Fred Ferguson Hand Analysis

 PassPass11
Pass1Pass1NT2
All pass   
  1. see write-up
  2. no reason to bid 1

Although the double dummy (DD) analysis says North/South can make 3NT, this will be a hard deal to bid game and even harder to take more than 8 tricks.

Bidding: North deals and with 10 high card points and really nice diamond suit AKJ109 would like to bid, but with 8½ losers passes. East with 11 hcp and 8 losers would also like to bid, but in second seat with a crappy diamond suit 76543 also passes.¹ South with 13 hcp and 8½ losers finally opens the bidding 1. North responds 1 and East is frozen out of the auction. South rebids 1NT showing 12-14 hcp balanced² and North might consider bidding 2NT, but South with only 13 hcp and soft values in queens will pass 2NT in any event.

¹ In last week's write up Larry Cohen used the term "a normal modern-day opening bid" for a hand with 11 hcp, 2 Quick Tricks and a nice 5-card major AJ1087. East's hand here, as did Larry's hand, meets the Average Hand requirement of the new ACBL Open Chart (effective November 22, 2018) and the Rule of 19. I have previously referenced the new ACBL Convention Charts in Board 2 from 3/12 and Board 4 from 3/26. While I think someone at ACBL is playing a few cards short of a full deck, we are going to have to learn how to play with these new charts.
² As a passed hand North cannot have a hand big enough to bid 1 and want to hear a 1 response (see Walsh (conventional responses) ).

Made 2 — NS +120

Play: On the opening lead of the 4 (seems right) from West, East cashes the AK and returns spade. West now has to hold the protected Kx and his spades. If declarer (South) can see all cards South might be able to force West to pitch cards on diamonds set up heart tricks for 9 tricks, but in 3NT that is not as likely play as South taking a club finesse.

  1. 15-17 high card points
  2. Stayman
  3. Quantitative notrump bids

On the bad side, this deal might be hard for East/West to stay out of slam, but quoting Monty Python "Always look on the bright side ... " the play of this deal sets up a pseudo squeeze.

Bidding: West deals and with 16 hcp and a balanced hand opens the bidding 1NT. North/South are silent throughout. With 4-4 in the majors East bids 2 as Stayman and West responds 2, no 4-card major. East with 15 hcp and really good control cards bid of 4NT is Quantitative inviting to 6NT slam. West with maximum values is quick to accept.

The problem with this contract is that with just 31 hcp between them the partnership does not have enough hcp to win 12 tricks based on strength alone and with no 5-card suit the partnership has no source of tricks to develop.

Down 1 — NS +100

Play: First CAUTION must be given in the play of this deal as transportation is critical. The AK are needed to enter declarer (West) hand and the A is critical to enter dummy (East) hand. Through Trick 5 West has set up the squeeze, getting the count right by ducking a diamond trick (but North does not fall for leading a second heart) and setting up the 8 as a threat card. South must recognize he must hold all 4 remaining spades (East did go through Stayman in the auction) and be willing to dump the QJ and North must hold the K as an entry and the 10. West plays out the cards and pitches a heart as North will hold the 10 South holds the J10 to the bitter end, down 1.

  1. 1NTF
  2. highly invitational
  3. looking for game
  4. gulp!

This seems the week for the unusual slam deals Board 3 created a pseudo squeeze for slam and here on Board 5 we have a situational slam.

Bidding: East with an awesome 19 high card points and just 4 losers opens the bidding 1. Give East the Q and maybe open 2. West with 10 hcp responds 1NT Forcing and East makes a jump rebid of 3. West makes a valiant effort with 4 to try for some other contract, some with East hand might make a try for notrump, but in the auction here, East bids 4.

Play: With the opponent's strength in this deal sitting underneath South's AQ, I don't think anyone would fault South for not finding an A opening lead. Once South leads anything else declarer (East) can cash the AK dropping South's Q10 and play 4 diamond tricks pitching his 108 on dummy's AQ, making 6.

  1. invitational (sets trump)
  2. game forcing
  3. control bid (no diamond fit)
  4. control bid
  5. Roman Keycard Minorwood
  6. 2 keycards & Q

This deal presents some interesting challenges, but everyone should get to some slam. The bidding might be as simple as ... but a little effort will go a long way

1 - 1
2 - 3NT
6NT

Bidding: In the auction here after 1 - 1, West with 17 length points and 6 losers should jump to 3. East bid of 3 is game forcing and shows a better hand than just bidding 3NT. 3 and 3 are control bids and 4 is RKC Minorwood and East in response (3 steps) shows 2 keycards and the Q. West bids 6 and East converts to 6NT.

Made 7 — NS −1470

Play: While double shows dummy a grand slam of 7 and 7NT is makeable, it is not really biddable as in the auction East/West can't find a second source of tricks (and in fact, requires working spades out correctly) and West's bid of 3 limits values to some 15-18 points.¹

  1. game forcing
  2. 5-card heart suit

Misfits deals are not easy to bid.

Bidding: West with a nice two suited hand opens the bidding 1, some might consider opening 1 and rebidding clubs, but with 15 high card points West does not have a namby-pamby hand. East responds 1 and some with West hand and 6 losers might Reverse into 2, but in the auction here, being on the conservative side, West respond 2 waiting. East bids 2 which is about 90% game forcing. West bids 3 and East bids 3 which now shows a 5-card heart suit and West bids 4.

Play: With spades as an unbid suit spades would be normal lead but with East/West showing a second fit in diamonds South's lead of the 8 is looking for a setting trick. Declarer (East) wins the opening lead in dummy and immediately finesses for the K. East cannot set up clubs without giving North/South a chance to win two spades, making 4.
