M C & G Bridge Studio 19-Jun-2016
TIP OF THE WEEK: Try to develop the
attitude of the experts each deal is unique and separate and should not
influence your performance on subsequent deals. Put aside a bad result and
start fresh with the next 13 cards! Successful partnerships will discuss
difficult hands and situations where something went wrong after the session and

D J 8 5 3 2
C - -------
lovely 4 HCP and your partner opens the bidding with 1NT any idea what you
want to do now?
Let us think this through you could pass because you do NOT have enough for game. Or you might decide that your hand is worth way more if you and partner have a 4-4 major suit fit. GOOD START. So you bid 2C STAYMAN. This cannot go bad. Partners ONLY choices are to bid 2-H (with 4 hearts) or 2-S (with 4 spades) and you intend to PASS either of those bids. Without a 4-card major suit, partner is obligated to bid 2-D denying a major suit. Over any of partners choices all you plan on doing is PASS!! Can partner bid something else NO! Partner has described 15-17 HCP and a balanced hand, YOU are the Captain - so take charge. Partner does not have the option to bid anything other than the bids you expect 2S, 2H or 2D. 2NT is not an option, the responder is the CAPTAIN, the opener DESCRIBES.
