M C & G Bridge Studio 28-Jun-2015
Tip of the Week:
negative double is a useful tool, but have you discussed with partner what to
expect for strength? Since a negative double is vague as to the exact
strength most partnerships will agree that the minimum strength
for a negative double over a 1-level overcall (1D/1H/1S) is typically 6 or more
points. Over 2C/2D the negative doubler should have 8 + points and
after an overcall of 2H/2S the strength of the negative double should be 9+
points, and if the opponents overcall at the three level (3C/3D/3H/3S) a
negative double would show 10+ points.

Solution to Last Weeks Quiz:
partner opens the bidding with a pre-emptive 2-H call and your RHO has passed.
What do you respond holding the following:
8 7 4
9 6 2
K 9 7 6 2
know your side is not going to make game, but the opponent may very likely be
able to. RHO has passed so you are quite sure LHO has a very good hand.
Try to make it more challenging for them to find their right suit and right
level. Bid 3H! This is NOT an invitational bid for partner to take
another call, you are captain of this hand. LHO is uncertain how good our
hand is and may even pass - the Law of Total Tricks suggest that you are
likely safe to play at the level of the number of tricks your side holds.
you at the tables,
