With 6-5 hands, it's extremely important that you have a plan before making your first bid. People are terrified of "losing" the major, but when you pick up a hand that is 6-5, you need much less to reverse. Not only is the North hand strong enough to reverse, but holding the spade suit and a singleton heart, a reverse probably won't even be necessary. After a 1 opening, East makes an aggressive 2 overcall not-vulnerable. South now makes a Negative Double . Be careful! 2-level Negative Double don't necessarily show BOTH majors, but might be made with two places to play. West probably won't bid with a fit, but only 2 points. Now North is too good to simply bid 4. 3, at least initially, is just a forcing bid showing a big hand and looking for more information from partner. After this, the auction gets fuzzy. South will probably show the longer heart suit with 3. It's still not clear to North whether South has spades at all, but 3 should be forcing after opener's cuebid. South probably makes a simple raise. Now North can picture a slam opposite very little from partner: J1042 and the K doubleton or a singleton diamond would all probably be enough. I would probably bid keycard and then make a try for 7. South will be uninterested in a grand slam.

The play is pretty straight-forward, particularly with spades 2-2. I think it's best to win the opening lead and draw one round of trump with the A, followed by the A and another diamond to see how that suit splits. Once diamonds are known to be 3-2, declarer can win whatever they send back, ruff a diamond high in dummy, draw trump and claim. Had diamonds been 4-1, this would have also protected against 3-1 spades.

East opens a normal 2 with a maximum at this vulnerability. South passes and West knows that her side will end up in game. The question is: which one? The heart suit is self-sufficient enough that blasting 4 might be right. I've shown the more drawn out auction. 2 is forcing (I know some players don't play it that way, but it's my preference by a big margin. If you don't play it's forcing, then A) Your new suit bids need to be alerted and B) you need to have serious discussions about how to play the followups to 2NT). North might try 2 or double or possibly even 2NT--would your partner interpret that as 2-suited? East choosing to voluntarily act should show some extras. South passes and West might still just bid 4 or make the auction more frustrating by bidding 3. East's delayed heart raise will end the auction. Might North try again? The vulnerability is wrong to get aggressive in a sacrificing situation, so it probably is best to stay quiet.

North would love to get a diamond ruff, so might try the A to see if there's a clear path to partner or lead a more pedestrian K. Will West err and attempt to get to dummy in diamonds for a heart finesse? If declarer pays attention to the auction, she should suspect that a finesse is hopeless since she's only missing 13 HCP and North took a red vs white action on the 2-level. It might be a situation where declarer cashes the A and hopes to see the K drop. If declarer does try to go to dummy in diamonds, she'll be held to only 10 tricks.

South opens 2 with her 22 HCP. North bids 2 under most systems, even with only 2 points. Now East makes a lead-directing double. Doubling an artificial bid like a 2 response to 2 tells partner that this is the suit you'd like led. Here, since the final contract could be anything including 3NT, it's nice to help partner find your best suit. Yes, there's a chance that hearts could be better, but it's more likely that those tricks aren't going anywhere. After 2NT and a transfer to spades, should the North hand push to game on a couple of jacks? I like J10xx of clubs in addition to the 5-card spade suit, so I would. South chooses spades instead of notrump and that ends the auction.

Without the lead-directing bid, West would probably lead the J. With that bid, West now leads a low diamond (from length). If West had led a heart instead, East should win trick one and switch to the K. Either way, declarer has to lose a spade, two hearts and a diamond unless the defense errs somewhere (like cashing the AK and allowing declarer to pitch a diamond from dummy). The legitimate line in spades is to lead low to the Q and hope for Kx onside. The illegitimate line is to cross to dummy, and lead the J and hope that East with Kxx doesn't cover. All things considered, if East has the K it's slightly more likely to be Kxx than Kx, but I don't believe this is the right play anyways. On this deal the legitimate line doesn't work, and the other might.

I love silent opponents. On this deal, I don't expect the E-W pair to interfere in the auction, but I suspect the N-S pair might have trouble getting to a good slam anyway. North opens 1 with a nice 18 count. South should make a game forcing 2 call. Now North bids 3 with a mind to look for slam. South probably doesn't like the way the auction has progressed as it's clear the hands don't fit and tries to settle things down with 3NT. When North makes a balanced slam try, South should choose to accept. While I am bullish about bidding notrump games, when choosing slams, I like to be in the ones that make. That's why I'd tell partner about my concealed diamonds with a 6 call. Partner didn't make a pick a slam bid, but often it's right to show a little more of your shape to partner. North could pass but I've shown her correcting back to 6NT.

Against 6NT, West has to choose a lead. At the table, I might still be contemplating it on this auction. Let's say she chooses a passive lead of a spade. Declarer can only count 11 tricks: three spades, one heart, five diamonds, and two clubs. The 12th trick could come from spades or from a club finesse. You should test spades first, since the club finesse can still be attempted later. If you try the club finesse first and it loses, you can't set up a spade without losing the setting trick. On this deal, once the spades are 4-3, the contract is cold. If West somehow found a heart lead (I wouldn't dream of it), then declarer has to rely on the club finesse which also wins. All's well that ends well.

North opens 1 a little bit light, but with excellent shape. 1 also avoids the inevitable rebid problem that occurs if partner responds 1. With the East hand, I can't resist a 1-level overcall with this much shape and white against red. South bids 1NT. West checks her cards to make sure she's playing the same board as everyone else. An opening bid, an overcall, and a 1NT showing values by the responder and West holds a 15-count--Goren is rolling in his grave. West starts with a cuebid. North is happy to retreat from the auction and East bids 2, hoping to convince partner not to jump to 4. South passes and West, of course, jumps to 4 while 3 is possible if you play with very aggressive overcallers. South has 8 points, a partner who opened the bidding, four trump and a fairly easy opening lead so she should double.

The play in 4 is complex. South leads the 4 and if dummy ducks, North might continue a low diamond for lack of a better choice. Now, declarer is in dummy and has nothing clear to do. It might be best to play a spade to the A and a club towards dummy to hope to guess. After a club to the jack, North wins and returns a club or heart and declarer can pitch her heart on the K. Declarer will ultimately lose a club, at least one diamond, and at least one and possibly 2 spades. This contract would have some hope if the E-W pair held the 10.
