2019 Australia-Wide Open Pairs
Your Personal Results Booklet
Welcome to your personal results analysis booklet for the 2019 Australia-Wide Open Pairs. (If you log into this booklet with your name, the statistics will be personalised for your results.)
You will have already received your first booklet on the day of the event -- an instructional booklet with advice on how to bid and play the hands. This is your second booklet, looking at the actual results from around Australia.
Over 100 clubs (all except Bridgetown) have submitted their travelling scoreslips, to be scored across the field. With nearly 800 tables submitted for each board, and more than 23000 boards played overall, this is your chance to directly compare your results with players from all over the country, board by board.
For each board we have displayed a full national travelling scoreslip, plus a summary of the most common contracts and results, with some additional comments about the final results. The summary also shows your own result, and also the results of one of the top ranked pairs. This way you can see exactly what you needed to do if you wanted to win the event!
Note: this feature is only available if you selected your name on the previous page.
This booklet also contains the list of the top overall 436 pairs in the event, on pages 38-41, and the top 100 Novice pairs (under-100 MP) are on page 42.
The top five pairs are:
1. Judi Knighton & Edith Flanagan Monaro
2. Susan Greenwood & Mervyn Harris Bridge @ the Bay
3. Norma Pears & Vince Menezes Maylands
4. Peter Johnman & Stewart Duxbury Central Coast
5. Julia Johnson & Rod Barnett Tasmania
Best under-100: Bernadette Mossman & Catherine Wood Cowra
QLD: Paul Kemp & Stuart Craig Maleny
SA/NT: Denise McEwan & Phillip Hassall Alice Springs
Prizes will all be listed in this document, including a separate prize list for players with under 100 MP. To qualify on the under-100 list, your club must have provided a valid results file with your ABF number. In all cases, winners need to contact us at mail@australianbridge.com to give us your postal address. (If you see a friend's name in a prize notice, be sure to let them know and congratulate them).
I hope you enjoyed the event and find this booklet interesting and informative.

Comments:
Our first board is entirely in the hands of the East player. After winning the ace of trumps at trick two, he has one chance to cash the images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes)A. If he cashes it, he scores -450 and 77%; if not, he scores -480 and 36%.
The principle here is "Active" vs "Passive" defence. As soon as you see dummy (and even earlier if possible) you need to decide whether to Actively grab all your tricks, or Passively avoid doing anything to help declarer. If dummy has a long threatening suit, as here, you need to be Active.
Some of you might have tried to cash the images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)K instead of the images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes)A. This is misguided; you can always decide whether to cash the images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)K later, if partner plays a discouraging signal on the images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes)A.

Comments:
The popular contract here was 3images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes), presumably bid as a sacrifice over 3images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes). This was a good decision, with 3images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes) scoring 130 and 3images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) costing only 100 (as long as it isn't doubled).
Playing in 3images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes), North should be able to take three spade tricks and three diamonds fairly easily, and the images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)A makes seven. The 8th trick will most likely come from a club ruff, but running the images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)Q will also work. The images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)Q will lose to West's images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)K, but then dummy's images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)J will be set up. Nine tricks is not a realistic target, but eight will guarantee an average score (as opposed to the 27% you would have had defending 3images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes)).

Comments:
The auction to 2images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) is fairly straightforward. I have met players who believe that North needs five spades to bid 1images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) in a competitive auction, but this is not true -- nor is it a "question of system". If you don't show your spades, you will never find a spade fit. A negative double is no substitute, as that would promise hearts as well as spades. 1images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) is North's correct and only choice here.
2images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) should lose three diamonds and the images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes)K, so you can only afford one heart loser. At first glance this looks like a standard ace-queen guess, but actually it's not a guess. Playing a heart to the king, hoping for the ace onside, will not help you -- you'd still have to lose the images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)A and images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)Q. The right play is to run the images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)J, hoping the images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)Q is onside.

