GOULASH GIVES LONG, LONG SUITS K J 10 7 6 3
Martin H. Fischer, a German-American physiologist who died in 1962, said, “A nickel’s —
worth of goulash beats a five-dollar can of vitamins.”
At the bridge table, a goulash deal beats five contracts played in no-trump. You presort
the cards into their suits, cut the deck without shuffling, and deal in groups. I do threes WEST AKQ9654
and fours, but some prefer a three and two fives. The deals often have very long suits. EAST
The one in the diagram was played in a social game last month. What do you think of the

It is rare to open with a one-bid in goulash. West’s Unusual No-trump was weird; since — J 10 7 6 4

have been preferable. East hid in the bushes over three spades. Then South, who was K Q J 10 8 5 4 2 3
preparing to double five diamonds (it probably would have failed by one trick), was
pleasantly surprised to hear partner raise hearts. East finally revealed his major-orientated J 10 8 7 2 —
If West had led a club, the contract would have failed, but she selected the diamond king.
Declarer looked at the diamond void and joked, “Ruff it!” —
South took the first trick and played four rounds of hearts. East won, cashed his second AKQ98532
heart trick, then tried a sneaky low-spade lead. However, declarer knew that East, who
couldn’t have a second diamond, had started with 7-5-1-0 distribution. South discarded A976
a diamond. When he won the trick on the board, he conceded only two trump tricks and
