District 17 has created a short survey to get player input about Regional
tournaments. I would appreciate if you could click on the website link
below and take the survey. It takes less than 5 minutes to answer a few
questions.
The data will be used to consider what kinds of improvements can be
made with D17 tournaments.
http://www.d17acbl.org/index.php?page=survey
If the above hotlink does not work, you can also find the survey link in
the “news” section of the District website.
Thanks in advance.

MINUTES OF THE DECEMBER 14, 2014 UNIT 356 BOARD OF DIRECTORS MEETING
President Barry Abrahams called the meeting to order at 12:35 PM at the Hotel Tucson. Barry Abrahams,
Gordon Diss, Dan Faulkner, Ann Hinge, Judson Jones, Adair Karlin, Joan Merrill, Jane Pendley, Carolyn
Reynolds, Steve Reynolds, and Ann Shaylor were present.
1. The minutes of the November 2, 2014 meeting were approved as corrected. The second sentence of
item 8 was replaced with "For the Member Appreciation Events, Steve Reynolds will check with the Skyline Country Club for an available June date and with Hotel Tucson for the winter date."
2. Carolyn Reynolds gave the treasurer's report. The net income for November was $1283. The year-todate deficit is approximately $1500.
3. As membership chair, Carolyn reported no change.
4. Steve Reynolds, tournament chair, said we are well stocked for pencils, cards, beer and wine. He will
buy team score cards. Everything is ready for the regional. It was noted that a caddy master who will be
at the tournament is needed. Judd Jones volunteered to do that job beginning at the regional. Eric Bell has
arranged a training section for directors at 5 PM on Wednesday, January 7, 2015. This training is for those
who will direct unit games.
5. Adair Karlin announced that Mike Passell will be one of the speakers at the regional. She is working on
the flyer for the April sectional.
6. Ann Hinge reported that the unit now has a Facebook page. If members find outdated information on
the website, they need to contact ACBL to get it updated.
7. Joan Merrill provided copies of the 2015 unit calendar. It is up-to-date except for the date of the June
Member Appreciation Game.
8. In spite of emails sent to I/NLM members, Gordon Diss said there are only 8 tables in the NLM section
today.
9. Two board members mentioned possible new undertakings. Steve Reynolds is looking into an NLM
weekend. His idea includes a bus to Douglass, fee of approximately $200/person, and a maximum of 13
tables. Judd Jones is working with a local teacher re. the possibility of teaching bridge to her students.
10. Barry Abrahams announced that the election of officers for 2015 will take place at the January 4th
board meeting at the Adobe Bridge Club.
The meeting was adjourned at 1:08 PM.
Respectfully submitted,
Jane Pendley

One Wish
A bridge duffer was polishing a lamp and… poof! Out popped a genie who said, “I
will grant you one wish.”
The duffer unfolded a map of the world and said, “Let all of these countries live in
peace and harmony.”
“You’ve got to be kidding! I’m only a genie.”
The duffer thought for a while and then suggested, “OK, then make me a winning
bridge player.”
“Hmm… ” the genie pondered. “Let me see that map again.”

That 1NT opening showed 15-17 HCP, after which the
auction inches its way up to 4♠. West leads the ♦Q, won by
your Ace. You have one loser in each of the side-suits, so to
make your contract you must avoid losing a trump trick.
In your search for the Queen of trumps you could choose to finesse against West, or to finesse against
East, or to “play for the drop” (hoping that the suit is 2-2 or the ♠Q is singleton). The general rule, when
holding a 9-card fit, is to play for the drop, all things being equal that is about a 58% chance.
So, the question is “Do you play for the drop?”
Absolutely not! Why settle for 58% when you can have 100%? Yes, it’s time for some counting. N-S
have a combined 22 HCP, that leaves E-W with 18. West has already played the ♦Q, leaving precisely
15 or 16 HCP in the East hand. As East has already advertised 15-17 he must have all the missing high
cards with the possible exception of one of the missing Jacks. So at Trick 2 you lead a Spade to Dummy’s Ace and then, when East plays low on the second round, you finesse the Jack with complete confidence. That’s 10 tricks for those who count, but only 9 for the rule-followers.

That was too easy, let’s kick it up a notch and change the problem slightly. We’ll leave the bidding the
same, and Declarer and Dummy will have the same hands (which are about to be repeated below before
they disappear off the top of your screen), but we’ll change the unseen hands around a bit.

♣ Q4
This time the opening lead is the Heart Five, which East wins with the Jack. East continues with the ♥K
and you ruff. Who has the ♠Q now? There’s no way of knowing. West has 1-3 HCP, but you don’t know
what they are. All you know is that West has no points in Hearts. Where can you find more information?
It must be safe to play three rounds of Diamonds, the suit is most unlikely to be 4-1. How so? East
opened 1NT so won’t have a singleton, and West would probably have led one if he had a singleton. So,
you cash ♦A, ♦K, on which East plays the Queen and then the Jack. There’s nothing to be gained by
playing a third Diamond, instead you lead a Club to Dummy’s King and East’s Ace. Back comes the ♣J
and the problem can now be solved. Who has the ♠Q?
Yes, this time it is in the West hand! By postponing trumps and playing on the side-suits first, you have
discovered that East has all the missing high cards in Hearts, Diamonds and Clubs. That comes to 16
HCP and the ♠Q is surely with West. Here’s the full deal:

♣ Q4
That was well sleuthed by Declarer, unearthing the necessary clues before playing the vital suit (trumps,
in this case). But East could have done better, he went like a lamb to the slaughter. If Declarer wants to
gather useful information then it is East’s job to lead him up the garden path. He would have done better
to win that opening lead with the Heart King (a false clue that he does not have the Jack). At Trick 2 he
shifts to the ♦Q then, later when he takes Dummy’s ♣K with his Ace, he returns the Ten (more misinformation, it suggests that he does not have the ♣J either). Tricky stuff! Now, our gullible Declarer will place
two Jacks with West, leaving no room for the ♠Q. So, Declarer finesses for the ♠Q against East, and it’s
down one! Nice defense!
