Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

The trick for North-South will be to get their combined 25 points to a 3 Nt contract. West deals and probably opens 1. North has two choices: pass or double. If he passes, East will likely respond 1, not wanting to lay down a void in diamonds as dummy. South overcalls 1 and West either bids 2, passes or makes a Support Double(s) , showing 3. North will cue-bid if given the opportunity. Now, South can bid 2 NT if there is room. This is unlikely but possible. North will carry on to 3 NT. Alternately, if North doubles 1, South will likely just bid 4. This will not have a happy ending. Those bidding and making 3 NT will get a well-deserved top board.

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

North deals and opens 1. East has a bad suit to overcall but, if he must bid, the only logical call is 2. This will generate a lively auction. South either cue bids or introduces his heart suit. I think I would bid the 6 card suit. At favorable vulnerability, West may put the pressure on with a jump to 5. This may goad North into bidding 5. This could be defeated if West finds a diamond lead - not all that unreasonable on the auction. If East-West go plus, either defending 5 or 5, they should have a good board.

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

Although South can make 3 spades, it is difficult to see how they can get there. Some Souths will open the bidding with 1. I would not. West, although aceless, has a pretty routine 1 NT overcall. North raises to 2. Here, E-W need to have some agreement as to what the bids mean. If they have the agreement that a 2 NT bid by East shows two places to play, this hand would be ideal. If 2 NT is a relay to 3, now East has to decide which red suit to bid. If he bids 3 he will strike gold. If he bids 3, he will strike out!

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

I would expect Standard American bidders to get to 4, played by South. South deals and opens 2. North bids 2, waiting, or some other bid showing controls. South now rebids 2 NT, showing 22-24 points. A sneaky North might just bid 3 NT, playing for all the marbles! This would be a resounding success. But most Norths will transfer with a 3 call. As South, I would super accept with a bid of 4. This should be the normal contract and the result should be +450 for North-South. Those No Trump bidders, making five, should share the top score.
