1NT - 2 -

2 3 -

5 =
Bidding, not for children or the faint hearted!

West passes and, with 18 HCP, what should North bid? Normally, playing a 15-17 NT, North would open 1, but for the sake of this newsletter, suppose North decides to open 1NT. With only 5 HCP what should South call? Technically, South should pass, but with a 4-card heart suit South decides to see if they have a heart fit and so trots out Stayman (if it comes to the worst and North bids 2, South plans to pass and they will be in a 4-3 fit). When North shows no major South decides that they therefore should have a club fit and bids 3. North, with 4 clubs and an extra HCP, decides to raise to 5.
If West leads the A there wouldn’t be a story. The worst possible lead for South is a small spade. Declarer must win in Dummy, and play a heart to the K, and now must play a small diamond. West must take their A and should lead another spade. Declarer wins the K, and plays the K discarding the 6, and ruffs a spade and leads a heart to the A. Now a diamond is ruffed and finally a small club is led to the A and a small club to West’s K putting West on lead holding only spades and diamonds. Whatever suit West leads, the 9 can be safely discarded from dummy and Declarer will make all their contract. This play is known as a “Strip and throw in.”

Sandra and Ian
