Mur­phy’sIn two golf I play points­the golf Law short­estis as a ap­plies straightwell dis­tanceas at bridge,line both that be­tweengames.and goes through fair­ways a re­pel; large and tree; if haz­ardsyou’re hav­ing at­tract, your best round ever, it will rain. In bridge, if you need a 3-2 break, the suit will break 4-1. In to­day’s deal, South took the ace of spades and led the jack and then a low di­a­mond to the king. East took his ace and led the jack of hearts. South couldn’t run dummy’s di­a­monds, and when he went af­ter the clubs, the de­fense got two clubs, two hearts and a di­a­mond. At Trick Two, South can lead his eight of di­a­monds to dummy’s nine. If East takes the ten and shifts to hearts, South wins in his hand and over­takes the jack of di­a­monds to set up the di­a­monds, win­ning four di­a­monds, three spades and two hearts. If East plays low on the first di­a­mond, dummy leads a low di­a­mond. East must duck again, and then South at­tacks the clubs for nine tricks.
