South has a powerful hand, justifying first a takeout double and then further competition to the three level. While the initial double suggests support for all three suits outside opener's diamonds, the further bid of 3 points to an unbalanced hand with a long heart suit and upwards of 18 HCP. Not a perfect description, but adequate here. Thankfully (for South), North has heart support and the major suit scores better at matchpoints.

In order to hold declarer to just nine tricks, EW must negotiate a club ruff OR a very pretty attack on declarer's trump holding through repeated, incessant diamond leads: force declarer to ruff the second diamond winner, then when declarer draws trumps by playing A and a heart to the jack (even a double dummy duck would not help) losing perforce to East's K, another diamond capsizes declarer's boat: If the third diamond is not ruffed or ruffed low, West can win a trump directly. If Declarer ruffs high, then declarer, dummy, and West all have just one trump left -- drawing that trump will lose complete control of the hand, so that when East wins the A, two more diamonds can be cashed. Not good for declarer!

So South should accept gracefully the loss of a second trump, meanwhile going about the business of setting up clubs. That is, ruff the third diamond low, allowing the overruff, and then set up clubs to score nine tricks.

East seems justified in opening the bidding 1 -- by today's standards. A six card major, two quick tricks, and a seven loser hand make up for the sparse eleven HCP. Or so it would seem.

No one could possibly criticize West for bidding to 6NT after checking on aces. And yet slam is a poor prospect, needing to find the heart queen. The normal play, cashing the K and then finessing the J, offers about a 34% chance (hearts 3-2 with the queen onside doubleton or third). That is below the accepted standard mathematical minimum.

What gives? Well, it is the standard for opening bids that is to blame. Perhaps East should have opened a weak two bid, instead. It qualifies as a maximum for point count, but it still feels a bit strong with two honors outside the trump suit.

If the finesse had won, three would be no gnashing of teeth. But when the finesse loses. . .

No one will double a 4 bid reached in this fashion, so NS will beat the theoretical par of minus 100. Thus the leap to 4 by South is justified fully in theory, and almost surely in practice. After East's Negative Double , West would surely compete to 4, and a subsequent 4 bid might be doubled, after all.

But some care must be take to ASSURE that North takes only nine tricks: if West leads three rounds of hearts without first cashing the A, the game can be made on a double-dummy basis, but discarding a losing diamond on the third heart while East takes his en passant promoted spade honor.

Cashing the A is easy enough, but some might be careless.

West's fourth round heart stopper along with ten other HCPs, but the result shouldn't be favorable. The good news is that down one in 3NT will be the same score as down one in 3. Really, the horrid club break is quite unlucky!

However, 3 does have a small chance of success if East leads the A or rises with the ace when East leads low toward the king. The A must be preserved to capture an honor, lest a heart loser be pitched on the K.

3 is likely to make a few times, for a good score. 3NT does not seem to stand a chance against calm defense.

West might be inclined to make a 5 call with the spade singleton and the long club suit, but the lack of heart length might deter believers in the LAW of Total Tricks . It is a closer decision than that if you consider the theories of the anti-LAW folks ("I Fought the LAW of Total Tricks," by Mike Lawrence and Anders Wirgen, 2004), who place more emphasis on singletons and voids, along with more of a visualization of the tricks perspective during the bidding. Too much to explain here, but the truly serious student will want to use the present hand to consider the methods espoused by Lawrence and Wirgen.

Spades rule, but EW will be rewarded for competing. The truth about the hand lies more in the club fit than either competing theory.

  1. Splinter , promising four trumps, short clubs, extra values.
  2. Minorwood
  3. Zero or three key cards and a void.
  4. In case a major suit queen is accidentally missing, 7 in the 4-4 fit will almost always produce the necessary extra trick produce an extra trick.

Jumping to 3NT with flat hands and minimum to medium range opening count has advocates, but here the auction 1 - 3NT crowds the bidding so much that exploratory slam bidding is destroyed for EW. East would simply have to stab at a final contract. Switch the West hand's minors and the bidding would be the same, but the result a trick worse.

Instead, a slower approach by West might yield a much more revealing auction, as in the diagram. A 2/1 2 bid allows East to Splinter, West to key card, and East to show three aces and a void with specialized responses. Now West can visualize not only the pattern and top honors, but also the major suit queens, necessary for the values to support the 4 leap.

The difference between the possible 3NT leap and the 4 leap is that the Splinter provides a narrower definition of pattern and values than the shotgun-style 3NT, where the values could be located anywhere.

The void-showing 5 bid is a specialized response structure, not a standard treatment. It is revealed to show what is possible with close partnership agreements.

Bid the safest grand slam. Although a grand is makeable in three suits, the virtues of the 4-4 fit are well known. Bidding any makeable grand slam is usually sufficient for an excellent score at any form of bridge.
