NEW!!! - Maritime Bridgeline Newletter
Smile of the Day

You know you're in trouble when the first thing the opponents decide
to do is draw trumps, and you're the declarer.

♣ 

Overheard at the bridge club: We had a 75-percent game last night!
Three out of four opponents thought we were idiots.

 

Alvin Roth a very ethical player is defending 7NT, vulnerable, in a money rubber bridge game where the declarer reduces to a three card ending.  Dummy has the Axx of spades and declarer the KJ10.   The lead is in declarer's hand and he leads the SJ.   Second hand has xxx and Roth Qxx.  Second hand goes into an act trying to make declarer think he has the queen and finally plays low. Declarer, taken in by the hesitation, also plays low.  Roth, holding the queen, also plays low allowing the jack to take the trick and the declarer to make 7NT.  When Roth's partner asks him why he didn't take the SQ,  Roth says:  "Because I thought you had it!" 

 

Man meets woman at bridge club and they decide to play in the evening duplicate. They play all the same conventions- Keycard, Transfers, Short Club, etc. so they really have nothing to go over. They have a big game and win. They go to have a cup of coffee at a restaurant and go over the hands which of course puts them in a good mood, She invites him to her apartment for a drink. They are sitting on the couch and one thing leads to another. Before you know it, clothes are flying around all over the place. In the midst of all this passion, he screams"  "Alert:"  She says:  "Yes, what"  He says:  "it could be short."

♣        AJ109753                     Q

West leads the  2 to RHO's ace. RHO returns a diamond, LHO pitches. If you overtake the ♣Q, RHO holds up as long as possible with ♣Kxxx. If you play another club, he exits a diamond. Over to YOU!
