while on a road trip with a bunch
of pals. Or “Another One Bites
the Dust.” While Freddie Mercu-
ry and the ’70s British rock band
phenom “Queen” are gone, Scot-
tish singer Gary Mullen and his
band – The Works – keep the leg-
end alive, and they’re returning
to the Sunrise Theatre this Satur-
day with “One Night of Queen,”
an absolutely explosive “high
energy, fully-realized Queen con-
cert,” trumpets the show pro-
mo. And it is. Mullen’s ability to
channel Mercury, Queen’s late,
great front man, is amazing, and
the two-hour show, bringing all
the sweat, stamina and state-of-
the-art staging of the Mercury
days, has been touring to packed
houses all over the U.K., Germa-

much non-stop since 2001. Mul-
len’s got the pipes, the look, the

the loan of six artworks – any one of which
would be a welcome addition to the collec-

for presentation to the Athena Society.

Roberts and VBMA curator Danielle
Johnson made two trips to New York City
for the purpose of finding art objects that
would fit the museum’s mission to collect,
preserve and present “important American
and international works of art.”

“There was so much to select from,” said
Roberts, who notes that this year’s quest for
acquisition contenders was different from
2017’s search. He was brand new to the pro-
gram back then.

Referring to Johnson, he said, “I had a
curator to help me this time. I didn’t have
to single-handedly look at hundreds – if not
a thousand – artworks to get six to offer the
Athena Society.”

Roberts quickly added that the VBMA
Collection Committee vetted a number of
art objects presented to it by Johnson and
him to arrive at that half-dozen.

As mentioned last week, books from Master Point Press are typically available in Q 10 5 3 9872 KJ4
standard book form or as a PDF computer file that you can open and read or print.
SOUTH
Strangely, given how useful it is, “Should I or Shouldn’t I?” by Marc Smith, which runs AKQJ5
to 241 pages, is in PDF format only. The well-written book, as an addendum to the title AK92
points out, covers the difficult subject of drawing trumps in suit contracts. J6
A6
How quickly should South draw trumps in this seven-spade deal after West has led the
diamond eight? Dealer: South; Vulnerable: East-West

North’s four-heart response was a splinter bid announcing at least game-going values in The Bidding:
spades with a singleton (or void) in hearts. Then came four control-bids before the jump
to seven. SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST OPENING
1 Spades Pass 4 Hearts Pass
Declarer normally counts losers in the long-trump hand, but when in a grand slam, he 5 Clubs Pass 5 Diamonds Pass LEAD:
cannot afford any. He should count winners. 5 Hearts Pass 6 Diamonds Pass 8 Diamonds
7 Spades Pass Pass Pass
Here, South has 12: five spades, two hearts, four diamonds and one club. So he needs
only one ruff in the dummy for his 13th winner. This means that declarer, after taking the
first trick with his diamond jack (honor from the shorter side first), can immediately draw
three rounds of trumps and claim.

If he starts with the heart ace and a heart ruff, East overruffs the dummy, gives West a
diamond ruff and receives a second ruff for down three.

Apart from Master Point Press, books may be purchased from Baron Barclay Bridge
Supplies (baronbarclay.com) and The Bridge World (bridgeworld.com).
