Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

North opens 1 and East overcalls 2 (no double with only two spades). South will bid 2 or 3 depending on their agreements. A bold West might raise clubs because of the four card support, but South may then bid 3, a reasonable save.

David Loeb Hand Analysis
WestNorthEastSouth
 123
All pass   

Lynn Berg typically provides analysis for 299ers on boards 1-18. Additionally, analysis for more advanced players is available for boards 1, 4-5, and 12.

The Bidding: If playing a strong notrump, North opens 1. East doesn't have the shape to Double for Takeout . Overcalling 2 seems best because it is constructive, lead directional, and obstructive. As Karen Walker discusses in her "Those Inconvenient Minors" article, 96% of the time a 1 opening will have 4+ diamonds. So the Law of Total Tricks suggests competing to 3. It is common to play a jump raise in competition as weak. With that agreement, South's jump to 3 will likely end the auction.

At tables where North-South play a weak or intermediate notrump, North opens 1NT. Defenses to a 1NT opening vary by partnership agreement. If playing DONT , East can bid 2 to clubs and a higher ranking suit. If playing Meckwell , East overcalls 2 to show clubs and an unspecified major. Playing Cappelletti or Hello, overcalling is more risky because the partnership cannot play in clubs at the 2-level. Over a Meckwell or DONT 2 overcall, it is common to play systems on. With that agreement a double of 2 is Stayman. South isn't eager to defend 2. Using Garbage Stayman as a takeout double is reasonable. West can redouble to asks East's second suit. Redoubling makes it easy for North-South to find a fit because it doesn't take up any room. Advancing to 3 risks missing a major suit fit, but seems best because of its obstructive value. A raise to 3 is likely to end the auction.

The Play in 3: South leads the Queen, top of an honor sequence. The defense wins to diamond tricks. Since continuing a 3rd round of diamonds isn't likely to be productive, it is best to treat South's play on the 2nd trick as Suit Preference . With nothing in spades, South plays a low diamond to show a preference for hearts. Declarer cannot avoid losing 2 heart tricks, but the fortuitous lie of the black suits allows declarer to score 9 tricks: 2 + 2 + 5.

The Play in 3: East doesn't want to lead away from an Ace or cash an unsupported Ace. So East leads a diamond. Declarer draws trump and has the tempo to double finesse against the QJ. When West is on lead, they need to lead a club through North to set 3. If playing Trump Suit Preference , East would lead the 2 at trick 1 to help West find the club shift.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

Not vulnerable, East might open 2. South would surely double and North will bid a major unless West advances the preempt with 3. If South leads the K--surely a reasonable choice--East will win the A, finesse and draw trump, and then lead a low heart toward the Jack. South takes her King, but then what? A defensive error will allow declarer to discard a losing spade on the now-established heart Jack.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

North does well to open 3 in third seat: partner is already a passed hand, and it becomes a lot harder for E-W to do anything. Little does North know that most makeable contracts on this hand are N-S. He just knows he has little in the way of defense. Oh, well...

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

West opens 1. East bids 3NT--13-15 points and two spades is a common agreement. It's implausible that East is aceless, so West may just bid 6NT. Knowing he has 12 top tricks, with the J lead declarer can put in the Q (not the usual second hand low) and take all 13 this time.

The Bidding: West could reasonably upgrade their semi-balanced 19 HCP hand and open 2NT, but that fails to convey the trick taking potential in a pointed suit contract. West's club stopper is non-positional. Opening 1 seems best. South shouldn't be eager to compete in diamonds with their semi-balanced hand. East's 2 response is a Two Over One Game Force . Many partnerships require a 5+ card suit for a 2 or 2 Two Over One Game Force . For them, a 2 response is a Game Force with clubs or a balanced Game Force. West patterns out with a 2 rebid. East shows their heart suit. West's 2NT rebid suggests 5-2-4-2 distribution. East offers 3NT as the final contract. West invites slam with a Quantitative 4NT bid. Since East offered 3NT as the final contract rather than make a slam move, East denied holding 16+ HCP. So West expects a slam to be available opposite 14-15 HCP. East, with 14 HCP and well fitting honors for partner's pointed suits, places the contract in 6NT.

At tables where West upgrades their hand and opens 2NT, East-West will arrive at 6NT much faster.

The Play: Declarer has 12 top winners. Since North can guard clubs, there is no Squeeze for a 13th trick.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

North opens 1NT. South will check for a spade fit and settle for 3NT. The usual heart lead will have declarer treading carefully: four spade tricks, four diamond tricks and two aces will give an overtrick without any dangerous finesses.

All pass   

The Bidding: If playing a 15-17 HCP 1NT range, North opens 1NT. Many expert partnerships play Low Information Puppet Stayman to avoid disclosing opener's shape when responder has game forcing values and one 4-card major. Here, using Low Information Puppet Stayman may provide the defense an opportunity to make a lead directing double of an artificial 3 rebid. Using regular Stayman seems best. North shows their heart suit. South's 3NT bid, showing a game forcing hand with 4 spades, ends the auction.

