Lynn Berg Hand Analysis

South may have only 10 HCP, but the hand is certainly worth opening 1. West will overcall spades for the same reason--and both partners will raise. West won't stop shy of the spade game, I hope. Will South now introduce 5, being willing to play 5 if North "corrects?" Not that he will this time--North will be delighted to play diamonds. With three quick tricks, West will double.

After two passes South will be glad to open this hand in third seat. He may consider a lead-directing 1 bid, but 1 will likely be the choice. West has to decide whether to make a Michaels Bid promising spades and a minor or bid spades. With a 6-5-1-1 hand he isn't worried about an auction ending after a 1 overcall, but a 2 Michaels Bid might save him a headache later (Imagine 1-1-4-P- P He'd be unhappy about not showing the clubs earlier). North should raise partner`s hearts either by a simple raise or by cue-bidding to show a limit raise. That Q took a hit in value when the opponents have spades. We show East passing but he might bid 3, and since South likes his shape, he may consider bidding game. However the action has gone to this point, West will be in there again bidding spades at whatever level is cheapest to show extra distribution. If 3 comes to East, he, should raise to 4, having good trump support and some useful looking stuff in the minors (either a double fit or the Qx in support). It's easiest to reach 4 if your opponents force you there. The play in spades is uneventful- there are no 8 ever 9 never considerations since you are missing both the Q and J of the two 9 card fits.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis

South opens 1. When North replies 2, will South rebid the spades or introduce his diamond suit? Either way, all roads should lead to the spade game, losing just the two minor suit Aces. If West leads the A, East plays the 3 hoping to induce a shift to diamonds, though that winner will never "go away."

South opens 1 in second seat with a strong 12 count. Very aggressive Wests might bid 3, tempted by the vulnerability and partner`s 1st seat pass, but that would be a stretch. North bids 2 game forcing to start. South rebids 2. Many players use a repeat of opener`s suit as a generic bid which does not always show a six card suit- make sure you discuss this with partner. North should temporize/stall with a 2NT bid. Now South shows his diamonds with 3. North bids 3, promising two of them. South might try control-bidding 4 to show slam interest. North will either control bid 4 or use Blackwood. If they find themselves off two keycards, the North-South hands shouldn`t get too high. The play will have declarer drawing trump and conceding the two aces. Declarer might try to sneak a club through, but alert Wests should know from the auction to grab the ace.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis

After North opens 1, will East want to bid 2? Then will South dare to bid 2? A Negative Double would be safer. North should be delighted with what he hears and jump to 3, all South needs to carry on to the heart game. If North is declarer, East will have to lead. A low club would lead to three clubs for declarer: winning the 10 on the first trick and then finessing East for the K and creating a pitch for a losing spade. Still, a low spade lead will still only net three defensive tricks.

North will open 1 in 3rd seat and South will bid 1. North rebids 2. South now has a choice whether to make a game try or not. The fifth heart should be the determining factor- a known nine-card fit is worth extra. Whatever game try South chooses (2, 2NT or 3) North will accept with his maximum. On the J lead, South will win in hand and take a heart finesse. After that loses, declarer wins a spade return, draws trump, plays a club and crosses his fingers. If East returns something other than a spade, declarer will win, draw trump and play another diamond to the A. When the Q shows up declarer can lead the 9 and pitch a losing spade while losing to the 10. Next declarer will win the return and win established 8, pitching the last losing spade for an overtrick. This only works if the lead was the J (possibly a poor choice).

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis

Surely East will open 1 in third seat. I think South would do well to bid not 1 but 2 opposite a passed partner. Not that the jump will deter West this time--he'll freely bid 3. Will anyone continue higher? The vulnerability should be a deterrent. The position of the club honors is deadly for E-W, especially if North has the chops to play second hand low.

West has nice shape and values in the long suits where they belong, but still falls short of an opener in all but the most optimistic of systems. East will have no such qualms in third seat opening 1. South should bid 2. Facing a passed hand, it's better to try to get in the opponents' way rather than bidding 1. West bids 2- as a passed hand, he isn't concerned about over-promising. Everyone`s hand has now improved. North bids 3. East raises to 3. West probably shrugs and bids 4. The play could go a number of ways after the first two tricks of a heart and heart ruff. The bad spade split likely dooms this contract, however.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis

After 1--1--1, East rebids 1NT. Now West has to decide what to do: 3is a likely choice and should encourage East to try 3NT. Even the K cooperates, as do the high club honors. 3NT should cash several overtricks. The biggest challenge for East is getting to his hand to take the diamond finesse. Second hand low by North in spades will do it--or an opening low club lead from South.

