AiB Team - Robert Todd and Theri Andino Hand Analysis

North passes and East opens 1, so South overcalls 1. West passes and North tries 1NT (a very full 1NT, but cutting partner a little slack for being an overcall.) South rebids 3 and North bumps to game.
This works well - the defense can have the first 3 tricks, but then the losing can go on the A.

AiB Team - Robert Todd and Theri Andino Hand Analysis

East passes and South opens 1. West is happy to hear that from the opponent, but passes, and North bids a (semi-)forcing 1NT. South still reverses into 2 to show values, and North rebids 3. South now bids 3NT, and since North can probably gather that South is short in , he can just leave it there.
This hand looks like it should be worth a lot of tricks, until the suit doesn't cooperate and North runs out of entries to his hand. But game is fine - declarer comes to 3, 2, 2, and 2, but will have to manage entries carefully to be able to take finesses/lead up to the dummy.

AiB Team - Robert Todd and Theri Andino Hand Analysis

South opens 1 and West passes, so North probably just makes a heavy 2 bid (rather than bump this up to a limit raise.) East also passes (maybe entertaining a 2NT for the minors), and so South has to decide just how valuable his shape is. It's not hard to see all those little as a deficit, and without knowing partner has 4-card support, it's very possible that South just passes. Now if West can resist the temptation to balance back in, he'll probably get a good score - but if he does come in, North will certainly now bid 3, and open the door for NS to maybe get to the game.
North's hand has just enough covers for South, who just loses 2 (making sure not the pull all the trump before the are dealt with) and 1 to make this game easily!

AiB Team - Robert Todd and Theri Andino Hand Analysis

West passes and North opens 1. East overcalls 1, so South can go ahead and bid 2 without it being game forcing. West raises to 2 and North bumps to 3, which East passes. South might consider bidding more, but he really has already shown his values and partner didn't do anything more exciting than raise, so he passes. Since everyone is vulnerable, West probably also takes the hint that this is not their hand, and passes.
This looks like it has a shot at 11 tricks at first glance, but then declarer realizes that he can't deal with the losing and pull all the trump, so in addition to the 1 and 1 loser, there's likely to be a loser.

AiB Team - Robert Todd and Theri Andino Hand Analysis

North opens 1NT, which passes around to West. West does have a really nice hand, but being under the NT opener isn't attractive, so he probably just lets this go, but if they play DONT and West knows he will get to be the declarer, he might come in. (If he does bid, North can then show his , and probably buy the contract there.)
would have been better, but 1NT does make. Declarer can set up those for 4 tricks, and then a couple of and a - but more to the point is that the defense gets 6 tricks with 1, 3, 1 (by keeping declarer off dummy to take that finesse), and 1.

East opens 1 (there might even be some players who bump this up to 2NT with the length), South passes, and West bids 1. North doubles, so East rebids 3 (rather than reverse into ), and that passes out.
The defense needs to get their through to South as soon as possible to hold this to just making 3 - declarer could lose 1, 2, and 1.

South passes and West opens 1. North could bid 2, but likely goes ahead with 3, eating up space since partner is a passed hand, so East has a tough call. He may decide to scrape up a double since he can stomach partner rebidding , but then again, he can't really handle partner picking , so he may just pass. South also passes, and now West comes back in with 3. It feels like that will be the end of it, but it's possible things get a little wackier.
East's hand is mostly useless to West, so he's got the 2 and 1 losers he started with (although at least East's singleton is good for something!)

West passes (blah 5-count with 7222 shape does not look like a good preempt), and North opens 1. East now passes and South bids 1NT (semi-)forcing. North rebids 2 at the top of the range and South rebids 3, so North bumps that to game.
It's possible for South to make 11 tricks here, losing just 1 and 1/1, but with no bidding from the defense, it's not hard to guess some things wrong and come to an extra loser, especially if West leads and gets East a ruff right away.
