  1. 18-19 high card points balanced
  2. no interest in slam
  3. asking about spade honors
  4. does not have top spades

This week starts of with what should be an easy 4 deal.

Bidding: Some with East's hand of 11 hcp, 7 losers and 6 spades will have East opening the bidding 1, and that is ok. But in the auction here, after three passes West opens the bidding 1 and East responds 1. West's rebid of 2NT shows 18-19 hcp and a balanced hand - for most top partnerships 2NT does not deny spades. With just 5 spades East could use 3 as Major Suit Checkback , asking West to further define his hand, but with 6 spades East bids 3 and West can now bid 4. If West had shown any excitement for spade, it would not be unreasonable to make a slam try, in fact, in the auction here 5 specifically asks West about the quality of his spades. West pass of 5 denies top values in spades.

The partnerships that have East opening this deal 1 may easily find themselves over bidding this deal.

Fred Ferguson Hand Analysis

 Pass11
Pass2Pass31
Pass4All pass 
  1. mild game try

Where Board 1 was an easy 4, this is a hard 4.

Bidding: East opens the bidding 1 and South overcalls 1. North responds with a free bid of 2. East, after West pass, is out of the auction. Many with South's hand might pass, but East bids 3. North has to question "why if South did not double first an then bid spades" would he bid 3 now, and the answer must be South has extra length in spades not necessarily extra strength. North with 8 high card points and good controls of K and A bids 4.

Made 4 — NS +620

Play: The play of this deal is not hard, all missing values must be in East hand. With the lead of a club the opening lead is ducked to the Q and a trick has been established for the pitch of the 7. With the lead of a diamond, declarer (South) wins the A and crosses to dummy and leads a club up to the Q, same result
