  1. Five+ s, tolerance(Snapdragon Double )
  2. Guarantees four card support
  3. Weak hand that desires to compete somewhere (Good/Bad 2nt)

I expect East will declare a partial at most tables. Both the East hand and the South hand might be opened by those who use light opening bids, but will be passed at the majority of the tables. West has a normal 1 opener and North has a very questionable overcall. The two reasons to bid with the North hand are the favorably vulnerability, and the secondary support for both majors. If North passes, E/W might get to play without any interference, but South might also compete if 2 gets passed around to them. Assuming North overcalls 1 and East bids 1, South has a chance to utilize the bridge convention with the coolest name ever, the Snapdragon Double. Yes, it's a cool name, and no, I have no idea what the etymology of it is. A Snapdragon Double is used when your opponents have bid two suits and your partner has overcalled in a suit. It shows length in the unbid suit (at least five) and "tolerance" for partner's overcalled suit. The definition of tolerance can change by both partnership agreement, or perhaps vulnerability, with some requiring three small, or honor doubleton, and others simply requiring any doubleton. In any case, South has the perfect hand for it, not having enough strength to want to bid 2 directly. West can bid 2, promising four of them (assuming a redouble would show three card support.) North knows that N/S have at least a nine card fit and wants to compete, but has a really weak hand in the context of their prior bidding. Many experts use something known as "Good/Bad 2NT" in competitive auctions to handle this sort of situation. Under this agreement, a direct 3 or 3 bid shows a good hand, and North bids 2NT followed by 3 or 3 to show a weaker hand that wants to compete. (Note some pairs reverse the meaning, using a direct bid to show a weak hand. This is something you should discuss with your partners if you are using "Good/Bad 2NT". You should also discuss the sequences where 2NT means something else, e.g. two places to play.) On this hand, East also knows his side has a nine card fit and should just bid 3 directly, before N/S can work out where their fit is. It turns out that the E/W hands fit really well together and 4 will make, losing only three minor suit tricks, but it's hard to see how E/W can bid game.

  1. Denies a stopper

Yes, I know, you're staring at the bidding diagram and asking if you really see South opening 1 and West overcalling 1NT. Let me explain. First, I expect many bidding sequences to be possible, with most leading to 3NT by West with some sequences requiring a little faith by East or West (e.g. p-1-2-3-p-3NT or 1-x-1-3-p-3NT) The presented bidding auction while showing somewhat unusual choices for South and West at the start illustrates some important bidding concepts, while getting to the same final contract. Would I really open the South hand? At favorable vulnerability, I think it's a good choice, and I expect many declarer would take the aggressive action at any seat and vulnerability. And, if South does open 1, I would indeed bid 1NT with the West hand, though it admittedly isn't perfect. Double, 1, pass might all be choices some Wests would make. Over 1NT, North's 2 bid is non-forcing. Normally new suits by responder are always forcing but the one exception is when the opponents have shown a strong hand, most often by overcalling 1NT. Some pairs will use their usual "Strong NT defense" after a 1NT overcall, others will just bid naturally, but in either case, North should double with any good hand, so that bidding always shows a poor hand or a lot of distribution. If North does bid 2, then East should be thinking of game, since West should have a solid 1NT overcall at this vulnerability, and West has help for the suit and a source of tricks in s. Yes, 3NT will go down opposite some perfectly normal West hands, but inviting a NT game when you have a six card suit is a little strange, and East probably won't have a way to invite on this auction anyway. East's 3NT bid, assuming E/W are playing Lebensohl (with "Fast Denies") should deny a stopper. West is known to have a definite stopper, so it is the suit that E/W worry about. West will, of course, but a little worried about the suit, but will be pretty happy with their stopper. East has West covered in s, and with an easy trick to set up, 3NT will make without issues.

