C & G Bridge Studio 24-Aug-2014
Tip of the Week:
bids can be constructive for a partnership as it lets partner know early what
your hand looks like a hand with fewer than opening points and a long suit.
If the pre-emptive suit is a major suit it is usually best to play in the
major. If the pre-emptive suit is a minor tread carefully. It is
seldom correct to try 3NT many try it, but it seldom works.
this week go to -- the NEW team on the block Joanne Belanger, Russell
Stacey, Fran MacCormack and Bill Waters. Placing 1st in B &
C and 2nd overall in last Saturdays Up the Ranks Team Game
A special note I have recently received word that one of our
bridge players, Peter Van der Borsch, is now in palliative care.
He has family at his side.

D A 2
C A K Q 9 8 7 6
open the bidding with 1C (that was easy), LHO passes, and
partner bids 1H, RHO passes. What is your rebid?
Solution to Last Weeks Quiz:
the bidding you hold:
S K Q 8
H A J
D K J 9 7 5
C K 10 6
have LOTS of good intermediate cards, an opening bid of 1NT covers the
17HCP but this hand great potential. Open 1D with a plan to
rebid 2NT! You must admit this hand looks more like 18
points than 17. I bet you even counted this hand twice J
you at the tables,
