Local discussion about the proposed

2014. The state legislature started a site-se-

Progress was halted when the state and

The state had invested time and money
into a design, but then the federal veterans
department changed its standards, which

Finding the best defense against any contract is always satisfying. East-West were K52 EAST
happy at the end of this deal. 9432

First, though, let’s look at the auction. North was a tad weak for the two-heart reverse, J9832
which promised a very good 16-20 points. In the tournament world, after this type of K 10 8 7
reverse, responder’s rebid of fourth suit or two no-trump, whichever is the cheaper,

so South rebid two no-trump to show his club stoppers, wondering if they belonged in
no-trump or diamonds. North, aware of the previous overbid, suddenly passed. 54

West led his fourth-highest club. South might have won dummy’s king with his ace to SOUTH
take a diamond finesse, but that would not have worked well here. Instead, declarer won
on the board and played a spade to his jack. West made a commendable smooth duck. QJ97
Now South cashed his top clubs (East throwing a spade) and took the heart finesse (an
error here — a club would have been more successful). East won and worked to strand 6
declarer in the dummy. East cashed the spade ace, then led the heart 10 (in case South
had started with nine-doubleton). South won on the board and cashed the heart ace, 732
under which West carefully played the nine.
A Q 10 7 6
East won the next heart and led a spade to partner’s king. West cashed the club jack,
then pushed a diamond through the dummy to defeat the contract. Dealer: North; Vulnerable: North-South
