  1. Splinter (jump Reverse )

This week starts off with a deal that exemplifies modern bridge. If the auction goes 1 - 1 then opener's rebid of 2 is not strong enough, a rebid 3 would be invitational 15-18 high card points and could be passed (missing game) and a rebid of 4 could be seen as a closeout or even preemptive taking away the opponent's space to compete. Opener must find a way to show a heart fit and make the auction forcing. Bridge Winners can see the bidding footnotes on: http://thecommongame.com

Bidding: In the auction here after East opens 1 and West bids 1 East makes a Jump Reverse Splinter bid of 3 showing 4-card support for hearts, game going values (because the 3 bid forces 4) and shortness in spades. West, now with a perfect picture of East hand, knows that his values in spades KQ10x are wasted values because partner has shortness limiting the losses in spades. West will be lucky in declarer play to make good use of the KQ10 and thus bids 4.

Made 5 — NS −450

Play: The opening lead can argued, but it would not be unusual for North to lead his A to make sure he wins his spade trick and to get a look at the dummy. In which case true to form North/South have the right to win A and the A.

It is possible that some might choose to lead the 5 (or a trump) and not away from either the A or A in which case the lead from North can hold the play to making 4. Bridge Winners can see the trick by trick play on: http://thecommongame.com

So what do you do with half the points in the deck. It may not be common for you and your partner combined to hold exactly half the points in the deck, but it is not that uncommon for high card points to be about 20 vs 20. So with points equal fits and suit rank should rule. Bridge Winners can see the bidding footnotes on: http://thecommongame.com

Bidding: Most will open South's hand 2 and some with North's hand might compete to 3, but this can't be right. North knows that when South opens 2 North with 10 hcp that the points are somewhat evenly divided and holding the A, A and 5 hearts to the Q76xx North should make East/West compete to the 3-level. By bidding 3 North is preempting E/W getting into the auction and this is the wrong deal to preempt E/W. Holding spades the highest ranking suit E/W will need to bid to the 3-level vulnerable. North should pass 2 and wait to see if E/W get into trouble.

Play: West natural lead is the J and with East switching to a diamond the only thing that can go wrong is if E/W lead a club. Bridge Winners can see the trick by trick play on: http://thecommongame.com

Fred Ferguson Hand Analysis

 1NT1Pass22
Pass23Pass34
Pass3NTAll pass 
  1. 15-17 high card points
  2. Stayman
  3. no 4-card major
  4. Smolen Transfer

We have this joke we play at the table when someone says "this could make 3NT or 4 or in case of this deal 6" we will say no it will not make 6 and when they say why, we say because you can't bid 6. Bridge Winners can see the bidding footnotes on: http://thecommongame.com

Bidding: North deals and with 17 hcp, 6 losers and a balanced hand opens the bidding 1NT. After 1NT getting to 6 seems impossible. Assuming East/West vulnerable stay out of the auction, South with game values of 10 hcp and 5/4 in the majors first bids 2 Stayman and after Norths response of 2, jumps to 3 as natural or as in the auction here 3 as Smolen Transfer convention showing 4 spades and 5 hearts. After 3 natural or 3 Smolen most with North's hand will bid 3NT denying 3 hearts. The only way to reach 6 on this deal is for is if South takes some action over 3NT (4 would be Gerber and 4NT would be Quantitative notrump bids ) such as 4 which should be a control bid for diamonds. But after 4 or some such bid, reaching 6NT is more likely than 6. The auction in this deal is a shame because 3NT is an inferior contract. For partnerships that reach 4, 4 or 6 will score much better than in notrump.

Play: The play here is some what a guess, but it doesn't seem to make much difference, as long as East ducks covering the 10 finesse. Bridge Winners can see the trick by trick play on: http://thecommongame.com

Fred Ferguson Hand Analysis
WestNorthEastSouth
1Pass1Pass
1NT1Pass32Pass
4All pass  
  1. 12-14 high card points balanced
  2. invitational

This is a classic case of bidding out your hand. Bridge Winners can see the bidding footnotes on: http://thecommongame.com

Bidding: West opens the bidding 1 and East responds 1 (assuming North/South remain silent) West rebids 1NT defining a 12-14 hcp balanced hand. If East just rebids 2 it will look like a retreat from notrump and West will pass 2. East must bid out his shape and values by rebidding 3 in which case West, on a maximum with A102 should be willing to bid 4.
