FUN TO THE LYRIC

1 Upshift into holiday high
gear this coming Tuesday,
Dec. 11, when the Lyric presents
“Jane Lynch: A Swingin’ Little
Christmas.” If her name sounds
familiar, that’s because it is: She’s
won Emmys and Golden Globes
portraying the acerbic cheer-
leading coach on the hit TV show
“Glee,” and done a ton of other
TV, film and music performance
work, including, in 2013, making
her Broadway debut in the plum
role of Miss Hannigan in “An-
nie.” Lynch is uber-hip and full of
rhythm and kinetic energy, and
her holiday show features equally
talented pals Kate Flannery and
Tim Davis with the Tony Guerro
Quintet. For nine years, Flannery
played Meredith (the drunk) on
NBC’s hit series “The Office,” and
has a comedy lounge act, the
Lampshades. Davis has toured
with Lynch’s “See Jane Sing” for
three years; and has produced all
six seasons of “Glee”; Lady Gaga’s
2017 Super Bowl halftime show;
and Barbra Streisand’s 2017 con-
cert tour, among others. The Tony
Guerrero Quintet has been a part

LEADING A WEAK SUIT CAN BE MISLEADING WEST NORTH EAST
10 9 8 6 Q53 72
By Phillip Alder - Bridge Columnist KQ86 54 J9732

Eighteenth-century sibling authors Augustus and Julius Hare wrote, “A weak mind sinks 7 QJ8542 K 10 9 6
under prosperity, as well as under adversity. A strong and deep mind has two highest tides.”
SOUTH
A bridge play by declarer that often results in prosperity is leading a weak suit. The AKJ4
opponents assume declarer has values there and steer clear of it. This deal occurred during A 10
the 2016 Yeh Online World Bridge Cup. Matches were played simultaneously among four AJ973
teams in three venues: Beijing, Turin and Seattle. A3

How did Lin Rongqiang of the Chinese Contract Bridge Association play in three no-trump Dealer: East; Vulnerable: Both
after receiving a spade lead?
The Bidding:
South’s strong-club sequence promised a balanced 22-24; he rightly upgraded for the five-
card suit and excellent controls (four aces and a king). SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST OPENING
Pass
West, nervous of leading a red-suit king, chose the spade 10. 1 Clubs Pass 1 Diamonds Pass LEAD:

Declarer won with his jack and played two rounds of clubs. After West threw the heart six,

discarded a diamond, and West shed the spade nine.
INAUGURAL FAIRWAY
Now South threw a curve: He led a heart to his 10! West won with her queen and shifted
to the diamond king. When that held the trick, West, misled by South’s play, continued with 5K RUN/WALK
the diamond six. This gave declarer nine tricks via four spades, one heart, two diamonds
and two clubs. Then West discarded a diamond on the spade ace, so Lin took 10 tricks and
gained 10 international match points when South’s opening bid of one diamond was passed
out at the other table.
