 11Pass
2NTAll pass  

The Bidding: With 3-3 in the minors, it is standard to open 1. East has a choice between passing and overcalling 1. A 1 overcall isn't obstructive. So it should be lead directional or show a good hand. Here, a 1 overcall has lead directional value. South has a choice between passing and responding 1. South is light for a Free Bid . Many will pass. Some will respond 1 based on their club holding and the tens supporting their honors. At tables where South passes, West invites game with a natural jump to 2NT. East declines the invitation.

At tables where South freely bids 1 after East overcalls 1, West will be less optimistic about game chances. A 1NT Free Bid seems sufficient. Support Double s are not mandatory for most partnerships. North's diamond Queen seems poorly positioned. In his "The Race to 1NT" article, Andrew Gumperz discusses how a non-vulnerable 1NT contract tends to score well whether it makes or goes down. Making a Support Double to get East-West out of 1NT seems best. South prefers the 4-3 spade fit to raising clubs with 3-card support. Both East and West have 3 spades. Neither is eager to compete over 2.

The Play in 2 by South: West is likely to lead the 4, top of a doubleton, finessing against North's Queen. A club shift looks unattractive. So few, if any, will find the shift to achieve a 2 trick set. East will likely cash their diamonds. Looking at 4 heart and 3 clubs in dummy, West knows to discard a club. West wants a club switch, but cannot afford to discard the 9. So West discards the 3 no matter their signaling agreements. Declarer wants to finesse against West for the King. Declarer has a 2 way finesse for the Jack. Because declarer has few entries, declarer finesses against East for the Jack. Declarer escapes for down 1.

The Play in 2NT by West: Without a spade response by South, North isn't likely to finds the spade lead to beat 2NT. With the Qxx onside, and the KT8 onside, declarer can score 9 tricks if North doesn't lead a spade.

11NTPass31
Pass3NTAll pass 
  1. 1-3-(54) game force

The Bidding: After West opens 1, North overcalls 1NT. The Law of Total Tricks suggests competing to 2 if the strength is roughly evenly divided. Here, North-South could have 25 HCP if West opened a 12 HCP hand. In his "Defending a 1NT Overcall" article, Andrew Gumperz discusses a useful expert agreement to differentiate a weak raise and a constructive raise. East's quacky 3 HCP hand has a whopping 11½ Losing Trick Count . If North-South are playing the traditional version of lebensohl , competing to 2 would force South to guess whether to Game Force or signoff with an invitational hand. Here, West's strength is poorly positioned in front of North. Competing to 2 risks propelling North-South to a game which they might not have reached. Passing seems best.

A 1NT overcall typically has a 15-18 HCP range. So South knows the partnership has 23-26 HCP. South's club length and texture merit an upgrade. Forcing to game seems best. It is common to play systems on after a 1NT overcall. Many expert partnerships use jumps to 3 and 3 as game forcing Splinter bids showing shortness in the bid major, 3-cards in the other major, and 5-4 in the minors. The upside of a 3 Splinter is it brings 3NT, 4, 5, and 5 into play. North,with spades well stopped, prefers the notrump game.

At tables where South prefers an invitational sequence, North is happy to accept.

The Play: East is likely to lead a spade. Declarer has 9 quick winners. With hearts splitting 4-3, 3NT cannot be set.

  1. willing to cooperate with a slam try
  2. 2 key cards and the Queen

The Bidding: After South opens 1, West has nothing to say. North's 2 bid is a Two Over One Game Force . For many partnerships, 2 promises 5+ hearts. With that understanding, South raises to 3. North cue bids their spade control. At this point, both North and South are unlimited. Many expert partnerships use an artificial 3NT bid to differentiate the willingness to cooperate with a slam try from a serious slam try.

South's Losing Trick Count of 6 and 17 Support Points suggest making a serious slam try. South's singleton is less valuable with just 3 trumps. South's texture is poor. South's singleton diamond Ace doesn't carry its full weight because it isn't working in support of other cards. Showing the willingness to cooperate with a slam try seems best. If using an artificial 3NT bid to show willingness to cooperate with a slam try, South bids 3NT. North, with 2 key cards and the Queen, is happy to cooperate by cue bidding their club control. That is all the encouragement South needs. South bids 4NT Roman Keycard . When North shows 2 key cards and the Queen, South places the contract at 6.

The Play: When dummy tables, declarer expects to make 6. The 4-0 heart break gives East 2 heart tricks to beat 6. Declarer's expected top turns into a bottom.

The Bidding: After North opens 1, South's 2 response is a Two Over One Game Force . Continuations vary by partnership agreement. It is space efficient to use a 2 rebid by opener to show 5+ diamonds. South's 2 bid is natural, as is North's 2 bid. South, unaware of the strength of North's diamond strength, prefers North declarer a notrump contract. So South temporizes with 3. North is too strong to offer 3NT as the final contract. So North temporizes with 3. South offers 3NT as the final contract. North's 4 bid is a slam try. South, with diamond shortness and just 1 Key Card for diamonds, bids 4NT to decline the invitation.

The Lead: West isn't eager to lead away from a red Jack. East is marked with spades on this auction. A club lead isn't likely to give up a trick. West will lead a spade if they wish to be aggressive. A club lead is preferable if West prefers to be passive.

The Play: If clubs break 4-2 or better, declarer has 9 winners. Finessing against the Jack offers an 82% chance for 4 diamond tricks and a 31% chance for 5 diamond tricks. Declarer's spade texture allows at least 2 spade tricks to be developed on power. East knows declarer doesn't have 4 spades. So East will not cover a spade honor. Declarer has just a 20% chance for 4 spade tricks. Declarer has just 2 entries to dummy. Since spades offers at least 2 additional tricks, declarer begins by taking the spade finesse. When East ducks and the Queen holds, declarer leads a low spade from dummy, winning the 10. Now declarer has 11 tricks. Declarer can score a 12th trick by knocking out the Ace. On the run of the clubs, West needs to unguard the Jack or Jack. Looking at dummy's diamonds, West chooses to hold on to their diamonds. If the defense hasn't taken their Ace, a declarer confident in their read of the table may risk severing communication with dummy and finesse against the Jack.
