Fred Ferguson Hand Analysis
WestNorthEastSouth
 PassPassPass
11Pass2All pass
  1. Rule of 20

This week is spade week, we start of with a simple spade contract.

Some might open South's hand in 3rd seat 1, but I like 3rd seat opening in 1m to be full opening hands (there is no reason to let the opponents into an auction with an overcall of 1M). If South passes then West might not enter the auction in 4th seat.

Bidding* In the auction here West with two 5-card suits and 2 Quick Tricks (Rule of 20) opens the auction 1 and East raises to 2 effectively blocking North/South from entering the auction at the 3-level.

2 by West

Made 3 — NS −140

Play* The play of this deal really plays like a dream. North with KJ2 can't lead a spade on opening lead which allows declarer West to set up a cross ruff on clubs and diamonds.

Fred Ferguson Hand Analysis

 21Pass22
Pass3NT3Pass44
Pass4All pass 
  1. strong & forcing
  2. waiting
  3. 25+ high card points
  4. transfer

This deal requires a partnership agreement on bidding large balanced hands. Most partnership would play something like opening 2NT is 20-21 hcp so hands with greater values would be opened 2 (reserving opening 3NT).

Bidding* North with a balanced 26 hcp opens the bidding 2 and South responds 2 as waiting (some might play 2 as a bust). North rebids 3NT showing 25+ hcp (some might play Kokish relays here). Over 3NT, 4 is a transfer to spades (best option).

Play* With West holding the singleton K it makes no difference if North drops the K or plays three rounds of clubs ruffing in the dummy and leading a spade up to the AQ.

  1. preemptive
  2. natural & forcing

Bidding* East with 8 high card points and 7 clubs KJ109654 opens the bidding 3 as a preemptive bid. West responds 3 forcing - West can take this action with 17 hcp and the A, if necessary West can retreat to 4. East with A6 and singleton diamond bids 4.

Made 4 — NS −620

Play* The play of this deal is not hard but requires a number of moves. With a diamond lead declarer West wins the first diamond in hand and cashes the A. Then ruffs a diamond and cashes the K pitching a heart, plays a third club and pitches a heart. In the end West loses 3 tricks depending on the play, which tricks.

Compare this deal with Board 9, East's hand here has 10 high card points and 6 losers with an awesome spade suit AQJ10975, K8 and singleton diamond. This is not a preemptive hand!

Bidding* East opens the bidding 1 and West makes a 2/1 game forcing bid of 2. In a forcing auction East rebids 2 (which could be a minimum hand or extra length) and West bids 3 showing extra values. East continues 3 which should now show a 7-card suit and West makes a test for slam with 4NT as Roman Keycard Blackwood for spades. East responds 1 keycard and then shows the missing Q by showing the K.

  1. Negative Double
  2. 19 point hand

Ok finishing up with our final spade deal.

Bidding* In the auction here, North with an awesome hand opens the bidding 1 with the plan on rebid to jump to 3NT. East overcalls 1 and South makes a Takeout Double showing 4 spades (not 5 spades). It is easy with North holding 20 support points for spades to bid 4.
