  1. 2/1 GF
  2. some extra values

This week starts off with a nice easy 2/1 auction.

Bidding: Some with North's hand might open 2 or even 3. So much depends on partnership agreements. With only 5 high card points , in the auction here, North passes. Even if North preempts the bidding with both East and West holding opening hands, North jumping into this auction should not deter E/W from reaching game.

East opens the bidding 1 and West makes a 2/1 Game Forcing bid of 2. East's rebid of 2 would typically show a two-suited hand and doesn't restrict values. West's bid of 3 sets trump as spades and in modern standard methods an opening hand, whereas in 2/1 shows something like a king better than an opening hand. East's rebid of 4 now restricts values showing no interest in slam.

Made 4 — NS −420

Play: With an opening lead of the 6, this deal has the potential of going side ways. If declarer (East) fools around and does not pull trump, the return of a heart or a diamond will give South an upper cut in spades with the J playing behind the Q10, and thus, going down 1.

  1. Unusual Notrump

Opening lite ... or maybe not!

Bidding: With 11 high card points some might pass South's hand, but with 7 losers and really good intermediates in spades AQ1095 and hearts A1097, 5-4-2-2 shape, and a good rebid South rates to have an opening hand. South opens the bidding 1 and West makes an Unusual notrump over call of 2NT for the minors ( & ). North's bid of 3 is game forcing and South bids 4 for a 24 hcp game. Some might have East competing to 5m, not vulnerable either 5 or 5 would be a reasonable call. But after South opens the bidding and supported hearts, it will not be hard for North to bid 5.

Made 6 — NS +680

Play: The defense on this deal is kinda funky. On the lead of a club East/West can win 2 club tricks AK, but with East holding four spades, it is not unrealistic that West, after bidding 2NT for the minors, might be void in spades. In the play here, East leads the 2 allowing declarer, after pulling trump to set up the spade suit, making 6.

Fred Ferguson Hand Analysis
WestNorthEastSouth
 PassPassPass
11Pass22Pass
33Pass4All pass
  1. full opening hand
  2. Drury
  3. natural

So Board 2 was a 24 high card points game, how about a 22 hcp game.

Bidding: After three passes West opens the bidding 1. East/West have the partnership agreement not to open light in 4th seat, as the opponents' just might take the auction away from you, so 1 represents a full opening hand. East's response to 1 is 2 4-card Drury showing limit raise raise values and asking West, not if he has a full opening hand, East already knows he has a full opening hand, but asking if he has an interest in game. With 14 hcp and 16 support points West's bid of 3 is an encouraging bid and natural, showing a suit with length and values. With the J4 it looks like all of East's values are working, the A protecting one of the unbid suits.

Made 4 — NS −620

Play: On the lead of the 2 the lead appears to give a trick away, but gaining a diamond trick only allows declarer (West) to pitch one heart from dummy and declarer only has two heart losers . So picking up the spades in two rounds declarer can trump diaomds in dummy and hearts and clubs in hand, making 4.

All pass   
  1. Weak Two-Bid

So on Board 9, 22 high card points makes game but not so here. Why?

Bidding: North opens the bidding 2, and East overcalls 3. South raises to 3 and there is not much North can do but pass. I looks like all missing values are sitting over his K and North has bid all his values.

Made 4 — NS +170

Play: On the play here, knowing all values are in East hand, declarer wins the club return and gets to the dummy twice on hearts to finesse twice for the K, pitching a club, making 4.
