M C & G Bridge Studio 11-Sep-2016
TIP OF THE WEEK: Consider making
your overcall then double when you have a good 5-card suit and about 12
– 16 HCP. Doubling and bidding shows a
GOOD 17+ hand. Holding S – AK876; H-3 2; D-AJ4; C-K65.
After RHO opens 1 heart, just overcall 1 spade, then if they raise to 2 hearts
you can now
double – showing your 5-card spades suit, shortness in the
opponent's suit and at least 3-cards in the other suits.

THIS WEEK'S BRIDGE QUIZ:
You hold the following hand:
S – A J 7 6 5 4 2
H – Q 5 4
D – 6
C - 8 5
What is your opening bid?
Answer to last week's quiz:
Whether you play Jacoby 2NT or Standard American choose what you would rebid.
S – A K 10 7 5
H – J 9 6 3
D – J
C – K 7 6
open the bidding with 1S and partner bids 2NT. What is your rebid.
If you are playing a standard system you should bid 3H. Describe your 5-4 hand, you felt it was good enough to open - go through with it.
Playing Jacoby 2NT – your rebid is 3D! You do not rebid spades because you are a minimum hand, your partner is the captain, you must bid your singleton - it is part of the system.
