When you do not want to play short of game, bid game! West might have been toying with transferring and passing 3. East, with NINE controls (A=2 K=1) has a monster hand, just about good enough to upgrade to 2. Bearing that potential upgrade in mind and having found a fit, East should not allow the auction to die in a part score.

With four trumps and similar thoughts, an advance, implied, "out-of-the-blue," control/cue bid of 3 would have been appropriate. Then your partnership must decide how responder can sign off. Re-transfer or not? Having played both ways, the first thing to say is that "any agreement is better than no agreement." The second observation is that retransfers are not as important as having every control bid toward slam available. I no longer like the retransfer idea. Note that 4 makes from either side, although luckily. When North is on lead and plays the Q, the proper play of the suit will enable one diamond winner to discard one club loser, and another club loser on the K. So the lead, although effective in one sense, helps promote a trick in return. Fair is fair.

An awkward hand. South's 2 is not classical -- in fact, it violates related negative principles of not having a void and not having good support for a second suit. Also, the spade suit is topless, although it does have very good texture (intermediates).

North might well double. That turns out to be oh, so right here, picking up a tidy 300 points. But many North's, not sure, will pass. The efficiency of the double is heavily dependent on the three tricks available in clubs, not at all clear from the NS defensive point of view.

So when the 3 overcall is passed back to South, a fair picture of North's hand (fairly good values, but not a clear defense to 3) surfaces in bright spotlight to South, who infers some playing values in the North hand, else East would have acted.

Right! Too bad North cannot see as well as South, for game will still be missed. Nevertheless, plus 100 defending 3 undoubled is unsatisfactory and 3 will score better than that dismal return on equity.

If West steps out of line a second time, surely North will punish.

A straightforward auction, leading to ten tricks unless West leads a club. Then it's eleven.

The LAW of Total Tricks tells South to bid to the level of trumps held by his side when both sides have a fit. Assuming that North has five spades, that would be ten trumps, hence 4 is the right call.

The LAW works out this time when compared with hearts, but the double fit in clubs and hearts never came to light, so EW missed the club slam. No biggee, for no one will drop the singleton K offside -- in fact, all inferences are to the contrary.

Minus 500 should be a good score for NS, but might not be in practice. (I hate it when that happens).

Some Norths might rebid 3, and some might open 4. No matter. South will force to game and in hearts, the rebid major, never notrump. . . Oh, dear, it makes 5NT. Who'd a thunk it?

South's role is to inform North of some useful values and not to sit on his hands. In that way, having bid 1NT to show values, most likely both a heart and a diamond stop (yes!), North can utilize the possession of the Boss Suit to corral the declaration.

Plus 140 when declarer wins the heart lead, finesses the Q, dropping the jack, cashes the second heart, and tosses a diamond on the table. East is endplayed and must yield a trick or two.

If East is so determined to bid game as to redouble and cue bid spades (SHOWING spades, since North implied both majors -- when two suits have been shown, you SHOW, not ask), then clubs must not be a problem, so West upgrades the running diamonds into an acceptance of the game invitation. If East's clubs and hearts were reversed, a different try would have been made.

All pass   

12 HCP isn't enough to ensure game these days opposite an opening bid. Be sure to give partner some leeway to encourage opening the bidding. It does pay to get in the first stab at the contract, so giving some rope will usually get good results. Partner will also appreciate the confidence you show by sharing the decision making.
