All pass   

Bidding a slam is totally beyond the pale. In 3NT, declarer's plan will be to set up the club suit by playing first the ace and then another, spurning any idea of a finesse for the simple reason that the only entry to the dummy to take a finesse would kill the entry to the once-established club suit. Furthermore, it is not possible to run the suit even with more entries. The T is missing.

So win the opening lead and play A followed by 2 toward the south honors. When the suit splits 3-2, declarer has five club tricks for the piggy bank, and the A for an entry to cash them.

Thus, with the Q located in a friendly spot, eleven tricks will come roaring home.

North's 2 bid prevents NS from finding the heart fit, but South was rather hamstrung anyhow, especially vulnerable against not. Had North refrained from bidding, East would have bid 2 and West's correction to 2 would end the contract. Much better!

A raise to 2 by West would have surely set EW too high, for East would surely have made a game try that would have backfired.

Better for West is to slow the auction so that the three level might be avoided.

Not a hard auction for such a fine hand as South's, provided North understands the value of his hand. Trump support is not needed, just quality honors.

Had East not interjected with a 2 overcall, South might well have jump shifted to 3, after which North would have tried 3NT, but South would bid 4 regardless, needing no help in the heart suit.

The club overcall will assuredly obtain a club lead, but West was likely to lead a singleton in any case. Either way, the club lead assures three club tricks for South, and eleven tricks.

On the other hand, if the club suit is left alone by the defense, South is very likely to try to ruff a club before drawing trumps. Suppose a trump lead -- South wins and plays the AK (OOOPS!), ruffed and another trumps, holding declarer to ONE club trick rather than three.

Boy, oh boy, oh boy, what a disaster!

Well, the game makes, and one might point a finger at South for having too good a hand for a 1NT overcall, but the hand is flat and full of quacks, so 1NT was a reasonable bid. In fact, 4 is rather lucky to make, for it would not be overly surprising for there to be a spade ruff, and the honors are really working well together. Note the synergy of the Q, J, and T. Note the purity and lack of duplication in the diamond suit. Note the harmony of the club honors.

A bit on the lucky side. Hardly anyone will bid the game. Be happy.

Sometimes it is better to open 1 of a major and other times it is better to open 1NT when holding 15-17 HCP and a 5332 pattern. Trying to identify factors favoring one bid over another within that framework is a trying task. Some that favor 1NT are a weak trump suit, minimum HCP, possession of tenaces, and holding three cards in the other major (so that a transfer to that major will not lose a 5-3 fit).

On this hand the reason that 1NT wins is not so much within the context of what North holds, rather the awful hand held by South -- a void in the major suit and just 4 HCP, COUPLED with the fortunate diamond holding, in which one opponent holds Ax, preventing a holdup play.

Today the 1NT opening bid works, but don't close the door on the investigation -- there are also drawbacks.

It pays to compete and it pays to time your competitive noises to prevent partner from getting excited. After West has passed twice, spades seem very safe and East will have no radical ideas.

A difficult hand for commentary, because a reasonable alternative to the one shown is for North to pass the 1NT response, and the final contract could be 1NT. A spade lead from West is rather marked, and then the EW score could be minus 200 on perfect defense. On the other hand, the defense might let declarer off with minus 100, a better score than minus 110 for 2.

All very complicated on a rather blah hand.

South's hand evaluation rises dramatically during the auction precisely when North reverses into 2. Not enough, mind you, to Splinter with 4, but surely enough to answer with a control bid 4 over North's slam-seeking 4 control bid! North, grateful to hear about the diamond control, bids 4NT.

At the point in time that North bids 4NT, 1430 Roman Keycard Blackwood , the question becomes whether South should show his void, and if so, how? YES, he should. How? Well, my personal recipe varies from the "standard," in which you show an even number with a 5NT bid and jump to six in your void to show an odd number.

My personal preference is to deny a void if that is in a natural suit bid by partner and show it if it is in a suit bid by the opponents or known to be shortness by virtue of my own splintering or control bidding. And the method changes, too. Instead of the standard formula, which has the extra burden of showing the suit of the void, my method, with a known void, can employ 1430 specifics: 5NT shows 1 or 4 key cards, 6 shows 0/3, 6 2 without the trump queen, and 6 2 with, the normal hierarchy.

Using my methods, the void must be diamonds (never would I show a club void, and South has bid both spades and hearts), and the number being "0," the second step is taken.

A 19 HCP opposite 4 HCP slam. Not bad.
