The most sensible way to get the right contract is simply to bid it. With major honors, West should eschew diamonds and get to the matchpoint contract.

90 points for making one notrump or 2. The defense is more likely to slip defending 1NT, so that is the contract of choice.

South has nice control cards and a fit, but the 4333 pattern is a bit of a downer. Nevertheless, the hand deserves to be revealed, and 2, cuebidding, seems justified. North could simply sign off in 2, but has full values and another four card major.

South's hand gets better and better. KJxx is good, but not great, for offense. The two heart honors are excellent, and the A is super. Despite only 11 HCP, a clear invitation should be extended.

North, with max spades, trusts partner's judgment and accepts.

Make it, North, as follows: Duck the club lead, win the club continuation, cross to a trump and lead a diamond toward dummy, finessing the jack when East ducks. Back to a spade honor and another diamond, won by the ace. Trump the club continuation and draw the last trump. East is squeezed out of his club. Then the last trump squeezes East in the red suits.

I know that there will be complaints that it is not necessary to bid close games at matchpoints, and that there will be little difference between bidding a spade part score making four on a squeeze and actually bidding 4 and making it.

It just feels better to bid well as a partnership, then to justify the bidding with good play.

So be conservative and play a spade partial if you must.

Just please make ten tricks.

Well, NS have done their best, and it is quite possible that West will not make 3, even though Deep Finesse can make it. One line your commentator looked at required a double dummy endplay to score the part score.

So at least half of the NS pairs who push EW to 3 will score a plus and an acceptable matchpoint score. At the same time, 3 is a reasonable contract that can be defeated with proper defense, but that will probably make when East takes his A too quickly.

Even for those who are not enamored of opening 1NT with five card majors accept 2NT with such holdings, and embrace Puppet Stayman or one of its variants. There is no innate contradiction in the two positions. 2NT as an opening bid lures a response to a much greater degree than does 1NT, which may often become the final contract, burying a perfectly good major suit contract. The 2NT opening, on the other hand, coupled with Puppet Stayman, will much more often than not reveal the correct strain.

When West reveals, first a 20-21 HCP balanced hand, and then a five card spade suit, East's destination is clear, both as to strain and level.

If you play straight down the middle of conventional wisdom, 1 by North shows four or more spades and denies 4-4 majors. Some there are who prefer that 1 promise five, and that with four of either major, not necessarily both, a double is appropriate, since there will be an alternate contract if the one major is not determined to fit partner.

That argument fails, it appears from this corner, when the opponents refuse to remain silent and audaciously make life difficult with a diamond preempt.or just a diamond raise.

At any rate, those issues are not relevant here, for South will simply put an end to the confrontation by bidding game. 4 it is, and all is well.

Support with support. The heart suit is six-long, but flimsy. The spades are three-weak, but there is safety in supporting partners.

Virtue is rewarded.
