  1. Four card support, limit raise
  2. Generic game try

I expect most N/S pairs to play in a partial on this hand, though some might push to game. North has a normal 1 openers, and some aggressive East pairs will overcall 1. Even non vulnerable, this is a light overcall, and the lack of any shortness is a disadvantage. If East does overcall, West is likely to compete to 3 which will turn out to be a good result for E/W. 3 will be off one at most and will make if the defense doesn't prevent the West hand from ruffing a . However, I think most East pairs will pass with their hand, and South will be able to show a four card limit raise in s. With a fifth trump and an outside Ace, the South hand looks a little strong for a "Mixed Raise" to me. Some pairs will be using "Bergen " raises and will be bidding either 3 or 3 with the South hand. The North hand doesn't have extra HCP, but the hand is pretty prime and some might make a single game try. Note that if you play Bergen Raises, then you need to use the first step above a Bergen Raise to be a generic game try by the opener, as there isn't sufficient bidding room to make specific game tries like help suit game tries. Thus, on the bidding shown, a 3 bid by North says nothing about s and just invites South to bid game with a maximum. South should decline any game invite, as they have no shortness and a minimal hand for a limit raise.

How will a contract fare? Declarer appears to have four losers, with the Ace offside, but there is actually some hope for a tenth trick. East is likely to lead a high . Declarer can win, play a to the Ace and lead a . Should West play an honor? Given that dummy has a doubleton, and declarer has not set up to end play East, West should play low, but many players will play an honor anyway. Declarer can play the King and East will win the Ace, but now what? If East continues s, or leads a and then West switches to a after declarer ducks, then declarer can knock out the other honor, and eventually discard a loser. Furthermore, It would be correct for East to lead a second round of s if declarers hand had a low instead of three low s. Is there a way East can know the right thing to do? With some help from West, the answer is yes. First, if West gives their count in s at trick one, then East will know declarer can't have three s, and surely can't have four since they didn't pull two rounds of trump. Also, for pairs who use a lot of suit preference signals, West should play their lowest honor when splitting, to ask for a . Note that this is the reason declarer should not play two rounds of trump before leading a , as West will surely discard the King to show their holding. If West doesn't split their honors, declarer will have to decide whether to play the 10 or the King. Most will just play the King, but if you believe that the defense isn't good enough to find a switch, there is no harm in playing the 10 and later leading towards the King. Any declarer who makes 10 tricks will score well above average.

  1. Transfer

Yuck, what to do with the North hand after West opens 1 in third seat. At this vulnerability, West might be very light, and North could easily have the best hand at the table. But North can't double holding four and only a doubleton , so the only choices are passing, bidding 1NT on a tepid stopper, or overcalling 2. A two level vulnerable overcall on a four card suit would be...creative. I favor bidding 1NT, but I can understand anyone who just passes, hoping to somehow get back into the bidding later, though it's hard to see how. If North does bid 1NT, South will transfer to s, and West is unlikely to bid again, given their holding. South will then either invite game in NT or bid game in NT. A NT contract by North will be challenging for both sides. With the suit coming in as long as declarer is careful, there are eight top tricks, and the race will be on for a ninth. Let's say that East leads the 10. West will win the Ace, but now what? A small allows declarer to play the Jack, as it is unlikely that East lead the 10 from QTx, though it's certainly possible. Leading the Q at trick two also gives declarer a ninth trick. Leading the Queen and continuing the suit will be a disaster, as declarer can play the 7 and have 10 tricks. So, lets say instead that West switches to a and declarer ducks. The defense can continue the suit but now declarer wins the second round and leads a third round. The defense will be fine as long as West doesn't cash their last without also cashing their . It shouldn't be too hard to find this defense, looking at the fifth in dummy. So, it seems to me that the matchpoints will mostly depend on whether North enters the bidding, and whether West sets up a trick for declarer against a NT contract.

  1. Natural

No, I don't think that the bidding shown will occur often, and in fact, despite South holding a seven card suit, N/S might not even always end up in s (1-1-2-p anyone?) But the bidding does illustrate an important bidding principle unknown to many advancing players. When the opponents open the bidding at the one level and then bid a second suit at the one level, what does a cue bid in either of their suits mean? Most experts will play that cue bidding either of the opponents suits in this situation is natural. So, on the bidding shown, East's 2 bid is natural. Of course, knowing that one of your opponents has a four card suit, this should only be done with a good suit. Does the East hand qualify here? Given the vulnerability, I think the East hand is a little weak for a 2 bid, and the lack of a sixth , or a spot card means that passing is probably best. If East does bid 2, West might be tempted to raise. Note that almost all experts will play that a cue bid of responders suit is natural, but it isn't as definitive whether a cue bid of opener's suit is also natural. Here, where opener has shown a five card suit, 2 would not be played as natural by most players, but when opener has opened in a minor, it's common for a bid in that suit at either the two or three level to be natural.

If East passes, South has a difficult bidding choice. If North had bid 1NT, I think South could just take a shot at 4, as North doesn't have length. Here, with North showing s, South's void isn't as useful, and South might rebid 2 or 3. The hand certainly looks too strong for just a 2 bid, despite holding only 14 HCP. On general principle, with a 6-4 hand, you should rebid your six card major when weak and rebid a four card minor when stronger. However, with 7-4, this isn't as clear. If South had even as much as the Jack, it would be 100% in my view to rebid in s, as South can play opposite shortness by North, but on the actual hand I have sympathy for rebidding 2 and getting passed there. In a contract, declarer can't be stopped from taking 10 tricks, so those who bid aggressively to the game will be rewarded. In fact, the defense must lead a minor to start with or switch to s when in with their trump, or else declarer will make 11 tricks. +450 will be a top for N/S.

It's hard to predict where this hand will end up, whether South overcalls 1 or not. With a pair of singleton Kings, the North hand isn't good enough to open at the one level, and a 2 opening with an outside five card major would also be wrong, so North should just pass for the moment. Over East's 1 opening, the South hand is a questionable overcall when vulnerable, but with this nice a suit, I expect most to bid 1. West can double and North will either make a constructive 2 call to show their nice hand, or might just jump to 4 to put maximum pressure on the opponents. What should West do over either of these bids? It isn't at all clear. The West hand would be much better if the Ace wer in s. On the other hand, with the opponents bidding s aggressively, it looks like West doesn't have much wasted in s, and should have some useful values in the minors. 4 is certainly aggressive, and would be a better bid at IMPS, where the game bonus is key. If North bids 2, East will have more options, and might bid 3, 4 (if this shows long s and a four card suit) or might just start with 3 planning to bid s later. No matter what, North will eventually be bidding 4 and then East will have to decide whether to bid over this, and North will also have to decide whether to bid or defend. Double dummy, 6 will make if declarer guesses to drop the black suit kings, but in practice, a contract will be a little more challenging. The defense does best to lead a forcing declarer to ruff. Declarer can play a to the King and lead a , and when the king shows up, is likely to take a losing finesse. If North now leads a , declarer is in danger of losing control of the hand. Declarer can do well by leading s at this point but some might try to pull trump and end up losing two red suit tricks. There will be tables where declarer makes everything from 9 to 11 tricks, with many matchpoints riding on the number of tricks. A game contract will not score as high as a game, but is much easier for declarer to keep control, and should only have two losers.
