An unimpressive auction, but accurate! NS bid to the level of safety (4 doubled would be one too many).

An exuberant 4 opening bid is unnecessary, unilateral, and punishable!

  1. A positive heart response
  2. Unlimited balanced hand
  3. Really good hearts

East has a clear cut 2 opener for standard and 2/1 players. West has a promising hand and needs to apply the partnership's systemic bid to describe the nature of the hand. 2 might be the best for the simplicity, but there are those who would bid 3 or 4 (or even a transfer 4!) to describe the long fair heart suit with little outside. Some require more to bid a positive heart response (8 points and a five card or longer suit with two of the top three), and some play 2 as a double negative (despite my best efforts to persuade otherwise).

But the crux of the matter is later in the auction -- sooner or later, East will count an optimistic twelve tricks and hope for more. Then 4NT Roman Keycard Blackwood 1430 is wheeled out, and after the response of 5, showing one, 5 asks for the trump queen. Here is where West may express some optimism, with a 5NT bid, promising the trump queen and simultaneously suggesting an extra value without that extra's being a side suit king. Perhaps a side third round control or second round control, perhaps extra length. Here West has a singleton spade AND extra heart length.

East will expect the extra length and bid 7NT, counting tricks and extra chances. The J makes fifteen tricks solid.

Any suggestion that South should pass rather than open smacks of hindsight after a poor result. North is going to force any opening bid to game, and the adverse cards are just horribly placed for declarer. The luck of the opening lead may well be the main factor in determining the result on this board, for 3NT will surely be a popular contract, with varying results, mostly depressing for NS.

What was good for the NS pair (bidding game) on board 3 is enticing as well for EW here, but equally unrewarding. Down one. Such bidding prowess!

But West has a reasonable opener and East has cause for optimism. Indeed, 5 would make pretty much assuredly if only the K were onside (one club goes away on a spade).

So far so bad for aggressive bidders.

Is it better for West to "Show" his four card spade suit by bidding 2, invitational? Or should 2 be an invitation denying spades but show a balanced hand? 2NT might well be used to invite while showing four spades, so that opener will always be declarer!

That scheme is commended for your consideration.

No matter here, for 3NT can be made, with the aid of the five card diamond suit, if properly negotiated.

West has a nice hand, but the worthless K keeps him from jumping to 2 on the second round of bidding. However, East's raise suggests some worthwhile values, so West belatedly comes to life.

On the unlikely but effective lead of the A, game can be made despite the loss of two trumps and that diamond, thus: A, second diamond ruffed, A won to continue diamonds, tapping West. Now West can use his the last trump to pull two from the opponents, but look closely! North's 9 has been promoted into a sure trick.

West can overcome that inconvenience ONLY by crossing to a club honor in the East hand and then playing a trump, exhausting North's last. Then East can ruff a potential diamond continuation with the hand's last trump or win the A. In either case, West's clubs, East's lone trump, and the A take the remainder: Ten tricks.

EW easily brush aside South's preemptive effort and make a very easy game with five spades, AK, AK, and a diamond ruff.

Too easy. Next!

South might think about playing spades, holding ruffing values in the diamond suit, but 1NT is just a tad more attractive because South lacks a fourth trump. With all of the clubs wrong, and diamonds pretty much wrong, spades would have worked out better, for eight tricks are available by simply ruffing diamonds..
