Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

It is very unlikely that anyone will bid 7 NT, the top scoring contract. Probably, many will not bid slam. After all, there are 16 hcp’s opposite 15. South passes and West will open a strong NT. North passes. East may just bid 3 NT, or Puppet Stayman if available. I think I would bid minor suit Stayman if I had that bid in my arsenal. In my case, I would bid Baron 2 NT. This asks partner to bid his 4 card suits up the line. He would respond 3 diamonds. Now, east can make some move toward slam. West has really good cards when his partner supports diamonds. There is no way to count 13 tricks so E-W will probably settle for 6. This should score pretty well. Once again, the no trump bidders will do well, especially if they bid 6 NT.

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

West deals and passes. North will likely open 2 NT, in spite of the flaws. South might take a chance with Stayman, depending on how confident he is in his partner’s declarer play! Although not a good contract, some might take nine tricks. If East makes a somewhat normal lead of the Q, that will be the end of the defensive prospects in that suit. Otherwise, declarer will fail miserably. It is possible to end play West if declarer guesses the distribution correctly, he can first knock out the A, then cash the A, K. Next he plays four rounds of clubs and West is in. With some good card reading, he may come to nine tricks and a top board.

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

It’s hard to predict the final contract. The contract could conceivably be played in clubs, diamonds or NT. The slam bidders may be pushed there by too aggressive bidding by N-S. East deals and will open 1. South likely overcalls 1, though some may bid 2. West makes a Negative Double and North raises to either 3 or 4. Over 2, 4 is probably the right bid. This may goad East in to slam. It will appear that West has cards in hearts and diamonds. This makes bidding 6 a reasonable shot. In the unlikely event that West becomes declarer in 3 NT, North will lead a spade, West should pitch a diamond on the first trick. Now, if South doesn’t cash his A, he doesn’t get it! Slam bidders will score above average.

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

Due to the fortunate lie of the spades and hearts, 4 is the winning contract on the E-W hands. One possible auction is:

P - 1 - P - 1, P - 2NT - P - 3, P - 3 - P - 4, P - P - P

3 being checkback to see if East has three hearts or four spades (or both). South may be reluctant to lead a diamond. A spade lead seems normal. This will help East. After drawing trumps, he must lead a low heart to the jack, playing for honor doubleton on his left. Presumably, North will win and return a diamond. This will set up two tricks for the defense. But, as luck would have it, the Q will drop under the ace. Plus 420 should be a fine score for E-W. Some may just bid 3 NT where they should be held to nine tricks.

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

This is a tough hand to predict. South deals and passes, as does West. A vulnerable North should probably pass. However, in these times where pre-empts run rampant, a few will open 2. East will double and South can up the ante to 3. West doesn’t really have enough to bid 4. When the auction gets back to East, he will likely double again. Now, West can compete to 4. With the Q dropping doubleton, and one diamond honor in front of the ace, declarer should score +620. The only obstacle would be for South to play the 8 under the ace. This would give west the option of trying to smother the doubleton 10 in South’s hand -- an unlikely play.

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

West deals and passes. North opens 1. East should overcall 1 NT. He can’t make a take-out double with only two spades. South should bid something. If he competes with 2, West would like to bid 2. However, this might be treated as a transfer. If it is not, 2 might be the final contract. South could back back in with 2. However, East would surely compete with 3. The other alternative would be for South to just bid 2 over the 1 NT overcall. This would be a winning bid if it becomes the final contract. The -100 would beat the E-W score of +110 in either 2 or 3. Playing weak NTs, North could become declarer in 2 and score an excellent + 110 for N-S!
