`Owning the Boss Suit does have advantages. West's hand is too "holey" to compete to the four level, and too bereft of aces. Sure, it makes 4, but it takes the diamond finesse onside as well as having the club queen onside (guessing who has the ace won't be that hard, but what matters, surprisingly, is the Q.

North competes with 6-5 and five spades. Right!

North is barely good enough for a 3 bid, despite 12 HCP -- 4333, no aces, a worthless xxx in diamonds, and mostly quacky. North should have no thoughts of stronger action --there are four "potential" cover cards, barely enough for a limit raise.

Will West actually make a takeout double? If so, 3 by North is a standout action, comparable to a Bergen-esque preemptive raise without competition -- for me the only part of Bergen raises that is attractive. If that scenario does occur, East has an easy 4 bid, but South won't be done: 4 following the LAW of Total Tricks is an easy competitive action at favorable vulnerability. Nor is East done (but West was!). East's 5-5 six loser hand with five controls (A=2, K=1, twelve total per deal) will have no fear for a 5 bid. But now what? South has shot his values and West will undoubtedly be inclined to regret the original double. With just three little hearts, passing 5 would appear to be a normal action. No one is going to bid slam. Can NS muster a save at the five level? That will actually beat par, but par has been taking a beating of late.

How much competition will there be if West does not double? A Bergen 3 bid by North will put immense pressure on East; most will pass, and that will lead to the following conclusions: (1) preempts work (2) if you have values and an option to reveal them to partner, get into the action early!

4 works better in part because of the lack of communication between the NS hands, rather than because of the spade fit -- which is not attractive at all (5-2 is not especially useful).

3NT is a likely result when East can suggest the heart stopper after West has to conjure up a bid in the contested auction. West will feel relieved not to be playing spades holding just a doubleton, quality to the contrary notwithstanding.

Craig Hemphill Hand Analysis

Although I personally have sworn off opening 1NT with a five-card major, South's hand does fall into the category of hands I used to make that bid experimentally, and the bid will be attractive to many of that persuasion.

North won't be able to resist transferring into the five card heart suit, running, without fault of NS, into a miserable split. The play can take a dozen directions, but the bottom line is that NS will not have a happy ending. Damage control will be the name of the game, and that will likely be achieved with declarer's ability to elope with small trumps and good timing.

NS are unlikely to enter the discussion. East might pass 1, however, and then South would act with that attractive shape and intermediates. But if East bids 1, South will likely remain silent (well, there will be some who like the void and nine major suit cards, but they will be in the minority).

So 1 - 1; 2. Now how will East react to that strong jump shift? Is it totally game forcing? if so, then the bad club split will sink the ship, and perhaps (A) east should have passed 1 (B) West should have a better hand with which to jump shift (C) bring a rabbit's foot to the game.

In any event, does your partnership have a method to put on the breaks after 2? Is this a comparable situation to a reverse? I'd say yes, but there is no consensus. Discuss in your partnership. If you do play comparable methods, then there are still choices, one old-fashioned, whereby 3 shows weakness, and two more modern ideas: (A) 2NT Lebensohl , forcing 3, after which East will happily pass. (B) 2, the cheapest new suit at the two level, taking the place of 2NT as the weakness bid, after which the goal will again be to bid or pass 3.

So there are many questions to be asked in this apparently simple auction, and the only point that can be made is for YOUR partnership to discuss and agree.

My preferences? The jump shift is INTENDED as a Game Force . lebensohl is ON, and responder is thereby empowered to suggest NOT following the intended Game Force. That leaves deciding whether 2 is the weakness bid in this auction or 2NT. And that varies from partnership to partnership, even for me.

While the computer finds 2 to be the best contract, not many humans will play there, and 1NT will be the contract when North opens 1. When North chooses to open 1, there will be a fair chance for clubs to be the final contract -- unless conventions get in the way. For example, playing "XYZ," a new form of New Minor, after a 1NT rebid, 2 is a relay to 2, whether the opening bid was 1 or 1, so playing 2 is rather "out." All conventions have their drawbacks, and this one is "on" XYZ .

Well, just play 1NT, then, and perhaps East will lead a heart rather than 1. North did open 1, right? Will the heart lead will hurt, yielding four heart tricks, three clubs, and one spade, for plus 120, beating the theoretical maximum and the score for 2 making three.

So there, naysayers!

The upshot is that there is so much play and defense ahead that there is opportunity in many theoretically inferior contracts, and it is then possible to defend playing the contract that will provide the best matchpoint score if it succeeds.

  1. Not exploring the various forms of Puppet Stayman , for simplicity.

Sometimes players will bid 2NT with 19 HCP and a balanced hand, sometimes not. Why? When is right? This particular South hand qualifies in some respects for a 2NT opening bid -- aces being undervalued, the four aces being worth a significant extra value. Goren added one point for all four aces, and he was mostly correct: under-evaluating, if anything, one point is not a sufficient upgrade. Various theoreticians have attempted more precise evaluations for aces, ranging from about 4.25 to 4.5, but the problem with independent evaluation is that disassociating the value of a particular card from the specific hand does not very much matter. Instead, it is better simply to understand that all honors work better in conjunction with other honors, and better in long suits than in short suits.

In this hand, the diamond honors work well together in a long suit and, oh, by the way, long suits are worthy of being upgraded on their own, typically by one point.

So the hand in question, while consisting of 19 "points" on the 4321 McCampbell/Work/Goren scale, is really worth two upgrades, and should be evaluated as 21. THAT is worthy of a 2NT opener, is it not?

The negative aspect of opening 2NT is that 2NT is notorious for being a slam-killer, because it uses bidding space and deprives the constructive side's opportunity to explore for a slam. Well, this layout might have been an example for the support of that proposition, except for the fact that the 6 slam is difficult to visualize and perhaps harder to make (ruff a club, run the diamonds, and West is squeezed in the majors).

To make eleven tricks in notrump declarer will have to take two major suit finesses.
