  1. weak jump overcall
  2. 3 forces game of 3NT or 4
  3. lead directional and penalty oriented
  4. most likely sacrifice

The game of bridge is full of controversy. This week starts off with a deal full of controversies. North's hand does not meet any of the variances for the Rule of 20 (Bergen), Suggestion of 22 (Helms), or the Whidden method (I advocate) with honors in the long suits. But over the last 15 years what use to be a standard is no longer a standard, in fact, Larry Cohen says "I think the Rule of 20, is a good guideline, especially for newer players. It gives an immediate (and easy) ballpark estimate of what is or isn't an opening bid. However, it is just general advice." NOT that I am ADVOCATING it, but I suspect a number of players will open 1 with North's hand (first controversy).

Bidding:
If North opens the bidding 1 , East should overcall 2 as a weak jump overcall (basically equivalent to an opening Weak Two-Bid ). South with 12 support points and 8 losers can bid 3 (invitational) or 3 fit showing cuebid (game forcing) or bid 4 (Law type bid). So with opening hand values in support of hearts, South bids 3 (second controversy).

After 3 West gets into the action of doubling 3, as both lead directional and penalty oriented, and subsequently taking a sacrifice of 4. After having pushed E/W into a makeable game probably the most sane bid in this auction is South's bid of 5. Maybe the third (or is it the fourth) controversy is should 5 be doubled?

Ok, lets roll the bidding back to opening bid, if North does not opening the bidding, will E/W get to game (fifth controversy). I don't think they will, I think the bidding will go something like 2 - 2NT | 3 - All Pass.

Play: Clearly 5 will go down, double dummy says 5 is down 3, but double dummy cheats and looks at all hands. In the version here 5 is down 1.

This deal may not be as controversial as others, but ...

Bidding: South opens the bidding 1, North responds 1, East overcalls 1 (not 2), South with 17 high card points and 5 losers jump rebids 3 ... what will West do? NOT Vulnerable most with 5 spades and shortness in hearts would compete to 4, but what about Vulnerable? With equal vulnerability red vs. red it still might be safe to compete to 4, but with unfavorable vulnerability red vs. white West should just pass. It is too great a risk to jump into the auction based on a LAW of Total Tricks (LoTT) bid.

Play: With two aces there is no reason for East to panic (or do something silly), thus, East makes an opening lead of the 10. But as long as East does not cash the A first, East should be able to win both the black aces A and A.

  1. Jacoby 2NT
  2. shortness
  3. slow shows extra values
  4. help suit slam try
  5. Roman Keycard Blackwood
  6. two keycards w/o the Q

So continuing the theme for this week, deals with controversies, should E/W get to 6 on this deal.?

Bidding: After East opens the bidding with 1, West has several options. Option 1 is for West to make a Two Over One Game Force bid of 2, in which case East will not be encouraged even when West would bid 3 showing spade support and maximum values. So the bidding might go 1 - 2 | 2 - 3 | 4 - All Pass. Option 2 is for West to bid 4 as a Splinter in which case the bidding will go something like 1 - 4 | 4 - All Pass.

Option 3 is for West to make Jacoby 2NT response showing 4-card support in spades and a full opening hand. East will rebid 3 as shortness with extra values, West will bid 3 confirming spades with extra values and now it should be easy to get to slam. East bids 4 as a help suit slam try, West bids 4NT as RKC and holding 4 keycards and the queen of trump, West bids 6.

So why does the Jacoby 2NT sequence work, in part because options 1 & 2 yield captaincy to East and East is not encouraged in the auction, while the Jacoby 2NT response retains captaincy of the auction and West is encouraged by East first rebid of shortness in diamonds.

Play: The play of this deal is not difficult, giving up a heart and ruffing 3 hearts before pulling trump or if the opponents lead trump (spades), ruffing out diamonds to set up a fifth diamond for a heart pitch.

All pass   
  1. conventional or natural
  2. 3 spades
  3. slam try
  4. cuebid
  5. RKC Blackwood (spades)
  6. 1 or 4 keycards

The controversy in this deal is responder's bid of 3.

Bidding: North open's the bidding 1, South responds 1 and East with minimal values of 12 high card points , 7 losers and 6 diamonds rebids 2. South with 15 hcp and 5 losers (Reverse values) bids 3, so what is 3. Depending on partnership agreements 3 could be either conventional or natural. If conventional, 3 would be a version of New Minor Forcing asking opener to further define his hand. If natural, 3 would be what is technically called a High Reverse or some might call it a responder's reverse. In either case 3 as conventional or 3 as a reverse is forcing, asking opener to bid again and promising a third bid by responder.

Opener's (North) bid of 3 promises 3 spades. South's bid of 4 has to be some sort of slam try. North bids 4 as a cuebid. South now goes into a keycard auction for spades finding the partnership has 4 keycards and the Q, bids 6.

Pass4All pass 
  1. 1NT Forcing
  2. typically 6-card suit

For those who play 2/1 Game Forcing and/or 1NT Forcing, there shouldn't be a lot of bidding controversy in this deal.

Bidding: North opens 1 (lets assume East passes) and South without the values to make a game forcing response of 2, bids 1NT Forcing asking partner to further define his hand. (for more discussion on 1NT Forcing see Bd 18) North rebids 2. South had originally planned to make a 1NTF bid and rebid hearts, but knowing there is a most probably an 8-card fit in spades raises to 3. North with 18 support points for spades accepts to 4.

If there is any controversy in this auction, it is whether East would insert a 2 overcall over 1. Common bridge standards says no with only 9 high card points and not the best heart suit. Give East in addition to the holding here say the A or the K and take away the 3 and the case could easily be made for a 2-level 2 overcall.

Made 4 — NS +620

Play: If there is any real controversy in this deal, it is East's opening lead. East cannot lead a spade away from K9. But maybe the worst lead would be the A.

In the auction here East can lead a small heart, so 4th best would be the 4 or East can lead the 7. In either case declarer (North), can make the 4 contract by trumping two diamond losers in dummy.

  1. 1NT Forcing
  2. could be temporizing
  3. content with opener's rebid of 2
  4. not wishing to compete to 3
  5. reopening double
  6. sits for double of 2

I this deal. Bridge is a partnership game and should be played as a partnership. So lets see what the controversy is on this deal.

Bidding: East opens the bidding 1 and West makes a 1NT Forcing bid. The forcing bid of 1NT is artificial: 1) asking opener to further define his hand and 2) depending on opener's rebid responder will further define his hand (i.e., responder could have a number of hands to describe depending on opener's rebid). So after 1 - 1NT Forcing | 2 could be temporizing, but typically shows a better minor ( or ). After East rebid of 2, West passes defining his hand as minimal 6-9 high card points and accepting clubs as trump as the best of alternatives.

South balances in with 2 and West passes again, not interested to compete to 3. East with 16 support points for clubs or spades and a singleton heart reopens the bidding with a balancing double of 2. AND West now sits for double of 2. So West after making a 1NTF bids sits for 2, passes declining to compete to 2 and the passes a second time will to sit for the double of 2. How many would/could pass that many times staying out of the auction?

Play: This deal could be played out a number of ways. After the opening lead of the spade East could return a spade, East could return a club or a diamond, but chooses to return a trump. Partner West sat for 2x and thus maybe he needs to lead trump to protect honors in spades and the minors. I DONT think it makes a difference trading off tricks in one suit for another.
