  1. Negative Double
  2. maybe 2

Two-suited hands are something special (see Board 2, Board 10 and Board 12) After North opens 1 with minimum or maximum values East might consider trying to show a two-suit hand, but with opening values East chooses to bid out the shape of his hand.

Auction: North deals and with 14 high card points and 8 losers opens the bidding 1. West with 14 hcp and a two suited hand: spades and clubs overcalls 1. South makes a Negative Double for hearts and West with just 6 hcp but good spades QJ107 makes an aggressive raise to 3 (2 would be ok) After 3 East with a singleton diamond and sitting over North's values (over/under principle) is happy to go to game (after 2 East with just 5 losers would make some game try)

Made 4 — NS −420

Play: It is not unreasonable for South to make an opening lead of the A and then 8 looking for a club ruff, in which case declarer (East) will win the 9 in dummy making 5 on this deal. But a reasonable play, as in the play here is for South to lead a diamond winning by North and continuing diamonds or switching to hearts or clubs. In the play here East leads the K and South covers (not knowing the club situation) and declarer get to dummy with the 9 and finesses North for the K, making 4.

  1. W2B
  2. extending the preempt
  3. High Reverse

Some with East hand of 11 high card points 8 losers and a really nice 6-card heart suit AQJ863 might consider opening East hand 1, but with soft values of the QJ and J3, 2 is probably a better descriptive bid of East hand. South has another two-suited hand: diamonds and clubs (see Board 1) Over an opening of 1 South with 16 hcp might consider initially showing both minors, but over 2 South must bid out the shape of his hand.

Auction: East opens 2 and South with 16 hcp and 4 losers overcalls 3. In the auction here West extends the preempt to 3 (some might consider 4) With North's hand I personally would bid 4, but North passes in the auction here to show that South is strong enough to bid 4 on his own and North is happy to bid 5.

5 by South

Made 5 — NS +600

Play: There is not much to the play of this deal, surely West will lead a heart on opening lead and it doesn't matter if East shifts to a spade, East/West will win the A and the A, making 5.

  1. forcing one round (F1 )
  2. invitational
  3. shows better values than 4
  4. RKC Blackwood
  5. 3 keycards 1430

Bidding most slams is a methodical process bid to define your values and shapes.

Auction: South deals and with 14 high card points opens the bidding 1. North with 13 hcp knows this auction is going to game and responds 1 F1. East would have liked to preempt this auction in diamonds, but after North/South are in a forcing auction, preempting 3 vulnerable, even though he wants a diamond lead, is foolhardy. South with 17 support points for spades and just 6 losers would like to make a forcing bid, but is about a king or queen short of forcing to game. And plus, North has not yet quantified his hand, so South bids 3 as invitational. North needs to make another forcing bid and cuebids 4 GF in the auction here (just biding game of 4 would not show North's values) South (remember has extra values) makes a slam try with 4NT as Roman Keycard Blackwood. North responds 5 1430 showing 3 keycards (A, A and K) and with all keycards and the Q South bids 6.

Play: The play of 6 should not be hard. East does not have a good opening lead. Some might might have East lead the 7 as a passive lead i.e. not giving anything away, but it doesn't matter. Here we have East make potentially the most damaging lead of hearts, but once clubs split 4-3-3-3 and declarer (North) can put a heart from his hand on dummy's fourth club (plus Plan B of finessing for the Q also works) the contract is only losing 1 heart tricks, making 6.

  1. limit raise (or better) in clubs

Another two-suited hand deal (see Board 1) Based upon the new ACBL Open Convention Chart (November 22, 2018) an allowed opening bid is "Any opening bid in a suit which is Natural, as long as it shows at least Near-Average Strength" and Near Average Strength is defined as "A hand that has at least 8 high card points or meets the “Rule of 17”.

Auction: In the auction here East with a 6/6 hand in the majors, 8 hcp and just 5 losers opens the bidding 1. South with 14 hcp and 6 losers (a nice hand) overcalls 2 and West raises to 2. North with another nice opening hand of 13 hcp (but with a singleton Q) makes a cuebid raise of clubs with 3 this auction is getting very interesting.* East with partner supporting spades is in the auction for good now, bidding 4. South bids 5 and East bids 5 which gets doubled by South.

* If South trusts his partner's bid of 3, when East bids 4 vulnerable South should realize there are too many hcp in this deal and someone is bidding on shape.

Made 5 — NS −850

Play: The play of 5 is not difficult the only real decision declarer (East) has to make is how to play the hearts. Since South was the 2-level overcaller plus the opponent who doubled 5, East must play South for the A, and thus, the only option for East is to finesse North for the Q.

  1. 2/1 GF
  2. weak rebid

And yet another two-suited hand deal. Backing into 3NT.

Auction: West deals and with 11 high card points 7 losers and a 6-card heart suit A97632 opens the bidding 1. East with 11 hcp, 6 losers and the black suits has enough values for two bids so first bids 2 GF. East's plans are to rebid 2 and then return to clubs with 3 or 4.* West rebids hearts 2 and East bids 2 GF. West with AQ8 bids 3NT and East passes.

* 2 is pretty much game forcing unless East rebids 3 or 4 as an escape.

Made 3 — NS −400

Play: double dummy (DD) North's best opening lead is the 5, but that is really hard opening lead to find with West twice bidding hearts. A spade lead doesn't help, nor a club lead North leads the unbid suit diamonds, choosing to lead the J so as not to block the suit. Declarer (West) wins the trick in hand with the Q and takes the first club finesse losing to the Q. To make the contract all West has to find is for club honors to be split with North holding the K (and the Q was not a singleton)