Comments:
Lazer's decision to bid 4images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes), above, was extremely aggressive, and 2images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) is the popular spot today. This is good, as there were more people making nine than making ten. Ten tricks in 2images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes), if you can manage it, is a great result.
At many tables East bid 1NT and West passed. You should show a five-card major when partner opens/overcalls 1NT, and with a weak hand this is even more important. If East has a doubleton heart, the West hand will be worthless in 1NT; in 2images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes), you're sure to take a few heart tricks. If East has heart support, so much the better!
Book prizes for 4images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) go to Diana Khursandi and Tim Sayer of Caboolture and Teresa Downing and Thomas Graham of Warwick.

Comments:
The given auction, where North limits his hand with a 1NT rebid, is a smart way to bid. The sooner you describe your hand within a tight limit, the easier it will be for partner to choose the right contract. At many tables North will bid 2images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes) rather than 1NT, which is perfectly valid, but not particularly helpful. South will rebid 2NT (about 10-12) and North has to bid 3NT knowing there might be 26 HCP or there might be only 24.
As it happens, all the pips are pulling their weight, and the 24-point 3NT is a lucky make. Four heart tricks, plus the images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)A images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes)A images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)AK, leave you needing just one more trick. If the defenders attack clubs or diamonds, the images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes)10 or images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)8 will come good; otherwise, you'll have time to set up a spade.

Comments:
The advice from Board 4, saying that you should show your five-card major when partner opens 1NT, has backfired here. 1NT actually scores better than 2images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes), thanks to all the defensive ruffs available in 2images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes). The advice was sound, but no strategy is guaranteed to work on every deal. In any case, 2images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) is still an above average result, if not quite as good as 1NT, and even better if the defenders don't find their ruffs.
There were a surprising number of pairs in 2NT. If you were one of those, then this will be a good hand for partnership discussion. No harm done, as 2NT makes easily on this occasion.
Book prizes for beating 2images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) go to Kelela Allen and Susan Capp of Glenbrook and Sue Napier and Margaret Smart of Bendigo. Prize for a unique top goes to Robyn and Mike Smith of Glenbrook for 3images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)x.

Comments:
3images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes) was the popular spot, which seems obvious; East won't sell out to anything less, and NS have no reason to bid more. The big swing on the board came from whether or not you made the overtrick.
To make ten, you need to lead twice towards the images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)KQ. You'll need two entries to dummy, and these are the images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)8 and images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes)A. If you waste your images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)8, you'll lose two spade tricks and have to settle for 28%.
Some pairs got too high in diamonds. This may have been after a raise from West (a risky move with a flat hand and just an ace) or it might have been unilateral aggression from East.
Book prizes for 3NT go to Jonathan Free and Mimi Packer of Nedlands and Nadeane McCaffrey and Jan Archer of Esperance.

NS winners' result: 5NT-S, NS460 (NS 86%)

Comments:
This is one of the toughest hands, with some people making seven tricks and some making twelve. The common result was 11, with three clubs, images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)A, images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)AK, and five spades. It seems natural to attack your strongest suit, and the spades are sitting so well that it doesn't even matter how you play the suit.
A few pairs made 12, which can be done in two ways. On the run of the spades, West might throw his hearts away, so South's hearts are good. Alternatively, if West keeps the hearts, you can throw him in to make him lead a diamond into the images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)AQ. In either case, East can ruin this plan by playing diamond after winning the images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)Q.

Suggested result: 5images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)-W, EW600
Winners' result: Not played

Comments:
I found this to be the most interesting deal of the set, with nearly every pair taking just 11 tricks in 5images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes) (or 3images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes), 4images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes) or 6images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)).
There are actually 12 tricks: six diamonds, four hearts (after finessing the images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)10), the images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes)A, and a club ruff (after throwing all of dummy's clubs on the images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)AKQ). The heart finesse is perfectly safe. Even if it loses, you'll still be able to throw the clubs on the images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)AKQ and ruff a club for 11 tricks.
The only danger will come from a club lead. After a club lead, finessing the images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)10 is too dangerous, as North would be able to cash a club if the finesse lost. However, almost no one led a club, so the heart finesse was safe for most people.