At tables where North-South play a 14-16 HCP range, or where North uprades their hand, North opens 1. After East responds 1, North jumps to 2NT. Continuations vary by partnership agreement. Many play New Minor Forcing . Wolff Sign Off and transfers are superior. Wolff Signoffs are a memory load. Transfers are easy. Whatever the method, South, with 13 Support Points for diamonds, uses their method to show a diamond fit. When North cue bids to show they like diamonds, South drives to the diamond slam.

The Play in 3NT: On the auction, a major suit lead isn't attractive. So East is likely to lead a club. When dummy tables, it is easy for the defense to find the heart shift to hold declarer to 10 tricks.

The Play in 6: With diamonds breaking 3-2, declarer has 10 winners. 2 heart ruffs brings declarer to 12 tricks.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

South opens 1, to West's chagrin. Many Norths will bid 1NT, but even if North bids 2 South now bids 2. What now? North might try 2NT, but South is likely to bid 3 and that will likely end the auction. West ha no appealing lead, but may try a low heart, which at least isn't costly. The nasty break will be a sad disappointment to declarer.

South opens 2NT. North will transfer, bid 3NT, and be pleased that partner converts to 4. Any South who "masterminds" and leaves it in 3NT deserves the coming bad board. Diamond ruffs will give declarer entries to take the two essential spade finesses. Thank goodness trumps are
3-2.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

East opens 1. Most will end up in spades, with what today is a common, aggravation of a 5-0 trump break. If South leads a club, declarer should play second hand low--and will be rewarded. He banks on the idea that it's unlikely South has led away from an Ace against a suit contract.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

Three passes to West, and three quick tricks mean West opens 1. East bids 1 and West, with some natural trepidation has to decide which he hates more: 1NT with no heart stopper or 2 on a weak suit. I'd bid 1NT. It's a lucky hand: diamonds are 3-3 and two significant kings are well placed.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

After three passes, North opens 2NT. South has a decision to make: transfer in spades or use Stayman and then what if partner denies a major? All roads this time lead to 3NT. East has no good lead, but a low club is the likely choice. Even missing three Kings, most should score 11 tricks.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

South opens 1NT, which buys the hand. Say West leads the 7: the Rule of 11 tells declarer to play low. Then if West gets in again, he's really strapped for a lead. Spades are a worry. Lead a low spade toward the J. If West screws up, he'll play the Q and be punished when East has to play the Ace. Second hand low!

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

West opens 1. North should just bid 1; with only two diamonds, double is dangerous. Actually, this time, South just might bid 2--but whoever acts, North will bid hearts next and South will suddenly like her hand a whole lot. If South does pass, West is likely to reopen with a double, giving North the chance to bid again.

David Loeb Hand Analysis
WestNorthEastSouth
11Pass2
Pass2All pass 

The Play in Hearts: The auction suggests declarer will be ruffing spades. A trump lead to reduce ruffing declarer's ruffing power is reasonable. The 10 lead makes it easy for declarer to hold heart losers to 1. With diamonds breaking 3-3, declarer can score 10 tricks: 1 + 1 ruff + 3 + 4 + 1.

The Play in 1X by North: A club lead is a disaster for the defense. East want to shorten their spade holding to avoid being end played. So a heart lead seems best. On any lead other than a club, declarer has 3 quick winners in the side suits plus the Ace. Declarer can navigate a diamond ruff and a club ruff to arrive at 6 tricks.

The Play in 2 by East: If East is declaring 2, they can escape for down 1 by finessing against North for the Queen and South for the Jack. This is quite a profitable sacrifice over a North-South 2 contract.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

Rule of 20 allows East to open 1. South bids 1NT, and West bids 2. If instead West doubles (Penalty), North will just transfer to hearts, but over 2 North is unlikely to be bold enough to want to bid. The spade spots make this hand play like a dream, but who will know?

North opens 1. When South bids 1, North can revalue to 16 playing points and jump to 3, an invitation South will be happy to accept. When trumps split, this hand is pretty easy. All those lovely diamond tricks--yum.

North may open a light 1. East will bid 1 and South will surely then use a Negative Double . No matter: West has a lovely preemptive raise to 3 to buy the hand against vulnerable opponents.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

West opens 1. which East will raise whether or not North overcalls. Will they get to game? It's not easy for West to visualize all that has to go right: Spade K, trump split, Club honors all have to cooperate. Who will be that optimistic?

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

North may open an aggressive 3. If she does, she shouldn't be surprised if South goes for the diamond slam--with only the trump Ace to lose. Assuming East leads the K, declarer has a lot to do before drawing trump: two rounds of spades to eliminate the club loser, and then A, K and a ruff on the table. Now sit back and enjoy the slam.

Lynn Berg Hand Analysis (For 299ers)

South opens 1 (Rule of 20). North bids 1 and South 2. North corrects to 2 or bids 2NT depending on his style, but South may not sit for NT with this distributional hand, bidding clubs again. The hideous minor suit breaks will doom an otherwise appealing contract.
