M C & G Bridge Studio 31-Jul-2016
TIP OF THE WEEK: Be disciplined
with your takeout doubles! Do not make a takeout double without support
for the unbid suits - - even with 13 points! Partner will likely bid your
doubleton and you will compound your error by bidding NoTrump – Yikes!
PASS with your 13 or 14 points; you will likely get a second chance. Say
your RHO opens 1C and you hold S: A 10 6 5, H: K 7, D: A J 9 7, C: J 10 7.
Unless you want to overcall a 4-card suit PASS. Likely your LHO will bid
hearts and RHO will raise to two hearts or bid 1 NT. NOW you can double to
show spades and diamonds, the unbid suits.
BRIDGE STUDIO IS OPEN TOMORROW (NATAL
DAY) AT 12:30 AND FOR JUST PLAY BRIDGE AT 7:00.
