IF YOU DOUBLE, THE PRESSURE IS ON Q 10 8 6 2

By Phillip Alder - Bridge Columnist Q96

The second-most prolific author of bridge books is Ron Klinger from Australia. He is Q75
known for packing a lot of material into a small space. His latest book is “Defending
Doubled Contracts” (Weidenfeld & Nicolson). WEST Q5
K3 EAST
The complexity of the deals is variable, as are the levels of the contracts (the one-level A842
to the seven-level) and the sizes of the available penalties (from down one to down six). 4 AJ974
All the deals occurred at the table; Klinger composed none himself. K J 10 7 6 3
K3
In this deal, how did East-West defend against five diamonds doubled after West led
the spade king? K8

Many Souths would have opened three diamonds with the seven-card suit, hoping that A984
a good heart fit did not exist. This South tried to catch up on the next round. If West
had not doubled, maybe East would have bid six no-trump, which would have failed on SOUTH
a non-diamond lead; or six clubs, which could have been made; or, best of all, five no-
trump pick a slam. 5

Sitting East-West were two Australian internationals, Ted Chadwick and David J 10 7 5
Beauchamp. Under West’s spade king, East dropped the nine, a suit-preference signal
for hearts. (He wondered if West had led a singleton and thought it highly likely that A J 10 9 6 3 2
West had the heart ace.)

West shifted to the heart deuce. East won with his king, returned the suit and received a
ruff. Then he underled his club ace to give partner the lead for a fourth round of hearts, Dealer: South; Vulnerable: Neither
