffin did not fear adverse bidding. In feet, she would hove been glad to have the bidding forced up to a point where she could either make a profitable hu«ine«s double of the adverse bid. or else entice a double of her own bid by gradually raising it. However, Mr. Whitehead passed, as he had shown the full treneth of his hand by his initial hid. Mr. Tobin also whs forced to pa ■*, although, holding but two cards of his part ner's suit, he would have denied her suit had he been able to do so. The weakness of his diamond suit made a take-out hid impossible. Mr, Work also passed. Therefore Mr*. Coffin became the declarer, with her con tract one heart. Mr. Whitehead led out his king of clubs, the correct lead from a king queen --ait against a suit declaration: and Mr. Tobin spread his hand for Dummy. From it Mrs. Coffin played the 2 of eluhs; Mr. Work played the 7; and declarer won the trick with th« ace. Pausing a moment *o plan the play of her herd. Mrs. Coffin could see an easy little slam, obtainable by ruff ing her two «mnll spade* in dummy, after taking her ree and king, unless one of the adversaries held only ore spade. Those four tricks, her six solid trump tricks, dummy’s ace of diamonds and her own ace of clubs would leave her only one loser, the jack of club*. Rut Mrs. Coffin w « no? portent with a small slam. She felt that a grand slam was possible, because the bidding hnd shown that the king nueen of liamonds must lie in Mr. Whitehead’s, south' , hand. The-e two cards would form the only possihle side quick trick which he must have held in order to bid club* Initially on a king-queen elub suit. Mrs. *’offtn therefore saw the opnor •tunity for a "squeeze" pi y that would give her a rrand slam. t'roeeeding on tb s hn*is. Mr* Cof #in led her are o:id kind of snrdes to trick* two and three Mr. Whitehead played the ” and lb- dummy the and inck: Mr. Work the 2 „pd 5. Mrs Coffin continued with the 4 of spade*; Mr. Whitehead dropped the queen, dtimn"' trumped with th* 9 or hearts; Mr. Work played the of spade*. The fall of the f) men of Ppndo ha 1 made Thee’arer** p of Spade* good; therefore there was no need to use Dummy's second trump for rufltng. Accordingly Declarer led Dummy's Jack of Hearts; Mr. Work played the J; Mrs. Coffin overtook the Jack with the Queen; and Mr. Whitehead piayed the 2. Mrs. Coffin then led five straight Heart tricks, with the purpose of forcing embar rassing discards from Mr. W hite 1 head. Thus at the beginning of the elev enth trick, Declarer, Last, was left with the good 9 of Spades; the 10 j of Diamonds; and the Jack of Clubs. Mr. Whitehead. South, had been forced to discard down to his King, Queen of Diamonds and the good Queen of Clubs. Dummy retained the j Ace, Jack of Diamonds and the 5 of i lubs. Mr. Work held the 7 of Spades and the 8, 7 of Diamonds. Declarer then led her good 9 of Spades which put Mr. Whitehead in to difficulty. He was fairly certain that the Declarer had the Jack of Clubs, since his partner had played the lowest of at least three Clubs on the first trick, and had since dis carded the H spot. Therefore, if he discarded his Queen of Clubs, he doubtless would present the Closed Hand with a trick. On the other hand, if he discarded a Diamond. Dummy’s Act* and Jack of Diamonds would take the last two tricks. His only chance was the faint hope that his partner, Mr. Work, might hold the Jack of ( lubs. Therefore Mr. White head discarded the Queen of Clubs. Dummy discarded the 5 of (Tuba; and Mr. Work played the 7 of Spades Mrs. Coffin then led the Jack of (Tubs, dashing Mr. Whitehead's hopes of breaking her Grand Slam. He was forced to discard his Queen : of Diamonds; Dummy discarded the .luck of Diamonds, and Mr. Work the i • Declarer then led her ]0 of Dia monds, winning this last trick with Dummy's Ace, and achieving a Grand Siam with its bonus of 100 points. She also scored 90 for honors—four in her hand and fifth in partner’s— and 6.T for tricks. After the play of the hand at Auc tion Hridgc was concluded. Mr. Work devoted the rest of the broadcasting period to a discussion of its bidding at Contract. He considered it a moderately close question as to whether South, the Dealer, should ; bid one Club or pass. Quoting Mr. Works own words: ! "Unquestionably more caution should be exercised in bidding four-card suits in Contract than in Auction; but the South hand has what 1 might call a 'likely look.’ King-Queen-Ton. even at the head of four, is a worth while combination; and with a King Queen-Nine in one side suit, and Queen-Ten with one small in an other, I believe the hand is too strong to pass even at Contract. I would favor bidding one Club; but I t would not criticise a pass. "West and North would pass, re gardless of whether South bids or passes; and Last under either condi tion would bid four Hearts. Last would count upon six tricks in the ' Heart suit, the Ace and King of Spades, and the Ace of Clubs—nine i tricks; she also has a fair chance of making another Spade. It takes much less in the West hand to insure the i *;tra trick than would justify West in jumping to four if Last bid only three Hearts. For example, a Jack and Ten of Spades in the West hand would insure three Spade tricks and game; therefore, the soundness of th<* four-Heart bid cannot be ques tioned. "Some players with West's hand would he tempted to overcall the four Hearts with five Diamonds, with the idea that it is proper to show an Ace for slam purposes whenever the partner bids for game. In this case it would be most advantageous for Last and West to go slamming, but with no other high cards to support the Ace. West would not be justified :n doing so. It is absurd to contend that it is possible to foresee and to bid for a slam every time a hand turns up with which one can be made.* Kiwanis Chiefs Meet In Annual Council Conclave ■ CHICAGO. Til.. Nov. 5.—Of)—L. A McDonald of Denton. goxernnr olect of the Texas-OkUhomr. Ki wanis district, and 200 other offi I rials. including all govcrnors-elect from the United States and Canada, convened here today for the annual council meeting of the organization. Dec. r»-R. Mr. McDonald will take office on Jan. 1. O. Sam Cummings, of Kansas City, president of the Kiwanis In | ternational. was in charge of the sessions, which bring together the largest gathering of officers nt any time excepting an international con vention. “The eocneil,” remarked Mr. Cummings, in his opering ad dress, is the legislative body em powered to confer : nd advi«e with the hoard of trustee* on all offi cial matters of the 1.750 clubs with 102.000 embers of the North Ameri can continent.” Texas has 51 Kiwanis clubs with a member-hip of 2.950, McDonald, who was elected this fall at Dallas, told the council. "The average Kiwrnian who fails to attend his cluh's weekly r.ieet l ir:gs contributes little to his com munity and adds rnthing to th* good fellowship.” McDonald declar ed. "Kiwanis has accomplished thousand* of social and <ivir activi ties in Texas in 1928. and the work will he continued in 1929. An increase in selective member ship for nil cluhs will probably be urged bv the council. Free Health Show Draw? Big Crowd At Point Isabel POINT ISABEL.
