  1. balancing double

We have to remember bridge is a partnership game.

Auction: North deals and passes. While East would like to bid his spades, opening 2 with just two outside queens is reckless even not vulnerable. South with 13 high card points and 7 losers opens the bidding 1 and West with 14 hcp and 7 losers chooses to pass and and not force a bid. We don't suggest playing Savannah Doubles (Minimum Offshape Takeout Double ) Some might choose to bid 2 with West hand, but if East is on lead in this deal West doesn't want a club lead. North bids 1NT and when the auction passes back around, West makes a balancing double. East is now happy to bid 2 and South has no bid except maybe 2NT but with a minimum hand South passes.

Made 2 — NS −110

Play: The play of 2 is not difficult or tricky, South can see the Kx in dummy and is assured of 2 spade tricks. So declarer (East) can win 4 spades + 3 hearts + 1 diamond for making 2.

All pass   
  1. 15-17 high card points
  2. Stayman
  3. no 4-card major
  4. Quantitative notrump bids

This should be an easy 6NT slam.

Auction: East deals and South with 16 hcp, 6 losers (standard) and balanced hand opens the bidding 1NT. North with a 1NT opening hand of 15 hcp and 7 losers first bids 2 as Stayman and when South responds 2 negative for a 4-card major, North bids 4NT as a Quantitative invitation to 6NT. South has a standard 1NT opener i.e. nothing extra, but with a 5-card diamond suit headed by the AKxxx South looks to have a source of tricks in diamonds and accepts bidding 6NT.

Made 7 — NS +1470

Play: After winning the opening lead in hand with the 10, declarer (South) goes to dummy with a spade and leads the 10 which East covers with the J. South now makes a safety play on diamonds thinking he might need to loose a diamond to the Q, but the Q falls. Now all South needs to do is focus on transportation and cash out, making 7.

  1. 15-17 high card points
  2. Jacoby Transfer

Not the most exciting deal.

Auction: North with 16 hcp and 7 losers (sub-standard) and a balance d hand opens the bidding 1NT. East passes and South with a disaster looking hand bids 2 as a transfer to hearts and then subsequently passes. West in the position to balance holds 4 hearts and is frozen out of the auction.

Down 1 — NS −100

Play: With the notrump bidder on his right (under) East is very reluctant to lead away from AJ9x or KQ7x and thus East leads the 10. This deal could be played out any number of ways, in the play here West ducks hearts and eventually gets a second hearts trick with a ruff on spades, down 1.

All pass   
  1. Takeout Double
  2. LSGT

On first glance, this looks like a hard game to bid North only has 14 high card points and South only 7 hcp.

Auction: West deals and like Board 1, it is hard for West in first seat to open 2 as a Weak Two-Bid. HOWEVER, if West does open 2, North will overcall 2 and North/South should still reach game, but East/West might take a sacrifice at 5x.

In the auction here West passes and North opens the bidding 1. East makes a Takeout Double for hearts. Depending on system, South supports spades, 2 in the auction here. North with 6 losers makes a game try in diamonds and South with a singleton K accepts.

Made 5 — NS +650

Play: On opening lead East not wanting to give anything away leading away from honors leads the 8. East could cash the AK and then lead away from honors. In the play here when East does not cash the AK declarer (North) takes advantage putting a club loser on the A and setting up a cross ruff for the red suits, making 5.

  1. Western Cuebid

There always has to be one deal, no one will believe.

Auction: North deals and East with 10 high card points a really nice 6-card diamond suit, 12 support points and just 7 losers opens the bidding 1. Some might open this hand 2, but with the internal sequence AJ10982 on diamonds and the Q10x supported, and with 7 losers this hand warrants an opening bid of 1. South overcalls 1, West is frozen in the auction and passes, and North passes. East reopens the bidding 2 and West now responds 2. East bids 3 and West bids 3 as a Western cuebid asking about a stopper in hearts and is an invitation to 3NT. With the protected Kx East bids 3NT.
