1NT 2♣* P
2* P 2 P
4 P P P


East opens a weak NT (12-14), South overcalls 2♣* which this North-South pair are playing as Landy. Landy is a convention played over an opponent’s opening of 1NT and it agrees that a 2♣* overcall shows at least 5/4 in the majors. North bids 2* which asks South to further describe their hand, principally looking for which major is their 5 card suit. South bids 2 and North takes a shot a game with their opening hand. West opens the defence with the ♣Q and it looks as if we have 2 diamond losers and 2 potential trump losers – what is your plan to try and avoid losing 4 tricks here?
