  1. The Law: 9 trump & 6-10 points

This week starts off with a competitive bidding deal, the bread and butter of duplicate bridge.

Bidding: North with 12 high card points , 2½ Quick Tricks and a good rebid opens the bidding 1, South with 9 hcp and 10 support points might treat this a s limit raise bid if the J were in another suit, South bids 2. West with an opening hand of 12 hcp and 6 losers bids 3. North with 8 losers has bid his hand (values and length) and passes, leaving the decision to compete to South. Some with South's hand might pass, but in the auction here South competes to 3.

Play: As you would suspect West leads 5 on opening lead which West wins with the Q (showoff) and returns the 10 hoping for a heart ruff. This deal might be played out a number of ways, but in the play here declarer with control of hearts and clubs leads a second diamond to setup a diamond ruff.

  1. argh!
  2. Negative Double
  3. double argh!

Another tricky competitive deal.

Bidding: West with 14 high card points but just 5 losers opens the bidding 1. North makes a weak jump overcall of 2 which jams the bidding. East doesn't really have the values for 3 hearts, thus, in the auction here chooses to make a Negative Double for hearts.¹ South raises North's spade preempt to 4 effectively taking away all of the competitive bidding space. Even with a void in spades about all West can do is bid 5.

¹ About the only way to reach slam of 6 is for East to consider his shortness in clubs and assume a fit in hearts in which case East with 12 support points for hearts will bid 3 and it is easy for West, playing with a 30 point deck (voids in spades) to reach 6.

  1. preemptive

This seems to be the week for tricky competitive deals.

Bidding: South with 14 high card points but just 4 losers opens the bidding 1. West with an opening hand could easily overcall 2 but West knows where he wants to play this contract bids 4.¹ North bids 4. South with just 4 losers might try for slam, but there are a great many unknowns and West has taken away exploration space for slam.

¹ West must be careful a bid of 5 will most likely push North/South into 6.

  1. Two Over One Game Force
  2. Roman Keycard Minorwood (for )
  3. 2 keycards w/o Q

Everyone should get to some slam on this deal.

Bidding: East opens the bidding 1 and West makes a 2/1 Game Force bid of 2. East bids his shape with 2 and West bids 3. East bids 3NT and West has some options. With a self sustaining club suit of AKQ107532, many might just bid 6NT, but in the auction here 4 should be some form of asking bids RKC Minorwood or Gerber , depending on partnership agreements. With partner holding 2 keycards (aces) West bids 6. East might now convert to 6NT.

Made 6 — NS −1370

Play: Play is not hard with double stoppers in the red suits, just loose the A. With something other than a spade lead, there is a play for 7 with declarer West ruffing a heart and forcing someone to hold a diamond stopper at the end.

Fred Ferguson Hand Analysis
WestNorthEastSouth
   Pass
1NTPassPass2
Pass4All pass 

One final competitive deal ... this deal will cause some controversy.

Bidding: West with 16 high card points and a balanced hand opens the bidding 1NT and most with North's hand will pass. East passes and South says hmmmmm! where are the values on this deal? North must have values and no opportunity to bid, South balances with 2. North does not have to continue the bidding but if partner has 5 hearts North has a 9-card fit and 18 support points for hearts.

Play: There is not much to the play of this deal all missing values are held by West. Declarer South makes a valiant effort to get to his hand in first in diamonds then clubs.
