Analysis by Fred Ferguson

And yet again another big high card points hand that does not go anywhere.

Bidding* After 3 passes East with a balanced 20 hcp opens the bidding 2NT. With points divided North 7 hcp and South 8 hcp it is unlikely North or South compete in this auction. West bids 3 (Puppet Stayman) and East bids 3NT denying a 5 or 4-card major.

Play* Given time to set up spades and diamonds declarer (East) can make a lot of tricks but South jumps on clubs right away and East must set up diamonds for the extra trick in diamonds.
