 3PassPass
DblPass3NTAll pass

With two side suits well controlled, the North hand isn't a perfect for a preempt, but first seat, non vulnerable isn't the time to wait for a perfect hand. so 3 will be a normal bid at many tables. With three s, South might consider raising as a "blocking" bid, but on the actual hand passing looks best. West will surely not pass 3 out and some will double, while others bid 3. Whatever West decides, East has a normal 3NT bid. 3NT is likely to be too high for E/W with everything sitting wrong. South will likely lead a top and East does best to duck, and then duck the 10. Note that North should not overtake the 2nd , since they don't have the 9. What should South play at trick three? In this situation, North should give suit preference on the 2nd trick (after giving attitude at the first trick) by playing the 2. This will make it easy for South to switch to a low , even if declarer has pitched two s from dummy. At this point, declarer is in a lot of trouble and will be lucky to end up off only one. If South errs and leads a at trick three, declarer can win the 9, and take a finesse. If North now leads a high , declarer might end up with nine tricks if they have kept enough s in dummy, as they can win four tricks, one , one and can set up a third trick. However, this takes several defensive errors, and some good choices by declarer both in holding up twice in s, and in choosing their dummy discards. It will be rare for declarer to make and going -50 might not be a terrible result for E/W. If North passes originally and later overcalls 2, E/W might be end up playing 3 or 3 making. Any plus score at all in the E/W direction should be well above average.

  1. four s, five , game forcing (Smolen )
  2. Two keycards no queen of trump

West has a good enough hand to invite a slam opposite a strong NT opening and East has a good hand despite the minimal HCP, but many, if not most pairs will stop in game. It might be just as well, as making slam is not straightforward, particularly on a lead. Whether West tries for slam or not, the first priority for West is finding out if E/W have a major suit fit. The most common way to bid with 54 in the majors after a 1NT is a convention known as Smolen. Playing this convention, West starts with Stayman. If East responds in a major, then West knows there is a fit there, but if East responds 2, then West bids their four card major at the three level, promising a five card suit in the other major. Note that it is useful to have a different way to show a 5-5 suit in the majors, so that this sequence shows specifically 5-4 in the majors. This allows West to bid 4 suggesting slam interest with a cue bid in s, rather than showing extra length.

Whether E/W are playing 4, or 6, many matchpoints will depend on the opening lead and how declarer continues. If South leads a , declarer will have a particularly hard time making 12 tricks, and will need to not only guess the Queen, but make the right play in s as well. Declarer certainly has some play for 12 tricks on any lead and in theory can make all 13, though I don't think that will happen often. Let's say South leads a . Against weaker defenders, declarer will know that ruffs will be safe until North plays the Jack, so might just decide to play North for the Queen and start with two rounds of s and a ruff. (Of course, a good defender in the North hand should play the Jack on the 2nd round, an example of playing the "card you're known to have" as soon as possible). Then declarer can play a to the 9, ruff another with the Jack, pull the last two rounds of trump ending in the East hand, then take the double finesse and lose only the Queen. To make 13 tricks, declarer will need to ruff a rather than taking either of the finesses, pull trump without losing to North's Queen, and either ruff out the suit, or catch North in a minor suit squeeze. Suffice it to say that just making 12 tricks should be above average and declarer should be very happy to just make their contract if they are in 6.

E/W contracts might include s, x, x or NT. North has a normal 1 opening, and East has an also normal looking double, though some might choose to overcall 1 because of not having a four card suit, but the distribution and hand strength will make this an easy double for most. From a pure point count standpoint, West is too strong to just bid 1 which typically shows less than 8 HCP. However, this hand is not really strong enough for a jump to 2 which usually will include a five card suit. The West hand is 4333, has a terrible four card suit, and a lot of queens and jacks. With a little more strength, West could cue bid 2, but again, this hand is too weak for that. The only bids I would consider with the West hand are 1 and 1NT. Both of those bids are likely to get passed out. If West bids 1, North will not be anxious to bid again, as E/W have bid their second best suit. If South comes back in with a questionable reopening double, it might not work out well for E/W as East will sure compete again with a double or a 2 bid, and now E/W might end up in 2, 2 or 2NT all of which are better contracts for E/W than s.

The best contract for E/W will be in NT which will easily make 8 tricks, whether North leads a , setting up a trick for declarer there, or not. With the Ace onside, where declarer will expect it to be, there are no issues with eight tricks, and some might even make nine tricks, if North lets declarer get two black tricks, though this looks unlikely. A contract has two losers in each black suit and a trump to lose. If declarer is careful in a contract to pull two rounds of trump and then ruff the 4th round of s, then a contract will make nine tricks. A contract, where E/W have a good chance to play, will be the trickiest contract. Perfect defense can in theory hold declarer to seven tricks, but in practice, the defense is likely to lead s, allowing declarer to lose only three trump tricks and two tricks. So, +110 will be a common score for E/W and +120 for playing in 1NT should score very well.

DblAll pass  
  1. 4+ , game forcing, if shortness, usually 16+ (Jacoby)
  2. 2 keycards (DOPI)

The bidding might get competitive at a high level on this hand. With 2.5 quicktricks on defense and all of their honors in their long suits, the West hand would be automatic opening bid for me, but some will certainly pass it. If West does pass originally, E/W are still likely to end up bidding 4 even if South interferes at a high level in s, but will be not be investigating slam as East will know that West does not have three Aces. N/S may end up buying the hand in 5 doubled in that situation. Assuming that West does open 1, however, the bidding will get interesting. East has a choice whether to bid 4 as a "splinter" bid, or 2NT showing a game-forcing four card or longer raise. Most experts play that a 4 bid, because it takes up so much space, shows a very narrow point count range, often 13-15. The purpose of a high level Splinter bid is to allow partner to evaluate slam chances when holding strength that would not normally suggest slam. If you bid 4 on any strength hand, you will not know what to do when partner signs off in 4. So, if you are playing 4 shows 13-15, you might be wondering why the bidding doesn't show East making that bid. On this particular hand, the East hand is better than the point count indicates, as slam will have play opposite just three aces, even if those aces include the Ace. It's a close call, as West is likely to push for slam over 4 on any hand where slam is better than 50%, but I would choose 2NT.

Despite the vulnerability and the opponents strong bidding, South should bid 3 over 2NT, showing s and a minor. West will have a pretty good idea which minor South shows and should bid 4 to help East evaluate how high to compete. With AJxx in s, North can make a free bid of 4, and East will forge on with Blackwood, knowing that the E/W hands should fit well. South should continue to make things difficult with a 5 bid. Most expert pairs play a convention known as DOPI when the opponents interfere over a Blackwood bid. Under this convention, double shows zero keycards, pass shows one and bidding the next step up shows two, so here, West should bid 5. When this is passed around to South, they will practically know the entire hand. E/W are clearly off two Aces, so North is very likely to hold the Ace. Given the opponents pushing towards slam, they are likely to hold all the rest of the HCP, so South can see that the defense will have one trick and one trick, but are unlikely to have any other tricks. South can also see that a contract will lose two black suit tricks and likely one trick, so that a 6 sacrifice is worth it. Any South player who lets E/W play in 4 or 5 will not score well, as E/W do indeed have only two losers, and N/S have the expected three losers.
