Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

With a combined 32 hcp’s, a few pairs may get to slam. With the bad splits in hearts and spades, ten tricks are all you can make in spades. No trump plays a trick better but is harder to reach. East deals and passes. South opens a strong no trump. If West makes a bid to show the majors, he will get what he deserves!! North will bid 2. When he finds the 4-4 major fit, he will do well just to bid 4. If either the J falls or the hearts split 3-3 , either slam (6 or 6 NT) will make. Aggressive bidders will be punished on this board.

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

West deals and opens 1. North most likely will overcall 1. East makes a Negative Double and South passes. If West simply bids 3 - an underbid - East should carry on to four. He has a singleton, 5 trumps and a club fit. Although double dummy, the hand can be held to 4 (small diamond lead from North and a spade switch from South), the most likely result for E-W should be +450. The K, though costly, seems to be a very normal lead. The pairs who bid and make 5 should share the top score.

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

This is a tough hand to get to 7 NT but the club grand slam is a bit easier. North deals and opens 1. East passes and South responds 1. North has a tough rebid. 3 seems like an underbid but should get the job done on this board. If south now jumps to 4, this should confirm clubs as trumps and show a singleton heart. North can now cue bid 4 and South can show the A. North bids 5 and South can show the K (his partner already showed the ace). South can count 13 tricks in clubs but only 12 in no trump. However, just the J will allow him to make 7. At imps, it would be safer to bid 7 but match points is a different game.. Those who take a chance on 7 NT will have a great score!

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

At first glance, clubs could be the best and safest contract. However, no trump is where the match points often are, as in this case. After 2 passes, North opens 1. East may be tempted to bid with his 12 points. He can’t make a take out double because of the doubleton heart. Some will overcall either 1 or 1. The sane ones will pass. South responds 1. North has a powerful looking playing hand but the most logical bid is now 3. South should follow-up with 3. North will probably just bid 3 NT. If East happens to lead the K, North cannot afford to duck twice. Then East could shift to diamonds and they can build up 5 tricks. So, after winning the first or second spade, declarer can go to dummy to finesse in clubs. Even though it loses, declarer makes his contract. Plus 400 should be an above average score for N-S.

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

North deals and passes. East will open 1. Even vulnerable, some Souths will bid either 2 or 3. West passes as does North (over 3). East will re-open with a double. When West now bids 3, East can cue bid 4. West will probably sign off in 4. He does have good hearts which he didn’t promise but not much else. If East makes one last slam try, West should cooperate. Any pairs reaching the slam will have an excellent board. Ironically, if South passes 1, that may become the final contract. If West does bid a forcing no trump, the slam would be easier to reach. I would expect 1 or 2 pairs to play 1.

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

The final contract should be in spades at most tables. West opens 1. North passes and East bids either a forcing no trump or 2 (if playing Standard American). West rebids either 2 or 2. In either case, West should get them to 4. Making 5 should prove difficult. It feels natural to ruff two hearts on the board and pitch a club on the A. Eventually, the spade spots should over-power North’s four trumps. I would expect + 420 for E-W should be slightly above average.