Suggested result: 3images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)-S, NS170
Winners' result: Not played

Comments:
EW had a difficult time on this deal, after some preemptive spade bidding from NS. East isn't really strong enough to introduce hearts, and is in no position to support clubs.
Nearly half of the pairs in 3images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) or 4images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) made only nine tricks, and I assume this is because they lost a diamond trick. The correct play is to cash the images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)A and images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)K, and then finesse the images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)9 after you see West show out. There are hands where it would be right to cash the images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)Q first (whenever East has a singleton) but in practice this would only ever work if you could see all the cards.
With EW having +650 available in 5images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes), you would think that even going off in 4images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) would be a good result for NS, but it wasn't.

Suggested result: 1NT-W, NS50
Winners' result: Not played

Comments:
This is one of several hands in the set that illustrate "the first pair to 1NT wins". Where EW played in 1NT, they usually went one off for a 50% score, but many of them were allowed to make 1NT for an 83% score. Where NS played in 1NT, they usually made it for a 70% score (or, more often, 91% for making an overtrick). Well done to any of the NS pairs who did reach 1NT -- I should have made this one of the prize deals.
The second most popular spot was 2images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) by EW, but I haven't been able to work out how that happened.
Book prize for a unique top goes to Claire James and John Elliott of Denmark for 1images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)x.

Comments:
In the souvenir booklet, I promised I'd discuss the defence to 4images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes), as a top pair misdefended at the table. There are many different signalling methods that you can agree with your partner, and here are two options:
Many people play that if South leads an ace and dummy has a singleton, North should follow with a "suit preference" card. That is, a low card asks for a low suit (here, images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)4 asks for a club) and a high card asks for a high suit (images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)10 for a diamond).
Alternatively, if you are locked into playing count or attitude at trick one, then North should give suit preference on the 2nd heart. One way or another, North must get a chance to show the club values.

NS winners' result: 3images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)-E, NS200 (NS 89%)

Comments:
Many NS pairs bought this hand in 3images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes), which should be a great score as EW could have made 3images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) or 3images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes). Even going off in 4images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes) should have been a decent score. However, there were very few EW pairs scoring 140 -- it's very tough to guess to bid three-over-three without a nine-card fit.
In reality, even making 3images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes) wasn't quite worth an average, as many pairs managed an overtrick in that contract. This was most likely done with six clubs, the images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)AQ and images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)A, and a heart ruff. EW can prevent this by leading spades until South runs out of trumps, or by threatening to get a diamond ruff (which forces South to draw trumps).

Suggested result: 1NTx-S, EW100
NS winners' result: 1NT-S, NS90 (NS 78%)

Comments:
1NT by South was the popular spot, and most Wests did not double, illustrating that even when 1NT is in trouble it might still work out ok. Many South's made 1NT (77%) and even one off was worth 43%. The lone EW pair who doubled and defended perfectly scored 98%, and is the only pair in the prize draw at the time of writing.
Unfortunately for West, the worst lead is a diamond (partner's suit). I have a theory on this, which is not widely accepted: if partner opens a minor (which could be a three-card suit) and RHO overcalls 1NT, you should assume that RHO has the suit amply stopped. If partner opens a major, of course, showing five, then you must lead it.
Book prizes for 1NTx go to Tim Nelson and Elizabeth Frewin of Armidale and Barbara Kent and Murray Perrin of Toowong.

Comments:
Quite a few EW pairs found the excellent 5images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes) save over 4images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes), but it was usually fruitless -- NS just bid on to 5images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) with no damage done. Well done to the two pairs who managed to sacrifice again in 6images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes) for a 69% score (or 85+% if not doubled).
A few of the pairs in 5images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes) actually did even better, making 11 tricks for the big 99% score (100% if doubled). To beat 5images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes), NS have to play a heart at trick one or trick two, otherwise there is a risk that the heart trick will run away.

Comments:
The popular spot was 3images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes), which is good bidding. 2images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) would be giving up on game too easily, while 4images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) would be a bit of an overbid.
I described the line of play to make 4images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) in the souvenir booklet (draw only two rounds of trumps, losing a trump, a diamond and a spade). If you draw three trumps, you avoid a trump loser, but you don't get as many ruffs, and you also create entry problems that may end up costing you a club trick.

