Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

Using modern methods, East might decide to open 2 even with four spades on the side. South won't care--2NT now shows a 1NT opener with a diamond stopper. That should effectively quiet West. so 2NT it will be. Note that while the hand record says you can make nine tricks, that's only if you drop the K singleton off-side--pretty unlikely!

David Loeb Hand Analysis
WestNorthEastSouth
 Pass22NT
All pass   

Lynn Berg typically provides analysis for 299ers on boards 1-18. Additionally, analysis for more advanced players is available for boards 1-2, 8, and 8.

The Bidding: In 2nd seat, East has a choice between passing and opening a Weak Two Diamonds . As Andrew Gumperz discusses in his "Better Preempts IV: Preempts by Seat Position (part 1)" article, preempts should be more disciplined in 2nd seat because dealer's pass makes game less likely for the opponents and partner is an unpassed hand. Here, East's diamond suit with 3 of the top 5 honors, has nice trick taking potential. East's 4-card spade suit shouldn't dissuade East from opening 2. South's 2NT bid shows a strong notrump hand with diamonds stopped. West and North have nothing to say. The auction ends at 2NT.

The Play: West is likely to lead the 8, top of a doubleton. From East's perspective the 8 could be a singleton, top of a doubleton, or from Q98. If West held K98, South would not be eager to venture 2NT. If declarer has KQ9, rising with the Ace would immediately give declarer 2 diamond tricks. Playing the 10 seems best. Declarer wins with the King (or Queen) and takes a losing club finesse. If using the Smith Echo defensive signal, West can discourage a diamond continuation by following low on declarer's club lead. This rules out Q87 for West. East knows to switch to a major. To beat 2NT, East must find a heart switch to allow East to score heart tricks en passant. On a spade switch, declarer will score a spade trick and have the tempo to score a diamond for their 8th trick.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

East is just a Jack too light to open without a shapelier hand. West opens 1. East now bids 1 and West 2. This hand isn't quite good enough to jump-shift. East raises to 3 and West now bids 3, which East will happily raise to game. Not in slam though it takes oodles of tricks? Try reversing the North and South hands and be lucky to make ten tricks.

  1. artificial game force

The Bidding: East's hand falls short of the Rule of 20 and the Suggestion of 22 for a 1st or 2nd seat opener. East's Tens and spade honor combination merit an upgrade. Opening 1 seems best. A 1 overcall consumes no room. South doesn't have a preference for a diamond lead, and doesn't have a good hand. Passing seems best. West responds 1. North is a bit weak for a 1 overcall. After North passes, East rebids 1. West's 2 rebid is an artificial Game Force , 4th Suit Forcing . East doesn't have 3-card heart support. East cannot bid 2NT without a diamond stopper. So East must temporize with a 2 or 3 rebid. Temporizing with 2 seems best because it leaves room for West to bid 2NT or 3. West shouldn't assume East is 6-5.

Since East has less than 3 hearts and less than 4 diamonds, East must be at least 4-4 in the black suits. West's Losing Trick Count of 5 and 19 Support Points are inflated by West's spade singleton. East's slow spade honors may be wasted. East's hand is limited only be their failure to jump shift. Slam is possible. Bidding 3 shows a club fit and gives East a chance to show 2-card heart support. The downside of bidding 3 is West would need to jump to 5 to confirm hearts as trump and invite slam. Rebidding 3 seems best. East raises to 4. East is likely 4-2-3-4 or 4-2-2-5 on this auction. Since East couldn't bid 2NT along the way, a diamond loser is expected. If East held 3 key cards and extra values, East might have manufactured a 4 bid to show slam interest. Passing 4 seems best.

The Lead: North suspects concern about diamonds motivated the preference to play 4 rather than 3NT. If East-West have a diamond stopper, it will be in West's hand. Even so, a diamond lead seems best.

The Play: Dummy has 2 quick entries. Dummy's 7 (or 6) may provide a late entry. Declarer has several options for using dummy's entries:

1. Double finessing hearts offers a 13% chance to avoid a heart loser and a 71% chance to hold heart losers to 1. Finessing against the King offers the same chance for 5 tricks, but lowers the chance for 6 tricks to 3%.

2. To avoid a diamond loser, declarer can finesse against North for the King or take a ruffing finesse against South. Finessing against the King risks losing dummy's spade entry, but avoids a diamond loser if the finesse wins. A ruffing finesse offers similar risks and rewards, but requires using the Ace as entry.

3. Cashing the Ace and finessing against South for the Queen offers a 41% chance for 4 club tricks and an 89% chance for 3 or 4 club tricks.

