Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

North opens 1 (not 1 with 4-4 in the minors). East bids 1. South may make a disruptive preemptive raise to 3 and West will raise spades--which East will take to game. Make 11 tricks if you: 1) take the spade finesse; 2) Play the A and then a low one and 3) Discard a losing club on the Q.

Lynn Berg typically provides analysis for 299ers on boards 1-18. Additionally, analysis for more advanced players is available for boards 1, 3, 6, 10, and 16.

The Bidding: North's hand falls short of the Rule of 20 and the Suggestion of 22 for a 1st or 2nd seat opener. After East opens 1, South could venture an Unusual 2 Notrump overcall showing the minors. South's poor suit texture decreases the likelihood a sacrifice will be profitable. If North-South don't buy the contract, an Unusual 2NT overcall may make it easier for declarer to play the hand. At tables where South passes, West responds 1NT, planning to show a 3-card invitational raise. East's 2 rebid is natural. East could have a minimum opener or could have almost a Game Force . With a known 8+ card spade fit and 9+ card heart fit, West upgrades their hand. Since East has at most 4 cards in the minors, there may not be any ruffs in the short hand in a spade contract. West prefers playing 4.

At tables where South overcalls an Unusual 2NT, it is common to play an Unusual Versus Unusual defense. Agreements vary about which cue bid shows an invitational or better raise of opener's suit. If West uses a 3 cue bid to show an invitational or better spade raise, North can double to suggest a club lead. If West uses a 3 cue bid to show an invitational or better spade raise, North's failure to double provides a negative inference. East is happy to accept the invitation and places the contract at 4.

The Play in 4 or 4: With the King and Queen onside, declarer has no trouble establishing 11 winners. If East is the declarer, a club lead allows the defense to establish the King as a winner in time to hold declarer to 10 tricks. If West is the declarer, a club lead is ineffective.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

West opens 1 and North bid 2. East has the shape but not the values to double, so he passes. South may make a preemptive raise and buy the hand. West should lead the third round of spade when the dummy's trumps are no higher than the six. Partner will be delighted to ruff with her nine.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

West probably opens 1NT, though 17 HCP and a terrific five card suit is heavy. When the club finesse works, it takes 12 tricks, but that's good fortune and not good management. East will check for a major and bid game.

  1. game forcing, 5-card major ask
  2. no 5-card major
  3. 4 hearts and not 4 spades

The Bidding: The favorable vulnerability suggests aggressively preempting in 1st seat, but few Souths will be eager to preempt on such a weak spade suit. At tables where South passes as dealer, West opens 1NT. The favorable vulnerability may lead North to venture a 3 preempt. It is common to play Negative Doubles over interference. With that agreement, East cannot double for penalty. If hearts are 7-4-0-2 or 6-4-1-2. West will reopen with a double. The risk of passing 3 is West may passout 3 if hearts are distributed 6-4-0-3. If playing a 15-17 1NT range, East knows the partnership has at most 32 HCP. Typically 33 HCP are needed for balanced hands to bid a slam. Given the vulnerability, bidding 3NT is reasonable. If North doesn't preempt, East uses Stayman to look for a heart fit, and places the contract in 3NT. As shown above, many expert partnerships prefer using Low Information Puppet Stayman with game forcing values and just one 4-card major to avoid revealing information about opener's holding in the other major. Either way, East-West arrive at 3NT.

One of the risks of preempting is propelling your opponents to a game or slam which they would not otherwise bid. Here, if South opens 2, West overcalls 2NT. Since West's range is higher, East invites slam. West is happy to accept. With the King onside, 6NT is a top rather than a bottom.

The Play: After knocking out the Ace with the 10 dropping, declarer has 11 winners. The successful finesse against the King provides declarer's 12th trick.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

Rule of 20 mandates a 1 opener with this hand. East will respond 1, and South can overcall spades even with only four on this stellar suit. West finishes his story with 2 and North raises spades. The "boss" suit prevails. West starts with her singleton heart but won't get a ruff unless South leads hearts back hoping for an easy entry to the dummy for the trump finesse.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

East opens 1 (not 1 with 3-3 in the minors). West bids 1 and East 1. Now West will bid 1NT and buy the hand. An opening diamond lead will really be friendly, given the E-W spotsin this suit.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

South opens 1. When West bids 1, what should North do--bid 1 or make a Negative Double . I prefer the former, especially with 7-5. East should certainly come to life. As Bergen famously said, "Points, Schmoints!" East has five card support and a void. What's not to like? There's no reason to make this easy for N-S.

  1. exactly 3 spades

The Bidding: The bidding will be wild on this board. Many North-South pairs will push East-West to their making 5 contract. East has an interesting choice on their second bid.

