BEZIQUE-2

Trick 5  North’s trumps were no longer of vital importance to him, and could be played if desired.  The two Kings were important because North had made up his mind to save for Kings, and it is an error of tactics to change one’s mind during the poker game

The Aces and 10s were important , because they furnish brisques.  So North led the ♣ J.  South  had a bezique in his hand, but unfortunately he could not win the trick and declare it.  the best he could do was to play the ♥ J.  North drew the ♦ 8, and South the ♦ Q.

Trick 6 North led the ♦ 8.  South won with the ♦ 10, putting away a brisque for himself, and declared bezique.  South’s 40 points for bezique was his first score, and he was a long way behind North’s 320 points.  South drew the ♥ 10, and North the ♣ A.

Trick 7 South now had the lead.  He chose the ♣ 7 and scored 10 points, making his total 50.  it was the best lead,because the lead of either heart would probably be trumped and a brisque lost.  He had to save for four Queens, and the ♦ J was out of the question since there was always the possibility of declaring double bezique.  North was more or less compelled to win with the ♣ Q.  North drew the ♦ 8, and South the ♠ Q.

Trick 8  North led the ♦ 8, and South won with the ♣ 8 and declared four Queens (60 points) giving him a total of 110.  north, with a total of 320 points, was still well ahead, but he noted with some concern that South should be able to declare double bezique if he was lucky enough to draw poker the other ♦ J.  South drew the ♠ 9, and North the ♠ 8.

Trick 9  South led the ♠ 9, and North won with the ♠ 10.  North drew the ♠ J, and South the ♠ 8.

Trick 10 North led the ♠ 8, and south played the other ♠ 8, and South won with the ♥ 10.  South drew the ♦ K, and North the ♥ 8.
