M C & G Bridge Studio 28-Feb-2016
OF THE WEEK: The
Negative double. When your partner opens the bidding with '1 club'
and RHO overcalls '1 diamond' – you can bid either '1 heart' or '1 spade' with
just four cards. If you have 4 hearts & 4 spades – then you
make a NEGATIVE double – two for one shot!. If your RHO overcalls '1
heart' – your bid of '1 spade' PROMISES a 5-card suit! With just 4
spades you make a NEGATIVE double.

WEEK'S BRIDGE QUIZ:
Your RHO opens the bidding with 1-D and with this hand you make a take out double:
S - A K Q 5
H – K J 7 2
D – J
C – Q J 7 3
Your partner responds with 1-S and RHO passes. What is your next call?
SOLUTION TO QUIZ from Feb. 14th:
You are the declarer and you are in your hand for the last and need to win four tricks with this combination of spades:
S – A Q 10 2
S – J 9 3
what order will you play the cards?
Solution to card play:
Playing TOWARD the dummy - start with the S-9
from your hand. If that wins you are in your hand and able to play the S-J
and finally the S-3 to make sure you trap your LHO's King.
you at the tables,
