4 Hearts making 5 is 450
3 NT making 4 is 430
4 Hearts making 4 is 420
3 NT making 3 is 400

That is the "points ladder"

Against North, the Jack of Clubs is a GREAT "TOP OF A RUN" lead.

THE COMMON GAME GAVE EXPERT ANALYSIS ON MANY OF THE EARLY HANDS. LOOK AT THE NLM & OPEN SECTIONS TO READ THEIR COMMENTS.

North and East should pass.
South opens 1 NT.

IF West overcalls 2 Clubs, ok by me but west should realize that he will be on lead usually when his RHO opens 1 NT.
North bids 2 Diamonds (isn't Jacoby Transfer still ON over an overcall?) YOU AND YOUR PARTNER SHOULD DECIDE THIS BEFORE YOUR NEXT GAME. I suggest they should still be "on" after an overcall, with a "Double" meaning "Mr RHO stole my bid"

Players bidding 2 Hearts and making it scored well!

IF South opens 1 Diamond, does West still overcall 1 NT? With a 5 card Spade Suit.

You and your partner should talk about this! AND come to an agreement.

Does South open 1 NT with 15 HCP BUT with a 5 card Major AND 2 Doubletons?????

I suggest NOT.

If South opens 1 Heart, does West bid? No 10-5-2!!! I would NOT overcall as West.
North bids 1 Spade? with only 4 (terrible) HCP and two Hearts?

East does NOT have a 10-5-2 (10 HCP, 5 of his suit, and 2 of the top 3 honors.) 2 out of those 3 is not too bad with 9 HCP. BUT you are VUL!

9 times 3 NT was declared! Those who failed to bid 3 NT got low matchopints.

North should open 1 NT and South should bid 3 NT with 10-15 HCP. You don't want to play a Minor do you???

Every NLM pair played in Diamonds.
Half the OPEN pairs played in Diamonds.
ALL of the Newcomers played Hearts in the E/W!

N/S have an 11 card Diamond fit while E/W have a 9 card Heart fit!

When one side has a "Golden Fit", the other side usually does also!

OK Dean, we got a tie for a "bottom" but bidding 4 Spades was not that bad.

Several pairs in the other sections made it! The defense didn't defend as well as out defenders!

Bridge is a dumb game anyway!
