Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

North's hand is just too good for anything but 1. East might ignore all those "quacks" and bid 3, but I have no argument with 2. South will pass. With an Ace, a King and a useful singleton, West can bid 2--this should imply tolerance for diamonds. North may well now bid 2. Now it's up to East: will the doubleton heart be enough to raise hearts? The answer lies in how careful and explicit their partnership agreements are.

 12Pass
223Pass
Pass3All pass 

Lynn Berg typically provides analysis for 299ers on boards 1-18. Additionally, analysis for more advanced players is available for boards 1, 3, and 7.

The Bidding: After North opens 1, East overcalls 2. South, lacking the strength to show the club suit, must pass. West isn't strong enough to advance to 2 if a new suit is forcing as Larry Cohen suggests in his "Simple Overcalls" article. If a new suit is non-forcing as David Lindop suggests in his "What's Standard? Advancing (Responding to) a Simple Overcall" article, West has the length and texture to offer a higher scoring heart contract. Either way North competes to 2. East will at least compete to 3. If West bid 2, East additionally has the option of competing in hearts. Given the vulnerability, North may take the push to 3. Some East-West pairs will take the push to the 4-level.

The Play in Diamonds: The defense needs to knockout dummy's club entry and needs to draw trump to prevent a spade ruff. The defense doesn't have the time to do both. Declarer will have no trouble scoring 10 tricks.

The Play in Hearts: To hold declarer to 10 tricks, the defense must lead or switch to diamonds early to sever communication with dummy.

The Play in Spades: Declarer cannot avoid losing 5 tricks. Typically, the defense will score 1 + 1 + 2 + 1.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

East might open 1 on the Rule of 20 , rebidding 1NT over West's 1 response. West will happily bid 3NT. Without a black suit lead, 3NT will probably make. Given the bidding, South might decide to make an unusual lead--and then it will be a struggle.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

West opens 1 and East responds 1. Now West has a bit of a rebid problem: 3 is not forcing and somewhat undervalues the hand, while 2NT might imply a better spade stopper. Sometimes the bridge question is, what lie will you choose to tell? Over 2NT, East can bid 3, fine out about the heart fit, and go for slam. Is it safe to bid the grand? Not really. since the club finesse has to work and you have to avoid a heart loser.

The Bidding: West's 18 HCP suggest opening 1 and then jumping to 2NT. West's playing strength may motivate some to upgrade to a 2NT opener. At tables where West opens 1, East responds 1. West jumps to 2NT as planned to show an 18-19 HCP balanced hand. Continuations vary by partnership agreement. New Minor Forcing is the most common agreement. Wolff Sign Off and transfers are better because they allow the partnership to stop at a 3-level partial and have more choice of game and slam invitational sequences. Transfers are recommended because they are better and easier. East uses the partnership's method to look for a heart fit, a club fit, and invite slam.

When West shows a heart fit, East uses Roman Keycard to learn they have all the key cards and the trump Queen. East's 5NT bid confirms all the key cards. The modern agreement is that 5NT asks for Specific Kings . West's 5 bid shows the King and denies the King. East offers 6 as the final contract. West prefers 6NT hoping to score an extra 10 points. 6NT protects their Queen, eliminates the risk of a defensive ruff, and mitigates the risk of a bad trump break.

The Play in 6NT: Declarer has 11 quick winners. The club finesse provides declarer's 12th trick. A spade lead gives declarer their 13th trick. On a passive lead, declarer can try a Squeeze for their 13th trick. Since South discards after East, a Squeeze will not be successful. A declarer who see through the backs of the cards would double finesse hearts and pickup South's J942.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

West opens 1 and East responds 1. Now West rebids 2 and may well buy the hand. Why would East think of anything with only six HCP? North might make the friendly lead of a small spade--he's unlikely to lead that doubleton heart. That will mean at most five losers for 2.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

North opens 1NT. South will transfer and then bid 2NT, but may carry on to game when North shows a fit. And this time it will be right when hearts break and the J is in the doubleton. Still, I wouldn't fault anyone who let it go at 3.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

South opens 1. What will North reply? Even playing Inverted Minors , his hand is too balanced and the diamonds too short for 2. 2 is the best alternative, and the NT game the most likely. This will be tough to play with the usual major suit lead. Hold up on the hearts, though, for the best chance. Then give up one club trick for three clubs, four diamonds, and the two major suit aces. I'm willing to bet -1 won't be uncommon.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

West opens 1NT. North might make a double (equal value). In that case, East can redouble, asking partner specifically to bid 2, which he'd then correct to 2. If North bids 2, E-W will defend, especially on this vulnerability.

