All pass      
  1. limits South's hand
  2. game try
  3. balancing for the red suits

We start off this week with an auction that is a little hard to believe. West in 4th seat has a hard hand to bid. It takes an understanding of the auction and some courage (ok, maybe a lot of courage) for West to get into this auction. Bridge Winners can see the bidding footnotes on: http://thecommongame.com

Bidding: In the auction here (probably not the most popular auction) after North opens 1 and South raises 2, West holding 3 spades passes. Many in West seat will bid 3 or in an extreme (assuming partner is short in spades) make a Takeout Double: PASS or 3 is a judgment call but a Dbl as takeout at this point with a singleton club is just not good bridge. So assuming the PASS, after North bids 3 and South corrects to 3 the double as a "balancing double" works for the two red suits. Here is where the understanding of the auction helps, holding 3 spades partner must be short in spades and with West short in clubs ... well, it just looks right now to balance for the red suits, after all this is now a 32 high card points deck.

Made 4 — NS −590

Play: So good bidding (and a little luck) pays off ... East shows up with a hand that limits the opponents to 1 spade trick (K sitting behind A), 1 diamond trick (losing finesse to K), no heart tricks (play South for the Q) and 1 club trick thanks to West's singleton club.

Pass 7 All pass  
  1. 2/1 Game Forcing
  2. control
  3. Roman Keycard Minorwood
  4. 2 keycards + Q

After South opens this auction, this is should be an easy deal to bid slam. The only question is what denomination and how high (guess that is really two questions). Bridge Winners can see the bidding footnotes on: http://thecommongame.com

Bidding: South opens 1 and North bids 2 (2/1 Game Force ) creating a forcing auction, now there is no rush to stand on a table and shout. After 2 South could rebid 2NT but the rebid of 2 clearly limits South's hand. North's 3 shows a fit for diamonds. South's 3 is some kind of control, so North bids 4 as RKC Minorwood for diamonds. After 4NT which shows the A, the K and the Q North bids 7. Some partnerships might get to 7NT but 6NT is more reasonable and 7 should be a top, top, top board.

Play: There is not much to the play of this deal once it is discovered that clubs are J653 in West hand, finesse for the J.

Fred Ferguson Hand Analysis
West North East South
Pass Pass 1 Pass
1NT1 Pass 42 Pass
53 Pass 6 All pass
  1. 1NT Forcing (semi-forcing)
  2. splinter
  3. invitational asking uatlity of spades

Ok, I will be waiting for all the cards and letters telling me I am off my rocker on this auction. Bridge Winners can see the bidding footnotes on: http://thecommongame.com

Bidding: East has a great hand 7-0-3-3 with 16 high card points and just 4 losers . Some might open 4, but this hand is too strong, even playing Namyats this hand is too strong for a 4 opening. With just 4 losers some might open 2 and jump rebid 3 (which would be my second choice) but this auction will not get to slam. In the auction presented here East opens 1 and in response to 1NT Forcing (1NTF) makes a self-splinter of 4. Just so everybody is on the same page a rebid of 3 would have been a natural jump-shift and game forcing, sooooooo 4, like the jump Reverse , is a Splinter , a self-splinter (most likely showing a void in hearts). East is happy to play in 4 if that is all partner can respond. Now West with K5 and two working kings (K and K) bids 5 as invitational and holding KQ (2 of 3 top honors) off East goes to 6

Fred Ferguson Hand Analysis
West North East South
1 Pass 2 Pass
21 Pass 2 Pass
42 All pass    
  1. shape showing bid
  2. after 2 bid, this should show extra values

So here is a deal that is very close to slam. But East has a dilemma (a choice between equally undesirable alternatives) right off the bat. Bridge Winners can see the bidding footnotes on: http://thecommongame.com

Bidding: West opens 1 and East has a dilemma, respond 1NT Forcing with 12 high card points (too many points) or 2 as 2/1 showing 5 diamonds (but has only 4 diamonds) or bid 4 making with game going value sand a fit in spades, making sure the partnership reaches game. We can rule out 1 - 4 as this bid has a different meaning in most player agreements. Some might like 1 1NT, but 1 - 2 seems right. East knows there is no problem reaching the wrong contract (say in diamonds) as East will return to spades and rebid spades if required.

Opener's rebid of 2 then 4 should show some extra values, or otherwise, West might have just rebids spades right away. But East with minimal values passes 4.
