Although East thoughtfully paved the way for West to cooperate at the five level, and despite West's generally poor hand and partial club "fit," it is unlikely that West will take the save because of the four spades and the K, precious little, but SOME defense, and one might well be afraid of the five level with zero working HCP on offense.

4 making four ought to be routine, but South might not be as imaginative as our view, and might not bid 4. But really -- a singleton heart and partner having bid voluntarily?

Suppose West meekly passes (hardly ever a good idea, holding a fit) -- North jumps to 2 and then just try to hold South back! And East has no ideas that West has a semblance of a fit. Bid West, bid!

East has a hand that should bid Stayman, hoping to be able to pass a major suit response (approximately a 60% chance to find one). If West bids one, great. If West does not bid one, agree on the workings of your favorite garbage/crawling/trash Stayman after 2. I like 2, telling partner to pick a major, "darn*@ it!" 2, instead, is the old fashioned 54xx invitational hand. But some prefer that after the 2 denial, 2 is to play, 54xx. Those folks seem happier guaranteeing the 5-2 and hoping for the 5-3 fit, at the expense of a descriptive invitation. For them, they must bid 2NT with the 5=4 major hands, happy for their gains on the weak distributional opportunities.

Pick your poison. Know your options. Talk to your partner.

What West on this planet would dream that the motley collection of queens and disjointed kings and lack of fit would make game opposite a third seat preempt?? I would not.

So SOuth should be able to steal with a fitting partner but an unfortunate plethora of losers.

Nothing will hold West back, having had partner make a pleasant sound over a weak two bid.
Nothing should.

17 HCP might be nice, and one might dream of slam after partner opens the bidding, but let's get real -- you need partner to have about 16+ HCP if holding a balanced hand, and the 2NT rebid says 12-14. There ain't no slam, folks.

Nothing breaks, either. On a spade lead, you would normally hold up once or twice, to sever the defensive communications. However, If South leads a spade and on the 9 North plays the queen, the spade spots are good for another stopper, so you need not hold up at all! Win and lead clubs.

Making four.

The Rule of Seven and other considerations regarding holdup plays do not apply if the spots in the suit will create another stopper by force of rank.

Some folks take the Losing Trick Count too literally -- After a single raise, the admonition is simply to bid game with a five loser hand. Well..... is South's hand good enough to bid game? NO! One ace? Disjointed side honors? Questionable honors in three suits? Rethink that guideline and modify it to times when you have clearly working honors and perhaps not a 5422 hand, infamously less playable than 5431 patterns.

Make a game try in the Qxxx suit and honor thy partner's decision.

East has too good a hand to pass, especially with West chirping at the two level. And yet... how?

The LAW of Total Tricks tells us to compete to the level of the total number of trumps in the two hands when you can estimate the opponents' number of trumps. That is surely ten or possibly eleven. EW have just 8 trumps, most likely, for West, with values, did not open 2.

So does that mean East should pass? No. There are other considerations. In the first place, West must have a fit of some sort for at least one of the minors on this auction. With one or two spades and five hearts, there are six minor suit cards -- or seven -- in the minors. Wherever those residual cards are located, they are working overtime.

So we have a known double fit and the number of trumps in any one suit is not the total picture. Increase your estimate of tricks by virtue of the double fit.

Can we make a bid that will enlist partner's cooperation? 5 is not very definitive, other than suggesting heart length that really does not exist. 5 would deny holding a heart fit, and emphasize clubs beyond the mere four cards actually held.

4NT!! Can't be Blackwood -- did not open 2, and partner has passed. There is no established fit. Ergo, not Blackwood. Must be TAKEOUT. Must show three suits. Must show a heart tolerance, else 5 or 5.

West cannot bid the slam, but might actually sense it. 5 seems like a descriptive bid, and then East gets to choose -- play diamonds? Play hearts?

Your choice, but the point I wanted to deliver was that 4NT was the bid of choice. what if West had a ton of clubs? Then, over 4NT, 5 might be the safe spot, and the idea was cooperative, not dictatorial by East.

A jump raise in competition is preemptive, not a limit raise or values, and West's hand qualifies! Four trumps and a singleton should suffice for the bid. I read once, was converted, and am a believer, that failure to raise partner with four trumps is a criminal offense.

So for those who still play in the mid-twentieth century style, where a jump raise is forcing or at least of limit raise value, what to do when you hold values and support? CUE BID! That shows limit raise or game values plus support. Or make a simple raise as if you had the auction 1 - P - 2.

Then what to do when holding good values and your own suit? A) bid the suit with constructive values, or make a jump shift with a really good six card suit and intermediate values. YES, it is at least a one-round force. You could look it up.

So a jump raise is preemptive, and West hoped to give partner a couple of club tricks along with trump comfort, but alas, there is but one club ruff and the game, reasonably bid by East with his "five-loser" hand, will fail by one trick -- West needed a second entry to take both winning finesses -- pick the heart finesse or the spade finesse, because you have only one dummy entry.

Unlucky for East, perhaps. With the heart finesse working, all you really needed was trumps 2-1.

Meanwhile, plus 100 is not a good board for NS in theory, for 4 makes for plus 130!!

It pays to bid your big fits -- sometimes in odd ways. See Law of Total Tricks!
