Tip  of the Week:

When discarding we use positive inferences by discarding HIGH to tell partner we like a suit and we usually use a negative inference to tell partner we do not like a suit.  When defending against a NoTrump contact it is better to use NEGATIVE signals in suits we do not want led, rather than a positive signal from our good suit – as we usually want to keep as many cards as possible in our GOOD suit.

Solution to Last  Week’s Quiz:

You open the bidding with 2 Diamonds holding:

S -  6 5 3

H – K 6

D – A J 10 9 6 3

C – 10 4

 

Your partner responds with 2 Hearts.  What is your rebid?

 

Bid 3 Hearts – Although you would like to have 3-card support, a doubleton honour will work as partner has at least 5 hearts and most likely 6.  Partner has a good hand, and showing support is the most descriptive bid you can make.
