Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

West has to be careful after East opens 1--that's not good news. 2 delivers the best message. This is one time East might decide to rebid his five card suit; it's dangerous to bid 2NT with no heart stopper, but East has to do something...2 is another possibility. Now West knows there's no major suit fit and can settle for NT. With repeated club finesses, this hand will take 11 tricks in NT.

Lynn Berg typically provides analysis for 299ers on boards 1-18. Additionally, analysis for more advanced players is available for boards 1, 4, 8, and 10.

The Bidding: After East opens 1, West's 2 response is a Two Over One Game Force . For partnerships where a 2 or 2 response shows a 5+ card suit, West's 2 response shows a Game Force with clubs or a balanced Game Force. East's rebid depends on the partnership's 2/1 Style . If playing the Bergen style, East rebids 2NT to show 5(332) distribution. West is too strong to bid 3NT. West rebids their clubs to show 5+ clubs. East's rebid depends on style. From West's perspective, a 5-2 spade fit may have better play than 3NT. To help choose the right game, East can rebid 3 to show a stopper and avoid 3NT if the partnership lacks a heart stopper. Others will venture 3NT, worried that showing a diamond stopper increases the likelihood of a heart lead.

At tables where East rebids 3NT, West invites slam with a natural 4NT bid. East has a strong spade suit, but isn't likely to run without support. With no fitting club honor and a minimum opener, East declines the invitation.

At tables where East rebids 3 over 3, West follows the game before slam adage, and assumes East is looking for the right game. West's 3 bid shows at least a partial stopper. East temporizes with 3. If East has a minimum opener, East lacks a partial heart stopper. Opposite a minimum for this auction like AKJxx xxx Kxx xx, slam wouldn't be a favorite. East could have a better hand where slam would be laydown or on a finesse. West's slow route to 3NT is a mild slam try. East declines the slam try.

If playing the Lawrence style, East cannot rebid 2NT over 2 without a heart stopper. So East temporizes with a 2 rebid. East's 2 bid doesn't show extra length. West knows East doesn't have a 4-card side suit. So East is 5(332) or has 6+ spades. West isn't eager to look for a 4-3 fit. West prefers bidding 2NT to show stoppers in the red suits. East offers 3NT as the final contract. West 4NT bid is a natural slam try. East declines the slam try.

The Play: With diamonds breaking 3-3 and the K765 onside, declarer can take the first 11 tricks. Without a heart lead, declarer has the tempo to establish a long club for their 12th trick. In a diamond contract, declarer can establish clubs with a ruff and score 12 tricks on this fortunate layout.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

North opens 1 in fourth seat. When South responds 1, all North may safely do is bid 1: 2NT is a tough choice with a small singleton in hearts. With only seven points, South will be tempted to pass and be reluctant to choose any rebid. It's a poser after 1. If North does take a chance and rebid 2NT, South will happily bid 3NT--but I have no fault to find with anyone who does otherwise.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

Will West open? It would be automatic if that A were the A, but it's not so wise to use the Rule of 20 with this weak suit. Whether or not West opens 1, will North want to preempt with this weak heart suit? Some will--and then East can use a Negative Double , allowing E-W to find their spade game in spite of the preempt. All roads should lead to 4.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

West isn't strong enough to reverse, so will repeat the diamonds after East's 1 response. Then it will be gratifying to hear East use New Minor Forcing or rebid in hearts--either way, they'll find the heart game. Declarer mustn't panic at the 5-0 split. You just have to lose a spade, a club, and the 5th heart. Happily, the diamonds are so good no cross-ruffing is needed. Just knock out the Ace of Spades, let North ruff a diamond to correct the count, and score up 10 tricks. There will be some defensive errors to allow an overtrick on this one, I predict.

David Loeb Hand Analysis

PassPass4All pass

The Bidding: After West opens 1, North lacks the strength and suit quality to overcall 2. However, with 13 Support Points and support for the unbid suits, North Doubles for Takeout . East can redouble to show 10+ points and interest in penalizing North-South or can begin describing their shape. Redoubling has upside if West can penalize the minors. If North-South have a club fit, East is better off looking for a major suit fit. Redoubling will be quite awkward if South preempts in clubs. It is common to play a 1-level response as forcing over a takeout double. Responding 1 seems best. South's advance to 4 is preemptive. East has shown 6+ points. West doesn't have the strength to compete at the 4-level. East, with a game forcing hand, introduces their 2nd suit. West is happy to play 4. North, with 5 hearts, isn't eager to sacrifice.

The Play: When dummy tables, declarer expects to lose just the 2 black Aces. When South shows out on the first round of trumps, declarer must lose a heart. Declarer has 10 tricks.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

Poor South--everyone else has a shapely hand with some points and a long suit. North opens 1 and East probably passes this quacky hand, leaving South to bid a shabby 1NT. West bids 2 and North 3. This is likely to pass back to West: will he bid those hearts again? Stay tuned.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

When West opens a diamond and East bids 1NT, West can assume that East has something in clubs, justifying a raise to 2NT. With nine points, East should accept the invitation. There are tricks to burn, even after a heart lead (thanks to the 109 on the table).