David Loeb Hand Analysis

1NT21Pass22

  1. + a major
  2. pick your major

The Bidding: As Larry Cohen discusses in his "Should I Open 1NT w/ a 5-card Major?" article, it is common to open 1NT with a 5-card major to avoid rebid problems. Defenses to 1NT vary by partnership agreement. If playing Cappelletti , North has the option of a penalty double. With just 15 HCP and poor texture, a penalty double is risky. If North doubles for penalty, East uses the partnership's method to run to 2. If North overcalls 2 showing spades and a minor, East may use Lebensohl to compete to 3. North can reasonably venture a penalty double.

Playing DONT or Meckwell , North overcalls 2 showing diamonds and a major. South's advance to 2 is pass or correct. North's 2 bid ends the auction.

The Play in 2: East knows dummy has at most 1 diamond. So East leads a trump to reduce ruffing power. With spades breaking 3-3, declarer can score 8 tricks if they get the hearts right. Declarer must avoid being careless in the spade suit. If East gains the lead with the 5, East-West can score their trump honors separately to beat 2.

The Play in 3: The defense has 4 quick winners and will score a heart trick to set 3.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

West opens 1. East bids 1 and then gets his side to 2 over West's 1NT rebid (not 2 on this balanced hand). Some lucky declarers will make an overtrick, but eight tricks will be the more common result--repeated diamond finesses are the percentage play.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

East opens 1NT. West will transfer, and East will enthusiastically prefer hearts to NT with this spade holding. The usual lead from South surely will be the Q-- top of an "almost perfect" sequence. This time banging down the AK pays off.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

East may use Rule of 20 and open 1--or she might pass. Either way, West will want to play 4--great suit and protecting those minor suit kings seems sane. This time it won't matter--East has the Q and South the Ace--but neither has to be true.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

South opens 1--the Rule of 20 once again. North just bids 1 for the moment. When South rebids 2, North needs to force the bidding--perhaps with the artificial and game forcing 3. All poor South can do is complete the picture of her hand and then watchin awe if North goes slamming with her plethora of prime cards. 3NT only ekes out 10 tricks with, luckily, a spade lead.

West opens 1NT. Unless they are playing Puppet, East just goes to the NT game. A heart lead is friendly, both finesses work; the only dark spot is the 4-2 club break.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

An undisciplined North might open 2, but more will pass for now--all the way around to West who might open 2 showing in the pass-out seat an opening hand and a decent six card suit. East will surely forge to the heart game but there are only nine winners and the mirror-ish distribution won't help/

West opens 1NT. If North has a way of showing a two suited hand, he'll use it. South should revalue her hand and blast to the spade game: her singleton heart is the key. And an overtrick is on when the Q is onside.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

If South does open 1, North will think slam immediately. If he passes, North will open 1 and jump to 4 over South's response. Either way, South should love her hand and start cuebidding. I'd avoid Blackwood with not second round control in hearts.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

North opens 1 and East bids 1. South may try a Negative Double , but if she passes, North will reopen with a double. On similar auctions, more may get to 4 than to 3NT, but both work. The Q even drops.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

East opens 1 and reverses into 2 over the 1 response. What will West do now? He might bid 2NT with a little something in hearts, but is more likely to take a preference for clubs. It makes a pile of tricks when clubs are 2-2 and the K is onside. South shouldn't lead a doubleton--better choices are a low heart or a low spade.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

South opens 1NT. North will transfer and bid the heart game--way safer than NT with no club stopper in either hand. The second spade in the North hand should "go away" on the long diamonds.
