  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.

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.

Made 6 — NS +1430

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.

Fred Ferguson Hand Analysis
WestNorthEastSouth
1Pass21Pass
22Pass2Pass
3NTAll pass  
  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)
