NOVICES TIP 755

          When there is a choice between Opening 1 of a Suit and 1NT   there is NO CHOICE you Open 1NT the LIMIT BID   

             so with

A Q J 6                open 1NT here (12-14points)

K Q J 2                     

5 4                                                       

7 6 5 

NB  ALL REBID PROBLEMS OCCUR BECAUSE SOMEBODY FORGOT TO OPNE 1NT IN THE FIRST PLACE

 

      

 

 

         INTERMEDIATES TIP 755

      Not sure what to reply to partner's Opening bid after an intervening bid the NEGATIVE DOUBLE comes to the rescue most of the time

         e.g.

       

 7 6                Partner opens 1 and next player overcall 1   so now you are a bit stuck  your 6 points

K 7 6 2         so just say Double - I have the ability to reply with my 6+ points and I also do               

A 5 4                                                   have a four card Heart suit.      

7 6 5 2

 

 

 

ADVANCED TIP  755

Once you Open 1 or 1  and partner replies 2 of same suit and you have good 15+points and want to INVITE GAME then use a TRIAL BID and bid a suit where you need to help to make tht elusive 10th trick should the contract end up in 4 or 4

e.g.

 A Q 7 6 5    after partner replies 2  to your 1 opener now make

K 7 6                     TRIAL BID of 3 or 3

2

A Q 5 4
