M C & G Bridge Studio 20-Aug-2017
TIP OF THE WEEK: Do not count
anything for singletons and doubletons originally. Short suits are
valuable only when you have support for partner. Wait & see. You
hold: S-A764; H-3; D-Q874; C-10876. Original count is SIX points.
If partner opens 1H, your hand had actually gotten worse. If partner opens
1S, add three support points for the singleton.

S – 8 4
H – A K J 9 7 5 4 3
D – void
C – Q J 9
Answer to Last Week's Quiz:
What is your call? You are the opening bidder holding the following:
S – A Q 7 6 5
H – A K 8 7 6
D – A J
C – 9
Opener (You) Responder (Partner)
Solution: As the opener you
are pretty sure partner has only taken a ‘preference’ back to spades once
you showed him you have two suits. Partner more than likely has just TWO
spades. As opener your next call should be 4H to confirm a 5 card suit and
now if partner has 3-card heart support they are comfortable passing you in your
8 card heart fit, rather than leaving you in the 7 card spade fit.
