Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

East opens 2. West should be careful to remember that high card points aren't the name of the game when partner has preempted--it's tricks partner needs. A wise move with the West hand is to pass. With only 13 HCP and no source of tricks, don't get carried away.

Kevin Wilson Hand Analysis
WestNorthEastSouth
 Pass23
All pass   
3 by South

East has a classic weak two bid and will open. South has a marginal 3 overcall. It is marginal because partner is a passed hand and the chances for game are somewhat lowered. It is also marginal because it is only a five-card suit. South does have shortness in the bid suit, and will probably want to enter the auction. West has several options. West might pass, double, or bid 3. The hand can bid 3 because the 3 bid is to make. West can raise with any hand he is bidding to make. West might also pass. Pass is reasonable because West knows that the spade fit is only eight cards in length and one of the tenants of the LAW of Total Tricks is never to bid 3 over 3 with only eight trumps. Double is aggressive but also not unreasonable at matchpoints. East expected to make 2 and has a great lead against 3 doubled (A). Partner opened in second position which implies likely more than a dead minimum. West needs to protect against his +110 for 2 making by doubling and defeating the contract two or more tricks. Note that this is the winning table action.
The play will start with three rounds of spades. South may consider discarding a diamond instead of ruffing low and being overruffed. I think South is likely down two, losing two hearts, two spades, and two diamonds.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

The auctions starts 1--1. West passes, and North has to decide what to do with an opening hand but only two spades. 2 means a limit raise or better (that is, spade support) to many players today. 2NT would be natural and show a diamond stopper. South may push to game, may not--depends on the optimism of the player. Happily, diamonds provide two tricks. The great club position helps, too. A heart lead would be unpleasant--if West could get in, but that won't happen on this hand.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

North opens 1, unless he prefers an off-pattern 1NT. Nine tricks will cash when the spades mainly cooperate, but most won't get to game with only 8 HCP opposite opener's 15. They'll mainly settle for a spade partial. Happily, the spades break and the King is on side. Play clubs ahead of trump to manage a ruff on the table.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

West will open 1--12 is the new 13 these days. HE rebids 1NT after East's 1, and East will raise to 2NT. High enough! The heart lead doesn't hurt, but it helps very little. Lead to a high heart on the table and in order to led low toward theQ. Happily, South has the King. You'll also want to lead low toward the diamond honors--those two high hearts are invaluable as entries. Don't squander them by taking the easy heart tricks all at once.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

North has a lovely 17 point 1NT. If East has a way to show Diamonds and a higher suit, E-W will find their terrific heart fit--not that West will want to go very far. North may start with the A. South should signal his club holding--so the chance to dump a club loser on diamonds will be lost.

South opens 1 North responds 1 and South bids 1NT. What will North do now? New Minor Forcing will get a 2NT bid from South, who has an excellent club stopper, and North will resign. Play is tough when the distribution is so wacky in the E-W hands.

It's unlikely that many will preempt with the South hand--and highly likely that West will preempt if South hasn't. 2 should buy the hand at most tables. Whether or not North gets a heart ruff is immaterial--he can't get South back in, so there are four losers--a spade, two hearts and a diamond.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

North opens 1 . South doesn't have a lot of points but with outstanding distribution and wonderful hearts--not to mention an Ace and a singleton--should look for slam. A Splinter would be one way to start. Even with the duplication of values in clubs, North should cuebid the A. That will send South off to the races. The grand slam depends on getting diamonds to work, but 6 should be a common choice.

This will be a difficult grand slam to reach for North and South. South begins with a Splinter bid because the club singleton is the most likely helpful Feature to get North South to slam. North gets excited but has no spade control and may not immediately launch into 4NT. South may bid 4NT but South has already stated his hand so South will probably just cooperate by bidding 4 and let North take control.
North will bid 4NT and South will respond 5. What will North do next? Bidding 5NT is unlikely to help because North has the massive strength and South is very unlikely to be able to visualize 13 tricks. South can't have a specific king to show below 6 because North has both of them! I think I would be creative as North. North could bid 6 to ask for a third round control in diamonds. South probably (but not guaranteed) has three or more diamonds given that they have zero or one club. If South has the Qxx, then North has no losers and 13 tricks.
I predict only about 10% of the field will reach the grand slam.

South opens 1, West overcalls 1, bringing East to life. This hand is certainly worth getting excited about with a cuebid to show a limit raise. the likely opening diamond lead will be very profitable--to declarer. Most of those club losers will vanish.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

South opens 1. West has a nice 2NT jump to show the minors. North doubles to show his values in the minors. East makes a preference to 3 and South won't resist 3. North should try 3NT, since South must have entries outside spades for his one level opener.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

West opens 1 (too strong for NT, especially with a second four card suit). Even his great shape won't induce many Norths to use Michaels Cue Bid . East will make sure his side reaches the heart game. On equal vulnerability, North shouldn't get too frisky.

