Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

North deals and passes. East should open 1 and West will respond 2 and East will rebid 2. Playing 2/1. West might bid 3. East should sign off in 4 and that should end the auction. Whatever South leads, East must win it draw trumps and give up a club. He will then be able to pitch one loser on the long club and make a normal +650. If East decides to cue bid 4♣ over 3, they will likely get too high and have no real play for 6. The no trump “hogs” will get what they deserve -- a big zero!

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

With a combined 19 high card points, E-W are cold for slam in two suits. However, they are very unlikely to bid it unless pushed by N-S . South deals and will probably pass. West will open 1 and North will overcall 1♠. East could pass but will probably make a Negative Double . South will probably just raise to 2♠. West has a very appealing hand with his partner showing hearts, he will likely jump to 4 . A non vulnerable North will take the push to 4 ♠. I would expect East to bid 5 which might end the auction. It will be impossible for West to envision his partner with 6 trumps, the queen of diamonds and a control in clubs. If E-W bid a slam, N-S have a good sacrifice in 7♣. This may be hard to find since, somehow, the 11-card club fit has never been found.

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

Again, North-South are cold for slam in two suits. This time, their combined points total 22. Distribution is everything. After South passes, most Wests will open 2. North should double. No telling what East will do. He might take a chance on 4. This will freeze South out and North might content himself with 4♠. He will be pleasantly surprised if he doubles again and partner responds 5. He certainly has enough to bid 6. A very adventuresome North might bid 5NT to see if his partner can bid six diamonds. This should show the K (grand slam force). If South doesn’t have the king, he bids 6♣. Of course, your partnership should have a firm agreement on the responses or you shouldn’t roll it out. Those North-Souths who bid slam in either spades or diamonds should receive a great score.

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

With perfect play. N-S can make 4 or 3NT. ! would expect the most common auction will be
1NT - P - P - P. Guessing the heart position and leading twice toward the K Q♠ will yield 9 tricks -- 3 hearts, 2 spades, 2 clubs and 2 diamonds. Those playing weak NT will have to best chance to get to hearts. Probably 2 making 3 or 4. This should be a good board for N-S. With a combined 23 points, I would not expect anyone to bid and make game.

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

The normal auction seems to be: P - 1♣ - 1 - P, 1♠ - P - 3NT. With the K lead and continuation. the limit of the hand is 9 Tricks. With a spade lead from South from South East must win the first spade and lead a diamond. Assuming North ducks and East puts up the king, he will have potential entry problems, especially if South has ducked with A-J-X. All is well though with the diamonds splitting 2-2 and plus 600 should be a fairly normal result.

Bill Wisdom Hand Analysis

East deals and passes ,South bids 1♠. West passes and North has 2 or 3 options: 2, 2NT or 4 (splinter). East MIGHT enter the auction with a Michaels Cue Bid Cue Bid, but this is unlikely. At some point, Either N or S will bid key card. Finding out they are missing one should lead to 6♠. There should be NO 7♠ bidders but bridge is a funny game!
