M C & G Bridge Studio 22-Mar-2015
Tip of the Week:
idea of the opponent’s pre-emptive opening bid is to make it more challenging
for you and your partner to find your best fit and level. However, many
things remain the same after the Opponent’s pre-emptive opening, but there are
some things that change.
if you make a jump overcall over a 1-level bid it is pre-emptive
for your side – BUT a jump overcall after an opponent’s
pre-empt shows a strong hand; a very good 6-card or longer
suit with too much strength for a simple overcall. Remember the old time
adage “Don’t pre-empt over an opponent’s pre-empt.”
