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.
