  1. Two places to play

I don't expect the shown bidding to occur often for two reasons. One, with four s, South might push the bidding to 3 either right away or once E/W get into the bidding, and two, East might feel like they are too weak to compete. However, the bidding shown illustrates several valuable bidding concepts. North has a normal 1 opening and South will have the first bidding decision. Regular readers of my analysis are aware of the concept of a Mixed Raise, which refers to a four card raise, with about 7-9 HCP. However, a Mixed Raise should usually have some shortness, i.e. should evaluate to better than the HCP would indicate, so that the four card support has more value. A 4333 hand is really poor to call a Mixed Raise, and given the scattered "Quacks", I think most experts would settle for a simple raise to 2 with the South hand. It's not as clear whether South should compete to 3 if the bidding later gets competitive.

Over 2, West has a hand that might compete in balancing seat, but with North still unlimited, it would be a bit of a gamble to bid directly over 2. If West passes and North does also, it might at first seem that East has an automatic pass, holding only 5 HCP. However East knows that West has some good values and probably wasn't able to bid due to holding length. The danger on the hand is that West has a four card suit and is 4243 or 4333 and E/W end up playing a 4-3 fit at the three level. It almost never pays to let the opponents play in a known fit at the two level when non vulnerable at matchpoints, and I like the aggressive action for East to double. The general principle is to be pushy to get into the bidding when you are short in the opponents suit and they have a known fit, particularly in balancing seat.

If East does venture a double, it might seem that West should automatically bid s, but West has a better option. Most experts will play that 2NT shows two places to play on this auction. Holding both s and s, this is especially appealing, as E/W will always end up playing s when they have a fit there. (If East bids 3 denying a four card suit, West can be certain that East has four s.) It will often be the case that a balancing seat double doesn't have the expected support for an unbid major, so West is covering for East holding a 2344 or 13(54) type of hand. Assuming you are playing 2NT shows this, East can and should bid his lowest four card suit (s) and West corrects to 3 showing both red suits. East can now happily bid 3. Notice also that West should not bid game despite holding a good hand, as it should be clear on the bidding that E/W don't have the values for that, as East didn't double 1 originally.

East will be unlikely to find the anti-percentage play in s of playing to the King on the first round, especially with North opening the bidding, but should easily make nine tricks anyway. Any South who goes up with the Ace will allow 10 tricks to be made for an E/W top. 3 will only go down one trick, so if E/W bid 3, N/S will need to bid 3 to maximize their result. Off one in 3 won't be great for N/S though, as many E/W pairs will let N/S play quietly in 2 and make.

E/W are most likely to play in 2 on this hand, as N/S will be hard pressed to compete. The East hand is a poor 2 opening, even given the friendly vulnerability, as the hand has a poor suit and a side four card major, albeit also a poor suit. The South hand is close to an opening bid, and for those who open light or play a strong system, it will be an automatic 1 opening. If South does open, West will bid 2, and it isn't clear where the contract will end. N/S might end up playing 2NT, or E/W might be in 2 or 2. It's unlikely that N/S can arrange to play 2 doubled, as East will surely pull this to 2. Assuming that South passes originally, the bidding is likely to go something like what is shown. North will want to double 2 for penalties, but most pairs will not play a double on this sequence as penalty, with most using it as a Support Double(s) or perhaps a "Snapdragon" or "Rosenkranz" double. In any case, East won't be happy with the bidding, and will either have to grimace and pass 2, or grimace and bid 2. Should North act over 2? What would a double here show? A double should probably suggest defense against both red suit contracts, which North doesn't really have, but a case can be made for double being purely competitive. With two honors in s, I don't think it's the worst bid in the world for North to compete to 2. The vulnerability is worrisome, but South won't have overcalled with a poor suit, and thus the opponents are unlikely to be able to double 2 even if one of them has a four card suit.

It turns out that if North competes to 2, this will make, thanks in part to the lucky layout in the suit, but it isn't clear that declarer will get the hand right, particularly if West leads a high . A contract will also be tricky for East, especially if South leads a low and North wins and continues with a low . Declarer is in danger of losing up to four tricks, and has three unavoidable losers in s and s. Overall, any plus score for E/W is likely to be a good result.

E/W will quietly play 2 at most tables. As it happens, 4 can make and nine tricks will be the limit of the hand in a contract, but it's hard to see how E/W can end up playing s. After East bids 2, West is close to strong enough to bid again, but with a poor five card suit, and a poor stopper, bidding again would be aggressive. If West does bid, 2NT looks best, and East is good enough to bid 3, but this seems an unlikely way for E/W to get to the double dummy best contract. With limited communication to the West hand, it's hard to see how declarer can make a tenth trick in a contract unless the defense errs. Let's say that South starts with a and North wins the first two rounds of the suit and continues with s. Declarer can win and lead a , hoping to sneak a trick with the King, but as South holds both honors, this won't work. South should win the Ace, and if they continue with s, declarer will win the King and take two finesses in trump, losing one to go with three minor suit losers. If instead South continues s, declarer might ruff in dummy, and if North overruffs, East will also overruff and can end up avoiding a trump loser this way. Of course, North should know the distribution based on South's lead and signals in the suit, but might still go wrong. If South leads a after winning the Ace, this will give declarer the most problems, as declarer will have to decide how to play the suit. If declarer plays a to the 10, this will be a disaster, as South will win the Jack, and no matter what suit they exit, East will be stuck in their hand and will end up losing a second trick. Most reasonable lines of play in a contract will lead to 10 tricks. I expect a lot of +140 scores for E/W, and anything other than that should score well for one side or the other.

E/W will not have an easy time getting to the right spot on this hand. Even though 6 is about a 50% slam, just ending up in s will take some effort. Of course, if West ends up declaring a NT contract, it is likely to work out well for E/W as North is unlikely to find the lead of the Ace. After East bids 2, some pairs will be able to raise right away with the West hands, but for most, 2 will be the correct bid. East can rebid 3 or might try 2NT (a fairly famous world class player once stated that three small is a stopper!) If East does bid 3, then West can bid 3, a bid which most experts know as a "punt", indicating no clear direction (If West really had s at this point they would bid 3NT.) East can punt back with 3, though it would be a better bid if they had a doubleton honor. If West bids 3NT at this point, North should realize that E/W have an iffy stopper and either of them might have a singleton King. If North chooses a to lead, the Ace would be an excellent choice. The general idea is that when the opponents bidding indicates that they have a weakness in a suit, it is often right to lead a high honor in that suit (Ace or King) rather than making your usual length lead. Of course, if East declares 3NT, South will certainly lead a , and unless N/S somehow block the suit, the defense will quickly take the first five tricks. A contract is much better for E/W. 11 tricks are virtually certain and a 12th trick depends on little more than the finesse. On the actual hand, the trump break will be a little annoying, but with North having a doubleton , all will be well, and declarer should have no problems bringing home 12 tricks. This might turn out to be a little disappointing as those who play 3NT declared by West will have ten tricks on a low lead even if they don't take the finesse and end up with 12 or 13 tricks. +630 will still be good enough to outscore those who play in 5s and are a +620, a somewhat unfair result for those who get to 5.
