This week starts off with a tough auction ... and some bad bids.

Bidding* East opens 1 and West responds 1. (N/S are silent throughout.)¹ East with 14 high card points and 6 losers rebids 2 and West makes a jump rebid of 3. After first responding 1, the jump 3 is not a preemptive bid. East bids out the shape of his hand with 3, and thus, after bidding diamonds, clubs and hearts a singleton or void in spades. In addition 3 shows a good hand as 3 forces West to the 4-level to correct to 4 or 4. So what is West's bid of 4 ... 4 is not just a simple preference of clubs, west has already shown a fit in diamonds. West is showing a second fit in clubs so West having bid spades, diamonds and clubs must have shortness in hearts. But 4 is probably a bad bid ... West needs to just bid 5, openers first bid minor. East has not shown slam values and West knows holding similar values in J1074 and J1042 wants to play in diamonds. East saves the bacon bidding 5 and West corrects to 5.

¹ While some might overcall 1 with South's hand, South does not have the values to compete and holding Q9 and Q98 there is no guarantee a heart lead is correct, South should Pass.

Play* The play of this deal is not difficult, after the opening lead of a spade, declarer (East) wins the A in dummy and plays two rounds of diamonds. Now declarer can ruff two hearts and loses the club finesse to the Q losing 1 heart and 1 club.

  1. 20-21 high card points balanced
  2. natural

Vulnerability is such an important factor in bridge, yet many players recklessly ignore the risk of vulnerability. In the auction here North vulnerable (red) vs. not vulnerable (white) makes a questionable overcall of 3. Reverse the vulnerability where North/South have favorable vulnerability of white vs. red and 3 would be a great bid, but with unfavorable vulnerability of red vs. white 3 is suicidal.

Bidding* After two passes, West with 20 hcp and a balanced hand opens the bidding 2NT, North overcalls 3 and East must consider options. East is pretty certain with the East/West partnership holding 29-30 hcp combined and East holding the Ax and support for Q987x diamonds and Qxx clubs with favorable vulnerability the best contract is letting North play in 3x (doubled), but how to get there?

I shared this deal with a number of bridge friends¹ and the consensus is that East's double of 3 will show values and is for takeout (not penalty) as Jerry Helms says "negative-ish". The only way to get to 3 doubled is for East to pass which everyone agrees is not a forcing pass (i.e., West could Pass 3) and West to double back in as a reopening (or protective) double. So partnership agreements come into play, if E/W have a partnership understanding as Gary Donner says then West will go out of his way to make a reopening double, then Pass by East will lead to a great contract of 3x. Without such partnership agreement Marty Nathan says 3NT is the obvious call.

¹ Marty Nathan - Atlanta, Kevin Wilson - Knoxville, Jerry Helms - Charlotte and Geoff Phipps & Gary Donner - Hilton Head Island.

Play* double dummy there is not much to the play of this deal declarer (West) ducks the opening spade lead, wins the return of a spade with A in dummy gives up a diamond, making 5. If declarer decides a safer line of play to play out the hand taking all winners i.e., not risking North having the reentry, as in the play here it only makes 4 losing 2 at the end.

Lets look at two questionable 3NT deals Board 3 and Board 5. From double dummy we can see 3NT is suppose make but 4 is not suppose to make. In the auction here North uses the response of 1 as a forcing bid like a 1NT Forcing bid to show a 3-card limit raise in hearts.

Bidding* South opens 1. (E/W are silent throughout.) With only 3-card support it is hard for North using modern methods to initially show a the 3-card fit in hearts and limit raise values of 10 support points and 8½ losers . In response to 1 North first responds 1 and when South rebids 2 North jumps to 3. In this auction, with South holding a singleton spade there is just no way South will attempt 3NT and with 17 support points bids 4.

Play* double dummy this deal will not make 4 on the lead of the 9, but the natural lead is the lead of the K. In this play here with the lead of the K West does not get a ruff on the third diamond.