6 by West

East has only 11 HCP but with a quality suit and four-card trump support, this hand should force game. One key mistake to avoid is responding 1 instead of 2NT. When you have four-card support for a major suit opening, you should always raise the suit. When you fail to raise immediately, partner has a difficult time recognizing the scope and quality of the support. If you respond 1, you will almost always bid 4 at your next opportunity because you will lack a forcing bid that also shows heart support below game.
The 4-0 break is the only thing that scuttles your slam. If hearts were 3-1, you could draw trump and then use the spades (overtaking the Q with the K) to discard a club and a diamond. The final diamond could be ruffed in dummy.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

West opens 1. North has points but no rational bid. East will make a preemptive raise if that's available. Now South has to decide whether or not to use the Unusual NT. If he does, North should come to life with a game bid in one of the minors. He doesn't want to defend below the five level--and he may have to do just that if East won't go quietly.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

North opens 1. When South bids 1, North has to be careful not to bid hearts or NT: the former because of his strength, the latter because of the shape of the hand. West overcalls 2 or doubles to show the unbid suits, leaving North with nothing to say. 2 passes back to South: will he raise diamonds? He isn't strong enough for any other action. East will choose clubs if West doubles. And E-W will be lucky not to get penalty doubled--but it's unlikely. Still, down two vulnerable is a bad enough penalty when the opponents aren't bidding game.

West opens 1 and is raised by East. West wants to try for game, but how? Perhaps a helpsuit game try is the best bet. If West bids 3 to ask for help, what will East think? It's a friendly hand, but who will get to game? Since it depends on the spade honors cooperating, stop short but enjoy the overtricks.

East opens 1. West bids 1 and East 2. When West raises clubs, East happily bids the game, The auction would tell South to lead hearts even if his great sequence didn't make it the obvious choice. Everything else works marvelously.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

West opens 1. East bids 1 and then bids 2NT (11-12 HCP) over West's 1 rebid. West won't want to go further with only 13 points. Without a heart lead, this hand will make a lot of tricks. Even after knocking out the A, East is safe since South will still not want to touch the suit bid on his right.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

North can justify opening 1 but not 2 with that outside strength. If North passes, South then will have the same decision? Preempt too strong or open at the one level or pass? Will East-West get the chance to find their heart fit? That will depend on the bidding of the opponents, ironically. If the hand passes to West, will he want to open this not-so-lovely ten HCP?

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

It's ugly, but East has to decide whether to open 1 (oh, all right, 1) or 1NT with this balanced 15 HCP. With 8 HCP, West has to decide whether to pass, to raise NT, or to relay to clubs. Any of these choices might be right. Since East has no "wasted" spade points, it will make game in clubs, but how to get there? A 1 opener will set the strain, but it's hard to visualize many getting to the 11 trick level.

Hold the West cards. Partner opens 1NT 15-17. How do you handle your response? You might bid Stayman followed by 2NT to invite game or you might just jump to 3NT over 1NT and hope for the best. You can also use a minor suit transfer as a gauge of your chances for game. If you transfer to clubs and partner "likes" clubs, you can bid the 3NT game with a reasonable chance for both six club tricks and nine tricks overall. When partner "doesn't" like clubs, you may be better off stopping in a part-score. Your 6-4 shape argues for a suit contract rather than no-trump. When partner likes the transfer suit, partner should say he "likes" clubs by accepting the transfer and bidding 3. Partner bids 2NT without clubs thus saying he doesn't like the transfer suit. We usually like the minor suit transfer with Ax or Qxx or better, along with any quality four-card or longer support.
I don't see any reason for declarer to guess clubs correctly and will probably lose two clubs and a spade.

I think this will be a fairly common auction at many tables. East may consider a weak two bid in second position. The lack of a sixth spade will deter many from opening 2, but the hand does have some features that are positives. The vulnerability is perfect for a preempt. East's shape is not 5332. It is much better to preempt 5431 or 5422 if you're going to do it with only a five-card suit. I also prefer to have a near maximum when holding only a five-card suit. On the other hand, the spade suit is lacking any intermediates which is a major reason not to preempt.
I see more and more people just passing and not inviting game with 8 HCP when partner opens a 15-17 1NT. I disagree with that plan. I think you should invite with 8 or 9 HCP and generally pass with less. The presence of a quality five-card suit would make me consider just bidding game with 9 HCP and not inviting. The North hand also has excellent intermediates and an ace. Its shape is NOT 4333. If you fail to invite with the North cards, you are really missing the hand evaluation boat! It is a clear invite.
Most declarers will take nine or more tricks. Declarer will win the heart lead and lead a diamond to the Q. When it wins and the 10 is then covered by the J, declarer will have picked up the whole suit for just one loser. With all four jacks behaving, nine or maybe even ten tricks will be more likely than just eight.
