WHAT ROBIN HOOD DID IN HIS SPARE TIME WEST NORTH EAST
32 K 10 8 4 AQ76

Robin Hood was well known in England for stealing from the wealthy and giving to the Q63 K9 J742
poor. But in his spare time, he and his merry band played bridge. David Bird has put
together a third collection of their adventures, “Arrow Through the Heart” (Master Point SOUTH
Press). The book contains many illustrations by Marguerite Lihou and 113 instructive J95
deals. Bird specializes in this type of entertaining bridge fiction. J87
In this deal, Robin Hood (South) was battling against Friar Tuck (East) and Much, A 10 8 5
the son of a local miller (West). What happened in three no-trump after West led the
diamond 10? Dealer: South; Vulnerable: Both
Hood had only five top tricks: three diamonds and two clubs. He could expect to get a The Bidding:
third club trick, but it was sensible to attack the majors first.
SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST OPENING
Declarer, after taking the first trick in his hand, ran the heart eight. What happened next? 1 Clubs Pass 1 Hearts Pass
1 NT Pass 3 NT All Pass LEAD:
This deal was played early one morning, with the players sitting cross-legged on a 10 Diamonds
coarsely woven blanket laid on the ground in Sherwood Forest. But Friar Tuck was wide
awake. Hoping his partner held the club queen, he won with his heart queen and shifted
to the club knave, as the jack was called in England until well into the 1970s.
South took the trick with dummy’s king and played another heart. East won with his ace
and led a second club. Declarer had little choice but to duck in his hand, so West took
the trick and returned a diamond. South won and, with a shrug, hoped he could guess
spades to get a ninth trick. However, East claimed two spade tricks to go with two
hearts and one club already taken. It was the only winning defense.
