Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

I would guess that most E-W pairs will get to game but few, if any will bid the very lucky slam. West deals and opens 1. North will probably overcall a sub-standard 2 with the good suit. East bids 2 and South will likely raise to 3, anemically! West will likely rebid his diamonds. East can assume his partner is short in clubs, if they have been bid and raised. He doesn’t have a convenient bid that is forcing. He might bid 4. If so, he will get a very suitable dummy. If he rebids 3, hopefully West will boost him to four. If he temporizes with 3, he will be raised to 4. Now, he can hardly go wrong as either 4 or 4 will make 6. Plus 680 may be slightly above average. Kudos to any pair who gets to slam.

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

East deals and these days most will open 1. South overcalls 1. West has a choice of calls. He could bid 2 and await further developments or make a forcing diamond raise if possible. Some might just bid 3 NT but, with two unstopped suits, that is not recommended. Over a likely 2, North may bid 3. East will have to bid 4 and West should get them to 5. Although N-S have a good save in 5 (300), this will be non-existent. Some greedy souls who play 3 NT and get a spade lead-may take a club finesse right away. If South woodenly continues spades, West will emerge with 12 tricks and a top!

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

Although E-W are cold for 4 slams (6 NT, 6, 6 and 6) few should bid slam. East will either pass or open 1. West will respond 1. Surely a vulnerable North will pass, won’t he? East raises to 2. When West eventually bids key card, he will find out he is off an ace and the Q. He should sign off in 5 and be plus 680. Some may take a shot at 6 NT and will be rewarded this time.

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

To bid or not to bid? Presumably, the auction will start 1 - P. South has a choice of bidding 1 or 2. Over 1, West might overcall 2. If south bids 2, it takes a little more courage to bid 3, especially since the North hand is unlimited. Assume West passes as does North. Now East must balance or he is headed for a bad result. If he doubles, West will likely bid 2, hoping for 4 card support. Neither North nor South has another bid but North might possibly compete with 3. If so, that will end the auction. E-W must maneuver a diamond ruff to set three hearts. Otherwise, -140 for E-W will be on the bottom.

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

The top score on this board will go to any N-S pair who manage to roll into 3 NT. This seems nearly impossible but with a good guess, it makes 5. Let’s say North declares 3 NT and East leads the J. In order to make 5, North must duck this trick. This seems counter-intuitive and, of course, it all depends on who has the A. The same J lead will hold 4 to five. If any pair bids slam and receives that lead, they will go down. They can either finesse the club or play the king, ace and another club. When the queen falls, they can go to the dummy and lead the good J, hoping West has to ruff with the A. But, alas!