E/W should get to 4 at most tables, but West's hand will be awkward to bid at their second chance, unless South helps out with a 2 overcall. Most experts will stay away from a five card overcall at the two level with extra values, and this is particularly true when both opponents have already had a chance to bid and even more so when your second longest suit is one of the opponents' suits. If South overcalls 2 anyway, then West can make an easy Support Double(s) showing their three card suit, planning to later rebid s, to show their extra strength and extra length. If South instead passes, North is in a bit of a quandary. The hand looks too strong to just bid 2, and indeed this might be the final contract if that's what North chooses. However, it's also troublesome to have to rebid 3 on such a poor suit and with a hand that looks like it will play very well in a contract. Raising to 2 on a three card suit and an unbalanced hand is a common expert choice, but in this case, West has the strength to raise to 3, and doing that on a three card suit is much more questionable. 3 might be the least of evils but it's an important lesson that South making a two level overcall actually helps the opponents in the bidding, as is often the case when you overcall in the cheapest available suit. Allowing the opponents to make a Support Double or redouble is one of the biggest drawbacks to bidding over a response to an opening bid by the opponents.

If West rebids 3, East has just enough to bid again, thanks to the good support. 3 should probably show a six card or a much better five card suit here, but East might not have a lot of choices. Very well established partnerships might have the agreement that 3 is a checkback bid for support, as West can hardly have a four card suit, having not bid 2 at their second bid, but this is some pretty deep bidding theory and most will not be able to bid 3 with any assurance here. If East bids 3NT this will of course be a disaster as the opponents will take the first five tricks and the bad breaks in the other suit will likely lead to down two. A contract will be trickiest if South leads a high and then switches to a red suit. On a switch, declarer should probably finesse, rather than playing for both s and s to be breaking. A switch is the trickiest and some careful play will be required as declarer must ruff a to avoid a second loser and the communication on the hand will get a little tricky. If South just leads two top s, it's easy for declarer. After ruffing a and cashing two top trump, declarer can lead a to the Ace, pull one more round of trump and then duck a to North, and declarer won't even have to take the finesse.

  1. Five card raise to 4, constructive hand

If N/S are able to keep West from bidding, they might be allowed to play 4, but with West holding a 7-4 hand with the "boss" suit, this looks a little unlikely. West is facing poor vulnerability and doesn't have a great suit, so the best chance for N/S is to get the bidding up quickly. Some Norths will consider opening 1NT. Certainly it is ok to open 1NT with 5422 shape and with a five card major. However, in this case, so much strength is concentrated in the suit, one of the doubletons is weak and there are no rebid problems, so it looks best to open 1. This will certainly be the more popular choice. If the K were in s instead, I would open 1NT. Assuming North opens 1, what should South do? A jump to 4 shows five card suit, but should show a weak hand, with no interest in slam even opposite 18+ HCP, and limited defense (Typically 0-5 HCP). The South hand is way too strong for that. Some pairs will use a forcing NT followed by a jump to 4 for this hand, but this approach has several flaws. Others might use a Bergen Raise if it's available, but the hand is really too strong for that with the fifth trump and an outside five card suit. Many experts use the agreement shown in the bidding diagram. A jump to 3NT showing a five card raise to the four level but with more like 6-8 HCP, often with a second side suit. This is hardly a universal agreement, as the jump to 3NT has some other valuable uses as well. Even with that agreement, allowing South to get to the four level as quickly as possible, it looks like West will be bidding 4. The West hand is just too good and might make 4 opposite even a very modest hand by East. In fact, East has basically just the Ace and still 4 needs only a 2-1 trump break and will make even with some 3-0 breaks. North can't really double 4 despite holding slight extra values, but South might be tempted holding two Kings opposite an opening bid. However, when a hand is known to be very distributional, only Aces are full value on defense, and South should realize this. South might pass, hoping to beat 4 but not wanting to double, or can look at the favorable vulnerability and sacrifice at the five level, hoping that 4 is a maker. Playing IMPS, bidding on looks right, but at matchpoints, it isn't as clear. If South does bid on, they should bid 5, so that North has a better idea what to do if E/W bid 5. As it happens, E/W can't really double 5 and can't bid on either, so 5 may go quietly down one undoubled. Both 4 and 4 make easily, so any pair allowed to play their game at the four level will get a great score.
