IF NOT BY HOOK, THEN BY CROOK WEST NORTH EAST
J62 A4 Q 10 9 8 7
By Phillip Alder - Bridge Columnist KQ654 92 J873

Albert Einstein said, “Nature hides her secrets because of her essential loftiness, but Q8 97643 K
not by means of ruse.”
Bridge experts sometimes hide their secrets by means of ruse — as in this week’s deal. K53
It was played by Australian junior international Andy Hung (South) and was described A 10
by Ron Klinger, that country’s most prolific writer-teacher-player. A Q 10
A J 10 5 2
East’s two-diamond opening showed a weak major two-suiter. (This gadget is becoming
increasingly popular in the tournament world.) Hung started with a takeout double, Dealer: East; Vulnerable: North-South
being a tad wary about his short holdings in the majors, but when West pre-empted to
three hearts, Hung bid three no-trump, hoping for the best. The Bidding:
After West led the heart king, and East encouraged with the three (upside-down SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST OPENING
signals), what did declarer do? 2 Diamonds
Dbl. 3 Hearts Pass Pass LEAD:
South had eight winners: two spades, one heart, four diamonds and one club. Extra 3 NT Pass Pass Pass K Hearts
winners could have been established in clubs, but that involved losing the lead and,
presumably, watching the opponents run their hearts. Was there a possibility?
Hung found a play that would have occurred to almost no one. At trick two, he returned
the heart 10! Yes, West, given his partner’s signal at trick one, should have played low,
but he won with his queen and shifted to a spade.
Declarer won with dummy’s ace, cashed the diamonds, then played the ace and another
club. The heart suit was blocked, so the defenders took only one club and three hearts.
If South’s ruse had not worked, he would have rued not being in five — or, here, six! — clubs.
