HOW WELL DO YOU SPOT THE SPOTS? NORTH
874
Mark Twain said, “I was born modest; not all over, but in spots.” WEST A52 EAST
53 K96 962
One aspect of bridge that separates the top players from others is taking full advantage QJ9 10 8 4 3 K 10 7 4
of the useful spot cards (2 through 10) — in particular, knowing when a low spot is a Q83 J 10 5 2
winner. KQJ76 SOUTH 52
A K Q J 10
How is that relevant in today’s deal? After West leads the club king, how should South 863
proceed in four spades? Did West have a more successful opening lead? A74
A9
South’s jump to four spades was a slight overbid with a six-loser hand, but we tend to
bid game with any excuse. Of course, here, if South had chosen to rebid three no- Dealer: South; Vulnerable: North-South
trump, North would surely have passed, and declarer would have had nine top tricks.
(Also, there was a case for West’s making a takeout double over one spade, not a two- The Bidding:
club overcall. It would not have made much difference here, but the double would have
been more flexible.) SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST OPENING
1 Spades 2 Clubs 2 Spades Pass
In four spades, though, South has only those same nine tricks; he is faced with four 4 Spades Pass Pass Pass LEAD:
losers: two hearts, one diamond and one club. Is there any hope? K Clubs

Look at those interesting club spots. Declarer should win the first trick, draw trumps and
return the club nine. Suppose West finds the best defense, taking the trick and shifting
to the heart queen. South wins on the board, leads the club 10 and discards a heart
loser. Yes, West takes that trick and cashes a heart winner, but South’s diamond loser
evaporates on the now-high club eight.

If West had led anything other than a club, the contract would have failed.