Comments:
In standard methods, when North opens 1NT and East overcalls, a three-level bid from South is forcing. You are free to make your own agreements, of course, but if you haven't discussed it, you probably should assume that partner meant it as forcing. Many Souths got dropped in 3images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes), which is not a huge surprise.
In the booklet I said that you'd need ten tricks in 3NT for a good score, and most pairs did in fact get the ten tricks. As a result, +400 was only worth 44% for NS -- not much better than 3images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)!

Comments:
Making 420 for 12 tricks in 5images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes) was worth 61% to EW, which is an excellent Matchpoint score for a five-minor contract, but it actually deserved better. Most pairs in 3NT were allowed to make ten tricks for 430 (88%) with each one of them stealing a matchpoint from the 5images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes) bidders. This was also hard luck for the 3NT bidders, who were awarded either 31% or 88% according to how well their opponents defended.
The slam is not impossible to bid if you play splinter raises. After 1images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)-2images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes), East can show short hearts and good club support, and West will know there is a chance for slam.

Comments:
The making contract on this board is 4images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) by EW, but most tables had NS playing in a spade contract. This is how it should be, as 4images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)x is a great sacrifice against 4images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes), but in fact only five pairs managed the par result of -300. Many of the NS pairs came away with a plus score, having bought the hand in 2images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) or 3images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes), and many more were allowed to play 4images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) undoubled.
It's fascinating to see how a large group of sub-optimal scores affects the Matchpoint scoresheet, cramming all the "normal" scores together. With so many EW pairs scoring +100 or -140, the critical decision between 300 and 620 became largely irrelevant. NS scored 10% for -620, yet only 13% for the excellent -300 sacrifice.

Comments:
The popular spot here was 3NT by EW, despite the fact that it is NS who can make game! The auction probably began with a 3images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes) bid from West, and East was unwilling to pass with 14 HCP. It can be difficult to judge how to respond to a preemptive opening, but a good start is to simply try to find a hand for partner that will justify your bid. If you want to make 3NT, you'll need the 3images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes) bidder to have a partial heart stopper and the images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes)A (unlikely) and even that doesn't guarantee nine tricks.

Comments:
The common spot was 4images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes). Does that mean everyone was overcalling 1images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) with the four-card suit? Probably not, although I don't see another obvious route to 4images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes).
In the souvenir booklet, I implied that Mike Lawrence, the best-known proponent of four-card overcalls, might have approved of East's 1images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) bid. I'm glad I have a chance to correct that mistaken impression here: Mike would never overcall 1images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) with this hand. Mike always requires 12 working HCP for a four-card overcall. Replace the images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)10 with images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)J, and the questionable images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)Q with the images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)K, and he would approve of 1images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes). Not coincidentally, that would also make 4images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) a great contract.

Comments:
EW managed to get to 5images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes) instead of 3NT on Board 18, but it was a lot tougher on this board. With only nine trumps, and no shortages, it seems natural to choose 3NT. If North overcalls in spades, that might give you a push towards 5images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes). It's rarely right to play in 3NT with only one stopper in the opponents' nine-card suit. Unless you can run nine tricks off the top, the defenders will always have four to cash as soon as they get on lead.
5images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes) isn't a great spot either, so well done to the pairs who stopped in 3images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes) with 25 HCP. Making 11 tricks in 3images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes) was a well-deserved 77% to EW.

2images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes) was a much more common spot than 2images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes), after a normal 1images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes)-1images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)-2images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes) auction. It's not usually a good idea to miss an eight-card spade fit, but on this occasion 2images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes) is a great spot. Double dummy, both 2images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes) (nine tricks) and 2images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) (eight tricks) return a score of 110. The big win for 2images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes): if you drop a trick in the card play (which many did) then in 2images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes) you still get a plus score.
Speaking of the card play, in 2images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes) you have six clubs and one trick in each side suit for nine in total. I'm assuming that many people ducked when North played the images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)K, and then never managed to get to dummy to take the trump finesse.

Comments:
At the time of writing, there are more pairs making 13 tricks in 3NT than making 12. This is due to a "pseudo squeeze" -- declarer won the images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)J at trick one, ran dummy's clubs, and East was not able to work out which suit to keep.
On the first six clubs, East can throw his last spade and three hearts. On the 7th club, he has to unguard one of his red queens. Ideally, he will be watching South's discards, and notice that South has already thrown two diamonds, so diamonds are no longer a threat.
South would have done better to cash one top spade (not both) before playing clubs -- then East will face his discard dilemma before South does. It's not obvious, but try it and see!

