This week starts off with testy auction.

Auction: North deals and with 12 high card points , 6 losers and a good 6-card heart suit AKJ752 opens the bidding 1. Some with East hand might make a takeout for the minors such as an unusual 2NT. If East peeps with any kind of overcall in this auction, North/South will never get to play 4. In the auction here East with 5-4 in the minors first passes. With better values, enough to make two bids, South might respond 1 (which would cause problems for West) but with just 5 hcp and 8 support points for hearts, in the auction here South bids 2.

Now the fun begins, West overcalls 2, North shows better hand bidding 3 and East doubles (East is not certain where this auction is going but with two aces needs to take some action. South bids 4 and West doubles. East knowing this has to be a distributional deal corrects to 4. Now South doubles and North corrects to 5. When West doubles 5, East decides to sit for this double.

  1. correct bid is 2NT

This deal is about reaching the right/wrong contract.

Auction: South with 13 high card points and 7 losers opens the bidding 1. West overcalls 1 and North with 10 hcp and 5 nice hearts AJ97x responds 2. East raises to 2 and South might bid 2NT which would define his hand, but in the auction here overbids his hand with 3. After West passes North takes a preference of diamonds over clubs, 3 does not show any extra values. South's correct bid is 3 an asking bid to see if partner has any help in spades, which will most like lead to 4 or 5. But in the auction here South with the A overbids his hand to 3NT, with only 13 hcp a bad bid.

  1. 20-21 high card points
  2. Stayman
  3. no interest in slam

Choosing the best bid for the right seat. In first seat, I would have no issues opening West hand 1 as West has an easy rebid reversing into hearts 2 to create a forcing auction. But in third seat with a 4-loser hand that does not require much from partner to make game, West needs to think about a better descriptive process.

Auction: In third seat West with 20 hcp opens the bidding 2NT. East bids 3 as Stayman (or Puppet Stayman ) West rebids 3 and East with just 8 support points and what might be a dead Q bids 4.

Play: The play of this deal is not hard, after winning the A, declarer (West) tries to slip the Q through and then still has to lose a spade or maybe a club.

  1. 4SF GF
  2. RKC Blackwood
  3. 2 keycards

Distributional slams are not always easy to bid and distributional grand slams are even harder.

Auction: East with 14 high card points and a two-suited hand of rounds (hearts and clubs) opens the bidding 1 and South with 5 hearts is frozen in the auction. West responds 1. North/South are silent throughout the auction. East rebids 2 and West bids 2 as artificial Fourth Suit Forcing game forcing. East bids out shape of 3 and West rebids spades 3. East agrees on game of 4 and West bids 4NT as Roman Keycard Blackwood. After East shows 2 keycards without the Q, West bids 6. While West is assuming a source of tricks in diamonds, there is no way of knowing East the right cards K and singleton diamond to bid 7.

  1. Fourth Suit Forcing

Neither bidding nor playing 4 should be difficult on this deal.

Auction: South deals and opens the bidding 1. West's values and distribution are messed up so West passes. North responds 1 and South rebids 2. North's bid of 3 is artificial as Fourth Suit Forcing as game forcing. In response to Fourth Suit Forcing South bids 3 to show three spades and North bids 4.

Made 4 — NS +420

Play: As long as declarer (North) plays the spades right making 4 is not hard. After winning the opening club with the A in hand without the intermediate spade honors, North cashes the A dropping the K (or Q) and leads up to the J9 in dummy and when East plays the 8 declarer covers with the 9 in dummy.
