North believes in the LAW of Total Tricks -- and is not vulnerable, so down one doubled might be just fine! The J is worthless, but the ace is a fine asset, as are the five trumps and doubleton club. Despite the redouble and double, North can expect some of South's values to be well-positioned behind the opening bidder.

YES! 3 doubled making for plus 530 should be a fine reward for enterprise. Poor West might have thought of a profit, but only the two trump tricks and the nuisance value of the four trumps have any bearing on the issue. The QJ have no part in this hand.

Tricks are about fit, controls, position, and in this case, ruffing values. Had East just had a trump to lead, three rounds of spades would have been a fine defense. Alas, East could not lead a trump, so North has just enough timing to provide extra tricks in clubs to make the contract.

On the lead of the K, North wins and must lead a club, trick two. East may choose to win, but it is s stronger try to duck, hoping West can get in to lead trumps! Let's say that happens, and West wins the second club and tries to exhaust trumps by playing off three rounds. Because the club suit splits, declarer is home by winning in dummy and leading the third round of clubs, ruffing in hand and establishing two long club tricks. Now declarer can succeed by drawing the last trump, finessing in diamonds, then cashing the A and the two clubs, losing just the small diamond on the last trick.

West has a nice six-loser hand and East's bidding shows a limit raise with three trumps. That little box that says that the redouble "implies" no fit includes a way to show a three-card limit raise. Implication does not mean the same thing as denial. All that is truly denied with the redouble is holding four card support, for that would be a direct raise or a Jordan 2NT with a limit raise and four.

West also inferred that East's redouble was predicated on cards outside of the bid and raised diamond suit, and that suits bidding game very well, indeed.

Without a device to get back to diamonds if East bids 1 or 1NT on the rebid, then West might be well-advised to bid 1 rather than 1, as much as it hurts my preference to bid 1. With an appropriate tool to investigate fully all contracts, such as XY notrump or XYZ , 1 is the choice. But you have to choose a bid that your partnership is comfortable with.

11NT3?

Here is a really nice preempt in action. North overcalled 1NT without a stopper because a double might obtain a spade bid by South (not here -- just hypothetically, as North would have to anticipate the worst case scenario).

Now South has insufficient resources with which to make a noise, and North has had his say.

This preempt worked wonders, keeping NS out of game when two separate slams can make.

NS plus 200 is totally inadequate compensation for the missed bonuses.
