DblPass3All pass

After the routine opening bid and takeout double, South and West are left with deciding the fate of the hand. South might find the hand of preemptive nature due to the heart void and ten minor suit cards, or might have a more positive view because of the nice high card points in the minors. Indeed, South's decisions will be decisive, but the key factor is invisible -- the spade situation.

South might pass, redouble, raise constructively, or preempt after East's double, and the choice might be more psychological or stylistic than "correct." A 3 bid is probably a bit of an underbid of the values, knowing the opponents have a heart fit and attempting to disrupt their ability to find the correct level. Hence the final pass, hoping they have missed the mark. While a final 4 might not be doubled, leading to a good score, rebidding after preempting is akin to "passing late across the middle" in football -- giving the opponents too many good options.

West's decision over 3 is difficult but correct, a Responsive Double telling partner to pick a suit, rather than changing the course of the EW plan from offense to defense. If misunderstood, the double will pick up a paltry 100 points, while a proper interpretation will net 140. At IMPs the difference would be trivial. At matchpoints monumental.

The play in 3 is of consequence, of course. The preempt should warn East of the likelihood of a bad trump break, and the best play after a club opening lead is to ply the T and run it unless covered.

Plus 140, as advertised.

"BUT!!!" cries someone from the back of the room -- East has only ten points.

Nonsense. East has a "Five Loser Hand!" plus two singletons in the opponents' suits AND a partner who has values for a raise AND a trump fit AND at least nine trumps.

Bridge is an easy tame. Almost slam, never less than game on this auction and these values.

Need a bridge aphorism? "Six-Five, come alive."

There is a nice treatment that is gaining traction in bridge circles. Responder's jumps to the three level in a suit ranking below the opening suit show 9-11 HCP and six or seven cards in the suit -- without support for opener's major. East's hand meets the description of the method and solves the EW bidding problem beautifully.

West should pass, reaching the par result, but might be (unjustifiably) rewarded with a 3NT bid. Would you lead a spade or a heart from the North hand on that auction? A club lead seems normal, but would be punished when West takes ten or eleven tricks (Eleven?? Would you risk a finesse when you already have a top?)

Playing 2 over 1, East should not bid 2 over 1, for the hand is not of game-forcing strength. It is the sort of hand that Standard American players would bid 2 and rebid 3, however, and play there. Standard players may even wonder what the problem is, and why a treatment of jumping to 3 over 1 (or 1) is necessary. The answer, of course, is that 2 is a Game Force in the popular 2/1 system, and the East hand is not worth a Game Force, although it is close to being so.

Suppose East is playing a diamond contract (5 for critical mass consideration). South's lead of the A would give EW all thirteen tricks, so let's look elsewhere. A safe 9 would give declarer more than could be handled, so long as North plays small, and assuredly no one would play the Q at trick one -- well in a large field someone might.

So don't be alarmed to see a precious few making eleven tricks or more in diamonds, but only a very few.

Whether West bids 1 or 1NT does not matter. East is not raising with three spades, good though they be, when holding a seven card heart suit.

Part scores are us.

A heart lead from South seems likely against any contract, so 2NT from West seems best. The sequence shows West inviting game with a balance 11-count or so. East has insufficient values to accept, so the perfect contract is reached with rather routine bidding.

North will lead a heart and South will play the 8 or cover the 9 and West will win the Q. Diamonds will be played and South will win on the first round and return partner's suit, setting up three heart tricks and two aces. Making two. East will, of course, play on clubs after the hearts are played for the eighth trick.

A 2 weak jump overcall is possible as well, but 3NT will still be the final spot.

Nine tricks look easy -- five hearts, one diamond, one spade, and two clubs. Where is the tenth?
Probably not happening after the normal spade lead (on the given auction). A club lead would give trick ten away, and a low diamond would also. On a passive lead of a heart, it would take the unnatural lead of a club intermediate from West, running the card when not covered, or continuing the suit if covered, to achieve ten tricks.

Even more unnatural would be making that winning play after a spade lead.

Plus 600 will be the normal result.

Pass3NTAll pass 

"Pure" 19 HCP balanced hands with a five card suit often stretch or upgrade to 20-value to show the approximate value of the hand. Here that upgrade is rewarded -- North, by the way, upgrades as well, liking the good five-card club suit, despite a lack of control cards -- no worries, because South has those?

1 passed out is not beyond expectation as a potential result, but many North players will bid 1NT and find themselves raised to 3.

The diamond suit is weak, but the opponent's 4-4 distribution saves NS's bacon.

Few will get to game here, despite trying. North's weak clubs, in conjunction with the South honors and East's A being onside, make the game a bare make.

If you boldly went where few dared, congratulations and good luck in your future endeavors. Fortune smiled.
