Will South lead a diamond or a spade?? Neither opponent has bid diamonds or spades, and it is generally thought a good idea to lead an unbid major. Unlikely that partner will have such good diamonds that the suit will be productive, and South has the spade cards as entries. No, it does seem better to lead the suit in which you actually have the two top honors, coinciding with being in the unbid major.

For those who talk themselves into the spade lead, the sight of dummy and partner's vigorous encouraging signal will give grief to the EW pairs who could not make 3NT with balanced hands and a combined 30 HCP!!

Oh, well, it was a nice try by north to sign off in 3. The alternative opening bid of 1 will run into a 1 overcall and will open the door to a strong jump shift by South into spades, but North will have none of it. So opening 1 will work better, resulting in a spade part score.

Is there a special category of Yarboroughs in which the highest card in the hand is an eight??

Overly aggressive players make a mistake, I think, by opening trash like the South hand. Passing and listening for a while can often improve the accuracy of the bidding. There is no problem describing the hand after first passing.

Another virtue of passing first is that your hand is limited and therefore nonforcing. South opened in fourth seat with full values but hoping for a spade contract. North's 2 was not welcome, but ace-doubleton is fair support and that contract is actually the par for the hand. there is no reason for South to remove 2 to 2NT or 3.

Hey, East! Want to rethink that opening bid? How comfortable is this auction for you?

The theme continues -- for a decent auction, try to open the bidding with actual opening hands. East would be oh, so much better placed had the original decision been to pass with the East cards on the first round of bidding. Only the presence of the spade suit should have given pause for fear the hand might otherwise be passed out.

The negatives of the East hand for opening the bidding are (1) the lack of quick tricks (2) the total absence of aces (3) the demoted singleton K (4) the devalued heart honor(s) (5) the lack of diamond intermediates.

Bidding the grand slam is a bit much and the play is not as strightforward as you might think, especially after a trump lead, reducing spade ruffs.

Getting to a small slam when the fit is found in a strong auction should not be that difficult.

Craig Hemphill Hand Analysis
WestNorthEastSouth
  Pass1
2NTPass3!4!
4Pass6All pass

The unusual 2NT overcall for hearts and clubs, based on the reduced penalties for nonvulnerable doubled undertricks vs. vulnerable opponents spurred both pairs into vigorous action that might not have been taken without the prodding! Such are the occasional consequences of preemptive actions that go unnoticed by the active bidders. North's 3 bid showed support for diamonds and a very good hand. 4 by East gave South a view of the likely value of his spade cards and 4 showed where his values were, along with very useful cards everywhere (else South would have passed).

It is most likely that a good NS pair would miss 6 absent competition and just as likely that the EW pairs will prod 6.

Odd, isn't it?
