Analysis by Fred Ferguson

Like the others today, here is another crazy makeable contract but an impossible auction. From the double dummy analysis North can make 3NT.

Bidding: South deals and with 11 high card points , a nice diamond suit KJ10982 and just 6 losers opens the bidding 1. West passes and North responds 1. East passes and South rebids 2. And East doubles as a balancing double. West bids 2 and North bids 3 and then West bids 3 and South bids 4.

The only way for North to play in notrump is instead of competing in 3 is to bid 2NT, but the auction still probably will not reach 3NT.

Play: West dutifully leads the 9 which declarer (South) wins in dummy with A and leads a diamond to finesse for the Q. West wins the A and leads another spade which South ruffs and pulls the Q. Hearts and clubs might play out differently but all South looses are 2 hearts.
