  1. forcing raise in hearts

This week starts off with an overbidding sequence.

Bidding* East opens the bidding 1 and South overcalls 1. East/West might have a partnership agreement to play some form of Bergen Raises Raises over interference such as BROMAD s¹, but in the auction here West with 12 support points and four hearts chooses to cuebid 2 as a forcing raise in hearts. After 2 (North is out of the auction) East with a spade stopper and a balance hand might choose 2NT, maybe the best descriptive bid of East hand. The bid of 2NT might also warn West off of game. But in the auction here East bids 3 and sure enough West bids 4.

¹ BROMAD is an acronym for "Bergen Raises of a Major After a Double

Down 2 — NS +100

Play* The natural lead from South's hand would most likely be the K, but South does not want to lead into an AJ9x tenace, so looks for a better option. Not wanting to lead away from either diamonds or clubs, South chooses to lead trumps. Leading a heart in this auction looks like a very safe lead not giving anything away. As it turns out it is the best lead ... when the opponents get to game and you hold the balance of the remaining high card points , just try not to give anything away.

  1. strong and forcing
  2. waiting or forcing
  3. 22-24 high card points
  4. Jacoby Transfer

I am big into minor suit slams, but but minor suit slams are often hard to bid even with big hands.

Bidding* North opens the bidding 2 strong and forcing and South responds 2 either waiting or forcing. North rebids 2NT showing a balanced hand with 22-24 hcp. South bids 3 as a transfer to spades and North accepts the transfer with 3, nothing special about 3. At this point in the auction South has little indication clubs is the right contract, North can easily have 3-spades and will rebid spades. All South can do is bid 3NT showing game values but nothing special and giving North an opportunity to continue the auction. North having defined his hand passes 3NT.

Made 5 — NS +460

Play* East on opening lead has no indication not to lead diamonds so leads the 6 into the AJ10. Declarer (North) finds the winning play crossing to dummy in clubs and leading up to the Q before losing control in diamonds. The finesse against the K wins and now it is easy for North to cash out pitching a losing heart or diamond on the A.

  1. tends to be forcing

There seems to be a theme developing this week of big hands that just don't go anywhere.

Bidding* Some with 20 high card points and a singleton A might consider opening South's hand 2NT, but I cannot think of any good reason to hide a really nice heart suit AKJ653 ... I would sooner open this hand 2 than 2NT. South opens 1 and West overcalls 2. North with what looks like 4 unusable hcp passes and South reopens the bidding with a jump to 3. After partner's passes 3 shows a really strong hand and should be forcing with holding any values at all! North now drug into the auction (bites the inside of his cheek and) bids 3. South with what looks like maybe 8-9 tricks in hand bids 3NT.

Made 3 — NS +400

Play* Not much to the play of this deal. Declarer (South) could get cute and duck the K but declarer has 9 tricks off the top and nothing more.

  1. 20-21 high card points balanced
  2. Puppet Stayman
  3. no 5-card or 4-card major

And yet again another big hcp hand that does not go anywhere.

Bidding* After 3 passes East with a balanced 20 hcp opens the bidding 2NT. With points divided North 7 hcp and South 8 hcp it is unlikely North or South compete in this auction. West bids 3 (Puppet Stayman) and East bids 3NT denying a 5 or 4-card major.

Play* Given time to set up spades and diamonds declarer (East) can make a lot of tricks but South jumps on clubs right away and East must set up diamonds for the extra trick in diamonds.

  1. responder's Reverse

And so finally a slam but not from a huge hand but two hands that share the high card points .

Bidding* West opens the bidding 1 (not 3NT) and East responds 1. West with only 13 hcp rebids 2 and East makes a responder's reverse off 2 ... the 2 shows a really good hand as West as already denied having 4 spades. West bids 3 now showing a suit with extra length. East bids 3 which not an attempt to play in hearts but a further descriptive bid. West is now convinced 3NT might be the play with the protected K97 in his hand and East now supports to 5. West bid 6 and many might let West play this hand in 6, but because West had earlier bid 3NT, Eat converts to 6NT.

Play* With the opening lead of the K declarer West cannot risk the contract trying to find the J and takes 12 tricks and is happy.
