  1. Fourth Suit Forcing
  2. spade stopper
  3. natural

This week starts off with a partnership agreement deal. Some partnerships will play that 1 in the auction here is natural and that 2 would be Fourth Suit Forcing , either is ok as long as you have discussed and have a partnership agreement on 4SF. Some partnerships might also play an agreement called XYZ after a 1-level 1 - 1 - 1 auction where 2 would be used as forcing. In the auction here we will keep it simple.

Auction: North deals and with 15 high card points and a semi-balanced hand some might open 1NT to protect the Kx and Kx, but in the auction here with KJ North will treat this hand as 14 hcp open the bidding 1. South with 11 hcp and 6 losers first responds 1 and after opener rebids 1 South treats his hand a forcing hand and bids 1 as Fourth Suit Forcing (4SF). North responds to 4SF with 1NT showing a spade stopper. North jumps to 3 not a s forcing bid (with 4SF the auction is already forcing) but to show a diamond suit. North bids 3NT and South passes.

Made 4 — NS +430

Play: The play of this deal is tricky. Declarer (North) wins the opening spade lead in dummy to make a play on diamonds, only to find out that West holds 4-diamonds. Declarer now makes the winning play shifting to clubs. East has 4 clubs, but declarer can set up clubs before having to cash his last spade.

  1. Weak Two-Bid
  2. nothing extra

This is an interesting deal. West in second seat opens the bidding with a Weak Two-Bid of 2. East with 21 support points for spades, just 4 losers and a void in clubs has some decisions to make.

Auction: West in second seat opens the bidding 2. East with 21 support points and just 4 losers bids 3 to force the auction. West with just 6 high card points rebids 3. Argh! East was hoping for some kind of a better response, anything other than 3. East bids 4.

Play: On the opening lead of the 10, declarer ducks around to the Q. South seeing dummy's diamonds AKQ and knowing a finesse against the Q is on (if required at all) should rise with the A, but in the play here also ducks preserving an unnecessary play against the K. Declarer now has tricks to burn and takes all 13 tricks.

Auction: North opens the bidding 1 and East says WTF, East is frozen out of the auction for now. South responds 1 and North raises to 2. I have talk previously about raising on 3-card suit and use of an agreement to ask partner to further define his hand, but in the auction here East now bids 3 taking away such an option. With East bid of 3, if partner does not have the A, East will have the A, and thus, South's K is a very important holding. South with at least an 8-card fit and with East bids of 3 probably a 9-card fit, and 12 support points bids 4.

Play: With East bid of 3 and club lead, East/West can take the A and two clubs. Please note, on the third club, declarer (South) must trump high with the A and then finesse West for the J.

  1. Splinter

Choosing the right auction.

Auction: South opens the bidding 1 and North responds 1. Some might consider preempting clubs with West hand, but vulnerable and only 6-clubs makes no sense. South with 21 support points rebids 4 as a game forcing Splinter. North makes a courageous move knowing the partnership had a 10-card fit in spades bids 5 asking South about spade honors. South holding 3 of top 4 spade honors bids 6.
