  1. Takeout Double
  2. cuebid 22+ total points

This week starts off with a mismatch, in more than one way.

Auction: North deals and South with 12 high card points and 12 losers opens the bidding 1. West with a monster 22 hcp and 5 losers first makes a Takeout Double with the intent on rebid to make a descriptive bid. In response to West takeout East (not very enthusiastically bids 2. South passes. West could rebid 2NT but decides to bid 2 as a forcing cuebid showing his monster. East has no other bid than to bids 2, West raisers to 3 and East with only 3 spades and 4 points in quacks passes.

Made 4 — NS −170

Play: In the critical play of this contract, declarer (East) protect the Q as the only entry to his hand and plays on diamonds, giving up the Q to set up the J in his hand. This allows for the pitch of a losing heart on his J.

  1. telling bid
  2. asking bid

The bidding on this deal gets a little complicated. I would like to believe North/Sout can get to 6, but I think 3NT is more realistic.

Auction: South opens the bidding 1 and North responds 1. East/West are silent throughout. South rebids 2 and North bids 3. South's bid of 3 shows some values in hearts (telling bid), but North bid of 3 is an asking bid. If North had a stopper in spades, North would have bid 3NT so North's bid of 3 shows ½ stopper in spades asking South if he also might have ½ stopper in spade. South has Kx and thus bids 3NT.

In an auction like this where 3 suits have been bid naturally, and thus, there is 1 remaining unbid suit bidding this suit such as 3 here is an asking bid.

  1. preemptive
  2. continuing the preempt
  3. penalty

Preempting bidders, argh! In the auction here East preempts 4, with favorable vulnerability I would have bid 5, but with equal vulnerability white vs. white, 4 is high enough.

Auction: North opens the bidding 1 and East preempts 4. South has no issues bidding 4 and West raises the preempt to 5. North has the option of bidding 5 or doubling and letting partner decide on pulling to 5 or sitting for the penalty double. (see Board 2) In this case South has an outside defensive trick in theA and thus sits for the double.

Down 2 — NS +300

Play: The defense of this deal doesn't seem hard South cashes the A and seeing the 3 spades in dummy does not continue spades, but leads the 2 through the A hoping declarer (East) might duck to the Q. But East jumps up with the A and North/South get to win KQ plus A and A. down 2 doubled.

Down 1 — NS −50

Play: On defense West makes the opening lead of the 10 and East/West win a diamond. As soon as declarer (South) gets in it looks like his best bet for tricks is in clubs so immediately cashes the A and then the Q hoping to find the J doubleton and then reach the dummy through the Q. It was a good thought but West holds the J three times in clubs. West does a great job of NOT cashing the J but switching hearts. South continues hearts paying the K hoping someone will jump up with the A but West ducks. South cashes out spades and A and E/W win the last two tricks, down 1. Well defended by West.