North should not a open 2 at this vulnerability. With values outside of the long suit (the A), this hand is inviting trouble. I would probably bid 2 if I were non-vul since the “texture” of the suit is good- holding the 987. South might try opening in third seat- the style these days is to be very aggressive, but a 1 bid doesn`t do much to bother the opponents. West opens 1, North continues to keep his nose out of it. And the auction continues 1 Pass 1 Pass 1NT. Now West`s call will likely determine the final spot. If he chooses 3, E-W will find 3NT. 2 will likely end the auction. West might even try a “prolonging the pain” 2 bid or a matchpoint-oriented 2NT call. With a nice 6-4 hand and 15 HCP, 2 would be a bit wimpy. With the K of diamonds and KQ of clubs onside, notrump will take a lot of tricks.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis

Will East ignore the singleton King and open 3? If he does, this will pass around to North who has a nasty choice to make: double with only three spades? Balance in a terribly weak red suit? Pass and maybe miss a game? It's no fun, sometimes. 4 founders on the missing high honors and 4-1 split, costly when the long hand has to ruff clubs. 5 is just too high with three heart losers. If North does double, South may try 3NT with her club stopper, and will be rewarded when the Q is on side. Scary, though.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis

North opens 1. How many hearts will West bid opposite a passed partner? With two outside cards, maybe just 1. South bids 1NT buying the hand unless East is tempted to bid again. Then South bid NT again, and North might even go on to game--all avoidable if East goes quietly.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis

The auction starts 1--1--1. Now East has to decide on a rebid: 1NT? 2? He's never passing 1, especially not with nine HCP. A 2 rebid is a real warning to West not to bid on. East has a little chance in NT since West has only one Spade. He has to take the finesse, get back to his hand and lead the A and another diamond, and then get back to his hand yet again. Wow--pretty unlikely. The bad club break with that all important 9 is a problem, too. 2 is a lot easier, since ruffing the third lead of spades is an entry to lead trump again.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis

North opens 1NT. South has just enough to raise, which North will carry on to game with his 17 HCP. And then the usual low heart lead will lead to five defensive tricks. North's only hope, and it's a slim one, is that a smooth play of the 4 will get West to play the Ace. West can use the Rule of 11 , though and know that North has no heart as high as the six.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis

East opens 1, West replying 1. Now North doubles, showing the two black suits. Will East rebid diamonds, use a Support Double(s) , or raise hearts--all are possibilities. When West repeats her hearts, East can revalue her hand and raise--game on this one is a question of distribution at least as much as of HCP. The trump spots really matter, too. It's easier to plan to set up the West hand. Play three rounds of diamonds, ruffing the third round and lose only the A and the A. Ruff the two spade losers on the dummy.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis

South opens 1 with high hopes, but the auction leave him behind. West overcalls 2 and poor North can't even raise with five trumps, having only one HCP. East can tolerate diamonds and may offer up that spade suit: does he have a way to show it's long but weak? Not everyone will. This hand takes 10 tricks easily, but getting there will be almost impossible.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis

West opens 1. Depending on their agreement, East will either raise or bid 1NT (I like the latter). South has the shape to double now, but hardly enough points if you discount the singleton diamond. Maybe it's time to leave well enough alone--not a popular stance for bridge players!

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis

East opens 1 and South overcalls 1, which passes back to East. Will he reopen? South will just bid 2--and the "boss" suit will probably stop a club bid from West with only six HCP and vulnerable. Playing East for the J will help declarer's cause--that 10 is valuable if East has the J.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis

Unless West opens a light 1 (reasonable with this good suit), North will get to open 1. There's not much he can do over 1, though. East bids 1NT over 1 and West might just cross his fingers and pass--which would work fine this time, since the club honors cooperate (that is, North doesn't have KQx. Even the spade honors play nice.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis

South opens 1 and West overcalls 1. Now East has to know how to handle her hand. Would 2 show a good hand and a six card suit? There's no point in preempting after partner's overcall. If Easy bids 1, South repeats her diamonds, and now West may raise spades. With so many losers in the minors, E-W will not try for game.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis

North opens 1. What South bids will depend on their agreement, but a Forcing 1NT will be common. Then when North bids 2, South can bid 3 to show her six card suit and invitational hand. Even if 1NT were not forcing, North shouldn't pass with a second four card suit. They won't get to game, but the hand plays friendly when the QJ are doubleton.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis

East opens 1. West bids 1 (higher of two five card suits first) and then jumps in hearts the next round. Some will end up in 3NT, given East's two doubletons, but the majors cooperate to allow lots of tricks in a major suit.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis

East opens 1NT and South may bid 2NT with her long minors. Now, will West come in at 3 with only five HCP? He know that they have at least nine of them (Actually 11 this time). North will choose diamonds enthusiastically. Where this ends up will depend to a great extent on whether or not West bids.
