Analysis by Fred Ferguson

This is a classic case of bidding out your hand. Bridge Winners can see the bidding footnotes on: http://thecommongame.com

Bidding: West opens the bidding 1 and East responds 1 (assuming North/South remain silent) West rebids 1NT defining a 12-14 high card points balanced hand. If East just rebids 2 it will look like a retreat from notrump and West will pass 2. East must bid out his shape and values by rebidding 3 in which case West, on a maximum with A102 should be willing to bid 4.

Play: The only tricky part of the play of this deal is finessing for the J. You forget about the A and play to find the J. Bridge Winners can see the trick by trick play on: http://thecommongame.com
