The result was two separate Card Rook gameson Saturday. Forty-eight players 19 and youngertook part. For most, it was not the first tournamentexperience.“We have one of the largest groups of kids” saidRowley, “and we have games for them at our regional.They’re used to playing in tournaments and they’relearning discipline. When the boards hit the table,they are serious, quiet and in control. They behavebetter than some of the adults.”A lot of the students also have experience at theYouth NABCs, which have attracted players from allover the world since the first one in 2008. The 10thYouth NABC is scheduled for the 2017 SummerNABC in Toronto. The parents of some said they aremaking plans to be in Toronto next summer.The student players who attended the Fall NABCon Saturday come from two area schools with bridgeprograms: Bear Lake Elementary School in Apopkaand Teague Middle School in Altamonte Springs.Ed Foundation reorgtargets talent, donationsThe ACBL Educational Foundation is in themidst of a major organizational restructuring aimedat attracting specialized trustees and an executivedirector who can guide large fundraising projects.ACBL President Ken Monzingo created theEducation Task Force early this year. Accordingto Ed Foundation President Barbara Heller, itsrecommendation was “to adopt new bylaws, create anew slate of trustees and empower them to determinethe needs for the future.”According to the Ed Foundation, “We know thatmost growth in ACBL membership comes from thework of bridge teachers and clubs. Providing supportand incentives for this work is key. It is very unlikelythat the ACBL will have the resources neededto widely supportbridge education. Itis very likely, withthe restructuredFoundation, thatmany tax-deductiblefunds can be acquiredto support bridgeeducation.

Daily BulletinPage 3Sunday, December 4, 2016JUST FOR NEW PLAYERSDo’s and Don’ts to helpyour game – Part 10By Brent ManleyDOListen to thebidding. Thisadmonition couldhave been includedwith the partabout maintainingconcentration.Everything thathappens during theauction providesinformation – datathat can be usedby both sides once the final contract is reached.Think about it. If your left-hand opponent passesas dealer, the information is already flowing:LHO does not have enough high-card strength toopen. He almost surely has fewer than 12 HCP.Remembering this can help you locate key honorsas you strive to make your contract or go forovertricks.Say one of your opponents enters the auctionto show a two-suited hand. Conventions such asthe Michaels cuebid and Unusual 2NT typicallypromise at least 5-5 in the two long suits – moreinformation you can use as you play the contract.As pointed out in a previous article on this page,declarer has a huge advantage in these situationsjust from knowing that the Michaels or 2NT bidderhas at most three cards outside his two long suits.If LHO opens the bidding, partner passes andRHO also passes, you have more information youcan use. For example, if RHO shows up with anace, the highest other card in his hand would be ajack.Sometimes the opponents help you straightenout your own auction. Say you open 1NT, LHOpasses and partner bids 2 , a transfer to hearts.RHO doubles to show length and strength indiamonds. If you pass, partner knows you do nothave three hearts. If you accept the transfer bybidding 2 , partner knows you have a fit. You willawait his decision about how high you should goin the bidding. Without the double, it would take atleast one more round of bidding to find out if youand partner have a heart fit.Take all your chances,No. 10By Eddie KantarDlr: WestVul: N-S A6 Q87432 J432 3 5 AK K7 A Q J 10 9 5 4 2With only your side vulnerable, West opens3 , partner passes and East ups the ante to 4 . Youhave no qualms about bidding 5 , and everyonepasses. The Q is led. Plan the play.SolutionYou are in the dummy for the last time andhave to decide whether to lead up to the K ortake the club finesse. The club finesse is much lessthan 50% because you can’t pick up K-x-x(x) inThere are many more examples of howlistening to the bidding and interpreting theinformation can help you take more tricks. Sufficeit to say it’s in your interest to make listening animportant part of your growth as a player.DON’TMake the “normal” lead if the auction screamsfor a trump lead. Consider the following auction.You are South.WestNorth1NTPass2NTPass4 All PassEast1 2 3 PassSouthPassPassYou hold K J 9 8 6 8 7 6 K Q J 10 A 5The K looks like an automatic lead, but ifyou consider the auction, your choice will be alow heart. Think about the bidding. It’s highlylikely that West has only three hearts. With four, heprobably would have bid 3 at his second turn. Youcan also count on dummy to have no more than twospades. East will certainly start right in on spadesso he can take some spade ruffs in dummy – if youlet him. The auction tells you East likely has atleast 10 cards in the majors, so he will be able toget back to his hand by ruffing one of the minors,probably diamonds.If you start with a trump and dummy has adoubleton spade, you will certainly get in again tolead another trump, limiting declarer to just onespade ruff. Even if you don’t defeat the contract byleading a heart, you will certainly hold down theovertricks, which could give you a good score.the East hand. Play the odds and lead a diamond upto the king, a 50% play unless West started with asingleton diamond and didn’t lead it – not too likelyas most players lead singletons even when they don’thave one. If the K loses to the ace and today is yourlucky day, the K will drop under the ace (13%). Youwill make this contract about 55% of the time.Even if you had eight clubs to the A-K-J-10, youshould still lead a diamond at trick two as you have areasonable chance of dropping the Q (a little morethan 50%) if the diamond king loses to West’s ace.Two chances are better than one.

When DeYoung“signed off” in 5 , Jacobs thought he was supposedto go on to slam with the higher of the two key cardpossibilities.After asking a lot of questions about the auction,West led the K and Jacobs took the ace. He playeda spade to dummy at trick two, cashed the K andtried the Q. East ruffed low, however, and Jacobsoverruffed. He then played a diamond to dummy’s10, and when it held he played a fourth spade fromdummy, on which East discarded a heart.Now a diamond from hand went to West’s jackand dummy’s queen, pulling the last trump. On thefifth spade, East pitched another heart as Jacobsdiscarded his losing club. Now the J from dummywas covered by the king and Jacobs’ ace.When Jacobs played another diamond, discardinga heart from dummy, East pitched yet another heart.Jacobs, down to the 8 7, exited his hand with the 7. West, who had led the K from a doubleton K-Q,had to play the queen. East, down to the singleton J,followed with that card.
