Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

I imagine most South's will open 3 despite being vulnerable. West will overcall 3 which East may or may not raise to four. There isn’t much to the play. West just needs to arrange to ruff one spade on the board. Plus 620 will be above average. However, what might happen if South decides not to preempt in front of his partner. West will open 1 and North presumably will overcall 1. East raises to 2 and South bids 2. Now, when the opponents get to 4, either North or South might bid 4. It is not likely but there is a better chance of finding the good save on this auction. N-S will never find the 4 save if South opens 3.

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

Looking at all the hands, most would prefer to play 6 rather than 6, if they had to bid a slam. Not on this hand as there are two inescapable losers in clubs. If you can arrange to play 6 from the West seat and play the hearts correctly, you will have a continent-wide top. This will not happen in the real world. The top score is 3 NT making 5. This requires cashing the A, K while there is still an entry to the West hand. This gives you four hearts, four clubs, two diamonds and one spade. Some may get to 4, making 5 if East opens 1, reverses in diamonds and later supports hearts. North will certainly interject a 2 bid which might complicate the E-W auction. Plus 660 should be at or near the top.

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

This hand is cold for 3 grand slams for N-S but I wouldn’t be surprised if no one bids 7. How can you? Maybe if E-W stay quiet. Unlikely in these days of indiscriminate preempts! North opens 1 and some aggressive Easts may bid 3. After all, it is match points. South will now bid 3 and West may jump to 5. If North bids, they may get to 6. It will make but, on a bad day, it wouldn’t. If North passes and the N-S agreement is that this is forcing, South will likely bid 5. Now, North can place the final contract. If he bids 6, South might take a chance on 7. I see little other way to get to a grand with interference. If E-W don’t compete and North can show his void in clubs, it will still be difficult.

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

With South as the declarer, N-S can make 4 NT. However, North would be down three at the same contract. Quite a difference. It might be difficult for N-S to get to 3 NT. North deals and opens 1. South could bid 1 NT, 2 if not game forcing or possibly 3 invitational. West will compete somehow. He will either just bid spades or show both suits if room is available. If South becomes declarer at 3 NT or 5, both of which are making, E-W need to compete to 5. This is a good non-vulnerable sacrifice and goes down only 500.
