TRADITION AND ST. LUCIE WEST REAL ESTATE SALES
TOP SALES OF THE WEEK: August 28 to September 2
August has turned to September, but some things seem to stay the same ... like the bustling local real
estate market. Some 22 single-family residences and lots changed hands the week of Aug. 28-Sept. 3.
The top sale of the week in the region was the home at 11580 SW Apple Blossom Trail. First put on
the market in May for $449,900, this 3-bedroom, 3-bathoom, 2,626-square-foot residence fetched
$430,000 on Aug. 30.
The second-highest sale of the week was the home at 18019 SW Cosenza Way. Originally listed for
$335,025 in July, this 2-bedroom, 2-bathoom, 1,842-square-foot abode sold for full price on Aug. 30.

INSTRUCTIVE DEALS FROM AN INSTRUCTOR WEST NORTH EAST

good eye for an instructive deal, so this week let’s look at a sextet of them.
First, we have a defense that requires deduction and disobeying the textbook. It is not AJ6
as straightforward as it appears when you look at the full diagram. 92
Against three no-trump, West was right to lead his fourth-highest heart, not the AK74
queen. Only lead an honor from three touchers (Q-J-10) or two touchers and a gap of
one card to a near-toucher (A-Q-J or Q-J-9). Dealer: South; Vulnerable: Both
South plays dummy’s king in the hope that West holds the ace. The Bidding:

if East leads back the heart six, it blocks the suit. West wins with his jack and plays LEAD:
another heart, but East can take only two more tricks with his 10 and eight. South 4 Hearts
then claims nine winners: two spades, two diamonds and five clubs.
From the Rule of Eleven (4 from 11 is 7), East knows that South started with only one
heart higher than the four, which must be the jack (declarer misguessed at trick one)
or the nine. If it is the jack, South must have begun with only two hearts; otherwise,
he would have played low from the dummy at trick one to guarantee a heart trick. So,
East should lead back his 10. Here, he wins the trick and plays another heart. But if
South could cover the 10 with the jack, West must make that deduction about jack-
doubleton and lead a low heart at trick three, not cash his nine from an original Q-9-5-
