3Pass3All pass

I admit that if I were holding the E/W cards, I would get too high on this hand, and I expect that to happen at many tables. A couple of weeks ago, I suggested opening 1NT on an 18 HCP hand that had 4333 distribution and a lot of queens and jacks. On this hand, the East is an example of the opposite principle. With a great five card suit, and a hand full of Aces and Kings, the East hand looks too good to open 1NT, despite holding 17 HCP. As it happens, on the actual hand, opening 1NT will work out better, as West will get their side to the last making contract, 2 either by using Stayman or by transferring. If East opens 1 instead, either West will pass and North will also pass, or North will compete and N/S will get to a making NT contract, or West will bid 1 and E/W will end up too high. All of these results are worse for E/W than making 2, of course. If East does open 1, should West bid? With both majors and poor support, it's usually right to be a little pushy in bidding over 1, particularly non-vulnerable. However, with only 3 HCP, passing is certainly not the worst bid ever.

Assuming West does bid 1 and East jumps to 2NT, what should West do now? Some pairs will be playing something known as Wolff Sign-off and West can sign off in 3. Even if not playing that, though, West should attempt to get to a major suit fit, as their hand is likely to be almost useless in a NT contract. West can bid 3 and when East shows three card support, East can quickly pass. E/W will go down one in 3 and 1 but both contracts will be better than 2NT which will go down at least two and possibly three tricks. If N/S declare a NT contract, eight tricks are easy, and nine tricks will be made if the defense doesn't work on the suit off the get go.

At favorable vulnerability, many will open the East hand 4, though some will certainly open 3 as well. Whichever opening bid East chooses, the next two players will pass and North will double. If East's opening bid was 4, I think South should pass the double. South is far from confident that the contract can be beaten, although at this vulnerability, North should have a pretty good hand. The general principle is, though, that the higher the level at which your partner is making a Negative Double , the more often you should choose to pass if you don't have nice distribution of your own. Partner is much more likely to have a good hand with less than perfect takeout double distribution when they have to double a high level contract at their first chance to bid. South knows that their hand is likely worth zero tricks on defense, but can hope that North has enough defense on their own to beat the contract, and passing looks better than trying to play in a minor suit contract at the five level. If East has only opened 3, then it's a different situation for South. Passing is more dangerous, as North now needs one more trick on defense, plus North has doubled a contract one level lower, so they will, on average have a less strong hand. Unfortunately for South, their will be no way to get North to pick a minor over a double of a 3 opening bid. South will do better to choose 4 as this will likely end the bidding. 4 is likely to get doubled by West and will end up down at least one. In a contract, South is likely to lead a black suit, and the defense should end up with four tricks. If South leads a , declarer might make 10 tricks, although careful defensive play can still prevent declarer from getting a ruff. Any positive E/W result on this board should be good for them.

Although 6 is a decent contract, E/W will have a hard time getting there, whether North bids or not and I expect most to settle in 3NT. Even at favorable vulnerability, the South is so terrible, that opening 2 isn't really an option. Some will certainly do it anyway, in an attempt to be maximally destructive, but it's not a bid I would recommend. If West is allowed to open 1, North has a much better hand for bidding than South does. At any other vulnerability, North should eye their poor suit quality and pass, but with a 6-5 hand and favorable vulnerability, North can bid 2NT, showing the two lowest unbid suits (i.e. s and s.) Several bidding approaches are popular when the opponents have shown a two suited hand with both suits known. One approach is to use cue bids of the known suits to show good hands in partner's suit or in the Fourth Suit , allowing you to bid the fourth suit naturally and non-forcing. Under that agreement, East's 3 bid would show a good hand for s on the bidding shown. Another approach is to cue bid the suit you have stopped, looking for NT. In that case, East's 3 bid would promise a stopper here. Either approach can work, and this is something worth discussing with your regular partners. East could also double here, showing a desire to penalize at least one of the opponents suits. However, East can be pretty confident that N/S are headed to a contract and not a contract, and East has too good a hand for s and for NT to want to defend at this vulnerability.

With the Ace onside, and the suit coming in for no losers, 6 will make, but most of the matchpoints will be decided by how many tricks declarer makes in NT. 11 tricks looks likely, but if North leads a , declarer might run all of their tricks before leading a , and this will set up tricks for South, holding declarer to 10 tricks. Any E/W pair who defend 3 can, theoretically set it by four tricks, and will need to do so to have a good score.

North has a powerful two suited hand, and will not have an easy way to bid it. North really wants to be able to use "Exclusion Blackwood" to ask for keycards excluding the suit, but most pairs will not have a way to do this unless South is able to raise s at some point. One possibility is to open 2 but what will North's plan be after that? Let's say South bids 2 waiting. North can jump to 3, setting trump, but a 4 bid by South over that doesn't help North. A 4 bid by South would mean North can now ask for keycards, knowing South doesn't have a high honor, but this is the only good possibility, and North has hidden the suit, which might be the best place to play.

Alternately, North can open 1. This isn't particularly dangerous, as North's distribution and HCP make it virtually impossible that this will pass out. Furthermore E/W cannot preempt high enough to make North uncomfortable about bidding again. South is almost, but not quite good enough to force game and should start with 1NT. North can now jump shift to 3. At first it looks like South has a comfortable 3NT rebid. However, the South hand is really too good for that over North's jump shift. With a maximum, good minor suit honors, a possible source of tricks, and useful major suit cards, South can make a natural 4NT rebid. If you play that 4NT is keycard asking for the last bid suit, then you will be really stuck for a bid with a hand like South has here. If South were to choose 3NT, would a 5 bid by North be Exclusion Blackwood for s? It's an interesting, but mostly academic question, as few pairs will be sophisticated enough to make that bid.

So, it looks like in almost all circumstances, North will just be forced to jump to slam at some point, hoping that South has one of the Aces that North needs, or perhaps that the defense leads s and South can provide a trick there. All is well on the actual hand as South not only has the Ace, but also a useful Jack. If East leads the Ace, this will not work out well for E/W as declarer will now have an easy time making all 13 tricks. +1460 should be a top score for N/S, and top E/W results will come when North is too conservative and only bids game.
