Ed Antosz Hand Analysis

 12♣Pass
2Pass3♣All pass

We can see several different final contracts on this board however we think that 3♣ will be the most popular.

East has an easy overcall. South however has something to consider. She only has five HCPs however she has four hearts and support for her partner's opening. A double doesn't seem right as North would expect her to have four spades as well as hearts. A raise to 2 might be right. After some consideration we think South should downgrade her hand since her ♣Q may not be worth very much. In the end South will pass.

South will lead the 9. The defense will win the four obvious tricks. They have one spade, one heart, one diamond and one club.

There is nothing declarer can do to create another trick. There is nothing the defense should give away.

North will show her spade support and singleton diamond in one bid. South knows she has no wasted values in diamonds however her hand has no other features. She doesn't have a second suit. She has no shortness of her own. She will settle for the spade game.

The outcome of the board depends upon declarer finding the ♠Q. With nine spades and no clues from the defense about distribution the correct play to to bang down the ♠A and follow with the ♠K. The ♠Q will fall doubleton.

Declarer's only loser will be the A.

North will get to the notrump game only to struggle to make her contract.

East will lead a heart. Declarer has one spade and four hearts with no future to make more tricks in either suit. This game is about counting and if we count tricks we know North must make four tricks in the minor suits to make her contract.

She has two diamonds with little future of making more tricks in that suit. If she can't make a third diamond trick she must manufacture two club tricks. The only way to guarantee two tricks is for either the defense to break the suit or for East to hold the ♣J.

Eventually North will have to attack clubs herself. She will lead a club toward dummy and finesse the ♣10 when East plays low.

Bingo!! She has her second club trick and her game going ninth trick.

East is not a happy camper on this board. West will have preempted the board. East has some values however they not be enough to bid the game. When partner preempts one usually needs aces and kings and East does not hold enough of those. Nor does she have great support for hearts.

The defense will take two diamonds and one heart.

Declarer can discard a losing spade on dummy's good Q. If necessary declarer can finesse in spades howver on this board it will not be necessary.

Some Souths will pass rather than open however in today's game most will open 1. North ahs the values to be in game and will bid the notrump game.

And she will regret her action. She will struggle and likely come to either tricks however er don't see many North's making their game.

Easy may lead a heart. Declarer will rise with the queen to win the trick. She will try the spade finesse which will lose to East. If East returns a heart declarer will win three heart tricks. East shouldn't play hearts again once the Q wins the first trick. West should discourage in hearts and East should trust her partner and not continue the suit.

North will win three spades and two hearts. She will win two clubs and if she is patient and waits for the defense to break diamonds she will have one diamond trick. That brings her to eight tricks however her contract will fail.

Ed Antosz Hand Analysis

Pass2♠All pass

NS have been struggling all afternoon. The bridge gods look favorably at them on this board. South may make 10 tricks on this layout.

West will lead the K. South will win the trick and return a heart. West will win her queen but cannot continue the suit as she will establish declarer's ling heart. If West tables the J declarer can ruff high, draw trump and cash her heart winners. If West continues with a low heart declarer can discard from dummy.

If the defense plays diamonds they will establish a diamond trick for declarer.

It's interesting to note that if declarer places the KQJ in the West hand she can win the opening lead, draw trump and play a high heart. West will take her J. When declarer regains the lead she can take a ruffing finesse against West to win four heart tricks.

She will lose one heart and two diamonds.

The defense is more successful is West's opening lead is a club. The can then keep leading the suit and declarer will lose control of the board as they will run her out of trump. Declarer cannot both ruff clubs in her hand and draw trump.South will make her contract however she will not make any overtricks.

East has no bid at her first turn so she will pass quietly. However when the auction eventually returns to her she will balance and double to let her partner know she holds both minor suits. West will prefer diamonds however North will support her partner's heart suit and the auction will end in 3.

West will probably lead a diamond however should she lead a club will she strike matchpoint gold. The club lead gives the defense four tricks as East will win two tricks and continue the suit. West will ruff the third round of clubs.

On the diamond lead declarer will win her ace when East covers dummy's Q. Declarer will play a heart to dummy. She is not guessing whether to finesse the 10. She should rise with the queen as West will have played the 9. Declarer must ask why West played the (. Either it's a singleton or west holds the J9. The probability favors that the 9 is a singleton. This marks East with the J indicating that the preferable play is to rise with dummy's queen.

Declarer can get to dummy with a spade and given that she has no other entries she should discard a club on dummy's other spade. She will continue spades but East will ruff. Declarer can overruff however she will have restricted her heart losers to one.

She must lose two clubs so she will score an overtrick for a great matchpoint result.

All pass

North will open and South will look for a better place to play. She has no love for spades.

We expect South will lose the six tricks she can do little about. She must lose one spade and two hearts, one diamond and two clubs.

The play however will not go that way. Most Souths will win the opening lead to play a spade. South will be able to discard on diamond on dummy's good spades and she will also discard a club. However she will not be able to ruff her club loser as the defense will play hearts and dummy will be out of trump. This line trades a club loser for a diamond loser. Regardless, NS will only win seven tricks.

East will lead a high club. The lack of stoppers in the suit will have declarer win the third round of clubs.

However this will point declarer to the winning line.

Declarer knows that West holds the ♣K from the play of the first three rounds of clubs. Therefore she will plan to take the heart finesse through West. She'll cash her ace and continue the suit. The Q will popup. The important idea is that declarer played West for that card.

Once hearts are solved declarer will have the remaining tricks
