Pass2TransferPass2
All pass

Some Souths will start with a double while others will overcall 1NT. Regardless, South will declarer in hearts when her partner transfers her into that strain. The North hand may prove useless in notrump. Without East's bid West would lead a diamond against the notrump contract and the defense will score four clubs and two red aces. On the spade lead South will come to seven tricks as she will win one spade and immediately play on clubs. This will give her four clubs and two red aces fulfilling the contract.

However North is not confident that her partner will benefit with the dummy she will put down and will transfer South into hearts. West will lead a spade against the heart contract and South will struggle valiantly before going down.

East will win her ♠A and shift to a club, ruffing the second round. She will exit a spade which declarer will win. The best South can do now is to draw trump as her opponents will be scoring heart tricks, either directly or by ruffing clubs and diamonds. (West of course will ruff a diamond high.) In the end South will not be happy that she'd picked up such a beautiful hand and been unable to do much with it.

NS are full value to be in their notrump game. However the bridge gods are not with them so far this evening and North will go down in her notrump game. On the above auction East will lead a club establishing three tricks for the defense.

Declarer will eventually win her ♣A and play a diamond. The defense will cash the clubs they have coming to them and East will exit (a heart or a spade.) Declarer will win and cash her diamonds.

Eventually she must decide whether to play a spade, settling for down one or play for a 3 - 3 heart split allowing her to make her contract. At matchpoints the correct play is to try make the contract so we expect most Norths to cash hearts to learn of the unfavorable split.

Alas, now when she plays a spade West will win and cash her good heart to set the contract two tricks.

NS will get to their notrump game only to go down if it's played by South. At some tables South will open 1♠ in which case North will be declarer in the notrump contract. East will lead a diamond and have the tempo to dislodge the ♠A to make her contract.

However on the above auction, West will lead a club. Declarer will holdup the ♣A as long as possible however she needs the spade suit to come to nine tricks. She she plays a spade West will take her ace and cash good clubs setting the contract.

North will rebid her hearts and South with a singleton ace should bid the heart game. Although she has only one heart it is a excellent one.

Declarer's plan is to unblock the A, come to her hand with a diamond to draw trump. She will play a diamond to dummy to ruff a diamond (high if necessary) establishing the suit and return to dummy with the ♣A.

The defense is powerless to attack her entry to dummy. If West leads a club declarer can play the queen from her hand sandwiching East's ♣K, promoting the jack in dummy as a later entry.

At the conclusion of play North will lose one spade and one heart.

East will ave a comfortable time on her notrump game. South will lead a club. If she leads a low club declarer will have three club tricks.

The diamonds sit favorably for declarer and will produce five tricks. interestingly the spade suit can provide four winners. If East calls for a spade from dummy South may take her king however East will have four tricks in the suit.

Should the defense attack hearts they will be able to establish North's hearts however North has no entry.

We expect East to make more than one overtrick at the table. South will score the ♠K and is not likely to shift to a heart. Any other play will allow East the tempo to take 11 tricks.

South will inquire about a four card suit in the North hand and then invite the notrump game. North will of course accept the invitation.

It appears that a spade lead will scuttle the contract as West can win her ace and return the suit. When she gets in with a heart or a diamond she can clear spades and she still has an entry to her hand to cash good spades.

However at the table this may not happen. Declarer can cash her clubs putting pressure on West who must make four discards. If she wants to keep her spades she must discard hearts and diamond. If she discards two diamonds declarer can cash her top diamonds and exit a diamond establishing her fourth diamond as a winner.

There is much to be said for cashing side suits and on this board it will allow declarer to make her contract if she watches West's discards carefully.

West will lead a diamond capturing East's J. She will immediately play a diamond toward dummy's 10 assuring that she will win three diamond tricks.

Prior to running her club suit we expect South to lead a heart toward dummy. She will of course lose the trick to East who will return a spade. At this point declarer can cash some winners taking her good clubs, diamonds and spade(s) finally coming to the play of her hearts. As she does not have the spots to try a second heart finesse she will cash the A dropping the queen from the West hand. Her 10 is now high and her eleventh trick.

This board will produce some unusual results in that at many tables EW will be in 3NT. Some will make overtricks while most will go down.

If East opens an offshape 1NT she will declare in 3NT and South's opening lead may be a spade, her longest suit. In that case East will win three spades and she will take her diamond and club tricks to get to 11 winners.

If South leads a heart she must lead a high heart else she will block the suit and te defense will only score four tricks.

Matchpoints is a peculiar game in that 3NT often scores better than five of a minor. Consequently most EW pairs will strive to avoid the club game. On this layout if West is declarer, which we expect to happen most frequently, North will lead a heart. South will take her winning high hearts and continue the suit. The defense will win the first five tricks.

Looking at all four hands we see that perfect defense is to cash two diamonds switch to a club.

On any other defensive line declarer can prevail and win an overtrick.

If given the time declarer can win 11 tricks. She can win eight spades, one heart and three clubs.

At the table we expect most Souths to lead a heart.

South must temporize and bod diamond prior to supporting spades. She will at her second turn to bid jump to the spade game. While she has an excellent supporting hand there is no reason for her to consider bidding a slam on this board.

Neither does North have any reason to consider a slam. She holds a singleton diamond, her partner's suit. As a rule, shortness is partner's suit is not an asset.

All roads lead to 12 tricks on this board.

East will lead the ♣K which declarer will win. She can unblock the Q, cash the A and ruff a heart to cash two top diamonds in dummy discarding her losing clubs. She can now dislodge the ♠A, her only losing trick.

West will invite the notrump game and East will accept. She has 16 HCPs and a five card suit.

Declarer's plan is to win one heart and two clubs to go along with her one spade and five diamonds.

South will lead a spade. Declarer must proceed carefully. The opening lead suggests that the spade honors are split. If South lead from a four card suit then North holds a doubleton honor. So declarer should play low from dummy. winning her ace. When spades a played a second time declarer should play low from both hands knowing that North will be forced to win her honor. Declarer is now in a position to score the ♠J.

Upon winning the opening lead East should dislodge the ♣A. This will give her two additional tricks. If the defense continues spades she can play as suggested above. If the defense switches to a heart declarer will win a heart trick and make her contract.
