It's hard to see how E/W can get to the only making game of 3NT on this hand, but it's possible that N/S will help them out in the bidding. East has a normal 1 opening. South doesn't have the right distribution for a traditional takeout double, holding only a doubleton . However, some pairs will have an agreement known as "Equal Level Conversions". Under this agreement, it is allowable to make a takeout double without holding the s, as correcting a bid to s will not show extra strength. This allows for a takeout double holding four cards in the other major and a longer suit. Is the South hand appropriate for this bid? Typically you should have either a six card suit, or a good five card suit, and the South hand doesn't really qualify from that perspective, but this is matchpoints, and South is not vulnerable, so I can see that some will double if their system allows it. If South does double, West will redouble, and the bidding will proceed something like what is shown in the diagram. E/W have the potential to end up in 3NT given that both partners have most of their values outside of the suit, but at many tables will end up in 3 or 4. If South passes, E/W are even more unlikely to end up in a NT contract.

It turns out that a game will require N/S to never find their ruff(s) and for declarer to take advantage of the well placed 10 to make 10 tricks. This doesn't seem likely to me and eight or nine tricks look like the most common result. If South leads a North can ruff, lead a , get another ruff and the defense still has two top trump tricks coming. If South instead leads a , the defense is more hazardous. Let's say declarer wins the Jack and leads a to the Jack and King. North should lead the 6 in order to deny any interest in the suit, and a good North defender can win this and lead a , finally getting the ruff, but any other defense will lead to declarer making 10 tricks, which will be a disaster for N/S. A NT contract is tricky to play, thanks to the poor break, but with everything else working out well, declarer should be able to come home with nine or even 10 tricks.

With a six card suit, 9 HCP and honors to help stop up all the side suits, it's hard to see how West can just settle for a game try on this hand. I expect that the bidding shown will be duplicated at many tables. With a normal break, declarer would have 10 top tricks and would need only a non- lead, or a 4-4 break in the suit. If South leads a , declarer will be relieved to see the suit break, but will soon after get the bad news in s, and finish down one. If South leads any other suit, declarer will win, again get the bad news in s, but can knock out South's stopper, and put the pressure on South to lead a . North will have two chances to signal while discarding on the suit, but will it be clear to North which signal to give South? Declarer can make it harder for N/S by giving up the second trick to South rather than the third, so that North won't know that the suit is ready to run, or even better, ducking the first if that is South's choice of opening lead. I think most good N/S pairs will get this one right even on a non- lead, but there will certainly be some tables at which 3NT makes. -50 for E/W will be a common score, and any conservative E/W pairs who play only 2NT will get a lucky score well above average.

  1. Relay to 2, invitational hand, or weak hand to play 2

One of the least agreed upon bidding principles among experts is whether to open 1 or 1 when holding a minimal opening bid with four s and five s. My personal preference is to almost always open 1 but I know many experts who prefer the opposite approach and open 1. If you prefer to open 1, it is helpful to agree to often raise partner's major with a three card holding. This allows you to rebid 1NT when holding shortness in partner's major, such as on the current hand, knowing that partner should not rebid their major at the two level holding with only a five card suit. I expect that even pairs who prefer opening 1 in general might open 1 on this hand, with such a disparity in suit quality. Also, given the quality of the suit, it wouldn't be unreasonable to rebid 2 even though this usually promises a six card suit.

If South does open 1 and rebid 1NT, N/S have a chance to take advantage of a convention used by many experts. This agreement is an extension of the popular "New Minor Forcing" and is known as "Two-way New Minor Forcing". Under this agreement, after a minor suit opening, a major suit response and a 1NT rebid by the opener, responder's rebid of both 2 and 2 are artificial. 2 is used to show a game forcing hand. 2 is used to force opener to rebid 2, after which responder can pass with a weak hand s, or will bid naturally to show an invitational hand of some sort. The current hand shows the value of this agreement. North knows that South has 2-4 s, and thus can safely bid 2 and then pass the forced 2 bid by South. Note that there are a number of other nuances to the Two-way New Minor Forcing , but I think it is a worthwhile convention to research further and consider adding to your bidding arsenal. The only thing lost is the ability to play 2 when the opening bid has been 1, but the benefits are such that many expert play the convention whenever opener's rebid is at the one level, not just after a 1NT rebid (an agreement known as "XYZ").

N/S are unlikely to go plus on this hand, and in fact will do well just to get to their best and only making game contract of 4. If South declares a NT contract, a lead by West will insure a quick six tricks for the defense. A lead could be even worse, as the defense can now make seven tricks. In any case, it's hard to see how 3NT has any chance to make. With 6-5 distribution, a suit good enough to play opposite shortness and no values in the red suits, it doesn't look like North should stand for a NT contract in any case. Against a 4 contract, given the bidding, a lead looks likely from East, which will ensure two losers, and the contract will come down to the play of the trump suit. Unfortunately, the percentage play in the trump suit is to play a to the 10, rather than playing s from the top, pinning the Jack. So, most good declarers will lose two trump tricks, and go down one in 4. Any East player who leads the Ace will be unhappy as declarer will ruff, lead a to the King, cash two s pitching s, and then will perforce play trump to pin the Jack and make 11 tricks.
