Another Slam Hand
Another Slam Hand

07/09/23 Hand 13

Sitting South you pick up a very strong hand and are surprised to see partner open the bidding. 

The 2   is a conventional bid for this partnership.  In fact none of the bids shown are natural! 

This time the bid probably shows a weak two in spades. South bids 2 NT to ask and North confirms a top-of-the range weak two in spades, so South asks for aces (including king of trumps). North's reply shows one.

What do you bid next?

Not too difficult, I think.  The obvious bid is 6♠  although a grand slam can be made because the Queen of Hearts is favourably placed. 

At the table a heart was lead and the play is straight-forward.
