  1. 1NT Forcing
  2. natural

This heart week, Board 1 starts off with a nice contrast in bidding styles.

Bidding: North deals and opens the bidding 1. Players whose bidding systems are based on modern standard methods with a good 6-card heart suit AK9842 and 9 high card points might respond 2. In the auction here here, 2/1 Game Force players must first respond 1NT Forcing and after North rebids 2 South bids 2 as natural and to play. North has good support for hearts and raises to 3, but South has bid all his values and passes 3.

In this auction, it is really hard for East/West to get into the auction. The 1NT freezes West and after North bids 2, it is really hard for East to get into the auction with clubs.

Play: On defense the lead of the 8, as in the defense here, through dummy means East/West can win K, AK and K holding this contract to making 3. On the lead of a heart or a club declarer (South) will have time to set up spades for pitches and making 4.

All pass   

This is a very pushy auction.

Bidding: South opens the bidding 1 and West overcalls 1. With North only holding 9 high card points , many will have North first make a Negative Double then bid hearts. But North has a really good heart suit KQJ87 of three consecutive honors with two intermediates and two doubletons which rates to shortness. North bids 2 and East competes with 2. Here is the disadvantage of competing in hearts against spades, if South bids 3 West will just bid 3 and now do they let spades out rank them. South knowing E/W have a fit in spades and looking at three spades know North must have some shortness in spades so just bids 4 making E/W compete to 4.

4 by North

Made 4 — NS +620

Play: The play of this deal is not difficult. East/ West are entitled to win A and AK the only question is the placement of the A and since West overcalled 1 it is likely West holds the values for the A. So a finesse against the A and the K is a winner.

  1. jump raise
  2. RKC Blackwood
  3. 2 keycards w/o the Q

Nice heart slam.

Bidding: South deals and open the bidding 1 and North responds 1. South with 4 hearts and 16 support points makes a jump raise to 3. This is all North needs to hear to go slamming. North's 4 shows a two suited fit in the red suits and South's bid of 4 says, I have defined my hand. North bids 4NT as Roman Keycard Blackwood and South bids 5 says 2 key cards without the Q. This is all North needs to know to bid 6.

So can they find 7? Not in this auction if South on rebids splinters in 3 (actually overbidding) then North can find 7. But it will take South over bidding with 3 to get to 7.

6 by North

Made 7 — NS +1460

Play: This deal is not hard to play North/South have all of the high cards. On the lead of the Q, the most dangerous lead, North could duck one round of clubs, but this deal will still rely on finding the Q. So in the play here declarer (North) jumps up with the A pulls trump and finesses East for the Q, making 7.

So why East. Because East lead the Q which means West must have the clubs, so East the diamonds.

Fred Ferguson Hand Analysis
WestNorthEastSouth
 21332
4All pass  
  1. Weak Two-Bid
  2. extending the preempt

This is a very interesting hand. Over North's opening bid of 2, East bid of 4 would be Leaping Michaels Cue Bid promising a good hand with at least five cards in the suit bid, clubs and five of the other major, hearts. But on this deal East only has four hearts.

Bidding: North opens the bidding 2. While East would like to make a Leaping Michaels Cue Bid with only four hearts East overcalls 3. South, the gnat, extends the preempt to 3 and West now bids 4. East is happy, happy, happy.

Play: Nice defense here holds the deal to 4. North leads the A and switches to diamonds which South wins his A and givess North a club ruff.

Fred Ferguson Hand Analysis

 11Dbl1
232Pass33
Pass3NTPass44
All pass   
  1. Negative Double
  2. game forcing cuebid
  3. preference for hearts
  4. seriously hearts

This is not an easy deal to bid.

Bidding: North deals and opens the bidding 1 with the plan on rebid to jump to 2NT to show an 18-19 high card points balanced hand. East overcalls 1 and now what does South do? In the auction here, South doubles to show both spades and hearts, a Negative Double. West, the gnat, bids 2 and North cuebids 3. North's 3 shows a big hand with game values opposite South's Negative Double. South bids 3 and North bids 3NT as both showing a balanced hand and an attempt to play in NT to max out the hand. But in for a penny in for a pound, South is having none of this and runs to 4.

Play: This is not a hard deal to play. On a spade lead, West wins the A on the switch to trump and gives East a spade ruff. And now North must loose a diamond with no place to hide.
