After some normal bidding, 2 Pass Pass to West is where this auction gets frustrating. 3 would be an underbid, 3 could easily get you too high (or to the wrong strain), and double has the problem that partner might leave it in (also, it's not clear how to continue after you double). If you choose 3 as shown here, your partner will bid 3NT.

South quite possibly will lead a low heart against three notrump, which is a nice start for declarer as she will win the 10. Unfortunately, declarer is now going to take a diamond finesse which loses. With 10 cards, we wouldn't finesse for the Q, but we absolutely should finesse for the K. This time, it just happens that playing the ace would have worked, but you can't think that way. Do what will work most of the time and ignore that something else happened to work on this hand. South's overcall is not enough to tip the odds in favor of the drop.

  Pass1
3NTAll pass  

South has a difficult choice as opening bidder. Six-five hands are worth extra (you can read Larry Cohen's article on this and other topics at larryco.com), but this hand isn't worth a reverse if partner responds 1. As a result, I would open 1 to avoid the rebid problems. West should leap to 3NT. 3NT here does NOT show any sort of balanced hand. It shows a hand that has a lot of tricks plus a stopper in the opponent's suit. Here, West sees 7 diamond tricks and at least one heart trick. She's hoping that partner will cover the rest.

On this hand, partner's clubs (and A) will be enough to make at least 9 tricks. North might choose a spade lead instead of a heart in order to try a suit the declarer isn't ready for. The only lead to beat the contract is a low club, and the only way North is leading that is if it falls out of her hand by accident. Blindly leaping to 3NT will make life very difficult for defenders.

The South hand could choose 1 or 1 to open with. Yes, the old saying is that you open 3-3 minor hands 1 and 4-4 with 1, and the first part holds true, but with 4-4, you may have other considerations. 1 gives your partner more room to operate, but 1 allows you to avoid reversing (a big reason I use it on this auction). Also, 1 lets partner know you have 4 of them (almost always). Use your discretion. After 1 P 1 P 1, North needs to make a game forcing bid. The only one available (aside from jumping to game) is to bid the fourth-suit. Fourth-suit-forcing is a convention worth adding as it allows you to have more precise auctions in scenarios such as this. North wants to know if South has delayed heart support (3 cards), and bidding 2 is the only way to find out. South should bid 3, even though 2 was an artificial bid. South wants to show her shape, so bidding 3 is more descriptive than 2NT which would only say that South has clubs covered. North will bid 3NT, knowing partner has short hearts.

In terms of the play, this is a hand that rewards paying close attention. On the J lead, declarer will play the Q and if West wins and continues, declarer should be confident about that8 being a stopper. Similarly, if declarer plays spades properly by playing a high honor from each hand, she will see that the J and 10 of spades appear, making the 9 high. If declarer starts with the K, she has to make a restricted choice guess before having all of the information. Any attentive declarer should take at least 9 tricks, but if declarer doesn't notice the little things, it's easy to see her going down.

When East opens 1 in third seat, South surely feels that she is being stolen from. Still, she should pass and hope to bid later, rather than trying an undervalued 1NT (the only possible call other than pass). West bids 1, even with 5 lousy points, hoping to improve the contract and North should try 1. While North is a passed hand, and thus limited, South could have real values, so North's overcall here is a combination of interference and hope to find the right contract. I don't like overcalling with a suit lacking any high card value, but J1097 is a pretty good heading to a suit. East will bid 2, promising 4-card support, and now what should South do? Pass might end the auction. Raising to 2 with only 2 spades seems aggressive, but it's a reasonable choice. I opted for pass, although it seems clear looking at all four hands that 2 was the winner in part because West might bid 3.

Against 2, North will lead the J and the declarer will have some interesting problems. With so many losers, drawing trump is unattractive, but it seems best to lead a club towards the KQ. Will declarer try leading a heart to the K and then a club to the Q? If so, the defenders may not be able to to do much better than attempting to draw trump and getting out of the way. On the lay of the cards, declarer can always take four hear tricks, and one of each of the other suits. Double-dummy would be to ruff spades or diamonds in the dummy.

Would I open the East hand? Possibly, depending on the day of the week. I'd rather have the K in the same suit as one of the aces, but it's certainly not uncommon to treat this as an opening bid. If you open this type of hand, then you better be sure that partner doesn't bury you with balanced 12 counts. Assuming South opens in third seat, North will raise to 2 and West should balance with double. Will North take the push to 3? Opposite a third-hand opening it might be a matter of style, but with a 4-3-3-3 hand and vulnerable, it feels like a big risk. East will bid 3 and probably play it there.

Too often, people hear their partner raise them in the auction and assume that means that they can throw out all of their prior knowledge about opening leads. When partner raises, they don't guarantee the K, although they become somewhat more likely to hold that card. It turns out that a heart lead might be as good as any other, but it does set up a heart trick for declarer. Declarer can play diamonds for only one loser by hoping South has honor-10 tight by leading low towards the J and then when South plays Q, later running the J to trap the K.
