Our afternoon starts quietly with EW bidding the heart game. This will be a flat board as there are 11 tricks to be had at notrump but everyone will be playing in hearts.

The same 11 tricks are available however South will lead her singleton club. North will win the first round of trump and give her partner a club ruff holding declarer to 10 tricks.

Pass3PassBID

North has no suitable bid at her first turn. She will however make up for her slow start at her second turn and her side will get too high. They have the values for game however they have no fit outside of diamonds and the distribution of the suits will is such that NS will not be able to produce many tricks.

South has a decision to make. Some will take a chance and bid 3NT. Most days this will be a winning bid however today is not one of those days. South may raise diamonds or she may pass.

The diamond partial is best for NS, Declarer can establish the clubs in two ruffs drawing trump along the way. She will lose one spade and two hearts.

If South elects to bid 3NT, West may lead a low spade. This will give declarer one spade trick. She may then lead a heart toward dummy. If West plays low declarer will win the trick and take her to her winners. She will not make her contract but down one is a victory against the bridge gods.

Ed Antosz Hand Analysis

 PassPass1
Pass2NTAll pass 

West has the best hand at the table but cannot bid at her turn. Her opponents settle into 2NT and she has nothing to safely add to the auction.

East will lead the J and West should unblock the suit for her partner. She should overtake the jack and continue spades. This establishes four tricks for the defense in the suit.

Declarer will eventually win the third round of spades and lead a club, hoping something good will happen in that suit. Unfortunately for her West will win her K and return a heart. East will win her king and cash her remaining spades. East will exit a diamond.

For all the points NS hold they will only take six tricks.

West may lead a trump. Nothing else will change the outcome. Leading away from kings is often dangerous.

As soon as South gains the lead she should lead her singleton club toward dummy, playing the J if West plays low. This will make a winner of the K and South can discard a losing spade on that card.

Declarer can draw trump. She will lose a diamond eventually however she can trump her fourth round of diamonds in dummy.

  1. Do you have a stopper?
  2. Do you have a half stopper?

West opens which makes it much more difficult for NS to find their notrump game. Many will miss it as neither has a spade stopper.

South will get her side into the action by starting with a double. North will dutifully show her diamonds. South, with great diamond support will ask for a spade stopper. North will deny that holding, So South will ask again, This time she wants to know if North holds a half stopper.

If North decided that 10xx is a half stopper she will bid the notrump game which will make an overtrick.

East will lead her partner's suit. When declarer gains the lead she will cash out winning one spade and six diamonds. She will take her two clubs and when the Q drops she will have an additional trick in the J.

EW will have a reasonable auction to get to the notrump game. At matchpoints you need a note from your mother to play in five of a minor rather than 3NT. Everyone knows that the notrump game usually scores better.

Not today!!

South will lead the K. The defense will take the first five heart tricks. South will signal for a club switch but North will not lead partner's suit. South will nonetheless win her A at the last trick.

EW will have some solace in that every other pair sitting in their direction will also be down two.

West would love to open a Weak Two however at this vulnerability it could be a disaster for her side. South will open and North will pass at her second turn when South shows a minimum hand with two red suits.

West may lead a spade. East will of course win her ace dropping South's queen.

Declarer has several lines to nine tricks. She can win the second trick and cash her top hearts to ruff a heart. She can some to hand with a club to cash a second top club bad now ruff a spade.

At this point she has six tricks. If she advances a heart, East will ruff however each time East ruffs South will have another diamond trick. East considers taking the A and continuing diamonds however this will give South three diamond tricks.

A more efficient line is to win the lead and for South to play three rounds of hearts, ruffing the third. Then she comes to hand with a club to advance the J. East will win three diamonds but South will score her diamonds individually. If East plays the A and continues the suit South will still score two clubs and three diamonds.

Pass2All pass 

North has a decision at her second turn to bid/. Should she rebid her clubs or should she try 1NT? We think most will opt for 2 on this board for several reasons. North has no heart stopper and Shouth bid spades rather than hearts. (It's possible South has shorter hearts but North has nothing in the suit.) North has a sixth club which is worth mentioning.

With her 10 HCPs South sees no future in the board and will pass the club rebid.

East will lead a heart, the unbid major. The defense will win two heart tricks but North will ruff the third round. She will draw trump then attack spades. She'll cash the ace and lead a second spade toward dummy. This establishes the spade suit for diamond discards.

East must do some counting. She knows that North has six club tricks. She know the soade suit will provide four tricks for declarer. So when she wins her K she should cash her A to hold declarer to nine tricks.

Pass3NTAll pass 

North bid the reasonable notrump game after her partner opens. North has no major suit to mention, She could try bid clubs however her suit has no strength to it. Besides, the game is matchpoints and notrump usually scores better then playing in five of a minor.

The crux of the board is the play of the club suit, regardless whether the final contract is 3NT or the unlikely 6.

Against 3NT East will lead a spade. West will take her ace and switch to a heart. The defense will have found declarer's weakness. They are poised to take four heart tricks.

North will try the heart finesse however East will continue the suit. Declarer will eventually win a heart and she will lead a club toward dummy. East will play low and declarer will most likely make the reasonable play of trying the club finesse.

West will win her singleton K and cash her heart winners.

If North is in the club slam, East will lead a spade which West will win to switch to a heart. In this case North will rise with the A to play clubs. (She will be able to discard her losing heart on diamonds if she gets the clubs right.) We again expect declarer to take the losing finesse.

Of course, if declarer drops the K offside she will make her contract. She will have two spades, one heart, three diamonds and six clubs.)
