West's 2 bid shows a limit raise or better in hearts. Better today, and West goes on to game despite East's 3 decline.

Not much play. There are two spades and a club to lose -- unless South leads a club, when one of the spades disappears. So the question arises -- should North have doubled the cue bid of his partner's suit for lead-directional purposes? A reasonable idea, and the absence of the double might well deter South from leading his own suit! The problem with the idea is that it conflicts with having the double show real support and a suggestion of bidding more. That is NOT the hand that North holds!

The opening lead will have much to do with the matchpoint distribution. A club lead will cost dearly, all other leads will result in 450 to EW.

Wait! The computer always makes 450. What's that about? It has to do with the club spots, cutting communication, and avoidance play. Essentially, Declarer will duck one spade, win the second, draw trumps, and lead the TEN of clubs! If South ducks, there are two ways to set up a club for a spade pitch -- ruff out the Qxx or take a later finesse of the jack and discard a spade on the A. If South covers, here is the nifty part -- West wins the A and leads clubs twice more -- from the top! The jack, say is covered and won by the king, but when declarer gets to the board with a diamond, the 8 forces a cover with the 9, ruffed, but SMOTHERING the 7. Now, one more trip to the dummy and the 7 is good for a spade discard.

A deep promotion play.

The second hand in a row in which advancer (the partner of the overcaller) cue bids to show a limit raise or better and winds up BETTER!

This hand has no fancy plays -- just draw trumps and lose a club and a diamond. Things might get a bit dicey if the opening lead and continuation are diamonds, followed by three spades. Then, when a club finesse is taken and lost, another diamond takes out declarer's last trump. No matter. Cash the top clubs, setting the balance up as winners, and use the K as an entry.

Still ten tricks.

North has a strange hand -- offering just 2 and then deciding on 4, but with partner not doubling, the minor suit cards rate to be working overtime. Call it an updated evaluation based on the ensuing auction.

West also has a strange hand -- the void encourages bidding on, but the spades suggest defending. Oddly, the trump KTxx will be good for two trump tricks, as expected, but not enough to defeat the contract -- Declarer has a surrogate trump suit in clubs, so after playing to ruff one heart and then one trump to the jack or queen, declarer in 4 can maintain trump control by ruffing one heart and , and then playing clubs, offering West the option of ruffing and reducing his trump holding, or allowing declarer the opportunity to ruff his other losing heart, after which clubs will simply be run as surrogate trumps. A bridge movie is pending approval to show the play of the hand card by card.

Meanwhile, declaring 5 can be defeated by the A, A and a diamond ruff, but if South wins the A and tries to cash a club, it will be curtains -- declarer can crossruff to rid himself of the spade losers, ruffing high, and then taking a finesse against South's T for eleven tricks (draw trumps and drive out the A).

Sure, in your dreams. But it is POSSIBLE.

With two honors third and a ruffing value, it is wise to raise partner's major with three trumps. Here the idea works well, allowing EW to achieve the highest scoring part score. Notice the spade finesse works (lead toward the QJ, don't "push" unsupported honors), the club finesse works, and the heart suit breaks, allowing a diamond loser to be discarded.

 4All pass 

I actually saw a player open 2 with a hand like North's -- but it was the spade suit rather than hearts. Although the ACBL seems to allow such a distortion, it is totally against partnership bidding and my personal opinion that bidding 2 with 6HCP violates the principles of disclosure of methods to the opponents.

In any case, 4 is the right bid and that should end the auction. Belay the argument that South should bid 4 because the computer can hold the loss to down one because South has no heart to lead and North cannot participate in the defense. A hand from la la land.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch -- East will likely lead a disastrous Q, allowing a diamond discard and when the hearts divide 2-2, 4 makes!

Craig Hemphill Hand Analysis

6All pass  

East denied a minor suit control over 3, so there is no hope for the diamond king to be in the East hand. Without that, a grand slam is against the odds.

In fact, it takes both a doubleton diamond in the East hand and the diamond finesse onside AND the idea of leading the J with the intention of running it AND the fall of the T doubleton in the North hand to make thirteen tricks.....

Just bid the small slam and make all thirteen for a very nice score.
