K AKQ J 10 9
Strangely, in bridge, sometimes the strategy is chosen first and in one way the concern K974 A653
for tricks is secondary. In Chicago or a team tournament, making the contract is all that 8532 SOUTH J74
matters. But in a duplicate pair event, overtricks are usually valuable. If the room is winning AQ5
only 10 tricks in four spades and you can collect 11, you get a top. If the odds are in your AQ742
favor, you should try for the extra winner. Q8

The difference is highlighted by this deal. How should South tackle four hearts in teams
and in pairs? The defenders start with three rounds of diamonds. Dealer: North; Vulnerable: Neither
The auction was straightforward. Note that South should have at least five hearts for The Bidding:

crosses to the board and leads toward his queen. He will succeed whenever it is possible.
However, if an overtrick is desired, South should take the heart finesse. A priori, East will
have a doubleton king some 20 percent of the time, and the chance that West will hold a
singleton king (when finessing costs the contract) is only 6.25 percent. But if declarer’s
queen does lose to the singleton king, and he goes down one, it helps to be sitting
opposite a sympathetic partner, not a result merchant.
