Analysis by Craig Hemphill

NS just don't have the wherewithal to compete significantly. If North decides to make a Responsive Double after 2 by West, it is true that 3 will be a good enough contract, even doubled, but after a routine 3 by East, further action by NS will be subject to punishment (by West, holding good defense in the form of diamond values).

Nine tricks in hearts seem easy enough and there won't be many fireworks on this hand -- just a warmup exercise.
