  1. Relay to 3 (Lebensohl)
  2. Forced
  3. Five card suit with a stopper

West has a good hand but N/S are still likely to end up in game although both 3NT and 4 are possible. A few pairs might end up in only a partial. South has a normal 1NT opening for most pairs, but West's bid will vary greatly, as the number of defensive schemes for a strong 1NT opening bid is large. Some pairs will double or bid 2 to show an unknown one suiter, others will be able to bid 2 or 2 to immediately show a one suiter. No matter what West does, N/S need a way to show a suit and offer a choice of games. The most instructive sequence is if West bids a natural 2 bid. Many N/S pairs will be using Lebensohl , where 2NT is a relay to 3 to show various hand types, and that stoppers are implied or denied based on whether North uses the 2NT or not. Not all N/S pairs will be aware of all of the implications of this approach, however. In the bidding, I have assumed that N/S are using lebensohl and the "fast denies" approach. Under the most basic lebensohl, this implies that 2NT followed by 3NT is the same as a direct 3NT bid, but with a stopper. Similarly, 2NT followed by 3 would be Stayman, same as a direct 3 bid, but would promise a stopper. Shown here is the third facet of lebensohl. Namely that bidding 2NT followed by a suit HIGHER than the suit of the interference, shows that suit and again promises a stopper, where a direct bid of that suit at the three level would show that suit and deny a stopper. (All of this would be reversed if you play "slow denies, fast implies"). Note that the promised length in the suit is only five at this point in the bidding. On this hand, with no help for the stopper and a good fit, South should bid 4.

4 can make, but it will take both careful play and a knowledge of a principle known as "Restricted Choice". Assume the defense leads a . Declarer should immediately win the Ace and take a finesse. After a second finesse reveals the bad break, declarer will know that they have a loser and two losers and can't afford a loser. Declarer must wait on pulling a third round of trump. The only place to dispose of a loser is in the suit. The correct way to play the suit is to start with the Ace and then play to the Queen. When the Jack appears on the West hand, declarer has to decide whether to play for the 3-3 break or to finesse the 10 on the third round. East is known to have length, but West is known to have length, so the decision might appear to be toss up. However, this isn't true. This is a less well known example of "Restricted Choice" which more commonly refers to having a nine card fit missing the Q and J. Here, in a seven card fit missing the J and 10, it is a two to one favorite to finesse for the 10. If declarer does that and plays carefully from that point on, they will end up with 10 tricks and a top.

All pass   

E/W can make 2 on this hand, but the vulnerability will make it difficult for them to get into the bidding. North will open 1 and South might be amused at holding all the Queens, but has a normal 2 raise. An aggressive West might bid 2, but it would be dangerous at this vulnerability with a plethora of losers in the side suits. Similarly, East might double after North passes, but without a four card suit, will often just pass the hand out at 2. North is likely to compete to 3 even if E/W get into the bidding. As both 2 and 3 will make, it's critical for N/S to compete to 3 if necessary and to double 3 if E/W get extra pushy. The play is not difficult in either contract, with the suit breaking for E/W and the suit set up perfectly for E/W. I expect +140 for N/S to be the most common score by far and anything other than that will be a good score for someone.

  1. 4-6 HCP

Although 3NT can theoretically make by N/S, it seems unlikely that they can bid it, and it is not an easy contract to make, anyway. Once upon a time, the East hand might have been a borderline opening bid, but the current trend in bidding makes it an automatic opening for almost every pair. South has a very strong hand and will have to choose between bidding 1, planning to double later, or doubling, planning to either bid s next or raise a bid. If South bids 1, there is a very good chance that this will be passed out, as North has no reason to want to bid over this, and East also won't be motivated to reopen. Assuming South doubles, North bids 1, and South now continues with their plan to bid 1, what should North do? South has promised a hand worth about 18-21 points (with more, South would double and then cue bid.) North looks just worth enough to bid again, as the Queen is likely a very useful card. The stopper isn't exactly great, but the length as well as the shortness in the majors makes it likely that East has opened a short , so I think it's ok to bid NT with the North hand. Note that if North had as much as 7-9 HCP, they should show a Game Force by either bid 2, or making some other natural jump bid. Thus, the 1NT bid shows only 4-6 HCP on this auction. So, South really shouldn't be tempted to bid again. A NT contract always has seven easy tricks, and eight are also easy if the defense doesn't lead a . Certainly East's lead won't be obvious, and a is a distinct possibility. In order to make nine tricks, declarer will need to work on endplaying East, which will be easiest if East doesn't unblock one of their high s on the first round of the suit. The play can go in many directions, but I think few declarers will find their way to nine tricks. A contract is much easier to play, as the entry situation is easier to manage, and declarer should end up with nine tricks in s as long as they take a couple of finesses while in dummy with the Queen. Any score better than +120 should be good for N/S.

  1. Game forcing

N/S should be able to get to 4 on this hand. Although the Q is a poor value as a singleton, the South hand is still worth a reverse bid of 2 over North's 1 bid, as the tertiary suit is likely to be a big asset. Many pairs will be playing Lebensohl over reverses, whereby a 2NT bid by North would be used to show a weak hand with other bids game forcing. If you are playing lebensohl, it is important to make a clear agreement about whether a rebid of responders suit is weak, forcing for one round or game forcing. Most experts I think would play that 2 is game forcing here but this does mean that with a weak hand and s only, you have to bid 2NT and play s at the three level. The approach shown in the bidding, whereby 2 is game forcing, works will when you are using weak jump shifts over an opening minor suit bid, as North can't have a weak hand with 6+ s as they would have bid 2 over 1. The situation is more complicated for pairs using some other meaning for a jump shift in response to a minor suit opening. In any case, this is something you should discuss with your regular partners. However they have to do it, North will needs to bid their hand as a Game Force , as two Aces and a six card suit is enough opposite a minimal reverse. Yeah, the void is terrible, as this is South's primary suit, and, as North, I wouldn't be thrilled if South bids NT, but I also can't really see bidding the North hand as weak. South is likely to raise in s even if North shows a weak hand. North will know that South has shortness, which is a mixed blessing. N/S are unlikely to have many quick losers, but North has a lot of s and not all of them will be able to be ruffed in the South hand. It is here that the void looms as a drawback, as North has no help for South's suit to set it up for pitches. North should be able to figure all of this out without seeing the South hand, and thus shouldn't look for slam. With the King offside, only 11 tricks are available, but declarer needs only to ruff one before pulling a third round of trump, as the other losers can be pitched on a and a . +450 should be the most common score for N/S by far.
