All pass   

N/S will most likely end up in a contract, though some aggressive E/W pairs might bid to 4. I admit that with two Aces, all the HCP in the long suits and good distribution, I would open the East hand, but it won't be everyone's choice. The South hand is a more clear opening bid if East decides to pass. South will overcall 1 or 2 if East opens, and West will double either of these. If South has overcalled 1, then North has a very familiar hand to readers of my analysis, the "Mixed Raise". A Mixed Raise is a hand with four card support of a known five card suit, 7-9 HCP and usually some shortness and some defense. In other words a hand with four card support that is between a weak hand and a limit raise, but not usually 4333. Experts often use a jump cue bid to show this hand opposite an overcall (i.e. the 3 bid shown in the bidding diagram.) Alternatively, North will bid 3 directly if South has overcalled 2. Will E/W be able to compete to the four level? And if they do, will they make? A 4 contract will be easy, as long as declarer plays a double finesse for the QJ, rather than just playing a to the King. A contract will be a little trickier. However, 4 by East will make unless South leads a to the Queen and North switches to a . It looks like bidding to the four level will be difficult in the face of the N/S bidding in s, and I expect 3 to be a common contract. As long as West never leads a , 3 should go down one trick.

N/S should end up in 3NT on this hand, although either partner might end up declaring. South has a normal 1 opening and many North pairs will bid 1 reflexively. However, what will North rebid if South bids 2. On the actual hand, North can rebid 3NT, but if North was stronger, things would get more awkward, and what will . The point here is that when your partner opens a minor and you have a game forcing hand with a four card major and a five card or longer holding in the other minor, it can often be right to bid the other minor first. There will still be time to find a 4-4 major suit fit later. When you have a weaker hand, bidding your major is paramount, but the stronger you are, the more important it is to bid naturally, showing your longer suits first. With a minimum opening bid and a balanced hand, 1 looks ok to me here, as it's unlikely that a slam is the right contract unless South is about to rebid 2. If North does bid 1, then North will end up declaring 3NT. No matter ho declares, the defense will need to get off to a lead to have the best chance. A lead will force declarer to guess s to make more than nine trick, risking their contract in the process. On any other lead, declarer can knock out the Ace and make at least 10 tricks, and might make as many as 11-12 tricks depending on how the play goes when the defense gets in with the Ace. As a lead from both sides is possible, most of the matchpoints will depend on whether declarer decides to play for extra tricks in the suit. At IMPS, +600 would be likely, but at matchpoints, much will depend on how well declarer thinks he can read the opponents discards. +660 will certainly be an excellent result for N/S.

  1. Relay to 2
  2. Semi-forced
  3. 24+ HCP
  4. 5 s, 4s

N/S are likely to get to 4 on this hand. Some might end up too high in 6, though this will be rare, as any pair asking for keycards in s will discover that the Queen of trump is missing as well as an Ace. North is easily strong enough to bid 2, but from there the bidding will diverge depending on the N/S agreements. Some pairs will play that 2 shows an immediate game forcing, holding either an Ace, a King or two Queens. After 2, many experts use an agreement known as the "Kokish Relay". Under this agreement, an immediate 2NT bid shows a minimum NT hand of 22-23 or a "bad" 24 HCP. With a better hand such as the North hand here, the 2 bidder bids 2, forcing their partner to bid 2 unless their partner has an unusual hand of their own. Then a 2NT bid shows that North is balanced with 24+ and allows N/S to use all their normal NT agreements at a low level. Without this agreement, North is forced to jump to show a better hand, and now it gets very awkward for South to show minor suit oriented hands or to make slam decisions without getting too high. The benefits are clearly shown on the actual hand, as South is able to show their 5-4 major suit hand (if they are using Puppet Stayman ) and also deny any slam interest. North can respect South's decision, since North knows that South knows that they have 24+ HCP and therefore, South would surely cue bid with the Ace and would bid 3NT with three or four Queens. If North does forge on by asking for keycards, South will deny the trump Queen, and N/S will end up in 5. Slam can make as it happens, but only if declarer plays to drop the trump Queen rather than finessing. If South didn't have the 10, this would be the only play, but here it is better to play to the Queen and finesse.

If North ends up in a NT contract, East will lead a low and declarer should quickly play the Queen. Not only does this allow an immediate finesse, but when the finesse loses, East will be on the spot, knowing that declarer has the King. Good E/W pairs will know that West should show count on the lead when they can't beat the Queen in dummy, and thus East should work out to play the Ace next. Of course, if E/W are playing standard signals, the suit will be blocked, so only E/W pairs who use upside down signaling will have the maximum success against a NT contract.

  1. Two suiter in s and s, game forcing
  2. Asking for trump honors
  3. One of the top three

Good E/W pairs might be able to bid a grand slam in s on this hand, but 6 is a more likely contract, and some might end up in a disastrous 6. North will open 2 at most tables, and the E/W bidding agreements will immediately come into play. Most experts play that a jump to the four level in a minor over a weak two is a convention known as "Leaping Michaels Cue Bid ". It shows a two suited hand holding the minor suit and the other major and is game forcing, including to game in the minor suit. So, the 4 bid by East on this hand is 100% forcing. South can muddy the waters with a 4 bid, but given that East has forced to game opposite nothing, the West hand is easily worth a bid at the five level. In fact, given that West is looking at the Ace, West should be more worried about missing slam than the five level being too high. A vulnerable Leaping Michaels Cue Bid is a very good hand and East is unlikely to have two other quick losers in addition to the Ace. The singleton is a big asset, especially given the four card trump holding. All in all, I really think West should probably jump to 6, over which East should be able to bid 7 with some confidence. However, even if West only bids 5 as shown in the bidding diagram, East can bid 5NT as the "Grand Slam Force" asking West to bid 7 with two of the top three honors. You might be wondering why East would bother doing this, since they know that West can't have two top honors. Most experts will be able to show that they have one top honor by bidding the cheapest suit at the six level, rather than signing off in their suit. This is a less well known part of the Grand Slam Force, but can be highly useful on hands such as this. Overall, I think good pairs can bid the grand, but it won't happen often.

Should South sacrifice over an E/W slam? As long as South trusts the opponents bidding, I think they should. However, holding the AK, most Souths will be reluctant. East's bidding should make it clear that there are no defensive tricks in s or s, but making a slam level sacrifice at this vulnerability. At this vulnerability it should be clear that a contract will make enough tricks to be worth it if the opponents are making. If the opponents bid to 6 and South bids 6 and East now bids 7, South will be in a quandary. 7 is still likely better than having let 6 play, but South will be less certain that 7 is making if the opponents haven't bid it originally. Any South player who correctly diagnoses to make a high level sacrifice will be well rewarded.
