East would like a better collection of interior cards (spot cards), but was not dealt such. Bid anyway! Not vulnerable, passing with such hands is much too passive, despite some risk. South passes due to general weakness, including flat aspect. West passes, but is happy (sort of compelled) to continue to compete when North rebids 3.

By this time everyone has exhausted the potential of the hand. Should South double with a bit more then a trick in hearts? No.

Is there any fine point in the play that would reward study? Yes! Revert to the statement about interior spots. East must take extreme care in the play of the trump suit. If trumps are 3-2, there should be no worries: Two and only two trump losers. However, if there is a singleton honor "out there," then it would be best to avoid losing a spot card (T, to be precise) to it. Thus, when able to begin the task of drawing trumps, East should cross to a spade and lead a LOW heart toward hand. Bingo! Pessimism paid off! When trumps are next led, the T will force the K, or win the trick, and the remaining QJ will push out the king while holding the trump losers to just the inevitable ace and king.

A small but very important point for proper declarer play.

Some flat 8-counts don't deserve invitational status in response to a 15-17 1NT opening. Others do. The factors that elevate this hand are the presence of a four card major, two four card suits, a couple of tens and a very nice sequence of diamond spots in conjunction with the J. It's almost like holding KJJJ!

Well, not quite, but when those diamonds face AQ, you must (must, I say) appreciate the value of the T, at least. It is worth an entire trick with this holding.

And that gives a nice play for game, which just happens to make.

East's twelve includes a nice mixture including honors in partner's opening bid suit, so 3NT with just 12 HCP is justified. Don't put pressure on partner to make a decision unless you have to. Accept some responsibility, while expressing confidence in his declarer play. Meanwhile, provide the opponents with as little information and as much fear as possible.

When West opened the bidding on that balanced mini, all of the hand's power was exhausted by the upgrade for honors working together, but when partner bid 1, holding four honors certainly gave West an incentive to raise (well, any four would do, really, but the enthusiasm level would be less).

South made a nice double, showing competitive values without "promising" four spades, just "adequate support." Three to two honors and an outside singleton fills the bill.

North knows there is a double fit and with five spades feels justified in competing to the three level, perhaps believing the LAW prescribes. True for times when South holds four spades, not today. However, the LAW's dictates are overridden today by the fortunate spade position and the double fits for both sides.

Doubtful if EW could stomach 4, vulnerable, which South must double to lay claim to his rightful ownership of the hand, else EW would get away with theft. A matchpoint double, paying dividends if given the opportunity.

Poor South has no sensible bid. Doubling with just two spades is out, as is overcalling 2 on that horrendous (for a two-level overcall) is out as well. 2NT unusual has multiple flaws: wrong pattern, poor suits, scattered values. There is no inherent penalty for passing hands that fit no describable action!

West will take East seriously and propel to game,

NS will have to play well to defeat 4, but getting a diamond ruff. South should lead a club (conceding heart control by A and another fails to understand the power of that card). the club lead will succeed in one of several ways: If West wins the A, North will encourage, after which South can lead a club to the queen and a spade back ensures the set.

North leads the J, overtaken by the king, and the rather obvious diamond shift defeats the contract by three vulnerable tricks!! Down 300. Who is to blame?

East made a rather light opening bid, but with a good suit, two and a half quick tricks, and wanting a club lead, I don't criticize East for the opening bid.

West has thirteen HCP, a double spade stop, and good club honors, likely solidifying the club suit for a source of tricks.

I don't blame either East or West.

Rather, I decry the unfairness of the Great Shuffler in the Sky, who ought to have provided South with the A for his overcall. Then ten tricks would be assured. Or perhaps South could have been given the JT doubleton, in which case the diamond suit would have blocked!

But no...... Time to punish EW for reasonable bidding. Once in a while it happens. I think good players are much more likely to obtain this result. The meek may inherit the earth and they will assuredly do better on this hand, but I rather want to be in game with the EW cards, thank you.

Shrug and move on.
