A simple Texas Transfer auction. No one has a semblance of a bid until West opens a strong notrump, and then East has enough power and hearts to insist on game. Often it is better for the strong hand to declare the contract, but here it does not matter. The opening lead cannot help the defenders take any more tricks than they are entitled to -- one club only when the ace is onside, and one diamond, that's all, folks! A spade is discarded on the third diamond.

Simple, and yet making five will be slightly above average, when it should really be the flattest of boards.

West will make an invitational jump in hearts whether relying primarily on the Losing Trick Count (six losers, all primes [so prime that you can reasonably reduce to five losers]) or point count (15 highs, three distributional, and at least one quality point for three aces). Actually, 4 would not be bad, or even 4, a Splinter bid. Why let partner pass when you really just want to bid game?

When trumps break, all declarer has to do is play spades for one loser. That can be accomplished either by playing toward the queen or by leading the queen first, then low toward the remaining A9x after the queen loses on the first round to the king. If the 8 were present, then leading first the queen, then the ten, would be the percentage play. Those spot cards make a difference in the correct play!

When West makes a vulnerable overcall and North shows hearts, East has no intention of ever playing short of game. It would be nice to have the opportunity to show clubs -- and possibly reach a slam -- but when North raises diamonds, Spades will just have to be trump. Honor the quality of the vulnerable overcall!

Can South diagnose the favorable sacrifice? I doubt it, with three potential losing clubs and some likely defense. But the sac is right, while the defensive tricks disappear.

Whee! Everybody has a good hand! Seems like a 50-point deck, with all of that distribution. Singletons, a void, big fits... that usually, and does here, lead to wild and woolly bidding. East perhaps should refrain from bidding 5, but it's right, so how can you complain? The reasons he SHOULD refrain are simple: A "sure" trump trick in spades and an ace, and a partner who could open the bidding. Perhaps 4 can be defeated?

Not today! EW can defeat SLAM, but not a spade game, with zero diamond tricks (yes, we were afraid of that. . . ), and a partner who has vulnerable honors (K is worthless, and so is the Q.

Wild hand. The kind that will have people talking after the session.

5. Good for the goose on board 4? Good enough for South on board 5. Turn about is fair play.

Any other sayings? Seven diamonds and a singleton spade and eager opponents make the save reasonable. Let the opponents make the last guess. If North cannot double 4, then there is not enough defense to beat 4.

South will be pleased that the contract goes down just one -- if North plays his cards right. . .

That is to say, North wins the diamond lead and smashes the A on the table, then leads the J, and there will be four clubs, one diamonds, and two major suit cards, whether a spade and a heart or two hearts. In fact, poor defense (winning the heart king and shifting to the A would qualify).

No interference bid is justified at this vulnerability, so West has a simple raise and Eat a simple game bid. When the hearts behave so well but spades not, EW just barely missed bidding a slam. Plus 650.

North will most of the time get too high by overcalling quacks, but South is missing a spade card to introduce competition via a takeout double. So 2 is likely the final contract, and that fails by just one trick when clubs provide a discard and the likely spade lead costs one.

Those who play negative free bids will feel quite content to bid 2 over the 2 overcall, and West nervously converts to spades. No way that hand is good enough to bid 3. Nope. No way. A good agreement to have AND FOLLOW is that in competition you don't bid with a total misfit. 2, negative free bid or not, should be made with assurance to partner that if a retreat to partner's opening bid suit has to be made, despite not promising a FIT, will have a tolerance for it. Jx is a tolerance for spades, and West is grateful. Well, maybe. You still have to find the T to be happy. Not everyone will be happy if North ducks the lead toward the J3. Rising with the king can help only declarer. Send North a thank-you note if he rises against you.