After South opens 1, West overcalls 1. North responds 1. Unless West is 6-5, East knows North-South have at least a 9-card spade fit. East has a choice between preempting in diamonds or introducing their heart suit. Preempts work best when the opponents have game or when they haven't found their fit. Here, North-South have likely found their spade. It isn't clear which side, if any, has a game. If East preempts 3 or 4 and North-South bid 4, it will be difficult for East-West to determine whether to pass, double, or bid 5. An immediate jump to 5 gives North-South a guess, but would be unfortunate if the Par Contract is 4. A slower approach seems best. East advances to 2. Since everyone is bidding, West will not get carried away.

South makes a Support Double to show 3-card spade support. West has nothing to say. East's 2 bid decreased the likelihood North can establish heart winners and increases the likelihood of defensive overruffs. It may be difficult to make 4. North prefers converting South's Support Double for penalty. East jumps to 4. West expects East to have few cards in the black suits. West's AQ seems well positioned. West expects few, if any, losers in the black suits. West can envision a Cross-Ruff . West backs their judgment by bidding 5. Now North must guess whether to sacrifice at 5.

The Play in 4: East is likely to lead the 10, top of an honor sequence. Declarer splits dummy's honors. Declarer ruffs West's Ace. Declarer is relieved when the Ace isn't ruffed. East wins declarer's heart continuation. West isn't eager to discard the 10 to encourage a club shift. A common expert defensive agreement is to use a known long suit to signal Suit Preference . With that agreement, West discards the 3 to ask for a club shift, finessing dummy's King. When declarer drops the Jack, West can see the potential Cross-Ruff. West cashes the Ace and continues a spade to decrease ruffing power. Declarer can ruff 1 heart loser and can discard a heart on dummy's remaining diamond honor, but declarer's 5th heart is a loser. Declarer loses a trick in each suit.

The Play in 5: Declarer cannot avoid losing a heart. Declarer has 2 potential club losers. A club can be discarded on the Ace. The club finesse is successful as expected. Declarer doesn't have a club loser. Declarer cannot avoid losing a diamond trick. Declarer cannot handle North holding KQ6. Finessing against South is a Safety Play guarding against South holding 3 diamonds. Here, the Safety Play is necessary to score 11 tricks.

South opens 1NT. North checks for a major and bids the NT game. A low spade lead gives nothing away--nice of pard to have the J10. Declarer can score the 13th diamond if he's willing to lose two tricks. Then the club suit will yield three tricks if you play East for the Q10--which he is unlucky enough to hold.

North opens 1 and will play 2 at most tables. East has no lead he really likes, though a low club won't be costly because of partner's complementary cards in the suit. Trump break, thank goodness. A low diamond played early will probably score the K--second hand low is so automatic for many players.

East is way too good for 1NT and opens 1. South nay double, may bid 2. Either way, I hope E-W have a preemptive 3 raise in their repertory--this is the hand to love it with.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

The Gambling 3NT is not available with the K (at least as many play it), so East opens 1, rebidding 3 over West's 1. West can make one more stab at playing spades, but East won't cooperate. Will they get to the diamond game? 'Taint easy. Even though West has points, he'll worry about those hearts, especially when he knows partner is short in spades.

The Bidding: After East opens 1, West responds 1. North's most flexible action is doubling for takeout. West's 1 response increases the likelihood East's singleton King is valuable. With the potential of 7 diamond winners, East's hand cannot be characterized as a typical minimum opener. Jumping to 3 would help communicate East's trick taking potential, but would poorly place East if West doubled for penalty. Rebidding 2 seems best. South has nothing to say.

West's 3 bid is game forcing. It could be natural or could be a notrump probe. Lacking a heart stopper, East cannot bid 3NT. East didn't make a Support Double to show 3 spades. So 3 here should suggest a doubleton spade. East has a partial heart stopper. Bidding 3, suggesting a partial heart stopper or a non-positional heart stopper, seems best. West, lacking even a partial stopper, bids 3. East is hesitant to offer 4 as a final contract. Lacking a heart or a club entry, East's diamond suit may be stranded in a spade contract. Bidding 4 is risky. West may be willing to abandon the Game Force opposite East's 2 rebid and a failed search for 3NT. West doesn't have values in the red suits. So their black suit honors should be strong. Jumping to 5 seems best.

The Play: South has a marked heart lead. Declarer ruffs the 3rd round of hearts, draws trump, unblocks the spades, and crosses with a club. Declarer's losing club is discarded on dummy's Ace.

