M C & G Bridge Studio 24-May-2015
Tip of the Week:
you and your partner have specific SPECIAL agreement the following is considered
When you bid Stayman your hand MUST contain at least 1 four-card ONLY suit!
That is a guarantee! Now if over a 2D rebid by opener you can rebid a
major to show a 5 / 4 distribution and invitational hand by bidding it at
the 2 level and force to game by bidding the 5-card major at the 3 level.
With a 6 / 4 hand you can start with Stayman and if partner bids 2D you can
bid game with the 6-card suit.

is tempting to win the S-A and then pull trump but you have 2 spades to lose
and the Ace of Trumps, as well there is the D-A looming out there. Consider
the Order you must eliminate a loser before you pull trumps. Play
your clubs first, start with the Queen then over to dummy to play the Ace &
King - discarding one of your losing spades. Now you can play your spades,
the opponents will only get 1 spade trick.
are off to the game now -- wish us luck.
you at the tables
