I hope everyone had great holidays. This week starts off ... well it starts off with a nice vigorous auction.

Bidding: After 2 passes South with 13 length points opens the bidding 1 (this is not a light opening), South has a nice 6-card diamond suit and two doubletons (considered shortness) where shape contributes to a 6 loser hand. West with 15 high card points might consider doubling first - move club values to hearts and a double might be right - but in the auction here overcalls 1. North makes a Negative Double to show values and hearts. East makes an easy raise to 2 and South rebids diamonds 3. Everything is logical up to this point but the auction should now get competitive. After south's bid of 3 North should compete and East holding K8xx knows partner is on shortness and J109x will fill in spades so competes to 4. It reasonable for both N/S to compete to 5 and E/W to compete to 5.

Down 1 — NS +100

Play: double dummy says 5 can be made, but it is tricky, hearts must come in and the K must be finessable. In 5 N/S easible win 2 hearts and the A, down 1.

  1. slam try
  2. RKC Blackwood
  3. 0 keycards

The underlining theme of this slam is trusting the math.

Bidding: West opens the bidding in second seat 1 (full opening hand) and East responds 1. North/South are silent throughout. After West rebids 2 East make a game forcing bid of 2 (responder's Reverse ). West showing no interest in slam rebids 3. E/W are already in a game forcing auction so East bid of 4 is a slam try (of some kind), but West continues to deny slam with 4. Not finished yet East tries for slam with 4NT as Roman Keycard Blackwood for hearts and West responds 5 (or 5) showing no keycards.

Now the math ... East knows he holds 19 support points with two doubletons opposite partner's opening values 12 high card points and the partnership does not hold the A. So of the missing points for kings and queens West must hold good good honor values in other suits. So if West holds the KQ or just the K and South holds the A there should be a good fit in other suits and bids 6.

Play: East (declarer gets the lead of the 10 winning in dummy with the K and sets up diamonds immediately crossing to hand with hearts and leads up to the KQxx. When South wins the A everything falls into place.

This a wacky deal ... while I would love to see a minor suit slam in clubs, its not going to happen.

Bidding: North deals and with 10 high card points passes. East with 18 hcp opens 1. South passes, West passes and North balances with 1. As West is a passed hand, East chooses to rebid 2 showing Reverse values figuring he can always run to clubs if need. West raises to 3 and when South doubles back in with a reopening double West makes a preemptive bid or 4.

Play: The play of this deal is not as wacky as the bidding. On the lead of a spade and continuation of spades West can be tapped in trumps setting up a extra trump trick for N/S but that is double dummy play.

  1. Jacoby transfer -- 5+ H

While the minor suit slam on Board 5 was not biddable, this minor suit slam should be biddable.

Bidding: South opens the bidding 1NT and North 2 transfers into hearts. North's rebid of 3 shows a second suit and is game forcing. South shows a fit for diamonds with 4 (many would consider this Roman Keycard Minorwood ). In the auction here 4NT is ace asking and 5 shows 2 aces (this is old school bidding). Using 4 as RKC Minorwood, the partnership can not only find out about the two missing aces but also the KQ and they partnership might get to 7.
