M C & G  Bridge Studio   24-Jul-2016

TIP OF THE WEEK: It is summer and just like the kids out of school, summer is a time to review.  When you take a course and learn new things about bridge some of it does not really gel.  By now you have likely witnessed some of the bids or techniques at the table.  When you review those old notes, it will probably make perfect sense now!

CONGRATULATIONS & KUDOS Thank you everyone for pitching in while Bill & I are in Washington.  We will have some great surprises for you when we get back!  Our District 1 Open Team (from Montreal) made it to the semi-finals - something we have not done in a looonnnggg time - Congratulations to the Fergani team.

THIS WEEK'S BRIDGE QUIZ:
You hold:
         S K J
         H A K Q
         D A K J 3
         C K Q J 5
You open the bidding with 2C and partner bids 2D (waiting) what is your rebid?

 SOLUTION TO LAST WEEK'S QUIZ:
You  hold:
    S A
    H A K Q J 10 7 5
    D K Q 5
    C A 3
You would open 2 clubs with this hand, and partner bids 2D (waiting) what is your rebid?

Answer:  Bid 3H a  jump bid after a 2C opening bid says that you are playing  in THAT suit.  In this case you would bid 3 Hearts.  It asks partner to start bidding aces.  If partner does not have an Ace, they can bid 3NT to show a King otherwise with no Ace or King they would redid 4 or your major.  Over partner's 3NR rebid showing a King; if you are interested in finding out which one; you would bid 4 Clubs and partner will show their first King or bid 4 of the trump suit to show King of Clubs.

See you at the tables,
