Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

There should be a wide range of scores- +110 or 140 for E-W, plus 50 or 100 (3 E-W -1) for N-S or even +110 for N-S if E-W sell out to 3. East deals and opens 1. South can pass or make a light T-O double. West raises to 2. North will bid 3 if South has doubled the first time. Otherwise, he will pass. East passes and now it’s up to South to balance with a double. If he doesn’t, he will garner very few match points. N-S can make 3 if they guess trumps. In order for them to beat 3, they need to arrange for North to ruff a heart. Any plus for E-W should be good.

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

It’s hard to guess the final contract because a lot will depend on whether or not North opens the bidding. With a scattered 11 point hand, most will probably pass. East passes and now it’s up to South to choose his opening bid -- either 1 or 1 NT. If he opts to open 1, he will likely end up in 4 via a Drury auction. If he chooses 1 NT, he will end up in the best contract (as the cards lie) of 3 NT via a Stayman auction. On many days, 4 would be the top scorer but with the minor suit aces both favorably placed, today you want to be in 3 NT.

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

This looks like a routine 4 but some may not get to game. If North passes, East will open 1. South will likely bid a Michaels Cue Bid 2. West should pass and North certainly has more than a 2 bid. If he jumps to 3, South will carry on to 4, for + 650. But what if a feisty North opens 3 --in front of his partner and with a side four card major! East will probably overcall 3. South may raise to 4 but I see no way for N-S to get to 4 now. If South decides to overcall 1, rather than bid Michaels, over a 1 opening, North must do more than raise to 2. A cue bid of 2 is called for in spite of North just having 8 high card points. +650 should be above average for N-S.

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

The auction will likely go P - P - 3. What will East do? He has 2 choices. He will either double or overcall 3 NT. If he doubles, West will probably bid 3. This is the limit of the hand in hearts so they will either be +140 or -100. The more interesting contract is 3 NT. With great guessing by East, the contract can be made. Assuming south leads his partner’s suit, and he has no reason not to, East has to duck the first trick. Winning the A at trick two, he has to play the club suit for 3 tricks. Remember, he cannot let North in. The winning play is to run the hearts and lead a small club from the board. He now covers North’s 8 with the 9. South will win the ten or jack and return a club. When East ducks this in the dummy, North’s king is taken by the ace. Now, East has eight tricks (3 clubs, 1 diamond and 4 hearts). All that remains is to knock out the A. Anyone who bids 3 NT and makes it will deserve the top score they should receive!

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

North-South have to be very aggressive to get to the right contract. West deals and will open either 3 or 4. Over 3, North may overcall 3. If he doesn’t and East raises to f4, this should shut South up. However, when the auction gets back to North, he could possibly introduce his spades. If he does, he should buy the contract and score +650. The same result may occur if it goes 3 - P - P. Now, South may balance with 4 and surely North will bid 4. An interesting problem will occur if west opens 4. Does North dare to come in with 4? On 8 high card points? If he doesn’t, I doubt South will balance with 5. Note that West must lead the K and another diamond to set 5. N-S +650 should be the top N-S score. If E-W steal the pot, they will get a great score.

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

It may be tough for N-S to get their 18 combined points to 4. Whether North opens 1 or 1 -- surely nobody passes this hand nowadays -- East will likely overcall 1 NT. South will raise 1 to 2. If North has opened 1 and East has overcalled 1 NT, South will probably try 2. North will convert this to 2 which should become the final contract. Some Easts might decide they haven’t bid enough and come in with 3. If they get doubled or push their opponents to game, they will regret their indiscretion. Those N-S pairs who are +420 should share the top score.