Comments:
There were a lot of pairs in 6images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes), and a huge number of them made 12 tricks. North will be really unhappy with this result.
The only lead to let 6images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) make is the images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)A, but you also need to be on your toes after leading the images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)A. A second diamond will put declarer in dummy to cash the images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)KQ, and so will a small heart switch! The only successful cards for North at trick two are the heart jack, a club, or, amusingly, the images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)A. Once you've cashed your images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)A, it's actually safe to get off lead passively with the images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)A.
Book prize for a unique top goes to Ron Wilson and John Lawrence of Bairnsdale for 6images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)xx.

NS winners' result: 2NT-S, EW100 (NS 48%)

Comments:
The popular contract here was 2images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes), which is one of several mysterious results in this set. Presumably South opened 1images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) (if South opens 1NT, it will be West who bids spades first). After South's 1images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) opening, I can't imagine any scenario where either North or South would bid the suit again.
As it turns out, most of the 2images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) bidders escaped for one off, which is a reasonable result with EW having missed 2images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes). On best (or close to best) defence, EW would take eight tricks against 2images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) (for example, images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes)AK, images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)AJ, club ruff, and then club leads will weaken South trumps for the big finish). 300 is worth 92% for EW, and one pair even doubled 2images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) to secure the big 99%.

Comments:
This hand belongs to EW, but it was almost universally played by NS, and usually below the "par" level. Both 2images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) and 2images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) gave many NS pairs a plus score, or, in most cases, -50. In 2images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes), South has the potential to make eight tricks by guessing who has the images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes)Q, but there is a fatal problem with entries. So long as EW ensure that South never gets on lead with the images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes)Q, 2images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) will fail. Beating 2images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) is tougher: EW must find their heart ruff.
In both cases, taking 2images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) or 2images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) one off, or even two off, is not as good as making 3images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes). Even the NS pairs who bid on to 3images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes), undoubled and two off, did better than if they had defended 3images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes).

Comments:
Despite our recommended auction, most Norths will raise 1NT to 2NT. This is understandable, although too aggressive for my taste.
Those who employ up the line bidding (1images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes)-1images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)-1images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)-2NT) will face an opening lead by East, and a club lead will make it impossible to score more than seven tricks. North should duck two rounds of clubs, then play on hearts. East should signal a diamond entry, and the defence will score four clubs, one heart and one diamond.
Bidding two suits (1images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes) then 1images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)) with a 3-4 shape is poor technique, and 1NT is our recommended rebid. Many people insist that bidding a second suit must promise an unbalanced hand; whether or not you subscribe to that view, it certainly should promise two actual suits.

Winners' result: Not played

Comments:
The worst results NS will be for those who reach 4images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) undisturbed, and go down two, the defence scoring a trick in spades, hearts and diamonds, as well as two clubs. This is easy on images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes)J lead, as long as EW switch to a spade after two rounds of clubs, and wait for their diamond trick.
Should East bid 4images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) over North’s 4images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes), as Ian Thomson did at the table? Many will succumb to this temptation, thinking that they are saving (when in actual fact it is NS who are saving). However, the East hand with its quacks (queens and jacks) is more suitable for defence than offence.
NS need to defend well to hold a spade contract to nine tricks – if they don’t take their diamond winners when in with images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)A, they will see East discarding all the diamonds on the menacing club suit.

Suggested result: 3NT-N, NS400
Winners' result: Not played

Comments:
With two balanced hands of identical shape, it is seldom right to play a suit contract. If South had opened 1NT on the South cards, North would not use Stayman with the 4-3-3-3 shape, so the suggested auction should be replicated many times around the room. It is difficult to see how 4images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) can make, with at least one loser in each suit. Likewise, 3NT has its own difficulties, with the defence able to set up one of their suits before declarer has enough tricks. It is a hand where EW should stay passive; certainly a heart lead from East will only help declarer.
A diamond lead by East works best; West has one entry, so can push through another diamond when in with images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes)K. Now East can wait for declarer to finesse in hearts (he has little choice but to take the finesse), and EW will have five tricks.

