Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

I wouldn’t think many pairs will bid this 26 point slam. One possible auction which might get the there would be: 1 - P - 1 - P, 2 - p - 2. Now South, whose hand has improved might try 4, a Splinter bid in support of hearts. This should be enough to force North to bid Blackwood. When North finds out about the singleton club, he can comfortably bid the slam. Plus 980 will be the best score N-S can hope for. Unlikely to see many of them, however. But, bridge favors the bold!

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

Another slam which is more likely to be bid. If East decides to open a weak 2 bid in diamonds, this may slow the auction down. Fortunately, I play Flannery so don’t have to worry about that. After 3 passes, West will probably open 2. If E-W have the agreement that any suit bid shows two of the top three honors and promises nothing else, he may bid 3. This really crowds the auction though. If he bids a waiting 2, West can bid 2. East raises to 3 and they are off to the races. With careful play, 7 can be made without the ace of clubs lead. Although difficult to lead it, knowing the king is on your right, it will be the winner this time.plus 1460 for E-W will tie for top.

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

West deals and probably opens 1. The other alternative is 1NT if you play 16-18 as your range. Does anyone play that anymore? If North and East pass, South better know that , if he bids, he’s going to get a worse score than letting them play 1. If he balances, it should be with 1NT. But remember, your partner didn’t bid over 1. If he has a 5 card major, he doesn’t have a good hand! Should east respond 1, this should improve the contract as partner jumps to 2NT. This is the best place to play but you need to be one level higher. It should be a rarity for E-W to get to 3NT.

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

After West passes, North will probably open 1NT. This is a very chunky 17 count but it will probably be the norm. Some Easts will bid especially if they can show two suits. But it sure is risky! If they don’t bid, South will use Stayman and North will bid 2. Most Souths will just bid 4 and play it there. If South decides to Splinter with 4, this should get them to slam. North would cue bid 4 and south 5. North can bid 5. If south bids 6, there is a slight chance North would push to 7. Bit I doubt it. Any slam bidders will get a top. On the other hand, if East intervenes and rests in 2, the opponents can beat it enough to outscore all the non-slam bidders. Discretion...

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

A likely auction will be P - 1 - P - 3NT. This is a point over the normal range of 13-15, but deduct a point for the flat distribution. West should make 5. If North leads the Q and South overtakes to cash the king, that is the end of the defense. Instead, even if North leads a passive spade, West would have to play a club before giving up a diamond to North. This is all very unlikely. If North leads a heart, West can do the same thing by setting up the fifth diamonds. But, in order to make 5, the club play is still essential. I would assume the normal result is 3NT making 4 for plus 430. Those who make 5 will get a terrific score.

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

Since South is the dealer, his opening bid should be 1. It’s possible to open 3 in 3rd seat but not as opening bidder. North will bid either 1 (if not playing Flannery or 1NT (forcing). South will rebid 2 which should end the auction. It is very risky for East to ever double. North-South could get +200 against against either 2 or 2 if they double. The knowledgeable ones say you can make 2. Maybe without a spade opening lead. However, even with a spade lead, South would have to lead the 7 to the 8 to avoid three heart losers. The most likely results should be either -110 or +100 for E-W. Discretion for east...
