9 Tricks at No Trump is easier to make than 11 tricks at a Minor,
most duplicate players say! Even if you bid the Minor Game, you score
less than NT.

At a team game, its not so bad, if the minor game is (more) secure.

There are 6 Heart tricks (with a 3-1 split) and 6 Diamond tricks (with at worst
a 4-1 split) as well as the Ace of Spades.

Unless the defenders take their Ace of Clubs on the opening lead, they should loose it.

South has an "east" route to a Spade GAME, if she does NOT get RUFFED - after
the lead of a heart singleton, without first pulling trumps.

Win the Heart in Hand, play King of Spades, then finesse in Spades, and Declarer
will loose a Spade, Ace of Diamonds, and Ace of Clubs.

No trump does better tho!

.
One persons opinion.

If South & West pass, North opens 1 Club.
East bids 1 Heart.
South, with two queens and a Jack (5 HCP) ought to pass or negative double?????
If South uses a negative double, West can bid 1 NT. West can't bid two of a NEW suit with less than 10 HCP.

If South passes, West can bid 1 Spade (showing 6 + HCP)
When East re-bids hearts, West can NOT bid 3 Diamonds because bidding
a new suit at the 2 level which shows 10+ HCP!
