Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

North has a great first seat 2 opener. South will certainly want game, but which game? He might start by bidding 2 to check on a fit--a forcing bid for most partnerships. If 2 isn't forcing, South can flip a coin and try 3NT or 4. When North leads trump, he should let the 10 ride if it isn't covered.

All pass   

North has a pretty normal 2 opening, and South gets to figure out how to proceed from there. South certainly has a lot to think about, whether to play in NT, s or s, and whether N/S have a slam or not. I can certainly see that some pairs will end up too high, and that final contracts at the game level will include 3NT, 4 and 4. After North's opening bid, South will certainly have some thoughts of slam, but unless North has very solid hearts, there will be two losers in a contract, suggesting that South can't gain much by inquiring about North's hand with a 2NT bid and should instead look for a fit, assuming 2 is forcing. If North then shows secondary values in s, South might settle in 3NT, although a 4 is also possible, as South will feel like their suit is good enough to play opposite shortness. Alas, East has other thoughts on the matter, and 4 is actually the worst of the three possible games.

3NT with South declaring is a difficult contract for the defense to manage. Let's say that West leads a likely . South can win with the King, hiding the Queen and immediately lead the 10. What is West to do? If West ducks, declarer might play the King and then finesse the 10 which will get declarer up to at least nine tricks. But, it won't take much for West to err badly on the hand. West could choose to go up with the Ace, reasoning that declarer likely has a singleton, and they then continue with a low , the 9 will win, declarer will cash the top s, find the suit is breaking and end up with 12 tricks!!! Somewhat unlikely perhaps, but there will be some +490 scores scattered around. Switching to any suit is problematic for West, and the only real way for West to hold declarer to nine tricks is to duck the 10. With careful play, declarer can also make 4, though the poor breaks in the black suits make the play more difficult than it first appears. A lead from East is particularly problematic. A 4 contract is the most hazardous of all, and declarer is likely to lose the two red Aces and at least two black suit tricks.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

West may open 1. If he does, North will double and East will eke out a single raise (2). That will stop South--he's good enough to bid 1NT but not 2NT. Will North reopen with another double? He's light for that action but might try it. Then South will have to decide whether to pass (scary) or try 2NT. It's unlikely that anyone will penalty double 2, so down one--or even down two--should be okay.

The final contract will depend in large part on whether West chooses to open or not. The vulnerability is favorable for a light third seat opening, but on the other hand, West's suit is pretty poor, and this could come back to bite them later in the auction, as the bidding diagram shows. If West passes, N/S are likely to end up in either 1NT, but might play in s if North shows an unbalanced hand. With an 11 HCP hand a five card major, it looks pretty normal to open in 3rd seat at this vulnerability, but as already mentioned, the suit quality is poor. North has a normal double if West does open 1 and after East raises to 2, South will have to decide what their overall plan is. For many pairs, a natural 2NT bid is not available. If this is the case, then South has no real option except to pass, and then decide what to do if North reopens with another double. If 2NT by South is still not natural then South will have to choose between bidding 3NT and passing the double of 2. Passing will work out well if North stays off of a lead, as the defense should be able to get two tricks, three tricks and the minor suit Aces on a lead if they are careful. How will 3NT do? Communication to the South hand is not easy, but depending on the defense, declarer has some chances. Let's say that West leads a high and declarer ducks twice winning the third round of the suit and then leads the 9. West can win the King and will probably lead a . Declarer wins, leads a to the 10 and then a to the King. A to the Ace, one high pitching a low and then a led towards the Queen and declarer is up to nine tricks. How can the defense prevail to hold declarer to eight tricks? It turns out that things can get a little difficult for declarer if both East and West duck the first trick, but I don't think many will find this defense. So, any declarer who finds themselves in 3NT has a chance for a big matchpoint score, as +600 will easily beat even those who are defending a doubled contract.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

West has the wrong hand for a preempt opposite an unpassed partner, and he just isn't good enough for 1. SO North gets to open 1. South will respond with 1NT and North will happily bid her hearts. With only 7 HCP, South will pass right now. The spade honors cooperate to afford an overtrick.

For the second hand in a row, aggressive E/W bidding might give N/S a headache and South might again be faced with deciding whether to pass a double with a four card trump holding sitting under the opponents' trump length. At this vulnerability, West would be much happier if one of the honors were in the suit, making both their long suit better, and making it less likely that E/W should actually be in a contract. But you can't have everything, and I expect most West pairs will open 2. Some North's will double right away and others will overcall 2. Over either bid, East can raise to 3 and South will have to decide what to do. With only six HCP, passing is certainly reasonable, especially as North might be pretty light for their bid, given the vulnerability. South could possibly make a responsive type double, but I just don't think they're strong enough for that. Certainly an immediate 3NT would be a stretch. South knows North is probably void in s, so South's stopper is quite possibly just a single stopper. Even if North reopens with a double, South should realize that their lack of any honors makes a source of tricks in NT difficult and that the honors are relatively wasted in a suit contract, so South should be conservative in their response. Overall, I think South can judge well to stay low on this hand. A NT contract will be a disaster, as a lead followed by careful defense will set declarer by at least four tricks. A contract must contend with the poor break, but offsetting that is the nice layout of the suit, and the defense might well help declarer in s. In theory, 3 can make, but in practice I can see how declarer might go down one.

Will West have the nerve to open 2 on this ratty hand? If he does, East will think he is sacrificing over N-S's nice heart fit, but it turns out 4 may make. Ah, the joys of unbalanced hands! The hand looks so promising at South's first view of the dummy, buy East holds those two key minor suit kings.

