SHORTAGE DEDUCTION FROM OPPONENT’S CALL WEST NORTH EAST
KQ73 J982 A 10 5
By Phillip Alder - Bridge Columnist 6 K J 10 3 Q54
10 7 5 3 94 QJ2
The winner of the 2016 Yeh Online World Bridge Cup was Lavazza, who played in Turin, A843 KQ5 9762
Italy. The team partnerships were Emanuela Calandra-Norberto Bocchi, Bénédicte Cronier-
Agustin Madala and Sylvie Willard-Giorgio Duboin. Winning points sometimes seems SOUTH
random, but if you keep pressuring the opponents, things usually work out — as in this deal 64
played between Lavazza and the Chinese Contract Bridge Association. A9872
Madala (South) opened one heart in fourth seat with a hand that fails the Rule of 15: In J 10
fourth chair, open if your point-count plus spade length equals at least 15; otherwise, pass
out the deal. Over West’s takeout double, Cronier (North) responded two no-trump (the Dealer: West; Vulnerable: North-South
Truscott convention) to show a maximum pass with at least four-card heart support. South
took a shot at the vulnerable game. The Bidding:
West made an inadvisable lead: her trump. Now declarer drew trumps, knocked out the SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST OPENING
club ace and had 10 tricks: five hearts, two diamonds, two clubs and a diamond ruff in the Pass Pass Pass
dummy. 1 Hearts Dbl. 2 NT Pass LEAD:
4 Hearts Pass Pass Pass 6 Hearts
Probably, if West had led the spade king, Madala would have made the contract, playing
West for a singleton heart because of her takeout double.
At the other table, over West’s double, South bid two clubs, which he intended as the
Reverse Drury convention, showing a maximum pass with heart support — he did not see
West’s double! Over the double, two clubs was natural. South rebid two diamonds, and
North invited game with three hearts, which South, expecting at most three hearts opposite,
passed. Declarer also took 10 tricks, but Lavazza gained 10 international match points.
