Analysis by Ed Antosz

A rather elaborate auction will get EW to the notrump game.

Most play that a 2NT opener shows 20 - 21 HCPs so on this deal /west will open 2 and then bid notrump showing 22 - 24 HCPs. East bids 3 to check for a major suit fit. There are many variations of how to play this sequence and responses however West will show hearts and East will bid the notrump game.

The lead is irrelevant as West has 12 tricks. She has five hearts, five diamonds and two clubs. South will eventually score her A
