Analysis by Robert Todd

East passes and South opens 1. West overcalls 1NT, so North passes. East has nowhere to go, and South's not good enough to bid again, so that looks like that.
It turns out that NS had a fit and could have successfully played in a partscore there, but this also might not work out so great for the declarer. The defense can take the first 4 tricks, but then declarer probably gets 4, 1, and 2. To beat this, the defense has to very carefully preserve an entry to North's hand by not cashing all the right away and then squeeze West in - very hard to find, so there may be lots of different scores on this board!
