Although 5 by E/W needs only a 2-2 break or a singleton honor in the South hand and some more luck in s, it's hard to see how E/W can even sniff at game. East has a normal 1 opening and South is close to doubling. With a fourth instead of a fourth , it would look pretty normal, but it's always dangerous to double with both limited HCP and imperfect distribution. I expect that most experts would choose the aggressive double here, but even if they don't, North should reopen with a double if West passes. Should West pass if South passes? It's a close call. The backup support is useful if East doesn't have a fit, but it also feels wrong to bid a four card suit headed by the 6!!! with only 5 HCP. E/W have their best chance to keep E/W completely out of the bidding if West bids 1 and then corrects 2 back to 2. East might bid again, but even that won't convince West to think about game. If N/S do get into the bidding, as long as East bids again to show a good hand, West should compete and it's hard to see how N/S can end up outbidding E/W. A contract will lose four minor suit tricks, a ruff and two tricks, so it will actually be a bit of a disaster if N/S compete to 3 and get doubled.

  1. Weak

E/W might be able to keep N/S from bidding 4 on this hand by bidding aggressively in s. The vulnerability for N/S is terrible, and even looking at both the North and South hands, you would not want to be in game, as 4 needs the suit to come in for no losers. In fact, it won't even be clear to many declarers what the percentage play is in the suit, if they happen to be allowed to declare 4s. Many years ago, it was considered standard to open 1 when holding 5-5 in the black suits. There are still pairs who might choose to do so on this hand, but the general consensus is to open with 1. Assuming East opens 1, South is good enough to double, although the hand would be much better if the honors were located somewhere else. East has a maximum weak raise, particularly at this vulnerability, and in fact, some might upgrade it a little and call it a "Mixed" raise (a raise with four card trump support and usually 7-9 HCP). Many experts would use a 3 bid on this auction to show a Mixed Raise, but is West strong enough for it? Typically a Mixed Raise has a little defense and is a hand that evaluates to nearly a limit raise when including distribution. I just can't see it on this hand, and would make a preemptive raise even given the favorable vulnerability. If I only had a Mixed Raise available and not a weak raise, then I would choose that, albeit reluctantly. If West does bid 3, then E/W are in a bit of a quandary, given the vulnerability. It's both dangerous to bid, but also temping, since it's likely that the opponents are trying to steal.

If North does decide to bid, they can double 3 if this is a Responsive Double . A Responsive Double usually focuses on the minors when the opponents bidding is in a major suit, but here, with North's second suit in s, it isn't that dangerous. (If North's second suit were instead, then North will be on a guess if South bids 4s. Here, if South bids 4, North can bid 4s showing the red suits and if South bids 4s, North can bid 4, being reasonably confident that if South doesn't have s, that they will surely have a four card suit.) However, on the actual hand, North has only 7 HCP and dreadful low doubleton , and East is still an unlimited hand, so bidding is fraught with danger.

As already mentioned, 4 happens to make on a good lie of the cards, but will be difficult for declarer to play correctly. Once the bad trump break comes to light, declarer needs West to have four s in order to be able to pitch a loser from the South hand and then ruff a , and given that, the percent play is to finesse West for both the Q and 10, rather than guess to play East for a doubleton Queen or doubleton 10. It would be hard for declarer to get the hand right, but the defense is likely to start with high s, which will either set up a for declarer, or force West to reduce their trump length. This will allow declarer to make the more normal play in s of finessing for the Queen only, as Qxx in the West hand will be sufficient to make. In a contract, declarer appears to have four top losers, but the defense has to be careful. South might well lead a and now when South wins the Ace, the defense must cash their three red tricks. This won't be as easy as it sounds, since North will be encouraging both red suits, rather than giving count. If N/S try to cash two s, or three s, declarer will pitch all of the losers in the other suit on the s and will make at least 10, or possibly 11 tricks.

