Analysis by Raad Bunni

I am not sure that East wants to get in on this auction. After 1 bid by North, East does not have the right shape for a takeout double. It will be a big mistake if he bids 1NT. I would pass and see what N/S do. Ending in 1NT South can establish . You win the A, promote s for 8 tricks.

Analysis by Robert Todd

South opens 1 and West might overcall 1, but should really think about not bidding on this very puny 8-count, red - he could, however, make a Michaels Cue Bid 2 bid. North can then make a 2 cuebid to show his limit raise in support of , but East goes right to 4. South bids 5 as a slam try, basically asking for help in , but North doesn't have that at all, so he signs off in 5.
It won't really even help if the defense leads because those pitches don't do South any good - he still loses 2 and 1. (EW weren't that far off of making 4 either!)
