Pass 3 V Pass 4V Pass Pass Pass Opening lead: King of Players tend to regard those bridge maxims as holy writ. That can be fatal. While they all con- tain an element of truth, they are generalisms and do not cater to specific situations. Here is a case in point. Reluctant to raise to the three- level with only three low cards in support, North showed tremen- dous all-round strength with a cue-bid of West's suit. When South rebid hearts, which virtual- ly confirmed a five-card suit (with only four, South had the option of bidding three diamonds), North continued to game in that suit. West led the king of clubs and was not thrilled with the dummy that hit the table, especially when East followed with the deuce of clubs to the first trick. There were two tricks available in clubs and one in trumps but no possibility of a trick in either spades or diamonds. If the con- tract was going to be set, the fourth trick would have to come from the trump suit. If partner held the king of hearts, all would be well. If part- ner held any lower honor, some work would be needed to set up a second trump trick for the defense. West cashed a second club trick and, disregarding the shib- boleth "Never give declarer a ruff-sluff," continued with a third club. Declarer ruffed in dummy, taking a useless spade discard from hand, then led a trump to the jack and West's ace. Then came the killer -- West led a fourth round of clubs, East ruffed with the ten and declarer was forced to overruff with the queen. Well-planned defense had promoted West's nine of hearts to the setting trick.

Get a friend to help with a big job. Don't feel indebted; there's something you can give your friend in return. It might be a service you can provide, not money. You can both do well using the barter system. LEO (July 23-A1.  Today is a 7. Youe started new projects, but a job you were working on isn't quite finished.

Discoveffng you can't have what you want is annoying, but not fatal. And the way to get it is by upgrading your skills. You can do that. If DIKEMBEI113 IS YOgR BIRTH,: There's a lesson to be learned this year: Have your good  sense rule your purchases, not your emotions. Don't overspend on gifts in December, even for a worthy cause. By February you'll have ways to contribute that don't use up your slim resources. Home's where you'll find love and entertainment in April. Follow the rules on the job in May, and by June you'll be given more freedom. If you're tight with your money through July, you can travel in August and October.
