On a more optimistic note, Perez says
if your symptoms improve with your

John Buchan, 1st Baron Tweedsmuir, a Scottish novelist, historian and politician who 10 3 KQ6 J974
served as Governor General of Canada, said, “Every man at the bottom of his heart
believes that he is a born detective.” SOUTH
A bridge player needs to be a detective. There are clues littered around every deal, Q9
just waiting to be interpreted correctly. Q7
In this week’s deal, first there is a bidding question. North opens one club, East
overcalls one heart, South responds one spade, and North raises to two spades. Dealer: North; Vulnerable: Both
What should South do now?
Then we don our deerstalker and decide what South should do in four spades. West
leads the heart jack. East wins with his king, cashes the heart ace, and continues with SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST OPENING
the heart five. When South ruffs up with the spade six, West discards a diamond. How Pass 1 Clubs 1 Hearts
should South continue? 1 Spades 2 Spades Pass LEAD:
?? J Hearts
If responder bids one of a major and is raised by opener to two of that major,
responder passes with nine losers, insists on game with seven losers, and makes a
game-try with eight losers. So, here, South, over two spades, continues with three
clubs. Then North should jump to four spades because he has good clubs, two aces
and four-card spade support.
South, who must hold his pointed-suit losers to one, would usually take the spade
finesse. However, if West had that king, surely he would have overruffed at trick
three. South should lead his spade queen, then put up dummy’s ace. Here, the king
drops, and declarer can claim. But if the king does not appear, South plays another
trump and hopes clubs are 3-3 or East can be squeezed if he has four clubs and the
