Opening 1NT with a singleton:† Itís officially legal

Opening 1NT with a singleton:  It’s officially legal

The ACBL Board of Directors removed a legal gray area surrounding semi-balanced notrump openers when it approved a change to the definition of a notrump opening in the General Convention Chart. The change allows players to open 1NT with hands that include a singleton ace, king or queen, as long as they do not also contain a doubleton.

Here is the new definition, effective Aug. 1:

“A notrump opening or overcall is natural if, by agreement, it contains no void, at most one singleton which must be the A, K or Q and no more than two doubletons. If the hand contains a singleton, it may have no doubleton.”

Bridge Etiquette
  1. Greet opponents as they arrive at your table.
  2. Make your opening lead face down before writing down the contract  and ask your partner if there are any questions to prevent you from making a lead out of turn.
  3. For any irregularity, call the director.  "Director, Please."