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

In third seat, North opens 3--very obnoxious to East! East isn't quite strong enough to double with those clubs, so he bids 3--raised happily by West. The defense can cash their two aces. And that's all she wrote.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

West's 2NT opener makes it harder for East to show his stellar 5-5. Start by transferring to spades and then bid hearts at the four level: That should deliver the shape message. Will it always make? Only because the A is well-placed with West as declarer as an extra safeguard. Will the slam be bid? It's hard to say! Even if West cuebids the A, East has two club losers. In an unusual move, West might try Blackwood over 4; now he'll know they're missing the A, but his great spade fit on the side and the opening lead coming up to him, West can bid the heart slam. Kudos to anyone who does!

  2. 5+, choice of games

The Bidding: After West opens 2NT, West has a choice between transferring to spades and then bidding 4 to offer a choice of major suit game, or transferring to hearts and then bidding 3 to show 5-5 in the majors with slam interest. East has just 7 HCP, but their hand has nice trick taking potential. One of Bob Hamman's Rules was don't play me for a perfect hand; I never have it. With just 7 HCP and no Aces, offering a choice of game seems best. West prefers the heart game.

The Play: Declarer has 11 quick winners. A lobbing finesse towards the King provides declarer's 12th trick with South holding the Ace.

South opens 2NT, North will transfer to hearts and then pass, understandably. Draw trump and go to work on the spades to eliminate losers and enjoy 10 tricks. Bid it? No dice...

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

East opens 1, South doubles, and West raises diamonds--and raises again if need be. N-S must be careful not to push too hard vulnerable when the opponents show no signs of wanting to bid game.

  1. preemptive

The Bidding: In his "1-Of-A-Minor Opening" article, Larry Cohen discusses how opening styles vary with 4-4 in the minors. However, with 1-4-4-4 distribution, East opens 1 to prepare a rebid over a potential 1 response. South is a bit light for a takeout double. West's 8 Support Points argue for a simple raise. West's Losing Trick Count of 8 is comparable to an invitational hand. It is common to play Inverted Minors . In their MixedRaiseMinorWeinsteinWolkowitz article, Steve Weinstein and Dan Wolkowitz advise "the preemptive raise is its weak point. We believe a Mixed Raise is superior to the preemptive raise in most situations." Some partnerships replace the 3 preempt with a Mixed Raise. Some use an artificial bid to show a Mixed Raise. If a Mixed Raise isn't available, West is likely to preempt a heavy 3.

At table where West responds with a 3 Mixed Raise, North may be reluctant to venture the 3-level. If North-South compete at the 3-level, East is positioned to compete to 4. If North-South compete to the 4-level, East can double for penalty.

At tables where West responds with a 3 preemptive raise, there is more upside and less risk for North to act. Doubling is flexible, bringing all the side suits into play and allowing 3 to be penalized. The downside of doubling is the partnership may play in a 3-3 or 4-3 heart fit when a spade fit is available. North's spade texture is reasonable for a 3 overcall. Support points are not considered for an overcall. So North is too light to bid 3. Doubling seems best. East isn't eager to defend 3. So East may compete to 4 in hopes of obstructing an advance to spades. If so, South makes a Responsive Double to show values and more than one place to play. North prefers 4. If East passes over the double of 3, South can cue bid to force to game or bid a major at the 3-level. South's 12 Support Points are inflated by the Jack-doubleton. The Jack and the doubleton are not likely to be of value. With no Aces, advancing to the 3-level seems best. Since South's bid may not end the auction, South advances to 3 to allow a 4 bid if necessary. South's 3 bid is likely to end the auction.

The Play in 3: Declarer has 3 quick losers in the black suits. Declarer has the rest of the tricks: 2 ruffs + 2 + 6.

The Play in 3: Declarer has a diamond loser and 3 potential heart losers. To avoid the 3rd heart loser, declarer needs the Ace-King on side or the Jack onside. There is also the risk of a defensive heart ruff. Here, the defense must cash their winners and navigate a heart ruff to hold declarer to 9 tricks.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

It's rare that 25 HCP will produce 11 or 12 tricks, but that's the case when the K is in the slot so there are two running five card suits. A heart lead would do no harm if diamonds are trump, but East is bound to lead the K against the spade contract: try to make six if the diamond is off-side. Just enjoy the overtricks.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

West should use the Rule of 20 and open 1. North will bid 3 and East 3 (showing a decent raise). Now South should bid 5: who wants to defend, even vulnerable? Will West bid 5? This is tough to decide--just who's sacrificing, anyway?

North opens 1 and East bids 1NT. West is unlikely to bid Stayman, but if he does, the 4-4 Spade fit plays well. Still, clubs break well and 1NT survives the minor suits.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

East opens 1, doubled by South. Even if West makes a weak jump raise, North won't be deterred: He should trust his partner and go slamming in spades. Nice of trump to break, but life means taking chances, and the preempt by West makes it more likely East has the spade and club honors.

South's 1 is overcalled 3, possibly ending the auction. East daren't bid 3NT and bidding a minor suit game when the opponents have opened is mighty optimistic.

North opens 1. What will South bid? 2 on this bad suit seems wrong if any other tools are available. This is no hand for Jacoby.. If they play 2/1, South can bid 1NT now and follow it with 4: game points but no ruffing value would be the message.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

South opens 1NT. Will North bid Stayman with only seven HCP? I wouldn't. Whichever major West chooses, second hand low for North will pay off.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

East opens 1, overcalled by 1 in South. West can bid 2 to show a limit raise in diamonds. Even with all those hearts, North is unlikely to act. East rebids 2NT and now South doubles to show his black suit support and promising hand. That should prod North into raising hearts. Will it end there? Depends on who is sitting West.
