N/S should play in 3 at most tables, though I can see some pairs might get too high and play 4. North has a perfectly normal 1NT opener, assuming you are playing 15-17 strong NT. With 9 HCP, the South hand is in the invitational range, and with two four card majors, should start with 2. Upon discovering the fit, South can invite by raising to 3. North has a minimum in terms of HCP, but their hand is better than it might appear for a contract, as the HCP are concentrated in high honors, the trump suit is good, and the hand has a ruffing value. So, I can see how some North players might raise to game. Given that game prospects aren't certain even if the North hand were to hold the Queen, it should be obvious that the South hand is somewhat marginal as an invite. Certainly 3 isn't a certain make just looking at the N/S hands.

Is there any realistic way for declarer to make either eight tricks or ten tricks? If East leads a , this will be best for the defense, and declarer will have almost no chance to make 10 tricks. Let's say East leads a , though, not wanting to lead from the suit into the strong NT hand. Unless West wins and finds the unlikely switch, declarer has a chance to prevail. Assume West wins the Ace and leads a . Declarer can win and lead a small to the 8. Now, West has another chance to lead a , but if they don't, declarer can pull a second round of trump, play a to the King and a to the 10, allowing them to pitch the loser from the South hand. Although this requires the defense to fail to lead s several times, and for declarer to get the suit right, it will happen at some tables, and making 10 tricks should be a top score even if N/S aren't in game.

On a lead, if declarer takes the Ace right away, they will be in danger of not even making nine tricks if they aren't careful. It will take some errors in the play, but it's possible declarer will allow the opponents to pull a third round of trump and end up losing two tricks to go along with one loser in each other suit. I think this less likely than declarer making a 10th trick after a lead, but both results will be low frequency, and most of the matchpoints will be won or lost on whether N/S are able to stop short of game.

Good N/S pairs should have a chance to bid to the excellent 6 contract. Looking at just the N/S hands, the best contract is 7 but this will be harder to bid. Whether N/S get to slam at all will depend in part on how South evaluates their hand. A six card minor suit in an otherwise balanced hand is not a deterrent for opening 1NT. With South's distribution, I would always open 1NT with the appropriate strength. So, given that South has 16 HCP, why does the bidding diagram not show a 1NT opening? Because I think the South hand is too strong for this. With the entire hand being good controls, and an excellent six card suit, the hand is too good for either 1NT or or opening 1 and then bidding 3. I often use an alternate hand evaluation scheme (such as the one implemented here: http://www.jeff-goldsmith.org/cgi-bin/knr.cgi?hand=ax+xx+akj98x+axx) to validate my instincts in cases like this. On this particular hand, the strength is evaluated as 19.6, puttig the hand closer to a 2NT opening than a 1NT opening. The current hand is further evidence that the South hand is stronger than it's HCP would indicate. If South opens 1NT, many North players will simply transfer to 4 and pass. Aggressive North players might make a mild slam invitation by starting with 2, and if they do, South should certainly cooperate, but most Norths will not look for slam.

If South opens 1 and then bids 2NT, North will know have an easy time driving to slam. The shown bidding example is one way to get there. Is there a realistic way to get to 7 using standard methods? The only way is for South to open 1 and rebid 3. Although this looks like an underbid to me, it might work out better on the actual hand. If North is able to investigate a contract, but eventually ask for keycards in s, then the grand might be reached. For example, 1-1-3-3-3NT-4-4-4NT...might do it, but the reality is that reaching the grand will be very unlikely for most pairs and just reaching a small slam on this hand should result in an above average result. Although 7 is by FAR the best grand slam contract, the friendly lie of the suit insures that 13 tricks will be made in both a and a NT contract.

Whether North decides to overcall 1 or not, E/W should play in a partial on this hand. The West hand is not the best opening hand in the world, and would be a much better hand if the Ace were in one of the minor suits. However, most players have adopted the modern trend to open all 12 HCP hands that don't have a serious flaw (such as 4333 distribution.) Although the minor suits aren't pretty, at least West doesn't have rebid problems. Assuming West opens 1, the North hand also isn't a thing of beauty. However, given the friendly vulnerability, and the possibility that N/S have a fit, overcalling 1, though minimal, looks normal. To North's surprise, East will be able to bid a five card suit. South might bid 2 showing a limit raise in s, but the 4333 distribution, the honors in the opponents suits, and the possible poor placement of the King suggest downgrading the hand and just bidding 2. If South weren't a passed hand, then 2 would certainly be a better choice, but as a passed hand, and given that South will push at this vulnerability to raise on a light hand, 2 would be quite reasonable. No matter what South chooses, West will not have a bid and North will either bid 2 over 2 or pass a direct 2 bid. With 10 HCP, East will feel obligated to bid again and will double 2 at many tables. This will allow E/W to get to 3.

As it happens, E/W can do best by passing 2 doubled, if East leads a . With moderately careful play, the defense can score two ruffs, two tricks, the Ace and the red Aces for seven tricks, setting 2 by two tricks. A contract can make 10 tricks on a non-trump lead and can always make nine tricks, but the poor trump break will provide some difficulties, only offset by the friendly lie of the suit. +110 looks better than average to me, as some will defend 2 undoubled and other tables might pass the hand out. Anything better than +110 will certainly be a near top for E/W.

E/W will be hard pressed to bid 3NT on this hand, unless East is very aggressive. Best E/W scores are more likely to go to those who manage to double N/S when they bid too high. Despite holding two unstopped suits, the West hand is a 1NT opening bid unless you are a very conservative bidder indeed. N/S pairs will have a variety of methods for showing a one suited hand, with some being able to bid 2 naturally, some doubling to show a one suiter, and some bidding 2 to show any one suiter (committing their side to the three level, a somewhat dangerous option given the balanced nature of the hand. If North does bid 3, either directly, or after starting with an artificial bid, then East will do well to double, holding a four card suit and knowing West has at least a doubleton. If North bids 2 naturally, the E/W bidding agreements will be tested. For most pairs, systems will be "on". In other words, East will be able to make their normal systemic bids over 2, including 2 and 2 as transfers, and will double to bid Stayman. However, have you as a pair discussed whether a 2NT bid promises a stopper or not? If 2NT is natural, then one easy solution is to use a direct 2NT bid to promise a stopper and for double (ostensibly Stayman) followed by 2NT to deny a stopper (or vice versa). However, if your bidding agreements (when there is no interference) have no direct NT invitational bid, with all NT invites having to start with Stayman, then you will have difficulty with this hand, as East will have no way to confirm or deny a stopper. As it happens, with the , and suits all positioned well for declarer, nine tricks will come home in a NT contract. However, on a low lead, things are likely to get tricky unless declarer puts up the Queen. As it happens, careful play will lead to South being endplayed even if declarer ducks an opening lead, so most careful declarers will make nine tricks. With only 23 HCP between them, I don't expect many E/W pairs to end up in 3NT, but any who do and who end up making it should score a top.
