AiB Team - Robert Todd and Theri Andino Hand Analysis

North opens 2 on this chunky 10-count, and East makes a takeout double. South bumps to at least 3 (and really, if he judges his singleton to be useful and hoping slightly to goad the opponents into 4, he might bid 4.) West isn't biting, so it looks like whatever South bids will end the auction. It's also possible, depending on style, that North opened 1 or even 3.
This indeed is a good hand for game! Declarer loses 2 and 1, but even if the opponents lead , he can take the finesse for an extra pitch for a losing (and fight to set up the 5th if they lead trump again.)

AiB Team - Robert Todd and Theri Andino Hand Analysis

East passes and South opens 1NT. West passes, North has nothing to add, and so here we are. (East will be pretty sorry if he chooses to come in with !)
But that same suit that East may have been tempted to bid is a serious thorn in South's side. He could get 3, 1, and 3 on some finesses to make the contract, but EW also have several chances to beat this with the and forcing declarer to deal with the .

South passes and West passes with such a bad suit. North passes and East opens 1. Now West can make a 3-card Drury bid, but since he's a passed hand, East probably just signs off in game.
West's singleton in is the control East needed, so this contract is in great shape with just that one loser! (Again, if defense leads trump, declarer has to set up the to pitch his .)

AiB Team - Robert Todd and Theri Andino Hand Analysis

West opens 1 (planning to rebid 2NT), and North passes. East game forces into 2 (this should be a meaty enough 12-count for that), and South would like to get in there, so he can throw in a 2 lead-director. West can pass since they're in a game forcing auction, so East bids 2. West bids 3, East bids 3 to show partial stopper/ask for a stopper, and West has that partial stopper too, and bids 3NT.
This is fine - even if the defense finds the lead from North (easy for South, of course, but North might come to it as well from the bidding, particularly if South did actually bid 2.) Declarer has lots of tricks - 5, 4, and 2 (assuming he doesn't take the hook, likely because he no longer has a stopper), and 1, but loses South's 2 cards most likely unless South ducks once.

North opens 1 and East overcalls 2. South bids 3 to show the limit raise (or maybe even a real heavy 2), and North corrects to 3/passes with the minimum.
Declarer might make this as it's pretty easy for the defenders to slip up. East can lead his AK pretty easily, but then switch to the singleton . Then when declarer goes after trump, East jumps up with his K and plays another , which West has to ruff with the A, and give East his ruff (shouldn't be hard to count from the auction.) Might happen, but declarer might also just make 3.

East opens 2, and South passes. West has no argument with , and so North has to balance in with his Majors - he might even get pushy and choose to do so with a Leaping Michaels Cue Bid bid of 4 (or just 2, which South raises, and they get to that game, or just a double, getting to 4.) Given a choice, though, South picks .
4 works out great for NS - declarer loses 1 and 1 when the finesse is on. (In , there's a ruff available to East.)

South passes and West opens 1. North overcalls 1, and East raises to 2. South stays quiet, and West goes ahead with his 2NT plan since are under control. East has a tough call as to whether to take that to game or not, but his 5-card suit might tip him over to bidding 3NT, or he might go low with 3.
If North leads his against NT, hoping to use the A as a later entry, then he'll give this contract to declarer with 2, 2, and 5 on the finesse of South. But the lead of the A and then continuing to South's would beat this contract.

West passes and North opens 1. East may pass or may overcall this nice 4-card suit with 1. South then bids 1 or 2 as needed, and West keeps his mouth shut. North offers 3NT, and South probably lets that go with the hopefully helpful J.
With North declaring this, things are good. He's got up to 3, 1, 5, and 1 - although the defense should be able to get 2, 1, and 1 to hold to just 9.
