Opener’s and Responder’s Second bids

27  or  29  April

You’ve opened, your partner has responded.   Where the heck do you go from here?????

Do you realise that your next bids should establish not only a bottom range but also a top range for your point count?

Do you know when a bid is a “forcing bid” and what it means?

Do you know what a “reverse” is?

Everything you need to know about bidding but were too afraid to ask!



4  or  6  May

Double Double

Toil and Trouble

Contracts will burn and Partners bubble

You’ll get in a right Muddle

If you can’t Double

Most club players don’t use doubles anywhere near enough!

Doubles don’t increase the bidding level and are therefore a great way to give information to your partner.

Did you know that there are 4 basic kinds of doubles all with different meanings?

You need to double!!  Often!!


Opening Leads

11  or  13  May

You are on Opening Lead.  What are you going to choose and why?

The Opening Lead is often the most crucial decision you make as a defender!

The Opening Lead can often make or break the opposition’s contract.

It is your first point of attack.    

Are you up to it, or do you just choose the 3rd card from the left.

Is partner likely to say “What were you thinking!!???!!”


Pre-emptive Bidding

18  or  20  May

“I haven’t got many points in my hand, but I’ve got an awful lot of hearts! Shouldn’t I let partner know about this?”


“My partner has made a bid that tells me that they have an awful lot of hearts.  What do I do now?  How do I know how many points they’ve got?   My hand’s quite good.  Maybe we can go higher to game level.  Help!      Should I do something?”


Pre-emptive bids have got the added benefit that these bids get right up the opposition’s nose!!!
