  1. Transfer

Most pairs will arrive in 2 on this hand, usually declared by East. If E/W are using a weak NT, then West might be the declarer. The declarer will matter on this hand. If West is declarer, North is likely to lead the Jack, and the defense should have no problems taking their two tricks right away, and realizing that they need to cash out their winners when they get in with the Ace. However, in the more common event that East is the declarer in 2, things are more complicated for the defense. South has a good chance of leading a major. If South leads s, North can win the Ace, but now what? If North thinks that South has a singleton, they will continue s and declarer will quickly pull trump and discard one of their s losers on the suit. If South instead switches to a , it doesn't necessarily get any better for the defense. After South wins the second , they will know, since North will play the 10 on the second round, that North has a doubleton. Some deep analysis of the hand would make it clear that continuing s is only likely to gain North a trump trick if North holds specifically QJ, but many Souths will just continue s anyway without thinking too much about it. Even if South decides to switch, I expect that many will choose to switch to a second round of s, or a trump, not desiring to lead away from the King into the East 1NT opening. This isn't even an unreasonable defense, as East might well have a hand such as QJx Kxx Kxx AQJx or similar and leading a will be deadly. The bottom line is that the defense will be much harder if East declares 2, and I expect there will be many +140 scores in the E/W direction, perhaps outnumbering the +110 scores.

It happens that N/S will do well in a contract. However, it's hard to see how they can get there. Even if South has a natural 2 bid available over 1NT, North might not raise with only a doubleton in support, albeit a good doubleton. Most pairs use an artificial defense to 1NT, and this will make it even harder for N/S as South won't be able to show s right away and will be forced to decide whether to compete to 3 with a poor quality suit and no certainty that the opponents have even found a fit.

E/W might well get too high on this hand, perhaps after a lot of cue bidding. Many pairs will just play in game. Looking at just the E/W hands, 6 is not a bad contract. At worst, the contract depends on the Ace being onside, but on a lead of either s or s, the chance also exists of setting up a long if the suit breaks 4-3, witht he finesse as a fall back. After East opens the bidding, most South players will overcall 1. East isn't quite strong to open 2NT, but even if they do and end up declaring 6, unless South leads the Ace, the contract will be doomed. As it happens, if North leads the Jack against a contract, the defense will take the first three tricks and even 5 will not make. As this lead looks unlikely, any North player who finds it will end up with an excellent result even if E/W are just playing 4.

A few comments on the bidding are appropriate. Assuming the South overcalls 1, the North hand isn't really strong enough to raise, despite holding four card support. It might be a little tempting to bid 3 if North had a singleton somewhere, but passing looks best on the actual hand. The last thing North wants to do is to propel South into a 5 sacrifice over 4. Also, note that preempting is far less useful when both opponents have already had a chance to bid, as the opponents already know a good bit about each other's hands. Thus, a 3 bid on this sequence should show a good hand for playing s and not just a hand that wants to be disruptive. After East bids 2NT, you might wonder whether West's 3 bid is forcing? Unless you have a specific agreement otherwise, all bids are forcing if your partner jumps to 2NT opposite your response to his opening bid, whether the opponents have been bidding or not. With East having shown a strong hand, and West unlimited, it is very important to be able to explore for slam and not worry about your partner passing. Most experts would play that the 3 bid establishes that s are trump and asks East to cue bid if they have a good hand for slam. If West only wants to play s if East has support, then they can start by bidding 3 over 2NT to "check back" for support. Should East cooperate in a slam try, and if so, what should they bid? If the East hand could still be a minimal opener, then the cheapest cue bid (3 here) is the preferred way to progress towards slam. However, when East has shown significant extra values, many experts play that a cue bid shows concentrated values, better than just an Ace or King. With this agreement, East should bid 4, and now West will know that East doesn't have a great holding in s and will likely just sign off in 4. This is a useful agreement particularly if East has opened 2NT or stronger, but can apply after the jump to 2NT. However, this is not a standard agreement and you should research further before considering it in your serious partnerships.

A contract by E/W will be common on this hand, though aggressive N/S pairs might give E/W some difficulties. Holding both majors, third seat, at favorable vulnerability, and with a good suit, I admit that I would open the North hand without thinking too much about it. 3 seems a likely contract whether North opens, passes throughout, or passes initially and then overcalls 2. It's possible, though, that if North passes originally, the bidding will be p-p-p-1-p-1NT-2-p-3-all pass.

A contract has at most three losers, and might have only two losers if the defense fails to cash their Ace. A contract by N/S in theory can be held to seven tricks, if East leads the Ace and then a low so that the South hand can be prevented from ruffing the fourth round of s, but in practice this well never happen. More likely, East will lead a high and the defense is likely to end up with five tricks. So, 3 will be a good spot for N/S even if it is doubled. +130 for E/W is likely to be the most common score, so doing better than that in either direction should score well for somebody.

  1. Transfer

E/W will play in a NT contract at most tables, though I expect there to be a close to even split between those playing 2NT and those playing 3NT. Some South pairs might double a 2 transfer bid by East, and this will lead to further variations in the contract, and the result. Doubling 2 with the South hand is certainly dangerous, having the drawback that the opponents might redouble if North is short in s, or the final contract might be 2, rather than NT, in which case South probably doesn't want a lead and the double might aid the opponents in discovering the right place to play. The main advantage to doubling is if the opponents are going to play NT, you really don't want North leading a . This hand is the perfect example of this. If South, reasonably, passes 2, then North will be on lead against either 2NT or 3NT. If North leads a , or indeed anything other than a , then declarer has almost no chance of making nine tricks, as long as South doesn't get stuck leading a at some point. On a lead from North, however, declarer's chances go way up. Declarer can win the King and lead another . If North ducks this and South ducks two rounds of s, the hand will still be a little tricky for the declarer, but that requires a lot of careful defensive play and declarer can still make the contract with just a little care. . Most likely, declarer will end up with three tricks in each minor to go with their three top tricks in the majors. Making nine tricks will be an excellent score for E/W whether they are in game or not, though certainly the top scores will go to those who both bid and make game.