For the third hand in a row, E/W might make things annoying for N/S and put South onto the spot to make the right bidding choice. Who taught all these guys to preempt anyway? Back when I was learning bridge....Strong Twos....grumble, grumble. West is weak for a vulnerable weak two, and some will decide to pass. 6-4 distribution usually makes a hand better, but the biggest problem for West is how weak their suits are. If West does pass initially, should they bid after North opens 1NT and South bids 2? It's pretty dicey, and E/W are a lot less likely to find a "sacrifice" of 4 if West passes originally. Assuming West opens 2, North should double, and East can really put the screws to N/S by bidding 4. South will want to bid with a 5-5 hand and some values, and if the King were in another suit, bidding would look much more appealing. As it is, South needs North to have four of the five missing important cards (A, AK, AK, assuming that the A is with the opponents.) This looks like a little bit of a stretch, but it also seems possible that 4 is making. Playing IMPS, South should probably bid, as bidding is wrong only when both 4 and 5 are going down. At matchpoints, it's less clear. As it happens, 4 is indeed making, though declarer will need to ruff out the Ace if North doesn't lead it. If North leads a , declarer should be able to get the hand right, but things will be a little trickier if North leads a red suit, as declarer doesn't know the King is singleton and might use a dummy entry to lead s and end up an entry short, eventually losing three tricks. Any plus score either way won't be terrible on this hand, but top scores will go to any pair who bids and makes game, as 4 is an easy make for N/S. In fact, on the bidding shown, South might make 5. How is that, you ask? West might lead a low , hoping to get to the East hand for a ruff, and this will not work out so well for E/W.

North opens 1. After South responds 1, many will find the NT game which founders with an opening club lead when South plays it. If North turns out to be declarer, he might get a heart lead, creating his ninth trick before clubs are led.

N/S would make 3NT on anything but a lead or a lead and a switch, and I admit, I think some experts would be tempted to open the North hand with 1NT, but most will make the more normal bid of 1 followed by a 2 rebid. With most 10 counts, South should try to keep the bidding alive over 2, but with so many scattered Quacks (Queens and Jacks), it would be reasonable for South to just pass 2. If South does pass, West has a chance to double 2 and get his side into the bidding, but it's hard to see how either East or West can bid if South shows some values by raising to 3. A contract by E/W has exactly one loser in each suit, unless declarer manages to lose two tricks. A contract also has four losers, but the defens has to be a little careful to avoid setting up the Jack for a pitch, or setting up the suit, or giving a ruff/sluff at some point in s. There are enough defensive pitfalls, that I suspect a contract will often make 10 tricks. Any E/W who manage to get into the bidding and declare (and make) a contract should have a near top.

East opens 1. These days, many will bid 1 with the South hand. No matter: West raises hearts and North will either stay out of it or bid a risky 3. N-S have to be careful: E-W may quit in a competitive auction--they are vulnerable after all--and settle for a sure profit--might even double.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

A likely auction is 1--1;1--2(4th suit)--2; 4. Will North-South think of slam? They're off a cashing Ace and the trump King--not a likely slam when it hinges not only on trump but also on the location of the J and lower spots. Enjoy the overtricks.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

East opens 1 and South either doubles or bids 1NT. West won't care--she'll make a vigorous preemptive raise of clubs and bid them again if necessary. If N-S get very high, East might make a penalty double; in that case, having made a preemptive raise, West can pass with a clear conscience.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

North opens 1. East passes, and South may as well, though some players are loath to pass with an Ace in the hand. With only two in either major, I'd pass. West has some options, depending on their agreements, but double is a likely choice. If partner bids clubs, West can "correct" to 2 at the same low level. This time East will bid hearts but will pass hurriedly if West raises. Nine tricks should be easy.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

West opens 1, North passes, and East bids 1. West's heart raise will will buy the hand. Even the nasty trump break won't stop eight tricks, especially not if you lead the 9 and let it ride (a double, "deep" finesse).

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

South opens 1. North bids 1NT, and South now bids 2. Don't pass 1NT on the second round with a singleton. North might raise to 3 just to deter a balancing reopening by E-W. Play the clubs by laying down the Ace and leading toward the Q, limiting yourself to one trump loser.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

West opens 1NT, denies a major in answer to Stayman, and passes East's 2NT rebid. South should have taken advantage of the opportunity to double 2, indicating that he has a decent club suit and would like the lead. West is lucky to have four with the A9--that's two stoppers.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

West opens in fourth seat. Some will open 1 to have an easy rebid of 2 if partner responds 1. This time East says 1. Raising to 2 with three card support and a singleton is justifiable. South will probably lead a low spade. Seeing the dummy, North will win and return her singleton club. Fun-fun-fun for the defense, especially if declarer plays the K right away.

With high hopes, East opens 1. West bids 1--NOT a preemptive jump with 8 HCP. North might preempt in spades, and East will persist with her excellent suit. To no avail--no one can make three of anything.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

West opens 1 and East responds 1. Now West jumps to 3 and East has to decide: just pass or try 3NT with those two black kings. This time boldness pays off, since there are nine easy tricks: the six diamonds and three aces, No time to get frisky and try the heart finesse with either black suit lead.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

West opens 1, which is likely to pass around to South. South's bid choice will depend on their agreements. For those whose balancing 1NT is weaker than opening NT, they double and then bid the NT unless partner bids spades. If 1NT here is 15-17, that would be the choice. A club lead will surely limit them to seven tricks.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

North opens 2NT and will end up in 3NT when he has only two hearts. At least a spade lead is more likely that the more worrisome diamond choice. Get to the dummy with a club and lead low toward the Q for a chance at overtricks.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

East opens 1. South bis 1 and West freely bis 1 with his five card suit. Now East has to decide--rebid the diamonds with a jump or just bid 2: he's not strong enough for a jump-shift. If West bids 2NT over 2, East will sashay back to 3. High enough when the finesse loses.
