My partner has opened and I'm in a fix, because I must pass with less than six.
If my count is six, but less than ten, I must respond once but not again.
Now 10 - 12 points is fairly nice. I will plan to speak clearly not once, but twice!
With 13 or more points I'd be to blame if all bidding stopped before we reached game.
With that game-going hand I don't wait too long to mention a suit that seems to be strong.
With five cards or longer I need not be mute, I'll certainly open with one of that suit,
but I've two lots of four cards - ah that's the rub. I know I must open, but one heart or one club?
With 12 - 14 one Notrump will do and with 20 or more I should open "Two"
When the opponents have opened, my back's to the wall, I have a good length so must overcall.
But I've two 5 card suits - what shall I do? Perhaps now's the time to use Michael's cue!
