Alje's Tips for Tops

Time to introduce another new toy.

Most partnerships employ some kind of convention for when the opponents open 1NT. Among the most common are Landy – where a 2♣ overcall shows the majors and all other bids are natural – and DONT (disturbing the opponents’ one ntrump). DONT shows the suit you bid as well as a higher ranking suit. For example, if you bid 2♣ over the opponents’ 1NT opening bid, you show clubs and one of the three other suits; if you bid 2♦, you show diamonds and either hearts or spades (the only 2 higher-ranking suits. A double is no longer penalty. Instead, it shows a single-suited hand.

Many people have elected to play a modified version of DONT, developed by many-time world champions Eric Rodwell and Jeff Meckstroth. In Meckwell version of DONT, double shows one of the minor suits OR both major suits. Partner is required to bid 2♣ after you double. If clubs is your suit, you simply pass; if you have diamonds, you bid 2♦. If instead, you happen to hold both majors, you bid 2♥ over partner’s forced 2♣ response. Partner passes if he prefers hearts and corrects to 2♠ if he likes spades.

As in regular DONT, a 2♣ overcall shows clubs and higher ranking suit while a 2♦ bid promises diamonds and a high-ranking suit. However, since you now use an initial double to show both majors, a 2♥ overcall now shows long hearts while 2♠ promises long spades.

The main advantage of Meckwell DONT is that no matter what partner responds, you will always be able to agree on a suit at the 2-level. That makes it safer to use Meckwell DONT on borderline hands.
