All pass   

This hand has trouble written all over it for N/S. Some Easts will open the hand, and if they do, E/W might be playing 2 either double or undoubled, or N/S might still end up in 2. If East passes, South has extra values, but isn't strong enough to force to game, and should rebid 2 over 1NT, while cringing at the quality of the suit. North has no real options other than to pass, and will be hoping that South has good trump (alas), as it's likely that s will need to be ruffed with the trump honors in the North hand. Should East pass out 2 or double? At this vulnerability, it isn't so clear. If N/S have a misfit, then West will have a lot of s and is likely to pass the double. If N/S have a nine card or longer fit, then E/W should have a good fit in one of the minors. The danger is that N/S have an eight card fit, and E/W therefore don't have a good minor suit fit and can't defend 2. On the actual hand, if East doubles, West will, indeed, pass.

Whether doubled, or not, 2 will be difficult contract for declarer to make. West has no obvious lead, but with natural trump tricks, should lead a than their singleton . Being forced to ruff s is more likely to help declarer manage the poor trump break than to help the defense. Let's say that West does lead a . In theory, declarer can play the Ace, ruff a , ruff a and then lead the Queen. Whether West covers or not, declarer will be able to score either four trump tricks, and four side suit tricks, or five trump tricks and three side suit tricks. On a lead, decarer's prospects are a little better. The defense might end up with four trump tricks and the King, but nothing else if declarer guesses well. If West leads the trump Jack, declarer might deduce correctly that West would not lead the Jack from AJT, and will duck. At first this looks good for declarer, but if East switches to a , declarer will need to be careful to not get tapped out on the hand. All in all, it's not clear whether the defense or declarer will prevail the most often on this hand, but I expect that many declarers will lead a to the King early in the play, which will not work out well, so there will be more negative scores for N/S than positive ones. If 2 is being played doubled, the stakes will be especially high for both sides.

  1. Optional keycards for s
  2. Four keycards for s

It will take some sharp bidding by E/W to find the good slam. The bidding sequence shown illustrates some fairly advanced bidding concepts that are not used by all experts, so don't worry if it doesn't make sense, as the purpose is to illustrate one possible way to get to slam. For those interested, a full explanation of the bidding is included at the end. With a seven card suit, many will preempt with the South hand without thinking much about it. However, at this vulnerability, the South hand is a very poor preempt, especially with such a moth eaten suit. If you are a believer in Losing Trick Count and the Rule of 2/3/4, then the South hand has eight losers, which suggests, at this vulnerability, that it shouldn't even be opened 2. Second seat is also the worst seat for preempting, as you are just at likely to catch partner with a good hand as the opponents. Some Easts might open this hand, but this doesn't really change the math for South. As it happens, on the actual hand, 3 will survive, as E/W won't be able to double this and will have a very hard finding slam.

Assuming both East and South pass, the West hand should be treated as a NT hand despite holding two doubletons. It is acceptable to open a strong hand in NT when 5422, especially if there are honors in the doubletons. You might make an exception when your suits are the majors, particularly if not playing Puppet Stayman , but a NT opening should be automatic when your suits are in the minors. At first glance, with 20 HCP, the West hand is a clear 2NT opening, but the West hand is actually stronger than it appears, with the prime values, and good suits, and is certainly a maximum for a 2NT opening. Most East players will bid Stayman and then sign off in 3NT, knowing that their side has a maximum of 31 HCP, which is usually not quite enough for slam. However, the suit is much more powerful than the HCP would indicate, and West has a good chance of having a good suit fit, since they don't have a four card major. If East does decide to explore further for slam, one neat agreement used by many experts is described further below.

Optional Keycards for Minors (for advanced players): A useful agreement that some experts use when exploring for minor suit slams is that a natural bid of four of a minor in a forcing auction is an "Optional Keycard" bid for that minor. What does "Optional Keycard" mean? It means that the partner of the minor suit bidder is supposed to make the cheapest bid they can with no interest in slam in that minor, and otherwise, they respond showing how many keycards they have. If they show no slam interest, their partner can bid the cheapest next bid to insist on asking for keycards, or can make any other bid to play there, including 4NT. If a keycard response is made, then normal keycard followup bidding is used. The bidding in the diagram shows how this works. East bids 4 naturally. West has a super maximum for s, so rather than bidding 4, which would deny slam interest, West shows their number of keycards (4 = 1 or 4, 4NT = 0 or 3, etc.) East could bid 5 next, confirming all the keycards and asking about Kings (4NT would ask about the trump queen), or could decide a grand is likely out of reach and just bid 6. As all thirteen tricks can be made with careful play in a contract, getting to slam should be worth a lot of matchpoints for E/W.

  1. Two keycards without the trump () Queen

For the second hand in a row, 6 is a good contract for one of the pairs, but unlike Board 2, I think E/W should be able to bid this slam. With 19 HCP and two good five card suits, West should make a game forcing jumpshift to 3 after East responds 1NT. East has a very good hand for s, and in fact, some experts might just make an exclusion Blackwood bid in s, if they have that option, and if the West bid has promised a five card suit. A good number of experts I know use a 2NT bid over 1NT to show a game forcing unbalanced hand without a second five card suit, so that the 3 bid is always a five card suit. In more standard bidding, though, West will often be forced to bid 3 on a four card, or even a three card suit, so East can content themselves with bidding 4. A good agreement to have is to only raise partner's jumpshift bid of 3 or 3 with some slam interest, and otherwise to find another bid (new suit, 3NT, five of the minor with a terrible hand and long support, etc.) So, West will be happen to just bid Blackwood, hoping for two Aces from partner. You might be wondering what East should do with two Aces and a void? The general expert approach is to only show a void if it is a "working" void, i.e. never a void in partner's known long suit. So here, East should not show their void, as s is West's other primary suit. On the actual hand, with this agreement, if East showed two Aces and a void, West would know that East's void was in either s or s, and that East has at most a doubleton , so bidding a grand in s would be easy. After East shows two Aces, and properly suppresses their void, West will have an easy time bidding 6. As many pairs struggle to bid minor suit slams, getting to 6 should be worth a good matchpoint score. Any pairs who play 5 will not score well, as 12 tricks will be worth +620, but a NT contract has ten top tricks and will be worth at least +630.

  1. 18-19 HCP, six card suit

After North opens 1 and South bids 1NT, many pairs will not have discussed the difference between North rebidding 2NT and 3NT. The most common agreement that I'm aware of is shown here. After a major suit opening and a 1NT response, a 2NT bid shows an 18-19 HCP hand with exactly five cards in the major and a jump to 3NT shows 18-19 with a six card major, and no shortness. This isn't a universal agreement. As mentioned in the discussion on Board 3, many pairs like to use 2NT to show some sort of unbalanced game forcing hand, but without a side five card suit, thus guaranteeing that their jump shifts show 5-5 hands. Either way, you should discuss these sequences with your frequent partners. Many advancing players I know would claim that 3NT shows 18-19 HCP with a five card major, but if pressed, would claim the same thing about a 2NT, or would claim that they didn't know what 2NT would show. On the actual hand, if North bids 3NT promising a six card suit, South has good holdings in all three side card suits, and should have no reason at matchpoints to correct back to s. Playing 3NT will turn out to be a wise choice for N/S, as both a and a NT contract will have two losers and a loser. This is a bit lucky for N/S, as looking at just their hands, it looks like 4 is a better contract, as both the suit and the suit are a danger in NT. The scoresheet should be full of +620 and +630 scores.
