Analysis by Fred Ferguson

We have seen so many unbiddable deals today, lets see if we can legitimately get to a grand slam.

Bidding: North deals and opens the bidding 3. East might trying to make some kind of two suited takeout, but in the auction here East bids 4. If West bids something like 5, East/West should be able to get to 6, but that is not good enough in this deal.

In the auction here West bids 4 as a forcing raise in hearts. East bids 5 as a control bid and West bids 5 as a control bid. East shows 1st and 2nd round control in clubs with 6 and West bids of 6NT says pick a slam. East ops for 7.

Play: Not much to the play of this deal, 1 spade, 6 hearts, 3 diamonds and 5 clubs = 15 tricks ought to be enough.
