ALERTS (bids are in red on the convention card)
Alerts are meant to inform the OPPONENTS that a bid’s meaning, by your partner, is not what would customarily be assumed. Who says ALERT? The person making the alert knows what he means by the bid, so the partner must inform the opponents by only saying ALERT. DO NOT volunteer information unless asked. I repeat, only when the opponent at their turn asks, do you explain.
How do I ask about an alert? Explain please, what is your agreement?
ANNOUNCEMENTS (bids are in blue on the convention card)
Announcements are also informing the opponents about your partners’ bid.
We must announce our NT range (15-17, 12-14, 16-18 etc), When partner makes a transfer bid, we announce it. When you play 1NT forcing/semi-forcing, you announce it. When partner opens 1C and does not promise at least 3 clubs, you announce that it could be short as ? .
