Stayman or Not III


  by Richard Pavlicek

[First read Stayman or Not? and Part II]

Now suppose the four-card major is stronger (still 4-3-3-3 with one unstopped suit) as the following hand:

South
1 NT

Will a stronger four-card major narrow (or eliminate) the advantage of 3 NT? Let’s find out.

To compare options I created 10,000 random deals with the North hand fixed. South 15-17 HCP; 4-5 spades; freakness 0-2 (balanced); and if five spades, doubleton must be J-x or better (my philosophy). Further, to exclude deals where West would interfere: West 0-14 HCP if balanced; 0-10 HCP if 4-4-4-1; or 0-11 revalued points if unbalanced with a 5+ card suit.

No, the opposite! The stronger major increases the edge for 3 NT. Even the previous slim advantage at matchpoints is gone. Evidence is mounting to forget about Stayman on flat hands. One more follow-up: Stayman or Not IV.

Trick Avg shows the average number of tricks won by declarer. Make Pct shows the percent of time the contract is made. Matchpoints shows the raw total (European style: 2 for a win, 1 for a tie) and effective scoring percent. Total Points and IMPs are shown similarly as raw totals and percents, with separate accountings for N-S nonvulnerable and N-S vulnerable. (Vulnerability does not affect matchpoints.)

Below are 100 of the 10,000 deals, including the first 10 and last 10, and selected deals in-between where the choice of contract made a significant difference. The number of tricks won by declarer is shown for each contract, assuming double-dummy play by both sides.
