Balancing 1NT after an opponent's major suit opening is an art form. Much has been written about the point count range that should be used: Most current players use 11-14 HCP or a close approximation.

As to distribution, 1NT should certainly be in the "balanced" family, 4333, 4432, 5332. It's hard to imagine a 5422 hand worthy of 1NT, but with some effort one could be constructed.

Be sure to visualize what is going on in the hand. If you have excessive length in the suit opened and shortness elsewhere, you should be wary of chasing your opponent into a better strain.

Shortness in the opponent's suit suggests doubling, but doubling also suggests bidding the other major. The art, or judgment, is deciding whether to balance 1NT without a stopper, but with a generally balanced hand. 1NT is often the winner, even lacking a full stopper! Edgar Kaplan suggested balancing 1NT with 8-12 HCP, with or without a stopper, but that seems light in HCP these days.

I'd balance 1NT with the East hand without worrying much about the lack of a full stopper. After all, if partner has as little as Qxx or Txxx, we actually stop hearts!

The other way to get to notrump is for East to balance with a double, risking a spade response, and having West bid 1NT.

nine tricks are available thanks to a double heart stop, 3-3 clubs, and a diamond suit that can be set up quickly.

Straightforward. South attempts to compete, west doubles negatively, East shows a balanced hand with minimal (for sure!) values, and West bids game.

Nine tricks are easy enough, after a Q lead. East will set up a couple of spade tricks, add two hearts and five clubs, and try to find a tenth. Not likely.

The defense may be difficult here. For one thing, what should North lead? A small spade (fourth best) seems rather awful in the light of day. A better idea is to test the waters with the K (asking attitude), and seeing the negative 3, trying to find a "safe" shift.

At this stage both a spade continuation and a heart shift seem out, so North should shift to a minor, diamonds, perhaps, on the notion that leading away from a jack is for some reason bad. Some days that is true, but today the club shift is the winner, for South has such good clubs.

Then declarer might lead a spade to set up the top trick in that suit, giving North some rope to provide more help.

Without a club lead or immediate shift, it seems that declarer has an easy path to nine tricks.
