TAKE ADVANTAGE OF
, YOUR MISTAKES
By OSWALD JACOBY
Written for NEA Service
All bridge players make mis-
takes. Good players merely make
I fewer mistakes than bad players
;do. It's important to remember,
' however, that a really fine player
! will criticize himself severely for
a mistake that most people
wouldn't even notice.
I'm reminded of a "mistake"
made in last year's Summer Na-
: tional Championships because this
year's tournament begins in Wash-
ington, D. C.. on Aug. 1. In that
: hand played last August, Harry
! Harkavy led the four of spades
trom the West hand Dummy's king
won the first trick, and declarer
next led a low diamond from dum-
i my and finessed the eight from his
! own hand
Harkavy won with the jack of
diamonds and considered his next
est players, blamed himself for not
foreseeing the difficult guess that
his partner would have. He could
have relieved this guess by cashing
the ace of spades before leading
the nine of clubs. &
This would make it perfectly
clear to East that a spade
return was not wanted. East
would have won with the king of
clubs that would have returned a
club, thus leading to the defeat of
rangements and on the
tables laid for eight
