An auction of exploration for notrump stoppers. Without interference the auction proceeds in an orderly fashion: North opens, South creates a Game Force , and then North chooses a rebid by a process of elimination more than desire. 3 would normally not be a choice raise with only three trumps, but at this point in the auction the goal is 3NT and North has no heart stopper. 3 is more or less a waiting bid. South must bid 3, hoping for 3NT rather than a spade raise!

No worries. North, having heard about the suit that worried him, bids 3NT, holding a stopper in the suit that worried South.

Ah, but with only seven tricks off the top there are worries remaining in the play. If East starts a major suit, that will work to declarer's advantage developing the eighth trick and diamonds will provided the ninth.

East has a borderline opening bid. What is the proposed action after a hypothetical 1 response by West? 1NT with a singleton spade? 2 on the moth-eaten suit? 2? In the hustle-bustle of current play, most players do not look so much to the future. We shall see if that lack of foresight works well or not.

South has a very debatable overcall vulnerable, but let's give the bid for EW to overcome and see what develops.

West, with 15 HCP, will drive to game and will consider either 3NT or a minor suit. All directions are kept available after a 2 cue bid, showing a limit raise or better in diamonds while denying four spades, for lack of a double. The latter concept is what makes it superior to a 2 bid and later spade call, which would potentially be natural. After the cue bid East has nothing better than 3, at least comforted by the promise of diamond support from the cue bid. West then whips out a second cue bid, and whether you call this "Western Cue" or "do something intelligent," it comes to pretty much the same thing in the context of this auction.

North has nothing to say during the auction.

Back to East. Despite the failure of West to bid spades or make a Negative Double , the 3 bid clearly asks for a heart stopper for notrump. Should the singleton spade deflect East from making that bid? Or is the confidence of the cue bid sufficient assurance? I, for one would bid 3NT, expecting West to have a bomb of a hand, including spades under control.

Against 3NT bid in this way, isn't a spade lead from South rather marked? EW down one, whether in 3NT, 5, or 5, with two finesses failing. A heart lead will allow either contract to make.

North can "see" at least a tolerance for hearts on the auction, in which South is likely short in spades. Two small hearts is adequate support in this case.

South's hand is not for preemption with two quick tricks and a potential source of tricks should partner have scattered values suitable for notrump. Minimum hand, yes, but an opening hand, despite the failure to meet the "Rule of 20 ." Has it been mentioned sufficiently in this column that the Rule of 20 is not in favor here? Instead, quick tricks, lead directional value, and the traditional evaluation techniques of evaluating up for honors working together, honors in long suits, protected honors, and properly evaluating long quality long suits gives this hand a rating (on the K&R scale) of 12.65, firmly emplanting the hand in the opening bid camp.

Notice how opening the bidding 1 rather than 3 or pass gives North the information necessary to compete.

And should EW compete to 3, North should double for penalties, a matchpoint double based on the firm assurance from South that the values exist for an opening bid. It turns out that the setting trick will come from diamonds, where EW need to develop a trick but must lose their fifth to get it.

Many pairs will take nine tricks NS against less than perfect defense, so following the LAW in competitive situations (the corollary to the LAW is to bid to the level of the number of trumps held by your side -- NS are known to hold nine trumps, so should compete over 3 to 3, nine trick undertaking for nine trumps against a three level competition). While 3 can be defeated vulnerable, doubling 3 seems out of reach, and beating 3 might be a problem for many.

Expect NS scores like plus 730, plus 140, plus 110 when EW do not compete enough but defend well, minus 140 less often, and scattered unpredictable results.

To defeat the contract, West must lead a heart (well, a SMALL diamond would do, but let's be real!) and East ought to play the J to make things easy, but this is where it becomes difficult to defend. South can duck the heart, but then a club shift is effective. So South wins the A and leads a diamond to the king WHICH WEST MUST DUCK. Then the J from table which East must cover. When South wins the ace and plays another diamond, West must NOW play the A and must now UNDERLEAD his Q to East's J (Now you can see why East should have played the J earlier -- to give a clear path to his hand with the K at this later stage). And finally, the defense having first created a bridge to the East hand and severed communications in diamonds and preserved a trump issue for declarer, can put the Q on the table. And then the defense gets two top clubs and a club ruff to achieve its five tricks.

