M C & G Bridge Studio 17-Dec-2017
TIP OF THE WEEK: Most of us now
play Jacoby Transfers, which tends to work very well, but did you know that if
you make a Jacoby Transfer (diamonds to hearts or hearts to spades)
experts agree that a bid of a new suit is 100% forcing to game. 1NT
- 2H – 3D**;
responder shows partner 5 hearts and at least 4 diamonds and game going values (2D*shows
5 hearts, 3D**
4 or more diamonds).
KUDOS A very big THANK YOU to
Victor, Doug, Carol, LIZ and Bev who are picking up the slack while Bill & I
are on vacation. Palm Springs is warm and dry - a lovely place to be. Gary
Brown has also volunteered to help out and will be giving our newer players an
opportunity to see Gary in action. Thank you every one.
