With KQ10 in hand opposite rags in dummy, play low to the queen first, not the king — you hope to avoid a guess later by misleading the defender with the ace sitting over you into thinking his partner has the King, and therefore it’s right to take the Ace

The Ventura County Star just discontinued printing the bridge column.  A member of the Ojai Valley Bridge Club Board called the Star and talked to John Moore, the editor.  He was told that if the Star gets enough feedback from subscribers, they will reconsider.
Please help us reinstate the bridge column by calling John Moore at (805) 437-0200 or by e-mailing him at and expressing your desire to see the bridge column restored.  Thanks for your help.
