West starts the bidding with a 3♠ opener over which North has a difficult bid. North’s hand seems too good to pass but an overcall of 4♣ seems a bit ‘one-dimensional’. A takeout double is the best bid for North in my opinion, and South only really has one bid they can make over that, which is to take a shot at 3NT. West unsurprisingly starts off with a top spade lead – what is your play in this NT game?
