Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

The normal auction would be for North to open 2 and South to respond 2. North probably rebids 2 NT. South, if playing Puppet Stayman , could bid 3 on the off chance that his partner held 5 hearts. South will now settle for 3NT. The play will be interesting because of the club suit. If North leads a club to the 10, West MUST duck. That way, North will score at most two club tricks. If East holds the King doubleton, he should play it the first time the suit is led. This would give North a guess the next time he leads it if East follows low. Anyway, I would rather be in 5 than 3 NT. With good guesses, North can make 4 NT. If N-S get to slam in clubs, good guessing will allow South to make 6. Plus 430 should be a very good score for N-S, while +920 should be a top.

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

It is possible that this hand will be passed out at some tables but unlikely in this day of aggressive bidders. Strong club players (Precision that is) would probably open either the East or South hand. If East opens 1, South might overcall 1. West will either make a Negative Double or bid 1 NT. If North raises to 2, East should pass. However, he might like the fact he has heart shortness and bid 2. It is possible West will raise to 3 which will be set. Plus 110 for E-W is their best option. If East passes and South opens 1 and North responds 1 NT, E-W must defend carefully but will probably get a poor result for beating it either 1 or two tricks. A plus score for N-S will be huge!

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

It is very doubtful that N-S will bid seven on this hand. Even if South can find out North has two key cards for hearts outside of the spade suit, he can also find out North does not have the K. This should lead to a comfortable 6. The safe line of play (leading the J and passing it) will allow declarer to make seven but who would want to be in a grand slam with just 29 points and a four-four fit?? With North opening 1 and probably bidding 2 over South’s 2 bid, it is almost a certainty South will drive the hand to slam in hearts. Any pair not reaching at least 6 will be on the bottom in scoring. Likewise, any pair bidding and making seven hearts for +1510 will be on top.

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

The auction will probably go 1 - P - 2 - P, 2 - P - 3 - P, 3NT, all pass. Although it doesn’t matter on this hand, if south leads a heart, declarer should stick in the queen. So much for a free finesse. If you play the nine and north plays the jack, you are suddenly out of entries to your spades, when you get them set up. So, you win the Q, cash the A and lead a heart to the king. Set up the spades and you will have an entry to run them. You will emerge with 11 tricks a fine score. If south leads the Js you must duck the first one to avoid losing 2 clubs.

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

Even though declarer can make 4 different games - spades, hearts, clubs and NT, the best game turns out to be playing in a broken five card suit (hearts) rather than a solid five card spade suit. In hearts, declarer can win the presumed diamond lead, finesse the heart cash the ace and run the spades. This will yield 12 tricks but may not be the most popular contract. It is doubtful anyone will bid 6 but, if they do, they will have a top board for +1430. This 29 point slam will be hard to bid.
