1 2 DblPass
3 Pass3NTAll pass

East opens 1 with 14 points, just a tad shy of a notrump upgrade. South can overcall 1 with a good-enough suit. I love overcalling on the 1-level as it conveys information that might get lost otherwise. West's 1 only promises four of them. North raises to 2 . East now makes a Support Double(s) since the auction is still below the 2-level of partner's suit. South passes. Now West has a decision to make. What would 3 mean? It could be to play, it could be invitational, it could be forcing. I don't think partner will know any better than we do. That said, I wouldn't be unhappy if partner passed or bid a game so maybe it's safe here. East isn't sure either so decides that with diamonds covered, he could try 3NT. North might think about doubling this contract to get a heart lead. The K doesn't have to be in West's hand but it rates to be.

If North doesn't double, the contract will come down to the opening lead. If South leads a fourth-best diamond, declarer can win with the 9 and set up a diamond for her ninth trick. The lead of either the J or a heart will find declarer a trick short and possibly down two if she tries to make by taking a spade finesse.

  1 Pass
1NT3 All pass 

East opens 1 . In 3rd or 4th seat, I'd open 1 but not 1st. South shouldn't overcall at this vulnerability. West bids 1NT and now North jumps in with 3 . East passes and South hopes that partner isn't making some kind of Western cuebid . It shouldn't be since North could double and bid a suit to make life easier for partner. Sometimes you have to use logic to interpret partner's bid. Also, on this auction, it's very unlikely that North has a running club suit as West usually holds clubs for a 1NT call. South passes. West could now balance with a takeout double, but wouldn't be very happy if partner decided to pass. I think pass is reasonable playing against vulnerable opponents.

The play in 3 isn't that complicated. Declarer will lose one diamond, two hearts and a club. It's hard to see declarer finding a way to lose more than that. In principle, though, after three rounds of hearts to start, declarer should play a club early so that she can get back to her hand after taking some spade finesses. See the problem if declarer plays a diamond to dummy, and takes two spade finesses, she has to find a safe way back to hand that doesn't allow East to overruff. Here, it doesn't matter because if the East ruffs out the third spade, it's with a natural trump trick.

   Pass
1 3 PassPass
DblPass3 All pass

South passes and West opens 1 . North now could bid 2 , but at these colors and with partner a passed hand, it's better to make life difficult for the opponents with a 3 call. East could have raised 1 to 2 , but can't stretch to bid 3 here. South passes (with 3 card support, I suppose you could raise, but if you do, you'll be unhappy if you wind up in 4 doubled or if the opponents bid 4 ). West balances with double and then East has to decide whether his hand is worth anything more than 3 . I don't think so, but partner is vulnerable and forcing to the 3-level without knowing about our fit. South passes and West should probably quit while she's not too far behind. Yes, she has great values, but she's already shown that. As far as she knows, this could be misfitting.

North leads the K against 3 and declarer will have to use the one dummy entry immediately. I think that while in dummy, it makes sense to take a diamond finesse. When that wins, declarer can try one round of trump and sees the Q. Very difficult from there to know what to do next. Declarer could try anything including low spade. She should probably just try to get out of her hand but might do it by playing A and another diamond. the defenders probably end up with two clubs, a diamond a and a spade, but it could get worse if the defense is able to tap declarer.

  1. support

West opens 1 . I hate doubling with the North hand. I also hate passing with the North hand. Those are the only two options other than an, "I'm sick of not playing any hands" 1NT. East could pass, or bid 1 , but I'd probably try 1 . South bids 2 and West makes a Support Double(s) . North passes, having bid enough. East is stuck. I would try to stop low by playing 2 . South might bid out to 3 or double, but pass is also reasonable. Everyone else passes happily.

South could lead either a club or a heart. I think a heart seems most likely. Leading a trump is sometimes a good idea when the opponents might need to ruff in the shorter hand (and they only have 7 trump between them). Here though, it likely gives away a guess in the suit. The play gets complicated from that point, it seems like declarer has to draw trump eventually and the 3-3 split will help. Anything could happen on this board.

2NT3 All pass 

Send your children out of the room for this one--it's not for sensitive eyes. North passes and East passes in most systems. South will open the auction in 3rd seat. I think you could open 1 , but that's not very helpful for partner. I would open this nice heart suit in case the opponents wind up taking the contract so that partner knows what to lead. This also has a bit of preemptive value as we'll see. West now passes (and could have overcalled if we opened 1 ). North could simply raise to 2 . Bidding 1 gives you a little more flexibility (and you're not unhappy if partner passes). East passes and South raises to 2 . West and North pass, but East shouldn't sell out to this. Being non vulnerable makes balancing with a takeout double clear cut. South passes and West's 2NT shows the minors, which would allow West to play in a 4-4 club fit if it existed. North bids 3 following the LAW of Total Tricks and with a double-fit with partner.

East is on lead and unhappy. A diamond could be right, but it's a scary suit to lead from. Holding four little hearts, though, might cause East to try getting aggressive thinking dummy will be able to take a lot of heart tricks. If the East-West pair cashes the first 5 tricks, then declarer needs to guess the spade suits to escape for down one. Eight ever nine never is a catchy rhyme, but only right (in the case of nine) a little more than half the time. If declarer has a hunch that East is short in spades, she might suffer -200.
