3NTAll pass  

Although many will open the East hand with 1NT, it looks too strong for that to me, holding a good five card suit and a full 17 HCP. E/W should end up comfortably in 3NT declared by East whether East opens 1 or 1NT. If East opens 1NT, West will check for a fit and then bid 3NT. If East instead opens 1, West will have to decide whether to bid 1 or 1. Many experts play a style whereby they bypass four card or longer suits to bid a major if they have less than an invitational hand. With 10 HCP, West is close to invitational, but with today's light opening bid style, would you really want to bid over a 1NT rebid by East? Of course, if the E/W agreements allow East to rebid 1 with a balanced hand over 1, then West is probably safe starting with 1. The main danger is that the opponents will compete in s. Overall, I prefer to bid my major unless I'm planning to bid again if partner responds 1NT. This isn't a universal viewpoint though, and you should discuss with your partners when to bid 1 and when to bid a major.

Against 3NT, South doesn't have a great hand to lead from but will likely start with a . Double dummy, declarer can play the King and lead a . This puts North in the uncomfortable situation of going up with the Ace, which will allow the suit to run, or ducking, allowing declarer to win an honor and then switch to s. This could result in declarer making 11 or 12 tricks depending on what North chooses. In practice, though, declarer is more likely to start on the suit. Assuming declarer leads the Queen and Jack and South wins one of those tricks and clears the suit, declarer will be up to nine tricks. With the 10 of s dropping in the North hand, declarer will have to decide whether to finesse South for the 9, or play for the suit to split 3-3. This is an advanced version of a principle known as "Restricted Choice ". Without going into the details here, suffice it to say that odds are 2:1 in favor of finessing South for the 9. So, at matchpoints it is best to finesse, as 3NT looks like the normal contract. In a team game, of course, finessing would be a poor choice as it would risk the contract. The finesse will turn out to be right on this hand, rewarding those who are aware of the concept of Restricted Choice. The difference between +400 and +430 for E/W will be a lot of matchpoints.

Both East and South are close to opening this hand, but at most tables it will be West who starts things off with a 1 bid. At this vulnerability, it's a little scary for North to come in with a overcall, given the "Swiss Cheese" nature of their honors, and not holding in shortness. In fact, I wouldn't recommend overcalling at all on this hand. However, if North passes, it looks like E/W will quietly end up in 3. This might be final contract even if North overcalls 1, as it will take some aggressive bidding by South to push E/W to the four level. As it happens, N/S might regret getting pushy on this hand. East has a really good hand for s opposite known shortness, and might well diagnose to bid game. Of course, with the King offside, declarer will have to guess the suit to make 11 tricks in s, but game is still a decent prospect. Certainly 4 should make easily, as declarer can quickly get a cross ruff going even if they misguess in s. If N/S get doubled in a contract it will not go well for them.

  1. Mixed Raise, 7-9 HCP, 4+ s

Everyone but West will be faced with some bidding decisions on this hand. South has a normal 1 opening and North will have to decide whether to call their hand a full four card limit raise or not. With two Aces, the hand is better than an average 8 HCP hand, but the minor suits are really terrible, with no spot cards in either one. Given that on the actual hand, 4 is an excellent contract even with South having strength opposite North's shortness, perhaps North should upgrade their hand to a four card limit raise. If North doesn't upgrade, then they have a hand type very familiar to the regular readers of my commentary, namely the Mixed Raise. A Mixed Raise is a hand with four card or longer support, typically 7-9 HCP, though this can vary a little with vulnerability, some distribution and some defense. A hand that wants to be preemptive, but is too strong to be called a weak raise. The weaker of the two Bergen raises is an example of a Mixed Raise, and many pairs will have this option and use it, bidding either 3 or 3 to show the North hand. Many experts use a direct raise to three of the major to show the Mixed Raise. Although this gives up on a weak raise, the benefit is that it makes it a lot harder for the opponents to enter the bidding, and Mixed Raises are more common that Weak Raises. Notice how much pressure a 3 bid from North puts on East on the actual hand. East has 18 HCP and an excellent five card suit and still can't get in the bidding safely. East has too many major suit losers to want to bid at the four level, even opposite known shortness. Indeed, if East bids 4, North will surely double, and on any defense declarer will go down at least two tricks. As -500 will be worse for East than N/S bidding game, this will be a disaster.

East will be forced to pass, and now it will be South's turn to decide what to do. South has only 12 HCP, so it looks like passing will be normal, but the South hand is better than it first appears opposite a Mixed Raise. Playing in a team game, South might well just take a chance at game. Game will likely depend on whether North has any wasted values. Those who play 3 as their weak Bergen Raise may be at an advantage here, as South can bid 3 as a generic game try, and North should happily accept. Even with the suit not breaking, 4 is an easy make unless West leads a and East wins and leads a low . This will be a difficult defense to find, as it will be a disaster if South holds the KQ or even the K without the Jack. Even on the actual hand, if South gets the s right and plays the King, East will be unhappy at underleading the Ace.

The bidding is likely to be quite competitive on this hand, given the N/S fit, and the highly offensive nature of the West hand. West has a normal 1 opening and East will bid 1NT. South has a good hand and with both majors should want to get into the bidding. Although it is usually preferable to have a six card suit to overcall at the two level, 2 looks like the normal bid for South and not double. The West hand is too oriented towards offense to either pass or double 2, especially as East has at most six cards in the majors and therefore E/W have at least a nine card minor suit fit, and N/S have at least a nine card fit. Once West bids 3, North should recognize that they have a great hand for s and should not hesitate to jump to game. In fact, if North had an honor in s, I think the North hand would be worth a 4 Splinter bid. West will be left to decide what to do over 4. Despite knowing his side holds half the HCP, it doesn't look like E/W have much defense on this hand. Further, it doesn't look like E/W will go down very much in a minor suit contract. The most important thing for West is to find the right minor suit contract. It certainly looks like most of the time a contract will be better, but East could still be 3316 or something similar, and now s is clearly best. A 5 bid by West would suggest a hand with at least five s, so West can bid 4NT, which asks East to choose a minor suit, but shows no more than four s and longer s. West will almost always be 6-4 on this bidding. Although 4-4 fits often play better than 5-3 or even 6-3 fits, East should not be tempted to choose 5. The minors are likely breaking badly, and East can work out that West will get tapped in s right away. Since the East s aren't good enough to pull trump, it should be clear that a contract will be better. Knowing that the s are a likely source of tricks on defense, North should have no trouble doubling a contract.

How will a contract by N/S fair? Let's say that West leads a . The play is a little bit tricky, as declarer needs to get a set up, pull trump and would prefer to lead s from dummy twice, to play for both the QJ in the East hand or the Ace in the East hand. The bidding will suggest that the Ace is in the West hand, so if declarer messes up the communication, they can still get the hand right by playing for the Ace to be doubleton. I think expert players will make 4 most of the time, but it will go down at tables where declarer plays a to the King without thinking about the other options. A contract has four unavoidable losers. If North leads a to the King, South will switch to their low . Declarer has to win the Ace to hold their losses to a minimum and this will not be an easy play to make. If declarer instead takes a finesse, North can win, and should realize that they can give South a ruff and will still score their other honor later. This will lead to five tricks for the defense. +800 will certainly be a top for N/S, but even +500 will not be bad as not all pairs will make 4.
