All pass   
  1. 15-17 high card points
  2. Stayman (temporizes)
  3. forcing slam invitational
  4. natural
  5. RKC Blackwood (for clubs)
  6. 2 keycards w/o Q
  7. 7 or 7NT

This week starts off with a discussion of a bidding agreement not often in use today: Minor Suit Stayman (MSS). Playing MSS, by general consensus, 2 in response to 1NT shows length in both minor suits, and might be employed in combination with two-suit major suit transfers. The beauty of MSS is that it allows for weak holdings and for strong holdings. After 1NT - 2, with a weak holding responder would pass any rebid by opener, while further bidding by responder shows a strong slam invitational hand. BUT today, most partnerships play other meanings for the response of 2, typically as either a transfer or relay to clubs. So how does responder show the strong hand?

Bidding: will probably go jumping around in 4NT or 6NT on this deal, but such auctions will not produce the grand slam ... and the field will be in 6NT on this deal.

In the auction here using modern standard methods after North opens 1NT with 15 hcp and a balanced hand , South first forces the auction with 2, temporizes as Stayman. When North responds 2, no 4-card major, South confidently bids 3 showing the strong slam invitational hand. The 3 bid typically shows a 5-card suit, but North's denial of a 4-card major defines length in the minors. North's rebid of 4 confirms a fit in clubs. South's bid of 4NT is Roman Keycard Blackwood for clubs and North responds 5 showing 2 keycards, specifically the A and K, and NOT the Q. South can bid 7 knowing fits in both minors (as a source of tricks) and with all 5 keycards and the Q. Any 7-level contract will be a top or near top on this board, it is not necessary for South to bid 7NT.

Play: While South hoped North would have 5 of a minor in this auction, with clubs split 4-4-3-2 everything is ok winning 2 natural spades, 2 natural hearts, 4 diamonds, 3 natural clubs and ruffing 1 heart and 1 spade for 13 tricks.

  1. easy rebid of 2NT
  2. Michaels
  3. 5 losers

Many will open South's hand 1NT in which case West will over call 2 and North/South will be lucky to find a heart fit let alone game in hearts. With 17 high card points and 6 losers South has an easy rebid, so in the auction here opens 1.

Bidding: South opens the bidding 1 with the plans on rebid to bid 2NT (a little stretch but not much). West bids 2 as a Michaels Cuebid (spades and an undisclosed minor), North passes and East bids 2. South can now show his values with 3. West with just 5 losers rebids 3 and North competes to 4. East with a high honor (ace or king) might compete to 4, but not with just 2 red queens and a red jack, knowing partner is holding the black suits (spades and clubs).

Made 5 — NS +650

Play: West does good not to lead a spade. But West is marked with having spades and the lead of the singleton A also marks him with holding clubs. So on the play of this hand, declarer (South) finesses East for the Q and West for the K endplaying West to either lead away from the K or lead a club to the winning J in dummy.

Vulnerability is your friend!

Bidding: Some holding North's hand in first seat with 11 high card points , 6 diamonds and 7 losers might open 1. Some holding East hand in second seat with 11 hcp, 6 hearts and 7 losers might open 1. But if North does not open and East does not open, then surely South in third seat will open 2. In the auction here, after South opens 2 and it is passed around, East with favorable vulnerability balances with 3 and North competes to 3.

   1
Pass21Pass32
Pass43Pass44
Pass4NT5Pass56
Pass6All pass 
  1. 2/1 GF
  2. 5-3 fit in hearts
  3. control
  4. control
  5. RKC Blackwood
  6. 2 keycards w/o Q

This should be an easy slam.

Bidding: South deals and opens the bidding 1. North responds 2, 2/1 Game Forcing. South raises hearts to 3 which shows extra values (not bidding 4). North bids 4, probably a control, shows extra values, South bids 4, clearly showing slam. North bids 4NT as Roman Keycard Blackwood for hearts and South bids 5 showing 2 keycards without the Q.
