  1. 15-18 high card points balanced
  2. 2 transfer to hearts

This week starts off with a system bid agreement.

Bidding: North deals and after two passes, South opens the bidding 1. West with 17 hcp, a balanced hand and a club stopper overcalls 1NT. When North passes, most partnerships will play "systems on" and thus, 2 is a transfer to hearts. West acceptance of the transfer of 2 ends the auction.

Made 3 — NS −140

Play: The opening lead shouldn't matters, in the play of this contract. Almost anything North leads either gives away a trick or allows declarer (West) to end play South. In the play here, North leads the 2 which finesses South's K. More importantly it is an entrance to dummy where declarer can start lead on hearts. This deal can be played out any number of ways, but East/West should make 3.

  1. 18-19 high card points balanced
  2. major suit checkback

Lets look at two deals Board 2 and Board 6 where opener has a big hand.

Bidding: In this deal dealer (West) holds 19 hcp and a balanced hand. After 2 passes West opens the bidding 1 with the plan on rebid to jump to 2NT to show the 18-19 hcp balanced hand. East responds 1 and West makes the jump to 2NT. Many might consider rebidding 1 or even 2, but with modern systems the jump to 2NT does not deny 4 spades. East bid of 3 is artificial called major suit check back (like Stayman or even better New Minor Forcing ) asking opener about majors. When West responds 3, East is now free to bid 3NT.

Made 4 — NS −430

Play: This deal can be played out any number of ways and will make 2, 3 or 4 depending on the play. West wins the opening lead in hand with the A (hiding the Q) and leads the K, when North ducks the K, West switches to diamonds. North subsequently wins A and goes back to clubs. North eventually leads spades which South rises with the K setting up extra tricks. If you don't like this play, I don't blame you. You can pick any number of plays, but North should stay on track.

Fred Ferguson Hand Analysis

Play: Once declarer (West) finds the A on trick two T2 and South shows out of hearts the rest is pretty easy. Every thing hinges on the K being "on side" for the finesse.
