  1. opener's jump rebid
  2. Blackwood
  3. 1 ace

This week opens with another minor suit slam. (see Board 13 re: jump rebid)

Bidding: North opens the bidding 1 and South responds 1. North with 16 high card points , 4 losers and a self sustaining diamond suit AKQJ93, in the auction here, makes a jump rebid of 3. But for a hand with just 4 losers many might feel 3 understates North's hand and will want to make a game forcing Jump Shift to 3 and then rebid diamonds. Ron Klinger tends to agree with the 3 bid - Klinger in his Modern Losing Trick Count says you make a jump rebid (non-forcing) with 5-6 losers and a Jump Shift (forcing) with 4 losers. As it happens on this deal South with 14 support points , a heart suit AKJ109 as a source of tricks, 3 Quick Tricks (controls) and a supper 9-card fit in diamonds should explore for slam after either 3 or 3, the 3 bid just makes it easier.

After 3, my partnership agreements would take 4 by South as RKC Minorwood (for diamonds) but to be conventional, in the auction here 4NT is just plan old Blackwood and 5 is one ace.

Made 6 — NS +920

Play: There is not much to the play of 6. East does not have a good opening lead: the lead of a spade gives the spade suit away and the lead of a heart gives the heart suit away. So East leads the A which gives the clubs suit away. Declarer (North) can always set up hearts anyway.

  1. limit raise in spades
  2. control K
  3. control A
  4. A denies the A

So back to back slams to start ... the second slam is always the hardest in a set of boards. This is not an easy deal to bid.

Bidding: After two passes West with 20 high card points and 6 losers opens the bidding 1. Give West a better distribution of points (putting some KQ combination in a longer suit or maybe 3-1 instead of 2-2 in the minors) and West might open this hand 2. If East/West play two-way Drury where 2 shows 3-card support and 2 shows 4-card support and a limit raise East has an easy response of 2. In the auction here however, East as a passed hand, makes a jump raise to 3 which shows 3-4 card support for spades and 10-12 total points.¹

After East's bid of 3, West should have no problem finding slam. In the auction here West makes a control bid of 4 (below game showing K) and East like wise bids 5 shows the A and West bids 5 (above game shows the A and denies the A) and East just bids 6.

¹ After passed hand 3 cannot be preemptive ... there is no one to preempt.

Down 1 — NS +50

Play: The play of 6 is not difficult, in fact, if North does not lead the A on opening lead declarer (West) can take all the tricks pitching diamonds on clubs and finessing South for the K.

Fred Ferguson Hand Analysis
WestNorthEastSouth
   1
Dbl1Pass1Pass
32Pass4All pass
  1. Takeout Double
  2. twice rebiddable 22+ total points

Another hand in the category of jump rebidding a suit. (see Board 1 and Board 17)

West has a huge hand, a hand worth an opening 2 bid, too big to just overcall diamonds (7 losers ) straight away. So! If West doubles and then bid diamonds West should have a hand equal to a Reverse or good 16-18 high card points (6 losers) and if West should double and jump in his suit it should show a self sustaining suit and 19+ hcp (4 losers) game forcing values.

Bidding: South opens the bidding 1. West with 22 hcp and 4 losers doubles first (looks like a standard Takeout Double) and East bids 1, a weak response. West jumps to 3 showing game forcing values of 19+ hcp, a self sustaining 6-card suit of AQJ964 (equivalent of a jump rebid suit) and 4 losers. East bid of 4 is close out, saying I have nothing but hearts and West holding KQJ passes.

Made 4 — NS −620

Play: This is a very tricky deal to play. Declarer (East) can see no way to legitimately get to his hand, and as such, the only way to take 10 tricks is to force the opponents to either all for a ruff of a club in the strong hand or to force the opponents to lead diamonds, a finesse against the K. So in the play here declarer wins the A and exits the Q. South leads back a club allowing for a ruff with dummy's J.

double dummy 4 can be beat if after the opening lead of a spade defence lead a second spade before declarer can play the A and out the Q but once declarer can set up the diamonds the defense is doomed.

Fred Ferguson Hand Analysis

 Pass1Pass
11Pass32Pass
43All pass  
  1. forcing F1
  2. jump rebid
  3. no interest in slam

Another jump rebid. (see Board 1) On Board 1 the jump rebid is made with absolute maximum values (any more and the rebid should be a Jump Shift to 3) and here made with absolute minimum values (any less and the rebid should be a simple rebid of 2).

Bidding: East opens the bidding 1. (North/South are silent throughout.) West would like to make a forcing raise in hearts. but with only 3 hearts West ops to bid 1 (not really trying to play in spades but 1 is forcing) with the plan to show hearts on his second bid. East on rebid with 14 high card points , self sustaining heart suit AKQJ62 and just 5 losers ops to make a jump rebid of 3. West with an ordinary 12 hcp (not worthy of exploring for slam) just bids 4.

Play: The play of this deal could get tricky, if North/South get lazy and let declarer (East) push out the A and regain entry declarer can pitch two spades on the KQ making 5.

  1. 1NT semi-forcing
  2. 6-card suit

Just for demonstration purposes, here is a hand where opener cannot make a jump rebid. (see Board 1 and Board 13)

Bidding: North opens the bidding 1 and South responds 1NT semi-forcing. North with just 12 high card points and a spade suit AJ10982 with 2 potential losers and 7 losers hand can only rebid 2. South with 11 hcp, 14 support points and 7 losers would like to explore for game but opposite North's rebid of just 2 is warned off game.

2 by North
