Who needs a diamond stopper? East has ten HCP and a spade stopper, along with some diamond length. Enough to bid 1NT!

Making 1NT takes a bit of technique plus noticing that the 9 is a third stopper in the suit! After a likely Q lead, declarer can win the lead, test and happily run hearts, on the last of which South will have difficulty discarding. No matter. A diamond exit will create an inescapable endplay for declarer's ninth trick one way or another -- there are too many variations to show them all, but after six tricks in, declarer sits back and awaits a present.

Who needs a diamond stopper? Part two. East has some values, including likely two heart stoppers, and may offer 1NT in a competitive auction. Thanks to West for the two diamond stoppers, eight tricks come home when the spade suit is properly played for four tricks by finessing twice against the jack. Strangely, the jack is the more important card, for finding it South will ensure that the suit runs, while finding the king is not as productive. Quite novel, but the key to that conclusion is the exceptional spade spots in the West hand.

It is, of course, somewhat possible for North to mess up the works by ducking the K while enticing declarer to expend his heart stoppers for a second entry. That is: Win the diamond lead, hook the Q, finesse the 8, HOLDING! use the A to take a second spade finesse, and the roof caves in!

Well done, North!

There is no "right way" to bid this hand. Instead, the system adopted by each partnership will dictate the auctions, but South will evaluated the hand as at least nearly game-forcing and North will have the obligation to reveal approximate hand strength and fit. In the diagrammed auction, the 2 opener is met with a 2 waiting bid and after the 2 natural rebid (not "Kokish"), different partnerships may allocate different hand values to 2NT or 3NT responders' rebids, but 3NT seems to convey valuable cards and distribution without a fit. Then, South might rebid 3 to check on a fit there, but 3NT by North would deny interest in either red suit while confirming black suit values. Then 6NT seems clear enough.

Systemic variables might arise from strong artificial 1 openers and systemic differences showing different point count balanced hands by responder, but ultimately the same considerations should prevail and result in a small notrump slam.

A spade lead will give South concern in the nature of entries, but they can be overcome with an almost invisible resource: win the lead and make the unfortunate choice of running the J, losing. On the continuation of another spade, declarer must only notice that the 8 is an entry to dummy!! Win the second spade, unblock the A and Q, return to the dummy's 8, pitch a second losing diamond (the first went on the second spade) and claim!

Look at those luscious tens, nines, and even eights in the North hand! 2NT is a quite reasonable upgraded invitation, but even so, South will surely decline. Despite North's valiant effort, the game will be missed at every table.

Nine tricks are rather difficult and won't always be gathered, but 120 will be easy enough. However, a quick examination:

A spade lead will cost west a trick when ducked around to the T. Three spade tricks for declarer!

A heart lead will cost a trick, thanks to the heart spots. Three heart tricks for declarer.

A diamond lead will cost a trick, and if East covers the 9, another is spent.

A club lead does not cost a trick directly, but it helps establish the "long" club in dummy.

Having spades as trumps gives declarer a couple of additional opportunities to avoid losers, which, when coupled with a very favorable trump split and the lucky positioning of the trump king, allows 4 to outscore 3NT in a 4-3 fit. Not a contract that will be reached often. 3NT will be the normal spot, and will make with some regularity, especially on a heart or club lead. A spade lead would prove most difficult for declarer, provided North withholds the king.

South refrained from opening a hard to handle 2 opening despite being tempted to so do, on the theory that with so much distribution and fewer than 2 HCP, the auction would not die. Mission accomplished, and slam still not considered by North despite being happy about the improved contract -- spade support is a lot better than the diamond support!

When the diamond king can be ruffed out and the spade king onside, twelve tricks are in -- not entirely surprising, but not anything that could be counted on during the bidding, either.

East-West will surely subside and not insult South with a double, understanding the power proclaimed in the auction.

Raising on three trumps two two honors (count the T as an honor!) is very reasonable with a side singleton. North "tried for game" with the 3 call, and when South declined, settled for game, having had slam interest in reality, not merely game.

Craig Hemphill Hand Analysis
WestNorthEastSouth
PassPass11
Pass1NTPass2
PassPassPass 

North has a near opener, but the singleton K is downgraded, and pass correct. When South overcalls, North must express values. 2NT is possible, and the K is a good card, but still, it is a singleton and communication between the hands might be difficult, so 1NT is enough.

When South rebids 2, the auction should fizzle and 140 will be a normal score when the diamond finesse loses.