  1. Transfer

Most roads lead to 4 on this hand, no matter what the E/W opening NT range is. I confess that I would be tempted to open the South hand, with a rebiddable six card suit and secondary support for both majors, but most will pass. IF South does open, West should double, and East can drive to the game. Whoever declares 4, N/S will need to get their ruff to maximize their score on defense and to do this, they will need to find an opening lead in s. On any other lead, declarer will no problems making 10 tricks and has play for 11. If West is the declarer and North leads a , the defense must be careful. If South wins the first trump lead, they won't know which suit to lead to get to North's hand for a ruff, and might will switch to a . This will be a disaster, as declarer will win, draw trump, pitch two losers and make 11 tricks. Better for South is to duck the first , win the second and give North a chance to signal which suit to lead. If East is declarer in a 4 contract, the defense is a little easier, as the AK makes it clear which suit South needs to lead to get a ruff. Note that if South is on lead and leads a , declarer must be careful to win the with the Ace and not with one of dummy's honors. The danger with winning with the Ace is that the South has a singleton and North has the Ace. If declarer wins with the King, South can win the trump Ace, lead a to the Ace, ruff declarer's Ace, and declarer still must lose a and will end up going down. If instead, East wins the Ace, then when North leads a for South to ruff, South will not be ruffing a winner and there will still be two s in dummy for South to pitch away their losers. The general principle is that when you think a suit might be getting ruffed later, try to win tricks with the honors in the hand sitting behind (playing before) the hand that you think is going to be ruffing.

Thanks to the nice distribution of the opponents suits, 6 can make by ruffing two s in the South hand, or ruffing one and then playing for a double squeeze, but N/S are sure to end up in the much more practical contract of 3NT. Assuming the bidding is as shown, East won't have an easy lead and might choose a , a or a . No matter what East leads, declarer has basically 10 tricks on top assuming that East is finessed for the Queen. On anything but a lead, declarer can easily set up an 11th trick in s against the loss of just one trick in each black suit. At first it looks like a lead will hold declarer to 10 tricks, but by ducking one and giving up the Ace, declarer can set themselves up for the same double squeeze that lets them make 6, and still end up with 11 tricks. So, +660 looks pretty normal to me, though it should still be above average, as 12 tricks are basically impossible and some will misplay on a lead, or might guess s wrong on a lead.

  3. Guarantees a fit

Given that 6 can make if East declares it, it's a little surprising that even 4 may be in some danger on this hand, particularly if North gets off to a lead. Before even getting to 4, however, E/W will have some bidding challenges. The biggest challenge to E/W might be that South will choose to upgrade their hand and open 1NT. If they do, West won't really have a bid, but East might compete with their two suiter, and West can drive to game. Of course, if South ends up declaring 1NT, this won't work out so well for them. If West leads a , declarer should end up with three tricks for -400, which will be better than E/W bidding game. However, if West leads a or a , careful defense will result in 12!!! tricks for the defense, and N/S will be -600 for an awful score.

At most tables, South will open 1, and West will probably bid 1NT, despite the anemic distribution. East can transfer to s to start with. If South hadn't opened the bidding, then East might just bid 3NT after the transfer, seeing little future in s at matchpoints. Similarly, if East's s and s were switched, 3NT would look good, with help for the stopper. But here, with a singleton , East should show their suit, if only to insure that West chooses s with a fit. For most pairs, East will just bid 3 to show s, but in the bidding diagram, I have shown an agreement that is increasing in popularity among experts. This agreement is known as "transfers over transfers" and allows responder to transfer to a second suit after their first transfer. I won't go into all of the details here, but will only mention that there are some significant bidding advantages. Either way, West should show their fit after East shows s, and the 4 game should be bid.

South's opening bid will help declarer immensely in the play, as declarer will know to play South for most of the HCP. Let's say North leads a . Declarer will want to lead trump from the East hand as South is marked with the A and might have a singleton. Declarer also doesn't want to ruff a , as this exposes declarer to being forced out of trump, allowing South to safely lead s when in with the Ace. One reasonable approach is to play a to the King, eschewing the Jack finesse to lead a to the Queen. When North has the Jack and the Queen falls doubleton, South becomes exposed to a double squeeze even if they don't exit with the Queen, and 12 tricks will come home for declarer. I expect most players to not find this play and to lose a trick to the Queen and possibly to the Jack as well. On a lead, declarer might even go down. +450 should be above average and +480 will be a near top, but will be surpassed by the rare pair who are +600 defending 1NT.
