  1. 3 or 3

This week starts off with a deal that is hard to predict an outcome. When a partnership has a known 9-card major suit fit particularly a 6-3 fit and half the high card points in the deck (evenly distributed) there always seems to be the the view (using the Law of Total Tricks or not) to compete to the 9-trick level. In this deal each side has a 6-3 major suit fit and about half the points (19 vs 21 hcp) ... so who knows what is right. Bridge Winners can see the bidding footnotes on: http://thecommongame.com

Bidding: In the auction presented here North opens 1, East overcalls 1 and South raises to 2. West with one of the best hands at the table cannot just raise to 2 so must either bid 3 (invitational), as in the auction here, or cuebid 3 as a limit raise in spades. I suspect a raise to 3 will be passes out at 3 ... North would really like to compete over 3 but if all South can do is raise to 2, North has already bid his full values and 4 looks impossible. Move the Q to clubs and give North AQJ8 of clubs and a singleton 7 and North should compete to 4.

... on the other hand, if West cuebids 3, I suspect East will bid 4.

Play: If the bidding of this hand is squirrelly, the play could be even more so. If South leads the K from KQ96 North/South should take 3 club tricks and if declarer (East) drops the Q East/West should make 4. But if South leads a small heart as in the play here, East could rise with the A and find the Q and make 6. So the play depending on the opening lead and finding the Q could be down 1 to make 6.

  1. strong & forcing
  2. game forcing
  3. natural
  4. control bid

This deal maybe harder to bid than I show here ... but here goes. If North opens this bidding 1 or even 2NT, I don't think North/South can reach 6. But by opening the bidding 2 and bidding spades then in a game forcing auction rebidding clubs getting to 6 stands a chance. Bridge Winners can see the bidding footnotes on: http://thecommongame.com

Bidding: North opens the bidding 2 strong and forcing and South responds 2 as game forcing. North bids 2 and South 3. So with a spade fit in a game forcing auction North bids 4 which can only bid some kind of a slam try. South's bid of 5 is intended as an encouraging bid showing something in clubs, otherwise, South would have returned to spades or bid another suit showing help in that suit. North bids 6.

  1. Takeout Double

I am not certain about the bidding on this deal. Bridge Winners can see the bidding footnotes on: http://thecommongame.com

Bidding: West deals and opens the bidding 1, what will North do? Many holding Q7632 will Pass, but lets get North into the bidding with 2. East passes and South raises 3. West makes a Takeout Double of 3 and while it is possible for East to sit for 3x, lets get East to bid 4. West with 15 high card points and 20 support points might consider 5 but West really had to make East get into the auction and only bid 4.

All pass   
  1. preemptive
  2. clubs & spade support

When preempt, especially at the 4-level, it is often a roll of the dice to figure out the right contract. So when East preempts 4 South with 17 high card points and 6 losers has to decide whether it is right to bid 4 or double first. But if South just bids 4, I think North owes him a bid ... just me. Bridge Winners can see the bidding footnotes on: http://thecommongame.com

Bidding: East preempts the bidding 4 and South with 17 hcp and 6 losers decides to bid 4 ... with just a little more maybe 19 hcp I think it would be right for South to double first. North with 12 support points for spades bids 5 ... 5 should not just be looking for a place to play but an ongoing bid and should show a good (twice biddable club suit) and imply that if South needs to run to 5 all will be ok. Some may have South rebidding 5. I know People are going to say I bid this deal double dummy LOL but my computer analysis says South, in this auction, will now bid 6.

  2. with the bid of 2 converts to big hand

This is a funky deal ... Bridge Winners can see the bidding footnotes on: http://thecommongame.com

Bidding: West opens the bidding 1 and North with a monster hand doubles, beginning the process of showing a huge hand. East responds 2 and South passes. North reopens the bidding 2 and East makes a Law of Total Tricks bid of 3 and again South passes. North makes one more valiant effort doubling 3 and South passes. Maybe some will bid clubs with South's hand
