Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

The top score will be given to any E-W pairs who can reach 3 NT from the West hand. This is highly unlikely as the normal contract will probably be 4 by West for +650. This is assuming the correct guess in clubs. If north decides to overcall 2 over West’s opening 1, that will simplify matters for West. He will win the presumed K lead and lead a club to the queen -- if North ducks. This would not be a good play on this particular hand because, if North ducks his ace, West can now make 6 if he guesses correctly. Without the overcall, some brave Easts might venture 6. This can be made without a heart lead. Plus 650 should be a little above average.

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

Some E-W pairs will not get to game. West deals and passes. North will open 1 or 1 NT (weak or strong). East will probably overcall 2 over 1 NT. Otherwise, he will overcall 1 over a 1 opening. South should bid 3, if that bid is available as preemptive. The best West can do is bid 3. This might end the auction although East has an attractive looking hand for offense. There isn’t much to the play in 4 as declarer knocks out the A and ruffs 2 hearts in dummy.

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

This shouldn’t be too hard to get to the top spot of 6 NT. North deals and passes and East opens 1. I would expect most Souths will pass. If South bids 3, that might garner him a few match points if his partner leads a club against 6 NT. North may find a club lead if West tries to be scientific by bidding spades and hearts. But with 22 points he may launch into Blackwood. This may give South an opportunity to double a 1430 response of 5. If E-W get to 6 NT and make +1470, they will share the top score!

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

Although N-S can make slam in four different strains, I doubt many N-S’s will be plus, if they bid slam. With South dealing and opening 1, it will be hard for North to put on the brakes! Ironically, if N-S stay out of slam, they are more likely to make it. If East has interjected a 1 overcall and South is in 3 or 4 NT, he is likely just to take his diamonds and hearts first. He will then have 9 tricks. Can he afford to finesse and risk holding himself to 4 if East has the Q and a spade to cash. He will be rewarded with a great score if he plays safe for 11 tricks.

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

Those fearless souls who open 3 (really? In first seat vulnerable?) May end up with a great score if South just blasts into 6. If he takes the more normal action of asking for key cards and finds none, he should sign off in 5. East still needs to find a club lead to hold this to 5. On the other hand, if North passes and South opens 2 with a 2 NT rebid, West will have to lay down the aA to set a slam. All in all, it is likely that there will be a few +650’s, some +680’s and one or two +1430’s. Those E-W’s who get a plus score will have a top board.
