Clarke, an English science fiction writer who lived in Ceylon (now Sri Lanka) from 1956 until his death in 2008, said: “I don’t pretend we have all the answers. But the questions are certainly worth thinking about.” Yesterday, I mentioned that a friend asked me when I count out a deal; do I start immediately or wait until it is necessary? I answered at trick one. The question came after this deal. East might have opened three clubs, but wanted a seven-card suit at unfavor- able vulnerability. After North balanced with a takeout double, I advanced with two spades because I was willing to compete with three hearts on the next round. North might well have rebid with a four-club splinter bid, which would have given us a shot at reaching six spades. Obviously, four spades was easy, so I imagined we were in slam, where I needed to find the heart queen. I took the first trick on the board, drew trumps and led dummy’s club. East rose with his ace and played the club queen. I ruffed on the board, cashed the diamond ace, ruffed a diamond (East unwisely discarded a heart) and ruffed a club. What had I learned? I knew West had started with two spades, six dia- monds and at least three clubs. So, East was longer in hearts than West. But from East’s heart discard, I had a strong feeling that West had the heart queen. So, I played a heart to my ace and led another heart, claiming 12 tricks when the queen did appear. Keep counting. Elliot Roberts dies; manager for Neil Young, Joni Mitchell NEWYORK (AP) — The manager of Neil Young, Joni Mitchell and many other rock stars has died. Elliot Roberts was 76. His agency Lookout Manage- ment says in a statement that Roberts died Friday. No other details were available. Young is known for his many clashes with record industry offi- cials but said in a statement on his website that Roberts was “the greatest manager of all time.” Roberts was a college dropout who befriended David Geffen and with him helped launch the California rock scene of the 1960s and 1970s. Besides representing such top acts as Young; Mitchell; and Crosby, Stills and Nash, Elliot helped found Asylum Records, where performers included Jack- son Browne, Linda Ronstadt and the Eagles.
