an eight card fit 100% of the time.

This weeks Bridge Quiz:
Right Hand Opponent opens the bidding with 1H; and it is your turn to call with
the following hand:
S Q 4 2
H Q J 7
D Q J 6 5 2
C A 6
do you do??
Solution to Last Weeks Quiz:
are sitting South, the dealer is North, your partner. The auction
S J 8 4 3
H Q 10 7 5 2
C K 8 5
is your call?
out while the getting is good. PASS! The auction suggests
that partner has 5 diamonds and 4 clubs, and likely very few hearts.
And it is not clear where the spades are. To bid 2NT you would need
about 11 points and it invites partner to bid 3NT. The heart suit is too
poor to rebid. So accept the 4-3 fit in clubs it builds character.
you at the tables,
