  1. maybe 2/1 GF
  2. limits values

I have hurricane construction clean up today, I am not sure what I can get done on today's deals. Let's not make the bidding on Board 1 any more difficult than it should be.

Bidding: East opens with 1 and West bids 2. Two Over One Game Force bidders fall into two camps 1) 2 is game forcing and 2) 2 is almost game forcing. East can't bid 2, as a Reverse , and is thus compelled to bid 2. West now bids 2 which shows game values. East can now bid out the shape of his with 2.

Now comes the linchpin bid ... West could bid 2NT (would not object to 2NT) but, in the auction here, West decides to show limited values 11-12 high card points and bids 3 which effectively calls off game forcing (if it was ever on). East could try for 4, but West 3 bid showed no encouragement for game and after all East only has 13 hcp.

3 by East

Play: This deal might be played out a number of way but with a heart lead North/South should win K, the K and the K.

All pass   
  1. balancing 1NT 11-14 high card points

I can tell, this is going to be a week of controversial bidding.

Bidding: East opens the bidding 1 and South is frozen with values but no bid, unless your partnership plays Minimum Offshape Takeout Double . West passes and North makes a balancing 1NT, which typically shows 11-14 hcp balanced and a diamond stopper. East, after partner's pass bids 2, not as a Reverse , but showing good opening values - East with 3-spades and 4-hearts could have make a reopening double. South now has the opportunity to show opening values by jumping to 3NT.

Play: As valiant an effort as East may make, West with just 2 jacks is out of this this deal. Declarer North knows where every point is and West just cant have much.

Fred Ferguson Hand Analysis
WestNorthEastSouth
  PassPass
1Pass1NTPass
Pass2Pass3
All pass   

Maybe another controversial bidding deal.

Bidding: Some might consider opening South's hand but with 9 losers , just pass. West opens the bidding 1, North passes and East bids 1NT. South and West pass and North balances with 2. South should be content with 2 and pass, but in the auction here raises to 3.

3 by North

Made 3 — NS +140

Play: A good defensive maneuver, when you think the opponents are bidding on shape is the lead of a trump. In the play here North/South makes 3.
