Pass?  

North must weigh the two alternatives -- pass or 1? Pass is a borderline decision, requiring above average defense from South to be the correct choice. At the same time, an above-average South hand with good spades and a bit of favorable luck will bring home a game.

But will North be able to bid 4 under any circumstances? Not likely. So passing 1 doubled rates to be the one chance for a good score. The K seems a useful card for defense. Maybe that is the deciding factor. Against that, we are advised first to bid to the level we expect to make our best contract before going for a penalty.

Well, choose!

Sure, South is "supposed to" control bid 4, but really? Pass gets a pass.

Let 'er rip. With a void, tend to bid optimistically. There is magic when the short suit finds no wastage opposite. All systems "go," all honors working together, everything comes up roses.

No one will blame those EW pairs who bid game only. Those who bid slam are rewarded for optimism, aggression, and good judgment, but beware the next time when the cards are not quite so perfect!
