Most of the matchpoints will rest on whether E/W end up in 3NT or 4. Some Norths might open a light 1, some will overcall 1 despite the poor suit quality and some will just pass throughout. No matter what North does, East should be able to show a five card suit. West might opt for 3NT on their own, having no sign of a ruffing value, or East might offer a choice of games, and West will again settle for 3NT. If East knows that their side has a fit, they might bid 4 themselves, having no stopper help in two suits.

This hand shows one of the other advantages of playing in a major suit, even when there is no ruffing available in the hand with short trump, and all suits are well stopped. In 4, declarer will have no issues with pulling trump, and then playing for overtricks by finessing for the Queen. Despite both honors being offside, ten tricks will easily come home. In a NT contract, North might not lead s if they have bid the suit and not been raised, but let's assume that North does. Declarer has nine tricks available, but at matchpoints, it will be obvious that a contract will make ten tricks and 11 if the Queen is onside. If declarer takes an early finesse, they will find themselves with only nine tricks. A NT contract suffers from not having sufficient control of the suit to set up the slow tricks. It looks like declarer can only make 10 tricks by playing for 3-3 s, which is a lower percent chance than the Queen onside if North has never bid. If North has bid, this might be the higher percentage play, particularly if North opened. Declarer could start by running the suit, which would put some pressure on North for discarding, but it would also force an awkward second discard from the West hand. It looks to me like declarer will struggle to go +430 rather than +400 in a NT contract, but will win most of the matchpoints if they do.

E/W could end up in 1NT declared by either side, or 2 or 2, depending on their particular agreements and bidding choices. If the West hand were weaker, or they held a three card suit, opening 1 might be a popular choice, but most experts will eschew opening a four card major in third or fourth seat when they have full opening values. East has a normal 1 bid, though their suit is pretty tepid If E/W have the agreement that a 1 bid shows an unbalanced hand, then West will either raise on their three card suit, or bid 1NT. Both of those will get passed, as East has better than a minimum, but not a good enough hand to invite. If West is instead able to bid 1, then East has the choice of making a three card raise of their own or bidding 1NT. Note that the East hand is much better as a three card raise of s than the West hand is in s. Why is this the case? The West hand holds high values and a slow ruffing value in s, which does not bode well for being able to pull trump and get a ruff or two. East, on the other hand, already knows that their partner has some length, which not only means that their honors are useful, but also that quick ruffs might be available, and that the ruffs will be with low s and not with honors. If a West 1 bid promises at least 4-4 in s and s, then I actually like a 2 bid from the East hand. Certainly if West has shortness in either s or s, then that suit will not be well stopped in NT, and a contract is likely to play better. If West has bid 1 on a poor suit, and a balanced hand then a NT contract will usually be better, but West should prefer to bid 1NT if that is their hand type.

It's not clear how any of the E/W contracts will fare. If West declares NT, North is likely to lead a , and South should put in the 10 and switch to the Queen. After that start, declarer may need to guess the Queen just to scramble home seven tricks. If they finesse s into the safe hand, to keep North from leading another , they might likely find that there just aren't seven tricks to be had. If East declares NT, South won't have an obvious lead. If they choose to lead s, the 10 is the best card to lead, and North might duck this, or win and switch to a red suit. The defense will certainly not be obvious. A contract will be the most difficult for declarer, but a contract will play very well, especially as declarer will be overruffing the opponents in all three side suits. Top E/W scores should go to those who play in s and lose only four side suit tricks.

E/W might get in trouble on this hand, if South starts with a 2 bid. Some South players will pass originally, as they hold a four card major. It is indeed the case on this hand that N/S hold a much better fit than s and in fact, can make nine tricks in a contract. However, the loss of the preemptive value of a 2 bid might hurt N/S. Despite holding a double stopper and 16 HCP, West doesn't have the greatest 2NT bid ever. With no five card suit, and a tepid four card suit, there is no obvious source of tricks. Also, with the hand so concentrated in quick tricks, a NT contract might have a lot of top tricks, but not many total tricks. For example, give East all three missing Kings and how many tricks do you think you will take? Nevertheless, the West hand does look too good to pass, and 2NT seems the best bid, albeit with some trepidation. At matchpoints, North should see that E/W are likely to struggle in any contract, and at this vulnerability and form of scoring, it is time to start doubling. Most E/W pairs will not have discussed how to deal with a penalty double of 2NT, so East might be scrambling for a bid. The spot cards in s suggest that it is likely the best landing spot, unless West has only two s and a five card suit. East will find West with a good fit, but North can continue with their aggressive bidding and double again. 3 will be down two, so even if North decides not to double again, +200 will be a good score for N/S.

If South passes originally, West will open 1NT, and this might get passed out. More likely, this will lead to South coming back in with their suit, and putting North in a quandary. N/S might end up in 2, but for sure, the final result will not be +200 or +500 for N/S from defending or doubling a high level contract. If N/S let E/W play 1NT, North will need to lead a before giving up their entries, or declarer might be able to scramble home seven tricks. Six tricks are easy for declarer, in any case, and -100 looks like it will be well above average for E/W.

  1. Revolving game try (see analysis)
  2. Would accept help suit game try in s

N/S do not have a clear route to 4, and at matchpoints might even prefer not to be in game looking at their two hands. Everything is lying perfectly, though, and a contract will easily make 11 tricks. With two and a half quick tricks and a good five card suit, it's not unreasonable to open the West hand. The minor suit distribution is unfortunate, and I would never open 1 instead of 1, even if my agreements allowed it. The hand would be better if the King were in the suit, and I expect most to just pass. If West does open 1, North can overcall 1 and East will bid 1. The opponents bidding, and in particular the from East might be enough to convince North not to try for game. Certainly, from a pure HCP standpoint, North does not have the values to look for game, even when they know they have a nine card fit. At matchpoints, passing 2 wouldn't be the worst bid in the world. At IMPS, it would be clear to try for the vulnerable game bonus, as game will have good play opposite as little as the two major suit Kings in the South hand.

Certainly North would like South to upgrade honors in s, and Aces in other suits, so a game try in s looks best. One approach that I like, and that a lot of experts I know use, is something known as "revolving game tries", usually as part of a "two-way game try" structure. An example of this is shown in the bidding diagram. A "revolving" game try is one in which North asks which suits South would accept a help suit game try in, starting with the lowest suit. This allows North to give out a minimum of information about their hand while making a game try. The "revolving" part of the game try comes if South doesn't bid the suit North is interested in, but also doesn't bypass it, as North then bids a suit they want help in. You might be wondering at the actual way the revolving game try is implemented in the bidding diagram. This is because of the broader concept of "two way" game tries. Under this idea, the cheapest bid over a two level major suit raise starts the revolving game try, and South uses 2NT to show they would accept in s, when s is trump. If North instead bids 2NT, 3 or 3 over 2, this would show a short suit game try in s, s and s respectively (2NT again substituting as a bid to say something about s.) Thus, North can make two types of game tries. Note that these game tries are not particularly standard, and typically only apply when North has suggested a five card suit, either by opening, responding over interference or overcalling, but they are worth considering if you are an advancing pair.

With everything sitting right, 11 tricks are easy, and N/S will need to be in game to get a top score.
