All pass   
  1. forcing or natural
  2. Takeout Double
  3. longest suit

This week starts off with an interesting deal. Some tables might actually pass this deal out, but I'm betting if North with 11 high card points , 2 Quick Tricks and a good rebid does not open this deal 1, East with 11 hcp, 2 QT and 7 losers will open it 1.

Bidding: In the auction here, North passes and East opens the bidding 1. Some might overcall 1 with South's hand, but overcalling with a bad suit is just not good bridge and K9863 is not a good, South passes. West responds 1NT (either forcing or natural) and North who passed originally, backs into the auction making a Takeout Double. East is now off the hook and having bid all his values passes and South now bid his spades with 2. West might consider bidding diamonds at 2, but not at 3 and with East limiting his hand with a pass, West passes.

Made 3 — NS +140

Play: On opening lead of the 9 from West declarer (South) jumps up with dummy's A and goes after trump leading the J trying to avoid a heart ruff. West wins the Q and returns the 8 which declarer wins in hand with K. Crosses to the A in dummy and leads another spade 4, which East wins with the A and then cashes the winning Q, good defense. East/West is still entitled to the A holding the contract to making 3.

  1. opening 1 causes rebid issues

A lot of weak auctions this week, maybe a theme going here. Like Board 1 not too long ago tables might pass this deal out, but most modern standard methods would open East hand with 12 high card points , 2 Quick Tricks and 7 losers , even with the suspect 2 points in the Q, 1 if not 1.

Bidding: East deals and opens the bidding 1 because opening the bidding 1 provides potentially horrible rebid issue in response to 1 or 1, but with an opening bid of 1, East has an easy rebid of 2. South overcalls 1 and West has the option of bidding 2, but holding South's hearts KJ965 West passes, waiting to seen what happens in this deal, North/South just might get into real trouble. North responds 1NT and when South passes, West again considers bidding 2 but there is just no clear answer, so West passes 1NT by North.

Down 1 — NS −100

Play: The defense on this deal is superb. East knows from the auction West must hold South's hearts, otherwise, North would have supported hearts, so East opens withe the Q which gets ducked around. East shifts to the K and as diamonds are ducked by N/S continues diamonds eventually setting up an entrance to West hand with A to the 9. Now declarer still must lose a club to the J or two tricks to hearts.

Here is a relatively weak deal that OH! just happens to make 6NT.

Bidding: East deals and South with 12 high card points and 6 losers , but no aces, opens the bidding 1. West overcalls 2, not the prettiest of bids, but ok. North responds 2 (forcing) and South has no bid other than 3. The 3 takes away North's opportunity for a Western cuebid of 3 and as such can bid 3, which is an under value bid for the 16 hcp North holds, or bid 4 or 3NT, as in the auction here. I don't know that either is the right bid, but 3NT does allow South to correct to 4 if so desired.

Made 6 — NS +690

Play: In the play East dutifully leads a club which West ducks around to the Q. From this point it is simply a matter of running off diamond tricks to see what is discarded. West bid of 2 really gives away the placement of the K.

  1. semi-forcing
  2. weak response

Continuing in out theme of weak deals, this is a deal that will be very easy for East/West to over bid.

Bidding: East opens the bidding 1 and West after initially passing, with just 9 high card points (not really enough to bid 2, but many might consider 2 as artificial anyway) responds 1NT as semi forcing. East with no extra values and the A not working (i.e., not in combination with other honors in long suits) just bids 2. With 2 East has limited his hand, if West raises to 3, East might take West for a stronger hand and even bid 4. After East bids 2 West should just pass.

Play: On opening lead South leads the 7, who doesn't like to lead shortness. North wins the AK and gives South a ruff in clubs. South still has the right to win the A and the K holding the contract to making 2.
