the heat and the daily grind

weekend, and the price is right.
It’s free. The wonderful, wit-
ty adaptation of the Broadway
musical “My Fair Lady,” itself
a take-off on George Bernard
Shaw’s most famous play “Pig-

who bets his friend, Col. Picker-

seller Eliza Doolittle (Audrey
Hepburn) into a convincing
lady and fool all their sophis-

won eight Academy Awards,
including Best Picture, Best Ac-
tor and Best Director. The sec-

2017 musical film, “The Great-

and how he came to create the

SOUTH NEEDED LUCK AND VISUALIZATION WEST NORTH EAST

In last week’s deal, South had to visualize an end-position in which he could make an J4 K653 Q 10 9 8
apparently unavoidable loser evaporate when he forced an opponent to concede a ruff-and-
sluff. That deal did not require any luck. This week, though, not only must declarer visualize SOUTH
a winning distribution of the opposing hands, but he must also get lucky because that AQ4
distribution is a priori unlikely. However, as Seal, an English singer-songwriter, said, “The K965
harder you work ... and visualize something, the luckier you get.” QJ3
South is in four hearts. West leads the diamond 10. East takes two tricks in the suit, then
shifts to the spade jack. How should declarer continue? Dealer: South; Vulnerable: Neither
Strangely, three no-trump and four hearts are comparable contracts in that both can be The Bidding:
made unless West leads a club at trick one.
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST OPENING
Even after the diamond start, declarer seems to have four unavoidable losers: one heart 1 NT Pass 2 Clubs Pass
(assuming the suit is splitting 3-2; if it is 4-1, the contract has no chance), two diamonds 2 Hearts Pass 4 Hearts All Pass LEAD:
and one club. South cannot do anything about the red suits; how can he eliminate that club 10 Diamonds
Declarer needs the defender with three trumps to have at most two clubs. There might be
a little guesswork involved, but not here. South takes the third trick, draws two rounds of
trumps, then cashes the diamond queen (discarding a club from the board) and the black-
suit winners. Finally, he casts adrift with a trump.
West wins and must return a spade or a diamond. Declarer ruffs in one hand and sluffs the
remaining club from the other..