E-W will have little opposition in their march to the heart game, even though North overcalls 1. Poor South doesn't get a vote on this one. Limit club losers by leading low toward the Q10. There's more than one way to finesse for the King, especially when you're also missing the Jack.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

If there are three passes to South, he may elect to open a fourth seat 2, showing an opening hand and a decent six card suit. North will try 3NT and South can pass with a clear conscience. When declarer leads a low diamond toward the dummy and the J pops up, he may reasonably finesse West for that card--especially since West feels like the more dangerous opponent (North doesn't know the true heart situation).

E-W will end up in 3NT. South not unreasonably leads a low spade and dummy "splits" the honors, scoring three spade tricks. Then the diamond finesse works and the club honors can be handled for only one loser--a friendly hand for declarer.

South opens 1, rebidding 1NT over North's 1 answer. North can blast right to the spade game now. What will East lead? The 10? Surely not a diamond. A low club isn't too appealing since South opened that suit.

South opens 2. West has the pattern bit not quite enough points to double--not that North will care on this hand. North happily bids the spade game. West doesn't have an easy lead, though he will be rewarded if he takes a chance and leads a low club.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

There are 13 tricks to be had, even in NT after a heart lead--since both minor suit finesse work and the spades split well enough. Bid the slam in NT? East may well when West opens a Rule of 20 1. Playing order will matter. Cash the KJ and the A. If South doesn't cover, overtake with the dummy's J and have a lot of fun cashing diamonds and spades before you take the club finesse if you still need it. Gulp. That's a lot of luck on one hand.

David Loeb Hand Analysis
WestNorthEastSouth
1Pass2Pass
3Pass3Pass
4Pass4NTPass
51Pass52Pass
63Pass6All pass
  1. 1 or 4 key cards
  2. Queen ask
  3. Queen and King, no King

The Bidding: West's hand meets the Rule of 20 and the Suggestion of 22 for a 1st or 2nd seat opener. After West opens 1, East's 2 response is a Two Over One Game Force . It is common for East's 2 response to promise 5+ hearts. 2/1 Styles vary by partnership agreement. Some partnerships play the Bergen style and show their distribution after a Two Over One Game Force . Others use the Lawrence style and use a 2M rebid as the default.

If East-West use the Bergen style, West rebids 3 to show 5+ hearts and 4+ diamonds. East is too strong to bid 3NT. East wants to ask about the Queen. So setting spades as trump seems best. West's Losing Trick Count of 6 suggests cooperating with a potential slam try. West's void in partner's suit is a negative. Bidding 4 seems best. East bids 4NT Roman Keycard , West shows 1 or 4 key cards. West doesn't show their void in partner's suit. East asks about the Queen, as planned. West's 6 bid shows the Queen and the King. It denies the King. Ruffs may be useful. East prefers 6 to 6NT.

If East-West use the Lawrence style, West cannot rebid 3 because it would show extra values. So West uses the default 2 rebid. East rebids 2NT, hoping to find a club fit. East's 2NT rebid shows stoppers in the unbid suits. West's 3 rebid shows a minimum opener with 5+ spades and 4+ diamonds. East is too strong to bid 3NT. So East bids 3. West has a choice between bidding 3NT, 4, and 4. Since East didn't offer 3NT as a final contract, East either has slam interest or wants to offer a choice of games. West isn't eager to play in 3NT. Bidding 4 seems best. It isn't clear whether this is a cue bid or showing extra diamond length. East's 4 bid is clearly a cue bid. East would have rebid 3 if they were interested in playing in hearts. South could double to suggest a heart lead, but it isn't clear a heart lead is beneficial. West isn't eager to cooperate with a void in partner's suit. West offers 4 as the final contract. Now East must guess whether to proceed. Using the Lawrence style, auctions after the 2M default rebid can sometimes be awkward.

The Play in Spades: Declarer wants to establish diamond winners. When declarer cashes the Ace, North shows an odd count. There is no upside for South to cover the 10. If declarer believes the count signals, declarer may prefer attempting to establish diamonds with a ruff. If declarer ruffs a diamond, the 4-1 spade break allows North to score a trump trick. If declarer finesses against South for the Queen, declarer scores all the tricks.

The Play in Notrump: Looking at just the East-West hands, you would prefer to be in a spade contract. Here, the fortunate lie of the cards allows declarer to score all the tricks in a notrump contract.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

North opens 1 and South raises. South hasn't enough points to bid hearts--and besides has spade support. East can over-ruff dummy (she has the 10) if West leads a third round of clubs.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

West opens 1NT and will have a miserable time with it, the only consolation being that N-S must be able to make something. With a spade lead, he'll only be down one. If West should open 1 (ugh), North will double and South can happily bid NT. In that case, West leads the Q and East should obligingly drop the J so West can continue the suit with assurance.
