If North were to follow some "rule" about bidding, 3 as a third round bid might be considered, even made. the problem is that South might pass!

AKQJx deserves to be treated as a six card suit for purposes of such rules! By bidding first a major, then a minor, then rebidding the major, extra strength is not just implied, but assured, and the bid is almost always made on a six card major suit. Well, back to treating AKQJx as being as good as a six-bagger! North does have a five-loser hand, of sorts, but that evaluation is based on a fit, which does not necessarily exist. So the 3 bid is on the aggressive side.

South might be tempted, for that A is a really, really good card, but that's the only favorable aspect of the South hand on this auction

Unless East leads a silly singleton club, there seems no reason for declarer to play for the actual club position, instead playing for "Eight ever, nine never." Still, the 3-3 spade division will save declarer's bacon.

Considering the precariousness of the contract, was the 3 bid justified? Of course! South could have had a much better hand, and game might well have been missed had North meekly passed. Or even had the EW clubs been distributed differently. Clubs 2-2 is about a 52% chance (40% for 2-2, 12% for singleton queen either way).

There have been better contracts. Declarer's problem is all of those losing hearts. The defense has several avenues available to defeat 2, but at some point that will require leading trumps at least once, leaving the A the task of ruffing the fourth heart, at the expense of a trump trick to the defense.

One reason for seeking more length in the selected trump suit.

  1. Singleton.

Many partnerships play that ANY three-level bid after an inverted minor raise shows a singleton. This NS pair does play with that understanding, and 3 by East shows a lack of desire to play 3NT as well as some useful value in hearts. Whether it is a control or not is debatable, but it might be. West might well not bid 4, Minorwood, but just to see what is happening, 3 can act as a waiting bid. East hears West describing a promising unbalanced hand and should show the club ace rather than an unimaginative and misdirected 3NT. Yes, that is a club stopper, but three aces are much more offensive in aspect than might be inferred from a 3NT bid. 4 is aggressive, and three aces deserve to be bid aggressively/descriptively.

4 is Minorwood, and three keycards/aces make this hand a beautiful thing.

A balancing notrump does not, of course, promise the values for an opening 1NT bid, but many play that it may contain enough values. Many play the bid shows 11-14, others 11-16, and still others a higher range the higher in rank the opening bid. That is to say, that 1 P P 1NT can or should be stronger than 1 P P 1NT.

But it need not be. What else would West bid? And for East's part, even in the unlikely event that partner has 16 HCP, is that enough to invite game? What if West has 11? Passing seems normal.

Indeed, the hand does make 3NT by West, but primarily because the spade spots are magical, providing two full stoppers, while clubs split 3-2 and the diamond suit is not only not a danger, but cannot be led by the defense without yielding a trick. The diamond suit is "frozen."

If North leads a spade, West wins, smiling as the T falls from South, and then leads out four rounds of clubs, happily splitting 3-3. Look what happens to North on the fourth club! Squeezed! Discarding a heart won't do at all, and a diamond discard kills the diamond communication between defenders, so that only one diamond can be taken against the notrump contract.

That leaves a spade discard, which could not be worse for the defense -- there go tricks! If Declarer next plays a spade, North may try to avoid giving away a red suit trick by cashing and exiting spades, but then declarer simply runs the Curse of Scotland (9) and again there are nine tricks.

Declarers who play well enough to achieve that result are entitled to their tie for top.

All right, then. It has come to be accepted practice among many tournament players that a three-level double jump shift over a minor suit opening bid shows a game-forcing raise of the minor suit with a singleton or void in the double-jump shift suit.

Fine! Usually opener bids 3NT with a good stop in the Splinter suit, or something else looks useful. Here, however, South cannot stand 3NT, his clubs are awful, and the hand is minimum. Now what?

To say South's hand is minimum is accurate to a degree, but for what there is, it is rather perfect, holding five controls in the suits that matter (A=2, K=1).

If you play Minorwood, does 4 by opener that meaning? If not, why not? 3 was a Game Force , correct? Then South has the following options: (1) 5, please stop bidding (2) 4 Minorwood (3/4) 4 and 4 are ostensibly control bids toward slam (5) 4 is an odd duck, perhaps a control bid, but how can you not have a diamond or heart control?

An additional problem is that South's hand is not particularly suited for asking for key cards, lacking anything in hearts except the ace.

I like 4 as a control-showing bid, which on this hand allows North to deny either a heart control or a spade void. 5 should end the auction,

Unless the opening lead is the K, how many players will make what I would consider to be the technically correct play of the A without leading an honor?? Unless West is dealt specifically the T9, which is just one possible distribution of the suit, the heart suit can never be played for zero losers except by playing the ace first, which caters to two possible distributions. . .