The chance of avoiding a heart loser is low. Double finessing hearts seems an expensive use of dummies entries. Finessing against the King seems best. If a diamond isn't led initially, combining chances in clubs and spades seems best. A successful finesse against the King, a 50% chance, provides an entry to dummy and allows declarer to discard their diamond loser. If the finesse loses, declarer loses an entry to dummy but can still discard their diamond loser. Now declarer can fall back on attempting to drop the Queen. There is a 27% chance a defender holds Queen doubleton. Here, the lie of the cards is incredibly fortunate for declarer. Finessing against the King and King allows declarer to score 12 tricks when the Queen falls doubleton.

On a diamond lead, finessing against the King risks losing a spade, a diamond, and a dummy entry. Most declarers will not venture the spade finesse after a diamond lead. Declarer will score 11 or 12 tricks depending on whether they double finesse in hearts. A declarer who can see through the backs of the cards would finesse against the King, double finesse in hearts, drop the Queen to score all the tricks.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

North opens 1NT and will be in the NT game after South tries Stayman. Having listened to the auction, East may ignore the heart sequence and lead a diamond--a lot more uncomfortable for declarer. Just as in the last hand, the number of tricks shown on the hand record depends on an unlikely play--this time, finessing the 10 on the second club lead.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

East has a reasonable light opener in third seat. South doubles, and West bids 2, shutting up North. South can double again--strong enough--but should subside when partner doesn't jump. Luckily, hearts are under control for North, and he can ruff his loser in South's short trumps.
Play isn't easy when trumps are 4-2, especially if you've already ruffed a heart in dummy. Lead toward North and insert the 9 and cross your fingers.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

South might make an ugly 2 call in third seat--and the bad break will be painful, especially if West should double and East pass and make it a penalty double. Ouch. If South passes, it may pass out. If he opens a light 1, North will bid some number of NT--and that won't be any fun, either.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

West has a lovely hand that won't seem lovely as he goes on. Poor partner is next to broke, E-W are vulnerable, and nothing sits friendly. But West will open 1, which will pass around to South--and might pass out. South is a bit light to balance with 2 and way too light for 1NT, even in the pass-out seat. There are six losers and not much to do about 'em. As the saying goes, it's hard to fly on one wing.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

After South's 1 opener, they'll end up in NT, maybe not in game when there seems to be no fit. It will play well when the K is on side and the suit breaks. Declarer must be careful to plan for repeated spade finesses. The likely heart loser is a help too--no reason to worry about those clubs for now.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

This fine 17 point hand is too good for 1NT, So East opens 1. South bids 2--and I hope North can keep a straight face as he has to choose between hearts and a minor! He may just choose hearts with two honors, and South may bid an optimistic game. When the K cooperates, there are a lot of tricks to enjoy.

David Loeb Hand Analysis
WestNorthEastSouth
PassPass121
Pass32Pass4
Pass4All pass 
  1. 5+ and 5+ in a minor
  2. pass or correct

The Bidding: In 3rd seat, East has a choice between opening 1 and 1NT. With 17 HCP and a spade suit likely to produce 5 tricks, East is too strong to open 1NT. After East opens 1, South can Double for Takeout or make a Michaels Cue Bid . South expects East-West to have a big spade fit. The auction could get uncomfortably high after a takeout double. A Michaels cue bid seems best because it immediately shows 5+ hearts and an unspecified 5+ card minor. West has nothing to say. Continuations after a Michaels cue bid vary by partnership agreement. Since opener may compete to 3, it is important to have a way to immediately show game interest in hearts. Since 3 can be played as pass or correct, a 3 bid can be played as an artificial invitational heart raise. With that agreement, North bids 3, pass or correct.

In his "Versus Michaels or Unusual Notrump" article, Larry Cohen discusses a common defense against a Michaels cue bid. My "Transfers Over Michaels" articles discuss expert defensive agreements when one suit isn't known. With either defense, West's pass of the Michaels cue bid denies a competitive hand with spade support or a hand wishing to penalize North-South.

North's 3 bid may end the auction. East isn't eager to defend 3, but it isn't clear East-West have a place to play. East trick taking potential outside of spades is suspect. The strength of East's spade suit decreases the likelihood of a penalty double. If South is short in spades, East doesn't have much defense. Bidding 3 may push North-South to game. Passing seems best.

South's hand has game forcing playing strength if a fit is available. South's 4 bid shows their minor suit and their playing strength. North takes a preference for the heart game. At tables where East opens 1NT, North-South will have difficulty reaching 4.