Comments:
In 4images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes), West’s success depends on North’s defence. North is endplayed into switching at trick two. If he switches to a club, this allows declarer home; declarer can cash a second top club, forcing North to ruff with the defence’s trump trick, losing only one spade, one diamond and one trump.
North’s correct switch is images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)K; with clubs not breaking, this makes declarer’s task too difficult, as there is no entry to dummy after setting up the club suit.
If North should try 3images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) after the suggested start to the auction (a 3images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) bid by West showing unwillingness to go further), East should double rather than going on to 4images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes), respecting partner’s opinion on the hand.

Suggested result: 3NT-S, EW50
Winners' result: Not played

Comments:
Despite the favourable vulnerability (not vulnerable against vulnerable), the suggested action by North in the example auction is not advised. With a hand that you would not open, and a boring shape, it is unwise to suggest to partner that the hand could belong to you by making a takeout double.
Left to his own device, East will probably bid 1images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) over 1images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes), trying to improve the contract, and will regret that when West rebids 2images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes). Now North might just venture a takeout double, holding the other two suits, but it is unlikely now that South will do more than bid 2NT, or bless him, pass.
Correct defence (a low heart lead, say or images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes)10 lead) will lead to at least one down, probably two down, so a bonus for the late takeout double for a switched on matchpoint pair.

Suggested result: 1NT-W, NS50
Winners' result: Not played

Comments:
The largest majority of the field played 2images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) NS, which should make on the nose, with two spade losers, one heart loser and two club losers. The suggested auction sees East make a lightish takeout double, which is not so attractive at equal vulnerability. If that happens, South should either start bidding out their shape with 1images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) or redouble to show 10+ HCP without a fit in clubs. Some pairs would consider this hand just a fraction light for the action.
It is better to make some bid over a takeout double, as otherwise West will bid 1NT, and that is only one down for +50 to NS.
Left to their own devices, those Norths who suppress a four-card major in the sequence 1images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes) – 1images/heartsm.gif (112 bytes) will rebid 1NT and play there. That struggles to make seven tricks, but invariably favourable leads and less than perfect declarer play will see any variety of tricks being made, from six to eight.

Winners' result: Not played

Comments:
After a 1images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes) bid by West, many Norths will be unable to resist either doubling or bidding 1NT. If that happens, and East passes, South should transfer to diamonds by way of a 2NT bid (transfer to diamonds). This left alone should be one down, but West may balance with 3images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes), and should have no trouble with making nine tricks.
The suggested auction sees North pass, with no clear cut bid available – the values for 1NT, but not the spade stop which is promised.
If NS do interfere at the three-level after first passing, once East has bid 1NT and West 2images/spadesm.gif (111 bytes), East has enough to compete to the three-level in spades with the eight-card fit.

Comments:
South's 1NT rebid is not perfect, with two doubletons, but sometimes you have to make the least misleading call. A few Souths rebid 2images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes) with the slightly unbalanced hand, and several were left to play there -- this is why it is best to have six cards when you bid a suit twice.
Conservative Norths will pass 1NT, just like board 28, but those who appreciate the spot cards (images/diamondsm.gif (109 bytes)10 and images/clubsm.gif (113 bytes)98) will invite.
If North does invite, South will probably accept, with the strong five-card diamond suit. With both partners having taken the aggressive view, naturally the result was a contract that succeeded about 40% of the time. At Matchpoints, unlike IMPs, conservatism can pay dividends.

Comments:
The given auction, with Howard Melbourne as South, will not have been everyone's choice. If you have the methods to show a 23-24 notrump at the two-level, you may have been able to stop in 2NT.
If you don't bid the hearts, you will get a heart lead against 2NT or 3NT. Declarer can play four rounds of clubs ending in hand, watching West’s discards. Even if West has not thrown a heart, the next step is to play on hearts, putting West on lead for him to set up one of your kings. If West has discarded a heart, you may even come to a ninth trick.
East-West's signalling will play an important part in NS's result here.
Thanks for playing in our Australia-Wide event. Our next one will be the Restricted Pairs, 25-31 October.
