EW will not find a profitable sacrifice in 4 doubled, so West is better advised to keep silent with the quacky, loser-infested hand. South has no more than a single raise and follows the sound advice, "support with support."

There are two losers and a club finesse to take. When the latter succeeds, plus 450.

Pass3All pass 

South has 4333 pattern and eight losers -- not accepting game tries with that sort of hand.

To make four, declarer must double finesse in spades and find the J. some may make just eight tricks NS, let alone ten.

Of course, finding the J may be a matter of technique, if the play leads to a succesful discovery of the trump suit, then an endplay may be engineered after trumps are resolved. Thus,

Heart to the ace and a heart back, won by declarerl
Spade to the ten.
Diamond to the ace
Spade to the queen.
Spade.
Diamond won by declarer
Heart ruffed (important and necessary!!)
Diamond.

Now the defense must open the clubs, to their detriment, or provide a ruff-sluff for contract.

Good technique beats good guessing. (Plus luck in the trump suit, of course!)

North won't be introducing clubs when holding seven hearts, while EW have an easy map to 4, just making despite the horrific spade split.

Seven tricks for EW in a heart contract leads to plus 800 and all the matchpoints. West's double of 3 for penalties is based on East's penalty double of 3!

The defense will be precise: spade to the ace, diamond through, ruffing the third diamond with a suit preference signal 3 on the third round of that suit, a club back and another heart ruff.

Precision bombing!

West has a variety of winning choices. Pick the winning 3NT? Tough. Second best 4? Impossible. Third best 4? Likely for us plodders.

The five level usually belongs to the opponents, but perhaps on this auction and South's holdings, 6 is preferable. After all, North did show a fit in both minors with 4NT, and EW are vulnerable, while NS are not. On the other hand, do you think you can actually defeat 6??

Guessing games.

  1. New Minor Forcing.
  2. Four hearts. Better to find a 4-4 heart fit if available
  3. Invitational with five spades, no heart interest

Contrary to popular belief, New Minor Forcing (2 in the present auction) is not limited to the tunnel vision of showing three cards in support of partner. It can and should be used to seek a 4-4 fit in the other major (hearts), usually a preferable contract to a 5-3 fit. It can and should also be used to force game and potentially seek slam in opener's minor suit -- different hand, different auction.

When spades are the first response, New Minor Forcing ought to clarify the heart situation first. Give hearts the priority by showing possession of four in that strain. When a heart fit is found, you will be ahead of those who don't follow this simple procedure.

When hearts are not of interest, responder clarifies. Here, the 2 bid shows just 11 HCP and a fifth spade.

East may pass and should pass, despite holding three spades, when West's strength is defined as less than game forcing and East's values are minimal in HCP and poor in distribution.

If West had a game forcing hand without club support, 3NT would be appropriate over 2, and East would then convert, belatedly but firmly, to 4.

As it is, 2 is a fine and safe contract with no risk of having missed game.

If South held the values for a single raise, spades would not have been introduced. Compare hand number 1!

After bidding 1 and hearing a 2 response, South might just bid 4, but 3 is not far off with such poor trumps.

North will, of course, carry on to game upon the invitation with such nice cards, distribution, and fitting spade honor.

Making five -- what a shame if game is not reached!