The Play: East leads a top spade. Declarer sees the risk of being tapped in spades. The good news is that it will not be easy for East to regain the lead. Holding up risks a defensive overruff. Ruffing the first round of spades seems best. Declarer cashes the Ace and runs the 10. There is no upside for covering the 10. If declarer believes East-West's count, declarer may play for King-third onside. More likely, declarer will ruff the third round of diamonds and cross to the Ace to draw trump. Declarer is pleased when hearts break 3-3. At this point, declarer has 11 tricks. Declarer knows East is 5-3-3-2 or 6-3-3-1. West is 2-3-3-5 or 1-3-3-6. Declarer can take a lobbing finesse towards the Queen for their 12th trick or play East for King-doubleton. Here, playing for King-doubleton provides the 12th trick.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

North opens a scary 1. South bids 1, then happily passes North's 2 rebid. West may be inwardly growling with no bids to make and probably the best hand at the table--unless he decides to balance with 2. But South is never going to defend diamonds when he has clubs--this may turn into a bidding war where N-S will prevail because of the vulnerability.

East opens 1 and can justify a 3 raise of partner's response because of her diamond void. What a lucky hand: trumps and clubs both break. How friendly.

South opens 1 (with 3-3 in the minors, prefer clubs). West is unlikely to overcall a four card suit, so North gets to bid 1, which South raises. If West did bid 1, though, East wouldn't go quietly: this could be a really lively auction at some tables.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

Three Quick Tricks and a five card major should equal a 1 opening bid for West. North surely bids 2 whether or not West has opened. Now East has a real bidding problem. There may be a slam, but how to approach it when North has chewed up the bidding room? There will be more pairs in game than in slam on this one. Hearts present the dreaded two-way finesse. Since North has preempted, many will (this time correctly) play South for the missing Q and finesse toward the West hand.

David Loeb Hand Analysis

2NTPass3Pass
4All pass  

The Bidding: West's hand falls short of the Rule of 20 and the Suggestion of 22 for a 1st or 2nd seat opener. With 3 quick tricks, a 5-card major, and 3 Tens, West's hand merits an upgrade. After West opens 1, North has a choice between passing, preempting, and overcalling 1. North is a bit light for a 1 overcall. In his "Better Preempts: What is the upside?" article, Andrew Gumperz discusses why preempting over a minor suit opening has more upside than after a major suit opening. The unfavorable vulnerability and semi-balanced shape are negatives. Passing seems best.

East's 2 response is a Two Over One Game Force . Continuations vary by the partnership's 2/1 Style . If playing the Bergen style, West responds 2NT to show a balanced hand. If playing the Lawrence style, West cannot bid 2NT without a spade stopper. So West rebids 2 which doesn't guarantee extra length. Either way, East's heart raise shows a game forcing hand with 3-card heart support. West, with a Losing Trick Count of 8, isn't willing to cooperate with a slam try. So West bids 4. East, with 18 Support Points and a Losing Trick Count of 6, isn't certain the 5-level is safe. The auction ends at 4.

The Play: North leads the King, top of an honor sequence. With clubs breaking 3-3, declarer can score all the tricks if the guess the Queen.

South opens 1. North's best response is 1NT--2 promises a better hand, even though North has already passed. With both majors, East might now try a double--though I doubt it will happen often. If he does, West will happily bid 2. If 1NT passes back to West, he should double and East will play hearts--preferring length to strength for his choice.

South has a good enough suit to venture 3, but many hate to do that in first or second suit. If he passes, North will open 1, and South may not be able to bid those clubs if they are playing Drury . If South bids 1NT, North will surely bid 2 and South 3. Yikes. North is supposed to pass 3, but he may take a flier and bid 3NT. He'll get away with it this time, though hearts won't be the source of tricks he imagines.

South will be enchanted when he hears North open 1. East might double; he has great distribution for a double. South should just rare back and bid 4. North may reasonably infer that South is short in one of the minors, maybe both. Yup. There won't be any way to ask the right questions, so North may just take a chance and try the slam. He'll be rewarded. And yipee if the opening lead is the A. Now the hand is a yawn.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

The Rule of 20 would like those red honors to be in the long diamonds, But North may open 1 anyway. East will double and keep bidding. South should raise to 3 if possible in their agreement to show single raise values and four card support. West will be delighted to pass. What will North do? He might take the "advance sacrifice" of 4 right now. Then all Est can do is grind his teeth and double. The whole hand depends on whether or not North opens, don't you think?

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

North shouldn't want to preempt this horrid club suit, so East will get to open 1. West will raise spades over South's 2. With 5-5, East may be optimistic and go to the spade game, succeeding when South can't get partner in with dynamite.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

Here's a 20 point hand which should just be opened 1. Partner, naturally, bids 1. But then East jump shifts to 2 and West is delighted to raise. Only the bad spade break stops slam from making, and South will just sit there quietly and wait to wreak havoc.
