Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

Due to the fortunate heart split, E-W can make 6, provided they guess the Q. However, getting there will be an almost insoluble problem. After two passes, East will probably open 1NT. It is a very good looking 17 point hand but there is not a more descriptive bid available. If South passes, West will transfer to hearts. Even if East super-accepts, West has nothing more to do but bid 4. If N-S do intervene, it could only have the effect of pushing the opponents to the making slam. Plus 680 should be the normal score, slightly above average. Any pairs who can bid scientifically to the slam deserve the top board they will get!

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

Another very difficult slam to bid. East deals. With such a distributional hand, I like an opening bid of 3. That would not have universal appeal but, with a heart fit from partner, you have a great playing hand. South passes a pre-empt and West surely will bid 4. North’s bid will determine if they have a chance to get to slam. If he simply bids 4, that should end the auction. However, an adventuresome east might bid 5 over 4. Who knows what will happen after that. If North instead doubles 4 and south bids 4, I think I would chance a bid of 6. Without seeing the other hand, it just feels right. If their opponents bid slam in spades, the best E-W can do is sacrifice in 7. They will go down 1100 and might salvage a match point or two. Plus 1430 for N-S should tie for top.

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

Some N-S pairs may not get to game which could be a blessing. North deals and passes. Some Easts will open either 1 or 1. South will presumably overcall 1. Over a 1 opening and a 1 overcall, West will probably bid 2. North raises to 2. If East bids again, South presumably will compete. He might even take a shot at 4. If he does, he better have his guessing shoes on! He will have to take a backward finesse in spades to make it- by leading the Jack out of his hand. If covered, he finesses for the ten on the way back. Well played. Hold your hand back!!

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

This could get interesting. Suppose east opens 2 in first seat. South overcalls 3 and what does west do? He could bid 4, 4 or 4 NT. Over 4, North will probably pass. When it comes around to South, I think he should bid 5. He didn’t show a 2-suiter (with diamonds and hearts) via a Roman Jump to 4 over 2s. Therefore, he is most likely 6-4. West doubles and North corrects to 5. West will likely bid 5 and the slam will be missed. If, instead, West takes a shot and bids 4 NT, he can find out his partner has 2 key cards, even if North bids 5. Just be sure you know whether you are playing DOPI, DEPO or DIPPO! If E-W bid to 6 -unlikely as it seems - N-S must take the 1400 point sacrifice at 7.

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

What a great hand south has!! Once again, West can muddy the waters by opening a non-vulnerable 2 in first chair. North passes and East should bid 4. This will put South in an untenable position. If he bids 4 NT, this would usually show two places to play. North would respond 5. South now bids 5. Assuming they are on the same wave length, North corrects to 5. What next?? South can shoot out 6 and hope for one ace in the North hand. But some will just pass. If the bidding should go three passes, rather than opening 2, I would open the south hand 4 NT. Partner shows one ace and you take a chance on a red-suited slam. Although +980 is the par result, it should be well above average.
