Made 3 — NS +150

This board will be won or lost on whether or not North South can reach game. I don't think that many tables will although I think South could make a case for accepting the invitation. North has no particular reason to open the hand, unless playing a limited opening bid style such as Precision .
South might accept because of the excellent intermediates in every suit. The ♠KQJ work quite well together and the 10 and even intermediates in the minors make accepting a reasonable proposition. It would be a more likely accept at IMP scoring rather than at matchpoint scoring.
On the likely club lead, declarer will win the third round and then lead a spade towards dummy. Declarer will play a heart back to the K to lead a second spade and then hope the spades break. Declarer will eventually need to take a heart finesse for his ninth trick although it may be presented to him after the cashing of the last club because the defense may be forced to give up a trick.

  1. Michael's Cuebid
4 by East
Down 1 — EW −50

Hold the West cards. would you enter the auction after the bidding 1 pass 3? I think you definitely should. You may not have 10 tricks in hand but there is also probably not a bid that is likely to get you to a better final contract. Some play that a cuebid in this situation is a four-loser hand or fewer and not exactly Michaels Cue Bid , but partner will still pick their better major without having long clubs. The contract goes down because of spades breaking 4-1 and the ♠J being in the four-card suit.
How should declarer play on the J lead. Declarer should ruff in dummy and draw two rounds of trump with the AK. Declarer should next try to cash the ♠AK before drawing th third round of trump. This is a KEY PLAY. Imagine North having a more heart a one fewer club. Declarer could trump the fourth round of spades in hand and then get back to dummy to draw the last trump. If you draw three rounds of trump before testing spades, you need to up your game!
It can't cost and can help and it is a common enough situation that you should be aware of it when it happens at the table.

Made 6 — NS +680

East may or may not overcall 1♠. It isn't my style to overcall on a poor suit AND a poor strength hand so I wouldn't. Since partner hasn't passed yet, I wouldn't be too aggressive. Bidding 4♠ as a sacrifice won't work out too well for you here because there is an easy +800 for North South.
The play is very interesting here. Assume the Q lead... will declarer win in dummy or win in hand? Declarer may want to win in hand to preserve communication, but declarer really wants to be in dummy to lead a heart for a heart finesse! Winning the K is the best line for 12 tricks.
The the heart finesse comes next and then the A and ♣K to make make 12 tricks. I'm not sure I would find the A play though. It isn't obvious to me but it may well be correct.

3NT by South
Made 6 — NS +690

This auction will be very common throughout the Common Game. South will choose to open 1NT in order to avoid a possibly awkward rebid is South opens 1♣. South might open 1♣, planning to reverse into 2 at his second opportunity. Both strategies have merit but I think players are so much more comfortable with opening 1NT auctions than they are with reverse auctions.
There are decent possibilities for all 13 tricks and I think it will be East who has to hold diamonds in order to stop declarer from making all the tricks. If West leads a low heart OR the J, it is East who must defend well. Assume declarer wins the J and then cashes clubs before spades. On the play of the last spade, dummy (lead the ♠7) will have only 3 remaining cards and declarer will discard the 5:
Dummy
♠7 K 3

Declarer
5 A6

West
A K10

West will have to hold the A and will therefore discard the diamond guard away. East can retain a diamond guard but only if he avoids ever discarding a diamond. Congrats to all Easts who find this excellent defense.

Kevin Wilson Hand Analysis

 PassPass1
Pass1♠Pass2♠
All pass
2♠ by North
Made 2 — NS +110

This hand highlights a modern style very well. Hold the South cards. What would you rebid when partner responds 1♠? I believe that the nest rebid is 2♠ and not 1NT. Since you have a small doubleton heart, rebidding 1NT seems like a worse description of your hand. If you had Qx or better, rebidding 1NT would make more sense. There is a rule when considering a three-card raise as opener. There should be more more descriptive bid available to you. You shouldn't have a six-card minor and you should have four spades while raising 1 to 2. Simply rebid 1♠ with that hand.
South's 1 opening bid will pretty much freeze West out of the bidding. Declarer at least five spades and a trick in every other suit. I think some will make 9 tricks.