Good defense that won't happen at more than 15% of the tables. Some plus scores EW will be achieved when the declarer play is not as good, so the number of EW plus scores will be higher, say 40%.

A routine auction with a routine, virtually flat result. The entire field will be in 4, and all should make five, discarding a diamond from dummy on the fourth spade after drawing trumps.

Somehow, mysteriously, some will fail in this achievement, and NS will get about 55% for doing the routine thing.

A tad too good for 2 for most players, but 2 - 4 is not "wrong" for some partnerships. Expect everyone to be in 4 on this one, making five when clubs become a source of tricks for discards. Trying to ruff TWO diamonds in dummy is wrong, because you don't want to ruff with the trump queen.

On a spade lead, many will not make the correct play of the 9 from table, reducing the spade losers to zero, making the play a bit more difficult.

On a trump lead, declarer should win in dummy and get going immediately with the club suit. Seeing two diamond losers and a sure spade loser, playing the J and running it would be a reasonable choice, assuring ten tricks while having a 50-50 chance for eleven. The reason the play of the J is reasonable is the lack of entries to dummy in a more conventional manner of playing the hand and the possibility of having a club overruff if too many clubs are played before taking the ruffing finesse. This play is best done before the trumps are drawn or diamonds ever played.

In fact, if the Q is won at trick one and the proper club play is made, declarer can actually win all thirteen tricks! The J wins, then a club is ruffed, trumps drawn, and a very, very, greedy spade finesse taken. Two spades, six hearts, and five clubs. But really, such greed is unseemly and more importantly unnecessary. Having first escaped a diamond lead and then made an unusual and successful play at trick two, virtually all of the matchpoints are coming to a declarer who has made the recommended play. Trying for thirteen tricks will not in practice add any matchpoints at all to the total -- playing for thirteen will be seen as the equivalent of taking a practice finesse.

Craig Hemphill Hand Analysis

West has another borderline opening bid, but with three T9x(xx) combinations along with honor topped suits, the hand has escalated so that the option should be exercised. On the familiar (Google K&R Hand Evaluator) Kaplan scale, this hand is worth 14.85!! Without a single spot card in hearts, diamonds, or clubs, the same pattern and honors would obtain just a 12.65 verdict. Oh, how those spot cards matter in estimating the value of the hand in the later play!

So should West open 1 or 1? There will be a split in the actual practice, just as there is in the opinion of the authorities. I suspect that more will open 1 than 1, however, and that will simplify the task with the actual lie of the East cards. Imagine the problems after 1 1; 2. A lot of players will use 2 by responder as an artificial "third suit forcing" bid, rather than natural, and then the diamond suit may be lost for good. Those, like your humble commentator, who like to bid longer suits first, shorter suits next, will have that precise problem Those who open 1 will sneer and jeer.

Bidding 5 is out of reach, but finding the diamond fit will be enough at matchpoints to achieve plus 150 and a very satisfactory result.

West may have one terrible suit (diamonds) for an opening 2NT bid, but not two! East should just make a value bid.

Making seven requires a heart finesse plus a spade-club squeeze against north. Win the opening lead, whatever it is, assuming not a giveaway club, and take the heart finesse. Then cash the major tops and run the diamond suit. North cannot hold the position.

A club lead puts paid to East's achieving twelve tricks. There should be no problem getting to game or staying short of slam, so the matchpoints on this hand will flow to the choice of opening bids. Any lead other than a club will lead to twelve tricks easily.

And what will suggest a club lead? Nothing, actually, so the score sheet will be scattered with 650's and 680's, mostly the latter.

For spades to be a better contract the spade suit must break 3-3 with at least one spade honor "onside." When the Q is right, the spades losers are held to two tricks and the only other trick to lose is a diamond. But don't expect many/any to be in spades at all, with the nine card club fit staring at EW.
