Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

This should be a fairly routine auction. Three passes and North opens 1. East passes and South responds 1. West might make a very light take out double at favorable vulnerability. Otherwise, north rebids 2 NT. South uses new minor to see if North has 3, North bids 3 and South goes on to four. The normal lead is the K which will hold south to eleven tricks. The other possibility is for South to raise to 3 NT. Although unlikely, it could result in a great score for N-S if East leads the 10. This allows North to duck a heart and take 11 tricks for +660 and a top. Assuming North gets the clubs right. If East leads a spade against 3NT, the resulting bottom will cause N-S to re-examine the auction!

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

I do not think this hand qualifies for a vulnerable 3 opening in first seat. Some will do it anyway and won’t be punished. If West and North pass, East will likely open 3. South will probably double, hoping to hit partner with a four card or longer major suit. When North bids 3, South’s best alternative is to bid 3 NT. South has nine tricks off the top in 3 NT. If West leads a club, that ups the total to ten tricks. South can take ten tricks on his own but probably will not. He would have to lead toward the K and then duck the Q when East leads it. Too tough for me. E-W can salvage something by sacrificing in 4.

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

With some good guessing, E-W can make ten tricks in spades, for +420. I don’t see a good way to get there. West deals and passes. North opens 1 and East overcalls 1. South will raise to 2. West does not have enough to cue bid with just eight points and only 3. North should pass. East will likely pass as will South. There should be some + 170’s and + 140’s littering the score sheet. A few E-W pairs might chance a game try but must play carefully to make four. They will need to use the heart entry to lead toward the K. Then, after ruffing the third diamond, they need to lead the 10 to the Q. Otherwise, they will lose a diamond, a club and two spades. Plus 420 will earn a well-deserved top board.

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

Unless pushed, it may be difficult for N-S to reach the top spot of 4. After two passes, East will open 1 in third seat. South will overcall 1. The key bid in the auction may occur now. It is close whether north bids 2 or 3. With flat distribution and the apparently “wasted” Q, most will just bid 2. This should end the auction but some Wests, blinded by the distribution and not worrying about the lack of high cards, will persist with either 3 or 3. Surely either North or South will take the push. If south bids 3, an adventuresome North might carry on to game -- he may assume partner has a singleton heart, which does slightly improve his hand. If N-S reach game, with ten easy tricks, the best E-W can do is sacrifice at the five level and be -300 in either 5x or 5x. And to think they could have let N-S play a quiet 2!

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

East deals and passes. South’s opening bid will be key here. If he decides to open an un-aggressive 3!!, it will likely go X - P - 3NT. Now, South has almost forced them to end up in the right contract. But, if South opens 4, the opponents can no longer play 3NT. If West doubles, East should pass. If he makes the unfortunate bid of 5, though unlikely, he will end up with an unfortunate match point score. + 200 for E-W should be a popular score.
