this Saturday in the Kravis Cen-
ter’s Dreyfoos Concert Hall in
West Palm, presented by the
2017/2018 Regional Arts Con-

of Zubin Mehta, the orchestra
was founded in 1936 as the Pal-
estine Orchestra, according to
Wikipedia, during a time when
many Jewish musicians were
being fired from European or-
chestras. Its inaugural concert
took place in Tel Aviv on Dec.
26, 1936, led by the acclaimed
Italian conductor Arturo To-
scanini. The IPO keeps a full
international tour schedule,
and has performed under such
world-renowned conductors as
Leonard Bernstein. Saturday’s
program will include Amit
Poznansky’s gorgeous, moving

TEXTBOOK DEFENSE FOR ALL PLAYERS NORTH
Q 10 4
Eli Broad, the only person to build two Fortune 500 companies in different industries WEST 10 7 6 2 EAST
(KB Home and SunAmerica), said, “How absurd that our students tuck their cellphones, J962 A J 10 8 2 A75
BlackBerrys, iPads and iPods into their backpacks when they enter a classroom and pull 94 A Q83
out a tattered textbook.” Do you agree? 3 KQ75
J 10 7 6 4 3 SOUTH 982
The result in this week’s deal rested primarily on South’s play at trick one. This K83
depended on his reading of West’s diamond-three opening lead. Was that a singleton AKJ5
or low from length with an honor in the suit? 964
Suppose declarer judges it to be from length and plays low from the board. How should
the defenders continue from there? Dealer: South; Vulnerable: North-South
North might have raised one no-trump to three no-trump in the hope that his club ace The Bidding:
would help shore up that suit. Here, that would have worked well. But using Stayman
could hardly be called an error. SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST OPENING
1 NT Pass 2 Clubs Pass
After East takes the first trick, he should return the diamond seven (or, even better, 2 Hearts Pass 4 Hearts All Pass LEAD:
his other honor!), a suit-preference signal telling partner that he has an entry card in 3 Diamonds
spades. West will ruff, shift to a spade and receive a second ruff to defeat the contract.
With this layout, if South wins the first trick with dummy’s diamond ace, he then has to
guess the trump suit as well. The normal play would be: heart to the ace, club to the
ace, heart to the jack. Here, as you can see, that works swimmingly.
What about Broad’s comment? In some ways, I agree, but children should not be
allowed to use calculators to do math.
