Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

Although N-S can make 6, the most common contract should be 4 by North. After all, N-S only have a combined total of 21 HCP’s. East deals and opens 3, if that is your preferred strategy. South has no bid and West could respond 3. What now? If North doubles, and East runs to 4, South will double. If East passes, already having told his story and then some, South could pass, bid 4 or 3 NT. Interesting choice of 3 bids on the same hand. The best scores if N-S are the declarer should be in hearts, making either 5 or 6. I doubt many, if any, will bid slam.

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

Another possible pre-empt by the dealer at favorable vulnerability. South will likely open a weak 2 if they are playing them. Otherwise, my choice is pass. I don’t like to pre-empt in front of my partner. Over 2, West will double. North may bid 2 or 3. It looks unlikely that E-W will bid their spade game unless pushed to it. E-W can beat 3 by one with a club ruff. If E-W get to 4, the best N-S can do is “sacrifice” in 4 NT -- highly unusual. This will go down 300.

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

The normal contract should be 4 for E-W. With a trump lead, there are ten tricks available via two club ruffs in the dummy, five hearts in declarer’s hand and three aces. Without a trump lead, declarer should be able to ruff three clubs in dummy and emerge with eleven tricks. Woe be unto those frisky Souths who overcall 2 vulnerable. That will get E-W plus 800 and a top board!

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

Due to the favorable position of the A, the best contract and top spot in the scoring will be 6 for E-W. This will be +1370. Unfortunately, most will probably open a 15-17 no trump with the East hand. West will bid Stayman and they will end up in 3 NT. If south leads a diamond, declarer can duck the first one, win the continuation and run six rounds of clubs. If he reads the position correctly, he will have squeezed the South hand down to no diamonds or just three spades. So...he will score 6 clubs, 1 diamond, and either 1 heart and 3 spades, or 4 spades. Those who open the East hand 1 and jump to 3 after a 1 response will have the best chance of getting to slam.

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

With E-W cold for 3 grand slams, spades, hearts and diamonds, hopefully many will bid slam. East deals and opens 1, if South now bids 3, West will bid 3. North can muddy the waters with a 4 bid. East has nothing more to add and now it’s up to West. He may jump to 6, hoping for the best. If he bids 5, East might bid 5. He really has a good hand for this auction. Hard to say what West should bid now but I imagine 6 and 6 will be popular choices. It is very difficult to bid the grand with a lot of interference!
